(Re) Discover Dubai at your own pace with City Sightseeing Dubai. “Hop on – hop off” it’s the simplest concept: 1 ticket valid for 24 hours or more, over 40 bus stops spread on 4 routes citywide and you decide when to ride, where to get off, what to visit. Our ticket also includes loads of free stuff: 7 museums, 3 boat rides, 3 walking tours, coffee, water and other discounts at various merchants.

From the open top of a double decker bus, there are no better views, complimented by commentary in 13 languages. From 9 am to 10 pm, 365 days a year.

The best way to get to know Dubai. Three different routes that takes you around all the top tourist sites and stops at everything. A great way to see the city, its probably best to take two days to do all the routes if you are going to stop off at any of the stops to site see! Great information... More

So in theory, these tours are a great way to see a city. We chose City Sightseeing because of the Emirates discount, however we should have gone with the Big Bus as they seemed to have so many more buses. Two or more Big Buses would go by whilst we were waiting for our next bus. The trouble with Dubai... More

We are frequent users of City Sighteening around the world, however in this occasion we are very disappointed . Due to Dubai weather and the lack of walking paths around the city the touristic bus is a good option to get a general view of the city . However the service was very poor. Most of the driving is though... More

There are two hop on hop off bus tours in Dubai, we chose this one because it had more routes. There was a stop outside our hotel and the bus arrived on time. The transfers to other routes were OK, you did not have to wait too long, and the commentary worked well - though there was not always a... More

Booked the hop on hop off bus as we have always used them when visiting new places and they are usually very good. We booked with them again instead of the rival company, as they offered a night trip and we thought it was something we might consider. Little did we realise we would have to use it to try... More
