The Basics

While water taxis are often included as part of guided sightseeing tours and serve as a practical way to see the sights of Dubai Creek while getting from Point A to Point B, the waterway can also be enjoyed via a sunset dinner cruise aboard a traditional Arabian wooden sailboat known as a dhow. Many comprehensive tours of Dubai city include a cruise on Khor Dubai or a dhow dinner cruise (Bateaux Dubai is a popular one) with visits to the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al-Arab, the Dubai desert, the Dubai Marina, and the Old City area.

Old and Modern Dubai City tour with Dubai Frame Tickets
Was great half day trip, was picked up at hotel at 8.20 and dropped back at 1pm. First stop was the Atlantis, then to Al Arab and Souk Madinat Jumeirah, drive through the driveway of La Casa Hotel with its 18 golden horses. Then to the Blue Mosque, short boat ride in a Abras to the Golden Souk, then given an hour to wonder the Dubai Frame. Guide was good, very informative, knew where to take all the best pictures and looked after the group whilst walking through the Souks

Dubai: Old and Modern City Tour with Blue Mosque Visit
First of all, I want to thank our guide Adnan from the bottom of my heart! He is a very well mannered, polite person and a wonderful and very professional guide! This is not the first time I have been to Dubai, but this is the first time I have made such a tour. And I didn’t regret it. Thanks to our guide, I learned a lot about both the country itself and the city. And also about Islam, which is also interesting, especially if you are in a Muslim country. The organization of the excursion is excellent! The day before the excursion, Adnan contacted us, explained everything. On the day of the trip, he was very punctual. During the trip, he showed and told a lot. On the sights, he also told a lot and took incredibly beautiful photos. So if you need not only a professional guide but also an excellent photographer, be sure to ask Adnan to lead the tour.

Dhows and Abras on the Dubai Creek

Dhows are wooden boats with long, thin, hulls, typically used to carry heavy cargo for trading. Lateen-rigged sails on one or more masts help power the boats carrying fruit or fresh water. Abras are the traditional motor-powered water taxis used in Dubai.
