Hopping on one of the open-top buses from City Sightseeing Dubai is one of the best ways to make the most of the city.  The buses stop at major landmarks including the Burj Khalifa, Sheikh Zayed Road, Burj Al Arab, Gold Souk and Dubai Creek as well as over 47 stops around the city, which connects you to every major attraction. This is a great one for those travelling to Dubai for a only short break and want to make sure they don’t miss anything!


Sunset Safari

No trip to Dubai is complete without experiencing an afternoon safari in the golden desert.  This is the perfect excuse to leave the skyscrapers behind and take an afternoon away from the buzz of the big city for a ride with the camels around Dubai’s largest sand dunes. You’ll be able to finish the day off with a BBQ and a stunning desert sunset view.
