Dubai Open Top Magical Night Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Join us on this magical journey through a city of illuminated landmarks on this panoramic night tour under the stars. Sit back and relax on the open-top deck whilst taking in the stunning views of Dubai by night, a city that will capture your heart. Our recorded audio commentary in 12 languages will tell you all about Dubai and its traditions. Gaze at world-renowned landmarks such as Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, Palm Island, Souk Madinat, Dubai Marina and future projects during the tour.
  • View Dubai’s floodlit sights in one evening by double-decker bus
  • Sightsee and get your bearings out of the daytime heat
  • See the Burj Khalifa and more in their illuminations with guided commentary
  • Great for time-pressed visitors: Evening tour lets you pack more into a day
What to Expect
Hop on the double-decker bus at any of three central Dubai departure points, take a seat on the open upper deck or lower air-conditioned deck, and have your camera ready as you set off on your tour. Then, just sit back and drink in the passing scenery. Along the way, learn about Dubai’s history and architecture, and gain insight on the landmarks from the recorded commentary. Admire the glittering skyscrapers along the multi-lane Sheikh Zayed Road and continue to Jumeirah for stellar views of the Burj Al Arab, with its sail shape beautifully illuminated in the darkness. Drive to the palm-tree-shaped Palm Jumeirah to see its villas and hotels ablaze with lights, and gaze at the sparkling towers and yachts of Dubai Marina before traveling to Downtown Dubai. Here, marvel at the Burj Khalifa—the world’s highest tower—in all its evening finery before your tour concludes at Wafi City Mall.

Thoroughly enjoyed the open bus tour of Dubai. Very interesting to see the sights of Dubai and surrounding areas. We have been there plenty of times but have never done the open top bus tour. Definitely recommend it.
