We enjoyed our day on the Big Bus. It was on time and we were able to switch from Blue to Red quite easily. The 24 hour one is OK if you want a quick whiz round but doesn't really allow time to stop for long in any one place. We were constantly worried that we would miss the next bus and then that would mess up the rest of our planned day. If you have the time the 48 hour tour would be the better bet. The commentary was informative and easy to hear and understand.
This was an excellent tour with so many add-ons, eg the dhow boat trip, the walking tours. We also did the night tour which was very good as well.
the hop on hop off bus was the way to see Dubai. The bus stopped at all the major sites to see. The best thing was that where you were dropped off was where they picked you up. We did a similar one in New York city and had problems finding out where to get picked up. We had a two (2) day pass for this and I would strongly suggest this if you want to see Dubai.
The tour was excellent. We saw everything and would recommend it to everyone. The staff were pleasant and very forthcoming with information. Many thanks.
Great for seeing Dubai - a lot more than we could have done on our own.
This is great value for money. We did a 2 day pass which worked really well as they have 2 routes (city district and beach district). Having a 2 day pass meant we were able to do one route per day. The additional entry to museum and dhow boat ride were a great bonus.
As a solo female traveller I found this the perfect tour! I basically used it to sightsee and get around to the various malls for shopping! You just have to keep in mind that it takes a good few hours to get around and traffic can be hectic so best done with no specific timetable in mind.
The only way to get around the sites in Dubai. Particularly in summer heat. The metro is very good, but the metro stops are not always near attractions.
This was a great way to see Dubai, especially as it was very hot and we wanted the comfort of air-conditioning as we travelled around. I thought the inclusions were informative and good value.
Excellent tour. You need two days to do everything. We only had one. The bus supplied water and when we got off at the end, we could get water from the office stand at the finish point. The tour takes in the city and back tour (which are separate buses lines) but you need one day for each. Do your research of the stops to see which ones suit you then you won;t waste time getting off at the wrong stop. The only complaint I have was we were going up on the top of the bus and the driver took off as I got to the top and I fell into the seat. Other that that I would recommend this tour as a must.
The Hop on Hop off Tour was great. I have booked the same tour in Hong Kong and Singapore however in Dubai you were always sure of the stop as there was always a little shopfront at each stop. In HK and Singapore there was nothing to identify where the stop was. In both HK and Singapore we discarded the tour and took taxis instead due to not being able to identify the hop on spot. So really enjoyed it in Dubai. Very informative. 2 days is a must if you want to see everything.
If you are pressed for time, this is by far the best way to see the whole city! Wonderful staff and the buses were great!
As always these hop-on tours are a perfect way to see an area. They are filled with excellent information. Plus using the bus for 48 hours gave us amble time to return for revisit favored spots.
well worth the money a must to do if it's your 1st trip to Dubai you get to see places you will not find on your own.
easy way to see the sights of Dubai best way aroud Dubai as in other places
The hop on and off tour was very good well worth it , we found it very informative, with.
The Hop On Hop Off bus is the way to go in Dubai. We had limited time before catching our cruise ship. We spent an afternoon doing the red tour and the next morning doing the blue route.We saw so much of Dubai in such a short time,took lots of photo,s and the commentary in various languages was exceptional.All in all, value for money for a great trip on both buses.
We took the two day tour and it was extremely well done. It enabled us to see the entire city and then go back for a second look. The pick up point was directly across the street from our hotel in front of the Dubai Museum. We used our ride across the Dubai Creek after dining at an Iranian Restaurant one night. Traveling with the locals was fun and quite exciting. The included trip on the Dubai creek was very nice and gave us another point of view of the commerce that moves in and out of Dubai. My only complaint was that the pick up points were not as well marked as they could have been. When I go to another city that I am unfamiliar with I will certainly contact Viator to see if they have tours.
