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 the stops on the routes. Plus, stay aboard and repeat your circuits any number of times during your chosen ticket time—either one, two, or five days.

Included in your ticket is a range of enjoyable extras, including entry to Dubai Museum, a dhow (Arabian wooden boat) cruise along Dubai Creek, and a panoramic night tour.

Nice tour but govenment closures darkened the experience.

It was a shame that most attractions were closed due to COVIT-19 controls. Good tour though of this City. Would have been nice if the tarrif was reduced to reflect the limited sops.
Dubai Big Bus
, Mar 2020
The hop on off bus tours were excellent, we did two of three and thoroughly enjoyed both. The buses were very comfortable and the commentary was very informative. Sadly the same cannot be said of the dhow cruise which was very poor, the commentary tape was broken so we had multiple repeats which was disappointing. We also went nowhere the Arabian Gulf as advertised.

The best experience. Had the opportunity to see several places and even went around again to places we missed. Had a blast!!! Will definitely do this again!!!!!
Great tours
, Feb 2020
A great way to see & get around Dubai. Mobile app works really well with lots of information. Only criticism is that there could be more signage as to where some of the bus stops are. Staff were very helpful.
Enjoyable experience
, Feb 2020
Overall a good experience. Not always on time, which was understandable because of traffic conditions. On one bus the speaker box (for the headset) was broken. We were able to see a lot of Dubai.
Touring the city

Good things can be better

Even this Tour could - and should - , be improved ! The bus stops (Big Bus hop on - hop off ), are not market CLEARLY, as they , in fact, are non-existent. People go from placr to place, ask around and, almost, nobody can give you the right direction /information . Surely, there is a way to make things better !

They all work very hard to give the best experience in such a big place really enjoyed it, best way to go.
a bit of a scam, you pay for thing you don't get!
, Jan 2020
I made the mistake of buying the five day ticket which includes various trips and outings. this is a waste of money as Big Bus cancels the trips and outing without any notice and you can not get your money back. I recommend that you only buy a one or two day ticket as these are great for getting around Dubai during the day. you need to by aware that Big Bus printed time table tells you that the service finishes at 19.10, but it doesn't it finishes at 18.00

Poorly organized bus...ticket machine didn't work before boarding...when we did get on the bus didn't leave for 30 minutes & it was full... during day people waiting at stop in a downpour & a bus leaves without taking anyone..45 minute waiting for bus at end of the day.. would take red bus after this
