    This trip is worth not five but ten stars. From the check in desk, aboard the yacht and disembarking. Excellent service all the way on board. The guys were amazing!!! Captain Rama, Barak, Kumar, Zaha, Leslie and Niraj were the most welcoming, going the extra mile for all the quests on board, they made my trip extra special. I appreciate and commend all their hard work. Did I mention… they take the best photos. I will never forget this day.. Food and drinks was great. Got to see all the hotspots in Dubai while cruising on this lush yacht. I surely will be back again!!!

    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.

    This is the best we have some in Dubai during our holiday, complete eye-opening experience with Mohamed .
    The way he explained about the culture, religion and Jesus in Islam!!! This part was a highlight for me from the whole tour.
    Highly recommended

    We did this as a family of four with children aged 13 and 10 . Our trip left at 18.00 so we saw the landmarks in daylight, then saw the sunset before returning to Dubai marina with all the buildings lit up. The whole 90 minutes was brilliant with great views, photo opportunities, a great rib ride and even a disco!

    nice trip, friendly staff, Nice Music Performance.
    recommended.
    Only two comments for improvement:

    - Queue is long and take time to enter the cruise. It needs two persons to manage the flow of people rather than 1 person.

    - Food is not at good taste and suggested to work on it.

    Had a lovely time on this cruise, the sights as the boat goes down the canal was lovely it's quite something to behold. The music on the boat was relaxing and it was good for dinner. Would have given a 5 but for the food though it was nice they could have offered more variety. I would definitely recommend if you want to see the sights at night.

    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.

    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. 😃

    Wow … The staff and the boat left me speechless! We had the experience on one of their private yachts with our own staff and they really made it the best day ever. When we first arrived the service was incredible, they were all lined up ready for when we boarded with a red carpet. Once we were on board they let us wander around and opened up the champagne. They let us set up our own music on the speakers and took photos of us and let us know where to go for the best photos on the yacht. They bought snacks up to us throughout and then started cooking the bbq for us later in the evening. The staff were so professional and polite and made sure that we always had a drink and food in hand. We are already thinking of next time we are in Dubai of bringing some friends on board too! If you want something that extra special for your trip in Dubai then you should 100% book this experience. The photos and memories that they made for us is unforgettable and will always remember this lifetime experience! Thank you so much to all the crew and captain - Velmu, Pradeep, Asolin, Veera You are all so incredible!

    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.

    We were booked for a dinner cruise. Before securing the cruise for a large party, we informed the company of are specific time requirements. They stated it would not be a problem, and we were given a time and told the cruise would only last two hours. On the day of the cruise, we did not get a time confirmed until two hours before we were supposed to leave. The time had changed to an hour later, and then we were informed that the cruise was for four hours.
    We asked for a refund, and we were told No because all of the information had been provided to us at the time of booking. This was false. We were offered a $25 gift certificate after we spent $700. Then they sent erroneous text messages stating they tried to accommodate us, again not valid. I do not recommend this company.
