Cruise on Dubai Creek

We have just one full day in Dubai and would like to do the Big Bus Tour to get a look at Dubai (even if only a quick one) and also a tour on Dubai Creek. What is the best way to do this....do not particularly want a dinner cruise but and hour or two with some info re the creek. Is there anywhere we can book beforehand.

I don't think any of the boat based tours will give you any info on the creek. Look that info up for yourself then hire an abra for an hour at the Heritage Village just in front of Sheikh Saeed's House. Haggle with the boatman and do not pay more than AED for an hour. Best way to do it is go up the South Bank (Bur Dubai) for 30 mins that will get you as far at the Creek Golf & Yacht Club. Do a Uey and come back down the Deira Bank for 30 mins. Have your camera ready at the Abu Dhabi Bank building (the curved, gold one). You'll see the reflection of your boat on teh building and you can snap it.

Alternatively, if the amphibious bus tour is still on that will give you a Big Bus type tour and will take you floating on the Creek in one go. How about athat?
