Dubai City Sightseeing Hop-On Hop-Off Double Decker Bus Tour

The Dubai City Sightseeing Hop-On Hop-Off Tour is a great way to explore the amazing city of Dubai. Travelling in a state-of-the-art open-top bus, the hop-on-hop-off system gives you the freedom to set your own itinerary and pace while the routes cover all the main sights and sounds from towering skyscrapers and elegant malls, to spectacular mosques and inviting beaches.

Explore Dubai at your own pace on this comprehensive hop-on/hop-off tour of the City. The first stop on the Dubai City Sightseeing itinerary is Dubai Mall. Covering an area of more than 50 football pitches, Dubai Mall is home to more than a thousand shops and the Dubai aquarium. The main attraction here, however, is the tower Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, which is more than twice the height of the Empire State Building and one of the wonders of the modern world.

Dubai isn’t all cutting-edge modernity though. The Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood was built before the oil boom of the 1970s when Dubai was much smaller. You can wander its old streets and visit its fascinating traditional buildings, many of which are home to cultural attractions such as museums and galleries.

Also, don’t miss the Gold & Spice Souks. They’re a treat for the senses, with the fragrant scents of spices from around the world and the stunning allure of gold, platinum and diamonds.

Madinat Jumeirah is one of the jewels in the city’s tourism crown. This enormous 5-star complex might resemble a traditional Arab town, but it’s actually one of the world’s leading and most luxurious holiday resorts.

Discover all of the above Dubai neighbourhoods on a Dubai City Sightseeing Hop-on/Hop-off Tour. Onboard, enjoy splendid views of the city's iconic landmarks as the informative commentary tells you all about the passing scenery. Then hop off your sightseeing bus for further exploration.
