To give you a feel for Dubai and all it has to offer the Big Bus Tour is ideal. Its three routes take you to all the main areas and enables you to find your bearings so that you can work out where you want to spend more time and what attractions appeal. Together with the Metro, the buses transport you promptly and efficiently around Dubai. A great introduction and transport option.

Egypt comes to Dubai

Egypt comes to Dubai at the bus stop and changeover at Wafi. This is also the backdrop for a laser light show at night about the Pharoahs. The garden an surrounds are immaculate and the pyramid building sets it all off perfectly. Just one of the spots on this tour.
