Local transport vehicle not according to the type booked
, Feb 2020
The vehicle provided for round trip from/to the hotel was a minivan instead of the assured Sedan, which caused tremendous discomfort to the handicapped guest despite some out of way gestures and actions by the driver who tried his best to be accommodating. Also, the Pier drop off/pick up site was a long way from the actual Dhow boarding area. The food was average (nothing extra ordinary) but the on-board staff was nice to us.
Explore the waterways of Dubai Marina on this 2-hour, sightseeing dinner cruise.

Miracle Garden & Global Village was wonderful. Driver was on time for pick up & drop off at our hotel. No guide but we were ok coz we can chose where to go at our own pace. Afternoon start was good coz we went to Global Village at dusk and the lights were great at night. Felt safe during the tour.
This tour was a good way to spend time eating dinner while the boat is traveling along Yas Island. Service was great... the waiters were very attentive. Food was good... Indian/ Arabic food. Pick up & drop off was good... driver was on time and very nice. Boat was clean.
Combine the sights and lights of Yas Island—home to many of Abu Dhabi’s 21st-century leisure attractions—with dinner to save precious vacation time in the city on this “dhow” boat dinner cruise. Rather than organize your own transport around the island before or after dinner; enjoy panoramic views of the illuminated Yas Marina, Yas F1 Circuit, and Ferrari World as you eat and relax.
Musandam Khasab Day Trip and Dhow Cruise from Dubai
So Glad We Booked This Trip!
, Jan 2020
So glad we booked this trip! Viator was very easy to work with/through. The drive is long, but we appreciated our driver picking us up at our hotel, and navigating Customs for all of us. The dhow cruise and crew were very good, and made for an enjoyable experience.
This was one of several Viator tours we took during our week in Dubai. We were staying in the Marina district and our driver picked us up right in front of our apartment building. It was a 2.5h trip to the port where the boat departed. Our drivers (Hamad) command of English wasn't great, but we were able to communicate effectively. Hamad pointed out sites of interest and relayed pertinent info about the areas we were driving through. He provided bathroom breaks and some photo ops on the way. Traveling to Oman required a passport check at the border, which was relatively painless and well handled by Hamad. The scenery changes as you get closer to Khasab. We went from the Glitz of new Dubai, through the desert, into the mountains, and then to the water. We were part of a small group (12 people) on the Dhow. There was a bathroom on the boat. The boat trip lasted several hours, plying a sizable bay that almost connects to Gulf of Oman. We enjoyed the nice breeze off the water (thankfully, as it was pretty warm), the appearance of dolphins, and a couple stops to snorkel. A lunch of local cuisine was provided (quite delicious) and plenty of beverages available (but no alcohol). The boatmen were quite helpful and knowledgeable about the area. They even let one of our party drive the boat for a little bit. It was a good excursion, unlikely available anywhere else in the world obviously, and I would recommend it.
Leave bustling Dubai for the idyllic Musandam Peninsula on this full-day cruise trip. Enjoy the mountain and coastal views as you cross into Oman and head for Khasab on Musandam’s northern coast, known as the ‘Norway of Arabia.’ Then, relax and enjoy the scenery on an unforgettable ‘dhow’ sail boat cruise, drifting by a coastline of rocky peaks, fjord-like inlets and green-blue waters. Look for dolphins, drop anchor at barren Telegraph Island, stop to swim and snorkel, and marvel at the setting over an onboard buffet lunch and unlimited sodas.
Dhow was difficult to find, no signage on the dock. Only saw one staff member who seemed to do everything but drive the boat. Music was loud & inappropriate. Food was average & could have been
hotter. No commentary about the city or our journey, would have been good to know what we were seeing. Also no mention of life jackets/safety procedures.
First time in Abu Dhabi a traditional Dhow dinner cruise serving Arabic Live BBQ Dinner & while not join to see amazing Abu Dhabi Skyline while having a live BBQ. Plying the waters off our stunning Corniche, giving guests captivating views of Abu Dhabi city’s illuminated night skyline.
The cruises leave from the dhow berth at Abu Dhabi Mina Fish market at around 8 PM and can accommodate 60-70 passengers over it’s two decks. The trip, including the BBQ Live buffet. This 2 hours covers the Abu Dhabi City Skyline and cruise around to have a wonderful evening on a traditional boat.
Enjoy a fun day cruise and see the beauty of Dubai from the sea. Aside from seeing the beautiful skyscrapers and famous landmarks, get a chance to relax onboard and just be in the moment. Away from the buzz of the city life lies a tranquil day at sea onboard our fully-serviced luxury yachts.
An OK and evocative trip. A little bit shorter distance than expected, not very organized dinner (people walking around, especially in the bow around our table), simple entertainment and not enough of lettuce and hummus at the food table.
