I took this tour on Saturday and it was nice. Of course the distance between attractions is too long in some cases so the traffic jams etc. takes the fun out of it. But I must say the attendants at every stop do a great job in helping each passenger. They had complimentary cold water bottles which was a great... More

We took the two day pass and the night tour. We did one route each day. It is a good way to see the city if you do not have plenty of time and in a city were you can barely walk due to the heat. It gives you the basic information. Buses are very punctual. They provide cold water... More

I took the hop-on, hop-off bus tour which I’ve done in a few cities, and it’s usually a good way to see the city and learn some history…well this one .. we spent most of the time in traffic jams, the pathetic headphones didn’t stay in your ears, the commentary was like a promo ad for shopping malls: "This is...

The Big Bus tours were the best way to get to know Dubai, as well as some really interesting information on the history of the city. I was in Dubai for 2 days, so purchased a 48 hour ticket, which allowed me to get around to all of the places I wanted to go. The only thing to be aware... More

we recently did the Dubai Big Bus tour, we opted for the 48hour ticket ,as I think trying to cram everything in within 24 hours would be almost impossible. We enjoyed the included Dhow cruise, really amazing to see how those old Dhows on the creek are loaded up with so many goods to transport, and still manage to stay... More

Underwhelmed with our experience. Booked 3 tickets for the Night Tour only. Was fully aware that the seats were on a 'first come, first serve' basis but very little is done to make this easier. No line organization or system when we boarded at Dubai Mall, somehow people were already on board and there was a chaotic rush for seats.... More

The Big Bus in Dubai is a great way to see all the sights. However, unlike other similar tours I. Other cities, this one is not a convenient way to travel between them as the distances are too far between stops, and the buses stop on the half hour. The upstairs is covered, and half of it is enclosed and... More

Have used this service in California and spring this year in Rome. The Rome service was appalling but this was EVEN worse. 24 hour ticket that starts at 9 am and finishes at 5pm ? The Air Conditioning hardly worked, " hop on " " hop off " every 30 minutes ? Decided to take the recommended river cruise at... More
