Dubai: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour 24, 48 or 72 Hours
- Duration options: 1 - 3 days
- Optional audio guide
After booking the 4 hour tour to Dubai Flora & Fauna I was left a little disappointed as you only get 1 hour at the Miracle Garden and 45 minutes at the Dubai Butterfly Gardens the rest of the journey was spent travelling. You also need to be aware that when booking this tour you will be collected from your designated Hotel but are dropped back off at either Dubai Shopping Mall or the Mall of Emirates which cost us another 40 Dirham taxi ride back to our Hotel. You will not be dropped off back of at your Hotel.
The hop on hop off city bus tour was very economical if you want to visit all the major tourist hot spot. Don't use taxi because you can get around Dubai efficiently with city tour bus. I gave a 4*because the hours should be extended to about 9pm because there are so much to see, but bus stop running in most places between 5:30pm and 6pm.
An amazing experience, I took my mum and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Our taxi/tour guide was extremely pleasant, Farman. He kept a great conversation and kept us all entertained, very helpful! It actually encouraged me to book other activities, due to the amazing service.
This was a very easy way to tour Dubai. I recommend that you do your research in advance to ensure you stop at the best stops for you. Also, download tour bus app in advance -- This app allows you to track the bus and avoid spending too much time waiting for it.
The bus was a good choice but had a few problems trying to travel across the city on a time schedule we did not manage to do all that we wanted due to being late arriving at some of the venues.
