    I always wanted to experience the wooden dhow boats and Dhow Cruise at Dubai Marina presented with the perfect opportunity, thanks to Thrillophilia, I and my friend got to experience that at an affordable price. The boat of Dhow Cruise Dubai marina was gorgeous and beautifully illuminated, the Dubai shoreline was a dreamy sight and we felt amazing gazing at those beautiful reflections in the water along with the yummy meals. The air-conditioned lower deck was a relief at times. The Tanura dance was a memorable sight. The team picked us up and dropped us timely at our hotel. Overall, highly recommended!

    If you want to make the most of your Dubai trip, a dinner at the dhow cruise in Dubai marina is a must. After a tiring day, we went to the dhow cruise for dinner and it was such a memorable experience. The cruise was decorated so beautifully and the buildings and night-time lights made the view even better. The menu had all the delicious appetizers, salads, main dishes and some special local dishes too. The luxury cruise dinner with a glass of wine made our day. Also we made the reservations through thrillophilia and highly recommend it to everyone who’s looking for an enjoyable experience.

    My family had profusely enjoyed the breathtaking views of Dubai shoreline along with an Arabic style dining in Dhow Cruise at Dubai Marina just a few days ago. We had booked the tickets of Dhow Cruise Dubai Marina through Thrillophilia and the process was smooth as well as cost-effective. The tour includes International and Asian Buffet Dinner along with music and Tanura dance. If you want all of these at a discounted ticket, Thrillophilia is highly recommended for you.

    We were offered a great deck table (the waiting time was 25 minutes), seating arrangement was also great. There was also a vegetarian buffet dinner option. Pickup and drop facilities were great but there was not much for sightseeing. So it is a great experience if you just want to have a luxury dinner with great surroundings and views. All thanks to thrillophilia.

    The Dhow cruise at Dubai Marina was a luxurious experience. We had dinner amidst the beautiful views of the Dubai Shoreline accompanied by music and tanura dance. The Dhow Cruise Dubai Marina package was low-priced. We went on a couple dinner and the tour operators Manu and Sachin were extremely helpful. The benefit of touring with Thrillophilia was amazing and all thanks to the team that we could avoid long ticket queues.

    If you are visiting Dubai, don’t miss out the traditional style dhow cruise marina experience. We booked our package through thrillophilia and it is possibly the cheapest dhow cruise in Dubai marina. Our guide for the trip prakash, picked us on time and was very friendly throughout the journey. He also suggested some shopping destinations where we shopped at a good bargain. On the cruise, we had a great time. The atmosphere and surroundings were very calm and it was a peaceful and fun family dinner experience though the food was not that great. Overall, we had a great experience, thank you!
