What To Expect

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.

To give you a feel for Dubai and all it has to offer the Big Bus Tour is ideal. Its three routes take you to all the main areas and enables you to find your bearings so that you can work out where you want to spend more time and what attractions appeal. Together with the Metro, the buses transport you promptly and efficiently around Dubai. A great introduction and transport option.

, Oct 2018

I was so glad that we booked this tour! It gave us a great overview of the city and the tour guides were all wonderful. This is a must-do for any vacation and especially on the first day in a city.

, Oct 2018

If you on,y have one or two days It is hard to do all on the red,green and blue lines. The narrator n the heard set was helpful Easy to change lines as well

, Sep 2018

Great resource to get around town. Covers the city as well as the beach and marina. Definitely recommend 48 hour pass. One day is not enough for the ground covered especially if making stops.

, Sep 2018

The Big Bus Hop-on Hop-off tour (5days pass) was worth every dollar. In addition, it came with a few added bonuses.

, Jul 2018

great tour

, Jun 2018

Absolutely a great way to see Dubai. The city is so large that you need an experienced tour like this to be able to see it off. Plus, the hopping on and off option allows you to explore with transportation included.

, May 2018

Good way to see Dubai in the short time we had. Very little commentary on the audio.
