Hello, the ticket was very worthwhile for us, everything was good and the times worked, but we can advise against the desert tour, we drove out of Dubai for about 45 minutes, then we were exposed to an oasis called Sahara, the driver just said back here in an hour. We then walked around aimlessly, you weren't allowed to take any photos outside, let alone walk there. You had to ask about the henna tattoo, there was no coffee and the camel riding was also a joke. You can save yourself the trip and book a real desert safari. Otherwise everything was perfect with the ticket.

Due to the high taxi or Uber prices, the BigBus is a great way to travel through the city and find out information about the individual stations. All hop on hop off offers on Get your Guide are on Big Bus as it is not always clear. With all the additional free entries, the 5-day ticket is worth it. There are also free admissions to museums, but you only find out about this when you ask the staff. The stations are poorly marked and due to the traffic, the times sometimes shift by more than one trip. The information is often 4-5 years out of date and the trips start a little late at 10 a.m. and end a little early at 5 p.m.

Both bus routes are well chosen! You can see everything that is important and get a good orientation. There are free headphones and you can hear information about the city, culture, country and people in 14 languages. Unfortunately, the information is from 2013 and should definitely be updated. But otherwise I can highly recommend this bus tour. In addition, employees from hop on/hop off bus tours are always available at the Dubai Mall and other larger bus stops to help with questions or problems.
