What You Can Expect

Big Bus Dubai Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

See the top sights of Dubai, including the Burj Khalifa on a hop-on hop-off tour

Dubai is full of contrasts, having transformed from a fishing village into a cosmopolitan city in less than a century. From spectacular skyscrapers to traditional souks, there’s plenty for visitors to see and discover. So, climb aboard the open-top Big Bus sightseeing bus and get to know Dubai with ease.

Enjoy 360-degree views of the sights and hop on and hop off at any of 13 stops along the City and Beach tour and 12 along the Marina route. Plus, stay aboard and repeat your circuits any number of times during your chosen ticket time — either 1-, 2- or 5 days.

Included in your ticket is a range of enjoyable extras, including entry to Dubai Museum and the interesting Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House; together with a dhow (Arabian wooden boat) cruise along Dubai Creek.

With the City tour, explore the traditional city of Dubai around the Dubai Creek, and visit a wide variety of museums, souks, a fort, an old palace and historical districts. 

Head along the coast on the Beach tour to Jumeirah Beach and along the iconic Burj Al Arab, discover Downtown Dubai, Atlantis the Palm and marvel at the world’s tallest building.

Want to experience the thrilling views of Dubai Marina and its stunning waterfront by taking the Marina tour. Visit The Beach along JBR and explore modern Dubai.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

Great way to get around Dubai, see the sights and stay hydrated with complimentary water. Staff was polite and great at pointing out different sites. There is ecpven an app you can download showing where the stops are and when the busses arrive. Well organized. I recommend to the 2 day pass, as the city has the JLT and Marina area wonderful to walk around and old town with markets . But keep in mind the 2 Day pass must be used consecutively. My only suggestion to the tour company is to allow the guest to choose which 2 days they want to use the voucher. Otherwise an excellent way to see and get around Dubai - Jeff, Tampa Florida USA

Good way to see Dubai. One day not enough though. So much to see and do. Good commentary. Worthwhile experience. Better than using taxis.Regular bus pick ups. Tickets for extra days gave extra opportunities. Would do again.

Best way in my opinion to explore any city for the first time. The Big Bus app makes tracking your bus live a little easier although it is in beta version so it is slightly inaccurate. The routes are good but expect traffic jams at certain peak times evening, weekends, etc.

2 day is necesery. You can't see everything in 1 day.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

Big Bus Dubai is an excellent way to see the major sites that Dubai has to offer. The materials provided were easy to follow and the hop on, hop off routine allowed us to pace our trip and allow us to spend more time at places that interested us the most. I would receoomen taking the deluxe package over two days as it includes entry to some of the major attraction. I would have no hesitation in using Big Bus again and have in fact already recommended it to friends who are visiting Dubai next month.

We had a great tour in Dubai. The best way to explore the whole city of Dubai.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

This was probably the best way to see most of Dubai's highlights. We chose the 48hr. option which gave us plenty of time to get on and off at the various places of interest. I didn't realise how big Dubai is, so using the bus is perfect.

A great 2 day trip. My only complaint was that there was no WiFi on the bus. If it not possible, then it should not be offered. I would recommend this trip to everyone.
