One good and inexpensive way to see all Dubai has to offer in one day. Via the headphones they tell you many interesting facts about this astonishing city. One amenity of this company is that you can help yourself with bottles of water. Good for the sunny and hot days on the upper deck of the bus. Several stops however... More

This is a must if you wish to see the city of Dubai. It is excellent value, particularly if you do the two day ticket. It includes three boat rides, free museum entry and numerous places of interest as well as great city views. Each line is quite long so you need two days to see everything. The waterways and...

You get a complimentary drink and earphones. The service includes 24 or 48 access and allows you to jump on and off. Some agencies provide ticket combos which seem... More

We loved our experience on the Red Bus Tour. it's a great way to see the city. i don't always like doing a tour bus experience but Dubai is so hot that it is much more comfortable and it is so spread out along the coast and has such wide busy roads that walking is not an option really. So... More

We bought a two day pass for this experience. Whilst it was a good way to see everything in Dubai, the traffic is horrendous and therefore makes it a very slow way to get around. I think in hind side the train/tram would have been a better option, although may have been a little tricky to get to some of... More
