Unfortunately my trip was cancelled due to technical reasons with the plane, but 5 stars to Viator for refunding the cost of the trip with little fuss. Well done.
The trip is a must for anyone visiting Dubai. Captain Stephane was a great guide. During the first part of the trip we flew around all the landmarks of Dubai and the weather was fairly clear. One stop then on to Ferrari World. Every time we landed there were cold towels which were needed as it was 46 degrees C and cold bottled water. We were taken by taxi to Ferrari World which was very quiet, No queuing for any of the rides and the Rossa ride is a must. Despite it being Ramadan all eating places were open with screens around them so refreshments were no problem. Had around three hours in Ferrari World then mini bus back to our accommodation.
One thing to note, which is not mentioned on your booking email, is all passengers have to have photo ID njot just the lead passenger. No ID no fly so remember.
Every aspect of the tour was fantastic. It was everything we expected and more. A thrilling and exciting day...the best way to see Dubai and Abu Dhabi by far!
Add this to your 'Bucket List'....
What a fabulous tour to a fun park with a difference!
The flight on the seaplane to Ferrari World offered breathtaking views of Dubai. Our pilot flew past all the hotspots along the way, giving us numerous opportunities to collect a photo album full of memories. As we flew over Ferrari World we got to appreciate the facilities on offer. A short private taxi ride from the river to the park and we arrived at the entrance. Our first stop in the 'World's Largest Indoor Theme Park' was the 'World's Fastest Roller Coaster', being given special goggles to wear indicated that we'd be going fast - 240klms in under 5 seconds to be exact, it was a thrilling ride.....
Unfortunately that was the only really amazing ride for me, the rest of the park was fairly average but that wouldn't stop me from recommending a visit at least once in your life.
A beautiful fine day resulted in a smooth flight in a great little seaplane. Pilot Andy held it at between 450 and 500 feet for the best possible view. I paid the extra for the co-pilots seat. I don't know if it is worth the extra 100 as I didn't get to see the view that the rest of the passengers got from the back part of the plane but the view from up front was spectacular. It is truly amazing what they have done with that country, taming the desert and building the whole place in so little time. You just have to see it from the air.
Ferrari World is great for the young adventurers. There is a body size restriction on the roller-coasters so watch out if you are large. The offer a priority ticket upgrade for 200 and if the place is busy and you have limited time, the upgrade is worthwhile. It gets you straight to the head of the ques .that can be 20 minutes.
The drive back to Dubai was with an interesting driver and we spent the hour and a bit discussing how UAE works. It is great to drive on 4 lanes each way expanding to 6 or 7 lanes each way as you enter Dubai. There are speed cameras but I was told they only book drivers for over 140KMPH.
A wonderful flight with a short stop at Jebel Ali Palm for refueling. Amazing view! For 100 dirhams one can be a co-pilot. Very well spent money considering the view.
5 star rating from start to finish it was so good took off at Dubai creek then flew over burj khalifa then over the palm fab views then down the coast to Ferrari world landed at yas marina then driven to Ferrari world plenty to see and do there then driven back to Dubai you would not be dispointed with this trip like I said 5 star from start to finnish Michael Stephenson rick woodward
This was one of my favorite attractions on any trip in the world. Book through Viator, I recommend. For $200-300 per person, you get TWO seaplane flights, tickets to Ferrari world and a coach ride back. The staff is genuinely friendly and interesting. Everywhere you go water or drinks are offered. I have tried a lot of activities all over the world and this was one of my favorites. My two pilots, one Australian, one Canadian were great guys who loved to talk about their it's and their jobs. I cannot say enough good about this. You cannot entertain yourself this intensely for this money anywhere. These guys know their stuff!
Very well organised. Enjoyed every minute. The worlds fastest roller coaster at Ferrari world was brilliant and the views from the seaplane really gave you an idea of the scale of the building in Dubai.
This was fantastic. The flight was great, we were the only ones in the plane on the second part of the flight. It was informative. The time given at Ferrari world was just perfect and the drive back was a breeze.
We were treated like royalty from beginning to end, being treated to drinks on our arrival at the gholf club until we were dropped off at our cruise ship in Dubai port. The pilot was extremely friendly and made a special effort to give us the best views of Dubai before we left for Abu Dhabi and magnificent views of Ferrari World. A most enjoyable trip! I would just recommend that the stay at Ferrariworld is longer as the time there was too short. You need at least 6 hours to get the full advantage of the visit. Viator was very good with all their arrangements and our comparison indicates they were the best in terms of price!!
Excellent trip. Staff at Seawings was brilliant - very polite and welcoming. Got a welcome drink at Dubai Creek Golf Club and detailed briefing from the staff about the flight. We got escorted to the plane at Dubai Creek. There was a person to greet and welcome us at Abu Dhabi Yas Marina. Another person was there to drop us off to Ferrari World in a car and gave us information and instructions for the return trip. The excellent service made us feel like royalty! Flight itself was breathtaking. Gave a fantastic aerial view of Dubai. Return trip was also smooth - shared a van with another family taking the trip. Overall a fabulous experience. Ferrari World was a bit disappointing - very overpriced and not too many great rides. But the flight made it totally worth it! Would recommend the Seaplane to everyone visiting Dubai.
