Dubai Tourist Bus

The open-top sightseeing bus in Dubai allows you to discover the city in an easy, comfortable, and fun way. There are three different routes and you will enjoy an audioguide with English language commentary.

Day tour

The Big Bus Tours company makes three different sightseeing routes, the "Beach Tour", "Marina Tour" and the "City Tour", covering almost all the essential sights and landmarks around the city. You can hop on and off at any of the stops whenever you want.

Some of the main stops on the route include:


The bus schedule is approximately from 9 am to 6 pm, although it varies depending on each stop.

Night tour

The night tour of the Dubai sightseeing bus allows you to enjoy the main sights of the city all lit up at night. During this tour, you won't be able to get on and off at each stop, but instead, take a 2.5-hour panoramic tour with live commentary by an English-speaking guide.

Is It Worthwhile?

The Dubai sightseeing bus ticket is quite expensive, so we only recommend it for those who are going to have time to take advantage of it during their trip.

If you're not going to have much time to go on the tours and get off at the various stops, you might consider the option of booking a tour with an English-speaking guide for a similar price:
