A great way to see Dubai
Rhoda_P
, Apr 2022
This is a great way to get around Dubai and to get your bearings - awesome for photos and to get to the sights you want to see. Going from Dubai Mall we took all three routes over three days - blue, red and the night tour. The bus has air conditioning at the bottom and the top at the front or you can opt to sit in the open air at the top. Really worthwhile and loved every minute of this

Always a nice way to view a city and get to the furthest points. The bus back from the Creek was very very late. On our seats the headphones didn't work.

Not a good value
Trish_D
, Dec 2021
The bus was not a true hop on hop off. The buses do not run constantly and we would have been late back to the ship had the supervisor not assisted us. It was a 3 hour wait for the last bus when it should have been only an hour. Use the other hoho bus tour

This is the best narrative hop on /hop off bus tour we have ever ha. Lots of useful information about the culture besides the usual descriptions—Even photography tips! Booked the 3 day option— There was so much to see that we couldn’t do it all.

Dubai is too big for a hop on hop off bus tour!
Jasonokeefe1976
, Aug 2019
I recently visited Dubai staying at JBR. We purchased the hop on hop off bus tour however Dubai is too big for this to be useful. For a visit to Burj Khalifa from JBR you must catch 3 buses on 3 different lines taking hours and hours to arrive in which is only a short 20 minute taxi ride. My advice is to tour Dubai separately on individual tours as you downs too much time on buses to not really see much.

Busses air conditioned up as well as down which was essential in July. Friendly staff. As much free bottled water as you wanted. Allowed us to see a lot of Dubai which is very big and spread out.

Best for First Time Tourist
ArunKumar_C
, Jun 2019
It is better than any other Dubai tour Guide. Since our stay was for two days, we bought one day ticket. This covered all three routes of Dubai Tour plus one Night Tour of Dubai City. Next Day we were given one hour Cruise tour. Best service and guided speaker tour in 13 languages including HINDI.

Lots to See
Edward_A
, May 2019
I gave the rating as average because we were unable to do all the routes. We only did one route. The one that we did, was very good. Hop on Hop Off tours are the way to go because you see so much in very little time. I just wished we were able to do the other routes as well.

Great way to see Dubai
Ann_B
, Dec 2018
Loved the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour - great way to see the city, easy to get around, buses are regular. Definitely recommend going to the Jumeirah Mosque - they are very welcoming and open to all questions, just remember to dress appropriately, covered arms, legs & heads for women (they do provide free clothing to be allowed inside). Jumeirah Beach is the best place to get great photos of the Burj Al Arab Hotel.
