If you want to see Dubai there really isn't much better of a way to do it. The Big Bus has 3 routes for the price of one that shows you everything in the city. You can hope on or off at any location you want and withing 15-20 minutes another bus is right there to pick you up.

We bought 48 hour tickets and managed to do 3 bus tours all different and informative. Good way of taking pictures and seeing Dubai. The stops provided the opportunity to explore the places which seemed of interest. The buses were on time and regular at all stops. Water, earphones and maps were available. I would definitely recommend this as we... More

Amazing value for money whether you buy the 24 hour or 48 hour tour. With each you get at least 4 free tours which are worth a try. The tour itself is great, the on board commentary is full of information, history and other trivia. The tours are serviced by a great team of drivers and tour managers. Very helpful.... More

Excellent commentary. We learned a lot. This is the truly the best way to get a big picture of Dubai with limited time. 24 or 48 hour tickets available. Save a little money and buy on line. There are so many good options ( desert tour, boat ride etc ) it was impossible to fit them all in. We will... More

I high recommend the big bus tour. There are so many things to see in Dubai and with the big bus you can tour everything at you own pace. I recommend the 48 hour tour because you have 48 hours to complete the tour. You also get free tickets to museums, aquariums and more. If you like shopping take the... More

Liked everything about it...it's more expensive than in some cities, but it includes many extras which are free.

I took a 2 day pass because I had the time and was glad I did. It enabled me to make the most of the dhow cruise, the water bus and the included museum admissions. I didn't manage many of the free walking tours, but the gold souk one was ok. You do need to plan carefully though to make... More

We have just returned from Dubai and found the Big Bus Tour let us have an informative look at all the attractions via good head phone commentary. We particularly enjoyed the Marina and the ride in the Dhow and the Gold souk visits. We ran out of time on the 24 hr tour because of our own poor time management... More
