Overview
Take a Dubai sightseeing tour with a difference on this fun-packed, 1-hour 30 minutes amphibious land and water adventure. Board an ‘amphibus,’ commonly known as a ‘duck,’ and drive around Bur Dubai to see the picturesque wind-towers and historical creekside quarter of Shindagha. Next, splash down into Dubai Creek as your bus miraculously turns into a boat. Relax as you cruise by the Spice Souk and Deira Twin Towers, and watch the passing ‘dhows’ (traditional Arabic boats) and other vessels as your guide shares fun facts about the landmarks and Dubai’s history.
What to Expect
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.

What a very unique trip it is

The tour was very fun, its my first time to go on amphibious tour, I couldn't imagine that a bus that runs in the land can also go in the water. Amazing it is. Everyone should try it. :)

if it was not for the guide ( Ismail) it would have been one BORING ride.

Having tried most of Dubai activities, we decided to give this a try and to something out of the ordinary. The trip was mediocre at best, if you have not been to Dubai before and want to see old Dubai, by all means give it...More
