The commentary is good & covers many aspects although needs to be updated as at one point we were told something is looking at being completed in 2021 We did the 3 routes Red, Blue & Evening. Commentary for evening is the same as blue tour. Also evening tour needs to start at 18.00 so the full effect of the darkness & the city lit up, can be experienced.Timings need reviewing.Waited 20 mins at JBR-why? The commentary facility needs to be checked on the buses as the last one we rode on -the evening tour -the commentary was not working all along the one side of the bus upstairs (the opposite side to the driver) -not really good enough when people have paid The Blue bus tour in the air con area had a few windows that were all misted with condensation which could not be cleared as appeared that the window unit seal was broken-this obviously hampered the view I think the price for one day of just over £50 for 3 tours is not unreasonable but certain things as mentioned need reviewing.

Definitely worth doing to see all the amazing architecture of Dubai : museum of the future, frame, Palm jumeirah, Atlantis , Burj Al Arab, etc. Don’t ask Google maps to tell you where the bus goes from outside Dubai Mall because it said the Grand Cafe next to Prada. If your coming from the metro, exit on the right where local buses stop and walk straight ahead to Dubai mall and follow the path to the right. City sightseeing and Big red bus leave from here.

Meet at the bus parking lot at the exit of the mall, go down the escalators. Illusory to get off the bus at the stops if you want to do both lines in one day. The 2 routes offered (old town and modern) leave from the same place (Change of bus for the red and blue line) departure every hour. This activity is the sightseeing tour, not to be confused with the big bus tour. To do to discover dubai at the beginning of your stay.
