    The best experience. Had the opportunity to see several places and even went around again to places we missed. Had a blast!!! Will definitely do this again!!!!!

  • 17-Feb-2020

    A great way to see and get around Dubai. Mobile app works really well with lots of information. Only criticism is that there could be more signage as to where some of the bus stops are. Staff were very helpful.

  • 14-Feb-2020

    Overall a good experience. Not always on time, which was understandable because of traffic conditions. On one bus the speaker box (for the headset) was broken. We were able to see a lot of Dubai.

  • 10-Feb-2020

    Great way to get around and jump off when you feel the need tour guides very good, clean and 3 different routes to get to see as much as poosible great price and free trips also included depending on ticket type

  • 05-Feb-2020

    They all work very hard to give the best experience in such a big place really enjoyed it, best way to go.

  • 05-Feb-2020

    Even this Tour could - and should - , be improved !
    The bus stops (Big Bus hop on - hop off ), are not market CLEARLY, as they , in fact, are non-existent.
    People go from placr to place, ask around and, almost, nobody can give you the right direction /information .
    Surely, there is a way to make things better !

    Poorly organized bus...ticket machine didn't work before boarding...when we did get on the bus didn't leave for 30 minutes and it was full... during day people waiting at stop in a downpour and a bus leaves without taking anyone..45 minute waiting for bus at end of the day.. would take red bus after this

  • 07-Jan-2020

    The staff was friendly and the bus was clean. I didn't like that you had to take three different buses to cover the entire City however, for the cost it was great! I recommend.

  • 06-Jan-2020

    I only got to ride the red line being told not to get off as they were finishing and they dumped all passengers at stop 9 where I had to wait an hour to get a taxi to get me back to my hotel! I potty the couple who only got one stop and thrown off without a refund. Me well looks like on my return stay on the 22nd I get a ticket with the other company!

    After getting off our Cruise ship and depositing our luggage at the hotel, we walked to the Big Bus main terminal at the Emeriste Mall to turn in my Voucher for our all day tour! Three years ago we had a thorough tour of Abi Dhabi and Dubai touring all the main sights so this time , refreshing our memory on the Big Bus tour was ideal touring the Blue and Red loops with a nice Dhou ride to complete the day before freshening up at the hotel and heading out for our 2:30 AM flight!
