Good to go arround the city and to see all the main attractions, but there is no many things to say besides those few main attractions, unlike some other cities with the rich history. The time schedule is ok more or less, but at one station we have to wait for the bus for about 1 hour because one bus has never come, so we had to wait fir the next one. However, good experience, but too expensive for what you get (for the price for 2 persons you can get 10 - 15 taxi rides arround the city).

Definitely recommend the hop on hop off tour, there is so many things to see in Dubai. I wished that I had done the tour first up. Would recommend getting a 2 or 3 day pass so you can stop off and enjoy each area. If you are stuck for time, then definitely do 1 full day!

The bus experience was great in Dubai but it’s just that the buses sometimes came late to schedule as we waited in the sun and the audio narration needs updating. Very aware that Dubai is a fast growing city but I think some things was like it will happen in 2020 and I think that’s a bit dated for 2022.
