    Wonderful tour may change something. If you have the five-day tour you have to make this one after the other that is not handy, we are because we went to Abu Daby for a day and lost a day that is not handy, but I did pay for five days.

    Great way to see the city. The live guides are sweet, helpful and good at informing. It was easy to find stopping places once a city map had been issued, but it would be great with better signage. The desert trip was nothing to shout about, but it's nice to have seen it. We bought the Deluxe tour, which we would definitely recommend to others.

    I think this big bus HOHO experience in Dubai is simply tooo good. It had three routes, covered everything. I did the flamingo tour (it is beautiful!!), the Sharjah tour, desert sunset tour (the desert was not very good but the setting was nice), night tour, palm island drive (must do), lost world aquarium. It’s an extremely good package, very well managed, good value for money, and gives an awesome orientation of Dubai. Highly recommended!! Thanks Big Bus Dubai
