The tour included three routes and the night tour. Unfortunately, due to time constraints (the ship left earlier than planned), we could only sail one route. The live guide (headphones) always had dropouts. Therefore not the full number of points. Basically, the tour is recommended if you have the time to drive all routes. Alternatively, a taxi can also be worthwhile if you only want to visit a few places. The prices are around 45 cents per kilometer and a basic fee of € 3.-. Basic knowledge of English is important!

It was a great experience. Live guide is only the on the red line, the blue and green have pre recorded audios... which was also very good. The cruise which was included is beautiful, do not miss it. The best way to see Dubai is the hop on hop off.

We used Big bus service in Dubai. If you have less time for exploring the city this service is my recommendation. Busses are clean, following the time table, they are providing all information, with the same ticket we saw red, green and blue line, you will have discounts and free boat tickets for Dubai creek. Fantastic experience
