Choose from the available departure times when you book. Then, meet your guide near Dubai Creek to set off on your 1-hour and 30 minutes sightseeing adventure on the amphibus — a bright yellow vehicle similar to those known as ‘ducks’ that doubles as a boat.
Take a seat and listen to your guide’s entertaining commentary as you explore some of Dubai’s top sights by land. Hear how Dubai rose from a fishing port to wealthy metropolis in just a few decades following the discovery of oil in the 1950s and 1960s.
Have your camera ready as you explore one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, Bur Dubai. Snap photos of the traditional wind-towered houses and pass Shindagha Heritage Village — a recreation of Dubai’s original fishing settlement — and the Shindagha Tower, one of the city’s two old defensive watchtowers.
After seeing the sights on land, get ready for splash down as your vehicle enters the waters of Dubai Creek. Then, with your bus now transformed into a boat, relax as you cruise past the Gold Souk, Spice Souk and other sights such as the Grand Mosque and Deira Twin Towers.
Soak up the sight of Al Maktoum Bridge that spans the creek, and enjoy stellar views of the dhows, wooden abra water taxis and other river vessels as they chug by your window.
After 30 minutes on the water, step back on dry land and bid goodbye to your guide, bringing your experience to an end.
