  • Rating: 5 “Convenient and pontuality”

    Reviewed by Euripedes from São Paulo, Brazil on June 19th, 2014 The itinerary is perfect, the bus was new and clean and the person who work in this company is helpfull.


  • Rating: 4 “great overview of city sights.”

    Reviewed by Michelle from Goondiwindi, Australia on May 22nd, 2014 We only had one full day in Dubai so I'd pre booked tickets on the bus. It was a great way to see lots of different sights. I didn't realise Dubai was so huge! We also had tickets to the burj Khalifa so didn't quite finish the red route. You could easily do both if you don't get off too often. Commentary was a bit commercial but on the whole, I'd recommend the experience highly.


  • Rating: 4 “Great experience”

    Reviewed by Kirti from Lusaka, Zimbabwe on May 22nd, 2014 Great experience & courteous staff. Just disappointed with the arrangement of not being able to get to Dubai Mall where I started from in the morning !!!!


  • Rating: 4 “Always go for the big bus!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from London, United Kingdom on May 9th, 2014 It's now pretty much my rite of passage to do the big bus tour when visiting a place for the first time. It's a brilliant way to get up to speed on a place and also my secret way to get around town avoiding unnecessary cab fares :-). The Dubai experience was good particularly the Dhow cruise, only down side was I did struggle sometimes to locate the pick up/stop points but I think that's more down to the way the city is laid out and it's signposting.
    PS: If you're ever in Hong Kong, make sure you do the Big Bua tour there. It still ranks as my best tour ever!!


  • Rating: 5 “Excellent and efficient”

    Reviewed by Eileen from Warrington, United Kingdom on April 26th, 2014 We had a slight problem during our trip- one person got off the other didn't and only one had the ticket! The staff were most helpful sorting out the problem for two ' old' ladies. Trip itself was amazing


  • Rating: 5 “Perfect!”

    Reviewed by Antonia from Sofia, Bulgaria on March 25th, 2014 Everything was perfect!


  • Rating: 5 “Excellent best way to see Dubai”

    Reviewed by Steve from Hull, United Kingdom on March 7th, 2014 Fabulous way to see Dubai,well worth the money.


  • Rating: 4 “well organized and friendly employees”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Untersiebenbrunn, Austria on January 1st, 2014 Very well organized and most bus stations have contact persons in case of questions. An additional night tour was also offered to see Dubai in a colorfull lighted image.


  • Rating: 5 “Nice tour”

    Reviewed by Gustavo from Buenos Aires, Argentina on December 13th, 2013 Well organized, every 20 minutes new bus so you have time to drop off, visit the place and drop on without loosing time.
    Their get entrance for different stops, like museum.


  • Rating: 5 “Great service with professional staff”

    Reviewed by Peter from Palmerston North, New Zealand on October 3rd, 2013 48 hours in Dubai and we managed to see all we wanted to thanks to the great staff and their knowledge.
    Recommend that you hop on and off as soon as you can in order to fit everything in.
    Tempted to go around once on the bus and then start hopping, but would not have covered it all.


  • Rating: 5 “Dubai Big Red Bus Hop-on-Hop-Off”

    Reviewed by Emily from ORLANDO, United States on September 20th, 2013 I have used the Hop-on-Hop-Off services thru Get-Your-Guide booking from the United States and must say, I have been extremely satisfied with their services and hospitality. In booking all of my tour activities thru Get Your Guide, I feel quite confidence that if any mishaps should occur at my destinations, I am secured that Get Your Guide in the US will take care of it. However, my entire experiences in Dubai, Paris, Rome etc. I felt very welcomed as the Tour operators expected me and my needs very accommodative and made me feel at home. In going on vacations abroad and at home in the US, I am advising anyone I meet to book their entire tours thru Get Your Guide which are very much cheaper and guaranteed. The Dubai Hop on Hop Off ticket gave much value for the money in that it includes ear-phones, water, Museum ticket, Dshow Creek (boat) tour and stops to get off at most attraction areas.
    I highly recommend Get Your Guide Services who has provided the best guaranteed services.

  • Rating: 3 “Convenient”

    Reviewed by Damien from Mount Gambier, Australia on June 6th, 2013 Great way to see Dubai!


  • Rating: 4 “A great way to see Dubai in air conditioned comfort.”

    Reviewed by Sherrel from Jarrahdale, Australia on June 5th, 2013 Well worth doing as we were able to see all the major sights in an air conditioned bus. Really loved the free cold water on every bus, as much as you could drink which was great. The ticket sellers advice as to where to get off was spot on.


  • Rating: 4 “A great way to see the city of Dubai”

    Reviewed by Milan from Auckland, New Zealand on May 23rd, 2013 Tour was very good. We did the 24-48hr tour and used the buse's both days. Great mode of transport between the shopping centres. Would recommend for any traveller.


  • Rating: 5 “perfectly organized. good route.”

    Reviewed by Viktor from Wien, Austria on May 12th, 2013 Everything came together nicely.


  • Rating: 3 “Arrived at pick-up point to a very sales aggresive lady. Very pushy!!!”

    Reviewed by Jacqueline from Lincoln, United Kingdom on March 12th, 2013 Not well organised people pushing in and asking questions. Lady said she did not reconize Expedier. Once on the right bus the tour was good.

    Reviewed by Scott A from Indooroopilly, Australia on January 13th, 2013 good


  • Rating: 5 “Very good tour to have an overall impression of Dubai!”

    Reviewed by Dieter from Korneuburg, Austria on January 3rd, 2013 Both tours (red and blue line) can be highly recommended!


  • Rating: 3 “Good overview of Dubai”

    Reviewed by Alexander from Vienna, Austria on December 3rd, 2012 This tour offers a good overview of Dubai and saves much time. However, one day is to less to get off at some stations. There are also additional services included such as a Dhow Cruise, Waterbus or entrence in musems. At the next day, I went to some sights by the metro again, for which the time was not enough. The quality/price ratio of this tour is medium.


  • Rating: 4 “amazing how you can see every landmark in just one trip!”

    Reviewed by David from Cardiff, United Kingdom on November 8th, 2012 Can get very busy and sometimes the buses get very full and you have to stand,also the buses area bit irregular with their timings and not very clear where the bus stops are located,you have to guess ,but overall very useful trip!


  • Rating: 5 “Great to get an overview of Dubai!”

    Reviewed by Markus from Reutlingen, Germany on October 2nd, 2012 We took both routes on a single day!


  • Rating: 4 “Worth the money!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Wachtendonk, Germany on October 1st, 2012 This is a great tour for seeing everything, above all since you can get on and off wherever you want. The best!


  • Rating: 5 “The booking was practical and uncomplicated.”

    Reviewed by Inge from Dortmund, Germany on September 14th, 2012 We got the tickets after we handed in our printouts on location- we didn't have any problems whatsoever! Thanks :) !


  • Rating: 5 “Excellent city tours.”

    Reviewed by Birgit from Teterow, Germany on September 11th, 2012 Very informative, and you discover a lot of sights. Recommendation: there should be tours available in both directions instead of just the one.


  • Rating: 5 “We really enjoyed it!”

    Reviewed by Marion from Stammham, Germany on August 12th, 2012 We used our 2nd day in Dubai for the red and blue route with the big bus. Because of the hot temperatures, both routes on one day were easy to manage. We got out at the Dubai museum, Wafi, Burjuman, at the Atlantis and at the Mall of Emirates (Dubai Ski). The information we got was enough and easy to understand. Because we'd booked a tour of the Buri Khalifa with Hotel pickup with GETYOURGUIDE and we'd been to the Dubai Mall, the biggest aquarium in the world and the water fountains, we could really enjoy our day on the two city routes.


  • Rating: 5 “Recommended!!! You get a great impression…”

    Reviewed by Jennifer from Hopsten, Germany on August 7th, 2012 We pre-booked 6 tickets online… no problem redeeming them on-site!!! Well organised. The tour is great for "first-timers" in Dubai. We can recommend the 48 hour ticket, as you can barely do the whole tour in one day (24hrs). Great service, as you get drinks on the bus. The explanations of the attractions are great and in many languages. Also you can eat and drink on the bus durin Ramadan!!!
    We also recommend the "Night tour in the big bus"... awesome!!! Gladly again... thanks for a wonderful time in Dubai...


  • Rating: 5 “Half a day in Dubai with the Hop-on Hop-off tour is great”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Disentis, Switzerland on July 20th, 2012 It's cool to spend half a day in Dubai with the Hop-on Hop-off tour
