City tour pela cidade de Dubai foi incrível, tens uma breve noção da história e como se ergueu. Passamos pelos pontos turísticos mais importantes da cidade, algo fabuloso e espectacular. Recomendo sem dúvida o Big Bus Tour Dubai, é limpo, tens uma boa visibilidade da vista, tens direito ao mapa (rota da tour) e auriculares disponível em diferentes idiomas.

This was an excellent choice for me as it afforded me the ability to see most of Dubai on a 2 hour loop. I purchased the 2-day ticket for about $65 (on sale) and was on and off the buses several times over the 48 hour period. Buses were clean, drivers very polite and helpful. Suggest sitting on top with the panoramic view window (I was inside the enclosed part of the bus since it was 110 degrees outside!!) Great photo opps. Would definitely recommend.

The drive is worthwhile on the whole if you want to get an overview of the city and history. Unfortunately, we were not given the dhow ride or the night ride. Due to the Corona, many other sights that would have been included, e.g. a visit to museums or the trip to AbuDhabi, were also canceled. If you have planned the deductions, the trip is still worth it.
