We bought the 24 hour ticket last week and enjoyed the trip around the city. There are three routes which take about 90 minutes to over two hours each to complete, so make sure you allow plenty of time for the trip. You also get a one hour dhow trip around the creek and an hour boat trip around the marina (unfortunately we run out of time to do the latter), and a short waterbus trip at the marina. You also get some add-ons which you can do within 14 days which we didn't have time to do. Make sure you collect your voucher book from the guides at the main stops which includes some good discounts at local cafes, etc.
Thank you Prakash driver at BIG BUS Dubai who allowed us to find back a phone left in the bus. He was prompt taking care of us.
My friend and I bought a 48 hour ticket for the Big Bus Tour and it was definitely worth it! There is so much to see and do around the tour, that it makes far more sense to buy the 2 day ticket.
There are plenty of freebies with the booklet they give you for restaurants, plus you get entry into Dubai Museum and a Dhow cruise plus several other offers.
We really enjoyed the tour, and traffic on Palm really isn't the bus company's fault. There are major roadworks taking place at the moment which can cause delays during peak times as there is only one way on and off the Palm.
The information given is helpful and informative, although at times can be repetitive.
We really enjoyed the tour and its a great way to see around Dubai and find out a lot of its history and lifestyle.
