Picked up at the hotel within the suggested time limit and also brought back home. All very surprising. Sailed around with an original old boat at the same time as dozens of others and all lit up with a lot of light hoses. A very cool face in all. The food was simple but very tasty. Had a really nice evening. We enjoyed.

The pickup was supposed to 18:15. 24 hours before advised it would be 18:45. At 19:00 phoned contact number told it would be 19:10. Eventually arrived at 19:28 Dropped at the dock at the wrong boat! The cruise itself was excellent. When boat returned to the dock, the pickup transport was not there. We eventually had a taxi back to the hotel. In summary the dhow cruise was excellent, but transportation service disgraceful. Have sent two emails, no response, as yet!

What a brilliant cruise! We were collected on time and taken to the dhow, which was very luxurious. We were served soft drinks and looked after well. The food was fantastic and there was plenty of it. We were collected straight away after we disembarked the boat. It was a fantastic evening, great views and a lovely atmosphere. One of the best trip in Dubai.
