The concept is ideal for visitors with limited time in Dubai. We could not have seen as much in a day without your service.
easy and with peace of mind.
I paid slightly more because there were two big bus models advertised and because of the heat I decided the double decker with a roof and hence better air conditioning was the way to go rather than the open air top. However, when actually there they were the same bus, there was no difference, so I think the price variation was a bit of a rip off and definitely misleading. Whilst it may seem cheap, because of the operating hours if you do get off to view the included attractionsyou really don't see that much. In addition, if you change routes at the connecting points, because the bus travels in the one direction you may have do almost do a complete circuit, which is time consuming, to get to your desired destination. Taxis are relatively cheap and should be considered. I had a 48 hour ticket, but the sunset tour was not on offer when I was there. Also it was Ramadam for the month of June and definitely not the time to be there as all the restaurant and cafes during the day are closed.
We booked different sightseeing tours during our 7 days stay in Dubai, but 48 hours Big Bus ticket was the best guided way to get to know all about fascinating city with flexible options covering variety of interests. Good value for money, keeps you busy all the day, you choose program within 3 routes and 80 stops, preferential sites to explore, stop as you like, included are boat tours, walking tours, Atlantins the palm Aquarium, free bottled water, wifi, reward booklet with discount coupons and amazing Palm Island drive, Flamingo lagoon discovery, Sharjah tour and Desert sunset tour, which you can experience within 7 days upon validation. (Do not be discouraged at first if you experience difficulty to find the Big Bus stop....just ask, everybody helps).
