  • Only had a single night in Dubai during pre-cruise stopover. A great way of getting a flavour of Dubai by night. Enjoyed Dhow cruise very much and buffet fare was excellent. Entertainment on board was very good, especially Whirling Dervish dancer and magician. Even joined in the dancing, much to everyone else's amusement.

  • Everything perfect. The pick up at the hotel was on time. Wide variety of food on board with excellent service and very kind service. probably the best floating restaurant on Dubai. Also a small show was interesting. They offered photos and gadgets but they do not insist at all if you are not interesting. On our way back our original driver did not arrive but the manager of the restaurant called and pre paid a taxi for us. So it has been a very nice experience. Really recommended.

  • There was nothing necessarily wrong with the cruise. The cruise is not in the main city and is a very small loop for 2hrs. If you are going for the views, I would not recommend this cruise. However, it was a nice lovely date night that was something different from the typical restaurant meal. The buffet was decent. I do want to add that the live show was great! The live singer and the dancer were amazing.

  • Excellent. Very nice food and attentive service.
    Especially liked the Arabic dancers, magician and all of the other entertainment

  • Great night due to an afternoon tour we were unaware of pick up time, we got a taxi to the Dhow and the crew asured us we could get a bus home, which they made sure we did. Food was great full smorgasbords not many on the boat down stairs so heaps of food, more people elected to be on the top and as there were only two tables total of 7 people after we had eaten the staff took the food up to the smorgasbord on the top deck which I thought was an excellent idea, crew doubled as an act to entertain the guests and did a great job, there was also onboard a singer, henia tattooist, characture artist and a magician what more could you ask for . Bus trip home provided plenty of laughs all in all an excellent night

  • This was a lovely cruise. The food was very good and plentious. The entertainment was very nice, seemed authentic.

  • A must do in Dubai

  • This continues my review of my tour groups favorite experience in Dubai! Our best experience ever and cannot wit to recommend this fantastic over the top experience to others who visit Dubai. Thanks Viator and Mr Bismal Khan.

  • Most enjoyable cruise and an excellent meal on board. However the Dhow was less than 1/4 full and for this reason the atmosphere on board was somewhat down-beat and the promised three hour cruise turned out to be only two hours.

  • Nettes Erlebnis. Personal sehr freundlich und offen. Essen war lecker. Ingesamt alles natürlich einen Tourirouch. Schade war nur, dass die Scheiben beschlagen haben während der Fahrt und die 2er Tische nicht zum Wasser ausgerichtet waren. Insgesamt aber empfehlenswert!
