“Unable to book-up”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I tried numerous times to telephone this operator to book the cruise however the telephone is always unavailable. Obviously they have lost my custom and cannot be bothered with running a proper business.

“"A Romantic Evening"”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

It was a special day for both of us "me and my wife". It was our wedding anniversary and my first time to do this tour. We booked from GoDubai Tour Agency and it was a "Romantic Experience". The ambiance and arrangement of the cruise were fantastic especially the food we eat was a five star dining, the entertainment was really amazing we really enjoyed a lot. GoDubai Tour Agency gave us the memorable evening for me and for my wife. It was a fabulous experience as a couple! Amazing for GoDubai Tour Agency!

“A Wonderful Evening”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We chose to do our Dhowboat Dinner Cruise on Dubai Creek through Al Mansoor which is operated through the Radisson Blu Hotel. This was a particularly nice dhowboat, as some of the operators have plastic chairs and tables, whereas this one had lovely upholstered seating and tables with tablecloths. Be sure to double check with your Dinner Cruise operator as certain ones serve no alcohol whatsoever.

It is a really peaceful, relaxing evening on the creek, with good food and an amazing spread. Most dhowboats have an upper and lower level. The lower level is enclosed so you don't get the feeling of being out on the water. We chose the upper level (smoking is allowed on the upper level), but be sure to take a jersey as it can get cold in the evenings, you will also need a jersey for the lower level as it is severely airconditioned. The meal is in the form of a buffet which is laid out on the lower level. We had very attentive waiters serving our drinks and clearing our tables upstairs.

Another one of those must-do's when visiting Dubai, I can highly recommend this operator.

“Beautiful views, horrible food”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

It was very beautiful cruising in the Dubai creek soaking in the views of the old and new city. But it was marred by the sub par food we were served on board. Food was tasteless, stale and not warm enough.

Avoid this thing in summer as you will be roasted if you sit on the top, even in evenings. Inside one of the AC was not working properly, so it wasn't that much better either.
