What To Expect

Get acquainted with cosmopolitan Dubai and its history on an easy and convenient City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off tour by an open-top bus.

Board your City Sightseeing double-decker at any of the designated stops along the eight routes around the city. Take a seat inside or on the open-air top deck and relax as you enjoy the 360-degree views of the passing Dubai landmarks. Choose from a 1-, 2-, or 3-day regular or premium pass and stay aboard for the entire loop of each route, or hop on and off at any of the stops that interest you. See the Itinerary for a full list of stops and route details.

Whatever you want to see and do, you’re free to create your own itinerary and explore at your own pace. As you travel, plug into the interesting onboard audio commentary, available in multiple languages, to learn about the passing sights. Buses run regularly, and extended operating hours let you tour Dubai after dark to see the bright lights.

Traveler Tips


Jumeirah Beach is the best place to get great photos of the Burj Al Arab Hotel.
Hop on Hop Off tours are the way to go because you see so much in very little time.
The bus in Dubai has multiple routes to choose from covering pretty much everything thing you would want to see in Dubai.

Relaxing sight seeing
Maree_D, Oct 2019
Enjoyed the relaxing bus rides to all parts of Dubai. We travelled at night and it was amazing. To be able to hop on and off when we like was fantatsic. Great value
Not a good value
Trish_D, Dec 2021
The bus was not a true hop on hop off. The buses do not run constantly and we would have been late back to the ship had the supervisor not assisted us. It was a 3 hour wait for the last bus when it should have been only an hour. Use the other hoho bus tour

Do not buy this! It is not worth it!
sara_g, Sep 2022
I do not recommend this “attraction” march-december. It is extremely hot inside the buses. The a/c doesn’t work on any of them. We suffered the 2 days we purchased it. Not only that, the wait at each stop is horrible, there is no kiosk or any shade. Do not buy it!
Great sightseeing ride
Joanne_C, Apr 2022
The ride was scenic and very nice. The promised water however did not arrive..a bit disappointed as it was very hot. Otherwise it was ok.
Best for First Time Tourist
ArunKumar_C, Jun 2019
It is better than any other Dubai tour Guide. Since our stay was for two days, we bought one day ticket. This covered all three routes of Dubai Tour plus one Night Tour of Dubai City. Next Day we were given one hour Cruise tour. Best service and guided speaker tour in 13 languages including HINDI.
Best Narrated Tour Ever
James_W, Feb 2020
This is the best narrative hop on /hop off bus tour we have ever ha. Lots of useful information about the culture besides the usual descriptions—Even photography tips! Booked the 3 day option— There was so much to see that we couldn’t do it all.
A great way to see Dubai
Rhoda_P, Apr 2022
This is a great way to get around Dubai and to get your bearings - awesome for photos and to get to the sights you want to see. Going from Dubai Mall we took all three routes over three days - blue, red and the night tour. The bus has air conditioning at the bottom and the top at the front or you can opt to sit in the open air at the top. Really worthwhile and loved every minute of this

Dubai is too big for a hop on hop off bus tour!
Jasonokeefe1976, Aug 2019
I recently visited Dubai staying at JBR. We purchased the hop on hop off bus tour however Dubai is too big for this to be useful. For a visit to Burj Khalifa from JBR you must catch 3 buses on 3 different lines taking hours and hours to arrive in which is only a short 20 minute taxi ride. My advice is to tour Dubai separately on individual tours as you downs too much time on buses to not really see much.

Bus trip explains everything but very long
Lauren_H, Apr 2019
Explanation required of how long the bus trips are it is in small writing in the t &cs, unfortunately we spent too much time on the bus and took a long time to get back
too late starting we live in marina area and finish at 4.30 pm had to get taxi back every day??
ROBERT_W, Jun 2022
not a good experience, plenty of water provided, but we stayed in marina area , a long way away from mall and missed busses etc ,had to get a taxi back to marina av cost per trip 75 dirham ,more time travelling than sight seeing ??
Wao trip.
Marco_M, Mar 2022
We took the trip the very next day after arriving. It was very informative and fresh day. It was very nice and relaxing time.

Lots to See
Edward_A, May 2019
I gave the rating as average because we were unable to do all the routes. We only did one route. The one that we did, was very good. Hop on Hop Off tours are the way to go because you see so much in very little time. I just wished we were able to do the other routes as well.
Good way to get a first impression of a city
Karin_M, Mar 2022
Always a nice way to view a city and get to the furthest points. The bus back from the Creek was very very late. On our seats the headphones didn't work.
Best way to see dubai
Janice M, Jul 2019
Busses air conditioned up as well as down which was essential in July. Friendly staff. As much free bottled water as you wanted. Allowed us to see a lot of Dubai which is very big and spread out.
Hop on hop off bus Dubai
John_M, Dec 2018
We visited Dubai for the first time and wanted to see the sights as we only had a limited time there. The service we received was great, all the staff and drivers were very helpful and courteous.
The Way to Get Around
Suzanne_P, May 2019
Always the best option to get around and see a city in a short time. The bus in Dubai has multiple routes to choose from covering pretty much everything thing you would want to see in Dubai.
