The tour was very flexible and informative and covers almost all tourist spot in Dubai, touring in an open top bus was great experience especially in a skyscraper city like Dubai ( though weather was not that easy, but could escape to half covered part of the bus, which is Air-conditioned) Staff got very professional and service oriented approach.

This is definitely the easiest way to see Dubai. This can be done day or night. Bus stops at all the major attractions, with relevant information being communicated via head phones in a number of languages. Bottled water also offered free of charge (due to the heat in July). This is a must, especially for first time visitors.

If you are for your first time in Dubai and you do not have too much time to visit the places but you still want to get a look and feel this is the best way to do it. For 1 day trip you feel a little bit rushed as at 5pm is the last tour but if you take... More

Did not have much time on my hands for the full day tour, and to be honest it was too hot to wait around at the bus stops. So I tried the night tour which is a different tour completely, it visited all the main sights showing a Dubai at night. It is a tour where you stay on the... More

We joined the 24 hours valid hop-on hop-off tours. Actually I didn't understand why they are calling it 24 hours tours since first bus start at 09:00 a.m. and last bus at 17:00 p.m so practically it is 8 hours valid. Also most of their hop-on and hop off stops are public transportation stops so catching public buses instead of... More

We had a day to get around Dubai and in the 45degree heat it's a challenge! The big bus was comfortable with air conditioning and cold water on board, the stops we're well well planned and effective.

Great way to see the expanse of the city. Get off/on when you want and you get to see all the major 'touristy' sites around the city. The commentary is very informative, air conditioning very welcomed and plenty of water on board to refresh in the hot sun. Definitely something that all visitors should do.

Hop on and off bus tour. I had a good time on the bus tour in Abu Dhabi. I only had a 5 hour stop over in Abu Dhabi so I decided to take the big bus tour. I managed to see most of the interesting places in the city and was able to get off at the mosque. The... More

The first impression was there was pressure for an up sell. Pay a little more and get a second day. Why not a night tour? High on our list was the dhow cruise but we got there found it was a 45 min wait in the hot sun till the next cruise so gave it a miss. The fort and... More
