Everything worked out great, air-conditioned, enough water available, many interesting stops. The times of the tour could be a bit longer (4pm the last loop) and the night tour (5pm) a bit later as a night tour in the dark makes even more sense :) Staff and drivers all friendly and helpful.

Overall the tickets are good value for money, with lots to see in Dubai and some places a fair distance apart. I recommend downloading the App before hand to check the bus times etc. We waited at a stop on the first day, not knowing for sure if it was a stop as there was no signage or anything. We ended up getting a taxi to the main stop in the end, but used the same stop the day after as we understood the timings more! There is an option to sit outside and in an air conditioned section on the top deck. The earphones were good for information too. Would definitely recommend for first time visitors to Dubai :)

Doesn't apply on a daily basis now, but actually on an hourly basis. In 48 hours you can drive a whole day and a morning in an afternoon. We would book again and again. With a day ticket for 5 euros you also travel back and forth by metro, bus and water taxi, but then the explanations are missing.
