Mega Yatch tour is a MUST DO when you are in Dubai. Everything about this tour is EXCITING and EXCELLENT. We went on this tour with family and we all had great time. The food was very good and had plenty of options to choose from. DJ on the Yatch was entertaining the audience. There were several shows on the deck at regular intervals. Overall I would recommend this for everyone. Dont miss it. You can thank me later.

The experience was honestly amazing. Mohammed Iqbal was very informative and an amazing tour guide. I don’t think the experience would have been what it was without him.

Every thing was perfect except for parking information, i spent 20 minutes to find a park for my vehicle, make sure you have a plan before heading to the gathering site
