We did a 5 day hop-on hop-off bus including dhow cruise and Atlantis Aquarium, it was fantastic. the Big Bus employees, the drivers, all so helpful and hospitable. This bus passes all the sights, we were able to make good use of it during our holiday in Dubai, they run on time. Also did a day in Abu Dhabi with them, that trip was great too!

The best way to explore the city. However, the audio city tour could be updated. Information is correct as of 2013. Stops should be signposted as they are very difficult to find. Otherwise all good and have a nice tour. The GetYourGuide digital voucher is really accepted at every stop.

In general, the trips were interesting and informative. We have already done such hop-on hop-off day tours in various cities in Europe and also in America and have never really been disappointed. The only drop of bitterness this time was that the meeting point specified on the online map was between 2 highways, inaccessible to us and not recognizable as such. I would like the routes offered to be marked on the online map in order to be able to find better orientation for a possible access to a line.
