Overview
Dubai’s nighttime views are something special but covering all of its floodlit sights in one trip is difficult without a car. This evening tour lets you see the illuminated highlights with ease in one go, with live onboard commentary for background information. Plus, you can enjoy the open-air deck without the hot daytime sun and take the tour after a busy day—ideal if you're short on time.

Highlights
  • 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.

There wasn't much that you wouldn't see by walking around town, except ticking off palm island, which is much more impressive from the air.

This tour is highly recommended if you want to see how Dubai looks like at night. This tour will take you through the entire GREEN, BLUE and Half of RED route in a 3 hour safari. This is not a hop-on hop-off tour. This starts only at the "Dubai Mall" stop at 7:45 pm and not at

November 2019: On a warmish, yet windy night in Dubai we decided to see the city by open air bus. Day time was too hot for us hence the night tour attraction. The bus wasn't the newest and had internal and external small seating. We sat at the top. The staff were really friendly

After tripping around during the day on the hopon hopoff bus, it's fun to do the night tour, which is included in your voucher price, because all the light ups are really quite amazing! It did take quite a long time as we went all the way out to the Palm. I must say, as I'd

Use this as part of the go card & we hopped on at the Dubai Mall to start with & took the green route towards emirates mall. Down stairs is air-conned although still a bit hot and upstairs is open top but too hot to be in which is a shame they don’t find a way to make it cooler.
