We loved this tour. As a couple who had never been to Dubai, this was like a cultural tasting; Luxury, Shopping, Food, Dune bashing, Riding camels… and all in a private car, with an incredibly friendly and knowledgable guide. I highly recommend this tour to anyone with a long layover in Dubai we’ll worth the money

Dhows and Abras on the Dubai Creek

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