Be sure to book the premium version (5 days)!!! Lots of extras included!! There's (almost) everything to see in Dubai with the BigBus! If you then have a guide like Mrs. SHERLI, you get a lot of valuable information in German. She is so warm and caring, a real gem for BigBus and GetYourGuide. If she's not at the Dubai Mall BusStop, ask for Glenda! Equally friendly and helpful. Despite the high temperatures, you should definitely take a seat outside. The view is unrestricted and priceless. And the fabric roof and (your own!) sun hat/cap protect you from the sun. You can't enjoy everything in a single tour. So definitely book the 5-day premium tour. Also included is a dhow tour and a visit to a fantastic giant aquarium in the Atlantis Palm Resort.

Loved it. Some amazing animals throughout all 4 floors. We got some fantastic pictures. We got to hold snakes and cockroaches too. The rainforest rain segment was nice too. Very good for kids (even though we didn’t have any) but it was still amazing. The food there was nice as well.

Great way to see all the sights. We did the 5 day option but probably only needed 2 and ran out of time to do the desert sunset tour. Dhow cruise is good.

Best way to see Dubai…we had an 5 day pass & still didn’t see everything…so much to do !

Really enjoyed this seeing all the animals walking around and great for photos
