Full description

Experience the best sights of Dubai and see it illuminated at night on a 2.5-hour bus tour that takes you around the city while educating you on the history of what is considered by some to be the best place to live in the Middle East. Explore this remarkable, modern, and vibrant city from a whole new perspective. Ride around town in a double-decker bus as you pass by Dubai's most famous landmarks. Your guide will tell you all about Dubai and its traditions, existing landmarks, and future projects during the tour. Hop off the Big Bus at Wafi Mall and enjoy the spectacular Egyptian-themed light and sound show in the Pyramids courtyard. See the impressive Museum of the Future, Sheikh Zayed Road, part of the longest highway in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai Harbor, and Atlantis the Palm. Then admire the Burj Khalifa, the tallest manmade structure in the world; at 2,723 feet (830 meters), it is truly an amazing sight. From there, explore many more of the city's famous attractions, including the Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa, JLT, Dubai Harbour, Atlantis the Palm, and Souk Madinat Jumeirah

It was a very nice experience to see Dubai at night. The information about headphones was very good and varied. Only the half hour in the traffic jam on the Sheikh Zayed Road is certainly known in advance and was not avoided. Also, getting off the Big Bus at the Wafi Mall and enjoying the spectacular Egyptian light and sound show in the courtyard of the pyramids is incorrect. The bus didn't stop here. All in all it was very nice and we would go again.

The meeting point was a bit difficult to find because it was wrongly marked on the map. Were the first time in Dubai and therefore very confused. But then we found the stand by accident and were able to exchange our tickets. Were then a bit late and therefore had to walk to the bus independently without a guide. There were about 80 buses, all white, the good thing was that ours was the only double-decker bus in beige. Actually saw everything important on the tour. made a small picnic with donuts there in the meantime. The display from the tape was a bit shaky and rustled from time to time was a bit older. But for the price perfect for getting started on the first day in Dubai

So the beginning was very good. But when the sightseeing tour switched to the next route, there were unfortunately no more sights. We were just driving around, listening to the music in our ears and listening again to everything we saw at the beginning. Unfortunately. We would have expected a little more information.
