Many experiences in 24 hours

Some of the hop-on hop-off buses are air-conditioned much too cold! Please bring something to wear! Otherwise I can absolutely recommend it. However, the cities of Abu Dabhi and Dubai cannot be covered in one day. At least two days are necessary if you want to see as much/everything as possible.

It's totally worth it!

It was totally worth it to get a good insight into Dubai. The trip to Abu Dhabi went smoothly and was definitely worth it. There was always chilled water on board. There was a deduction for the contradicting descriptions on the website and in the mail. But the Big Bus employees on site were able to answer all of our questions and were also very helpful.

To see a lot in a short time, definitely do.

Due to the high temperatures there, you cannot walk long in the sun. So get out where you want to be a little bit longer, and watch it from close by, then back on the moving bus, and cool off again due to the wind. Or sit deeper in the air conditioning.
