The two tours, red and blue, were interesting and well organised. The staff friendly and helpful. The bus stops on the route are very bad or not excellent at all. If you got off at one stop and want to get on at the next following one, you won't find it because there are no signs. Very negative. We had to take a cab and ask around.

City tour pela cidade de Dubai foi incrível, tens uma breve noção da história e como se ergueu. Passamos pelos pontos turísticos mais importantes da cidade, algo fabuloso e espectacular. Recomendo sem dúvida o Big Bus Tour Dubai, é limpo, tens uma boa visibilidade da vista, tens direito ao mapa (rota da tour) e auriculares disponível em diferentes idiomas.

This was an excellent choice for me as it afforded me the ability to see most of Dubai on a 2 hour loop. I purchased the 2-day ticket for about $65 (on sale) and was on and off the buses several times over the 48 hour period. Buses were clean, drivers very polite and helpful. Suggest sitting on top with the panoramic view window (I was inside the enclosed part of the bus since it was 110 degrees outside!!) Great photo opps. Would definitely recommend.
