“Ahh, Not Big Deal!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

If you have been to Chicago then you must tried Chicago Architecture tour. And I thought this Dubai Marina and a bit of the open see tour in a wooden boat is similar to that but the reality is not even close. There is no guide or audio guide that add some humor or few information or what not to miss or you should see that...not even this is the perfect spot to take a photo. Finally I went in day light maybe at night it is different.

“Shorter than before, and please turn of the radio!”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Always go with friends visiting us in Dubai, as it is a super trip for a very good price. Now trip has been made shorter though, for some reason?
And please, NO music, lets listen to the sound of the water and the Marina in stead of a radio with advertisements!

Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

For 60 AED really a very good experience! Drinks as much as you want, blankets (its really getting cold at the sea) and an amazing view!

“awful”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Set off to then be brought back in to allow around 30/40 people to get on. Eventually ( 20 mins late) got going. Extremely over crowded even to the point of it being tipped to one side. We didn't even get the full amount of time we came back early. Did complain at the time but the woman at the desk seemed to not have a clue we turned back for so many people. Awful trip

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

For 60 AED this is fantastic value. We had a really good cruise for an hour which took us out into the Ocean and then around the Marina. Large bean bags and blankets make the trip really comfortable. The starting area was a bit difficult to find - its in the marina opposite the twisty skyscraper. The best trip we had all week
