Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    afternoon tour on 7/24. the temp was 107 and feels like was 125 it was hot, but the tour was awesome went all around the palm showing you all the main parts of it and gave you plenty time for taking pics. the staff was very kind and caring. we sat next to the captain, and he gave us much more info about the palm. the BBQ was just ok, but for us the staff made up for it. we went in the off-season prices are lower, but you just have to deal with the heat, no worries drink plenty of water and wear a hat and save a lot of money

    This tour exceeded our expectations. Hanze’s well crafted your gave us information on Dubai’s history, culture, traditions and more. We had water provided throughout the trip and had several stops with AC to cool off in. Our tour took us to a traditional home, many souks, a trip across the creek in an abra and offered many treats along the way we wouldn’t have known to look for. Hanze answered all questions thoroughly, provided suggestions beyond the tour and made sure everyone was taken care of at the end of the trip. This was a great way to start our vacation!

    Excellent staff and service, food was 7/10 as you'd expect for the price, drinks limited to few basic options, unfortunately the humid weather made it uncomfortable for us but the weather is obviously outside the operators control! The sights were stunning.

    Overall a pleasant experience and would recommend.

    It was a fantastic dining experience aboard the Luxury. From the reception, food, desserts, staff, musician, all very attentive, cordial and lively. The itinerary is great with enough time to eat and enjoy the view of the illuminated city. congratulations to the whole crew for the beautiful service provided. Here in Brazil, this beautiful moment lived aboard the Luxury Cruise will always be in my memory

    Suggested by many, we opted for Marina Dhow Cruise instead of Creek Dhow Cruise. It was wonderful choice. We viewed all Marina Bay on the cruise. It was a wonderful experience. Food at Marina Dhow Cruise was Delicious. There was Tanoura Dance show also. We enjoyed the Dance very much. It was our first Day at Dubai so we enjoyed the view from the Cruise very much. Wonderful architecture & infrastructure of Dubai is visible from the cruise. Moreover all the skyscrapers with different shapes and throught lighted looked gorgeous. Must take a ride in Cruise.

    A trip that should be done at the start of your trip to familiarise yourself with the emirate. We waited until near the end of our tour and by that stage we had already been to Atlantis and the Burj Khalifa. Abra was our tour guide and he was very informative and we learned lots from him. Pleasant way to spend a few hours.

    The boat was fully private and used for a video shoot, brand content. Only reason I’m not giving it a 5 stars is because it was book for 6-8 to catch some day light, and the time was changed by the host to 7-9pm last minute so everything was done at night and it through us off. They also came 15 mins late which cut into our time. Otherwise everything else went well.

    Amazing experience! Our Captain and crew were very knowledgeable and fun! Making 360 dougnuts with the boat was enjoyable. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to do a speedboat tour. God willing, will do it again with them when visiting Dubai again.
    Tip for the company: playing music during the ride will make it an even more incredible experience. 😃

    We took an evening cruise with Captain Sarath at the helm ! It was entertaining to say the least, with nice round up of Dubai Marina and the seascape. Captain Sarath is probably the best Captain you can hope for - he is incredibly focused on making your experience a memorable one ! He is super well informed and engaging. If you are in Dubai don't miss it ...

    Took the 90 minutes tour. Had about three 10-minute sessions of high-speed sailing with the rest being slow-paced to enjoy the city views and take photos. Really fun!
    You can sit in the front/back depending on how much "bounciness" you want to feel (the back is more stable). Recommend booking a time just before sunset so you can see the city light up on the way back!
