One of the best ways to see Dubai is on a Big Bus Tour. This is an open-top tour, like the ones in London with a guide and live commentary. Many of the major tourist destinations are stops on the route, and the best part, you can hop off and on when and where you want. Big Bus Tours make a fantastic introduction for the Dubai traveler - they are safe, relaxing and make for a great adventure for young families.
The Big Bus Tour company of Dubai operates two routes. There is the Dubai city tour and the Dubai beach tour, and you can choose either the 24-hour or the 48-hour bus tour, which will allow you to hop on and off as many times as you want during that time frame. Leisurely shop along the way or get close-up views of the spectacular buildings. Soak up the sunshine on a desert coastal ride. Either tour is guaranteed to be a fun and relaxing way to see this marvelous Middle Eastern city. A day tour will give you entrance to the Dubai Museum or Shaikh Saeed Al Maktoum's House for free.
Night tour versus Day tour
Whether by day or night, Dubai is a sparkling gem. Soak up every bit of those marvelous sun rays as you see all of Dubai in its entire splendor on a Big Bus Tour. At night, Dubai turns into a magnificent city of gold. Some say that the night lights in Dubai are better than any other place in the world. You are sure to be dazzled! The night tour operates every evening and runs for 2 hours. With both tours, qualified guides share fascinating history and insights of the rise of this glorious city.
