Dubai Unlimited Pass | What's Included?
The Unlimited Attraction Pass is Big Bus Dubai's most generous sightseeing package. Hand your printed voucher over to a member of staff at any stop and receive each offer as a separate ticket. This allows you start each one at a time which suits you. From the moment you receive your tickets you'll have 1 week to do everything on the pass.
48-Hr Big Bus Dubai Tour Pass (4 Routes: Red, Blue, Green & Pink):
It wouldn't be an unlimited attraction pass if you didn't have a means of travelling between them all. Hop aboard one of Big Bus Dubai's open-top buses and explore 4 different sightseeing routes at your own pace. The red 'City Route' takes in the modern downtown and traditional areas huddled around Dubai Creek. The green 'Beach Tour' connects Downtown Dubai with the sparkling Marina and includes a scenic drive along coastal Jumeirah. The Marina area itself is serviced by the blue route, while he outlying pink route lets you travel from WAFI Mall to the city's famous Flamingo Lagoon (see below).
- Other Bus Tour Inclusions: 12-language digital audio guide, complimentary bottled water.
Bus tickets are valid 48-hours from first use. During this time you can hop on and off the buses as many times as you like during operational hours. All 4 routes are accessible, so feel free to exchange between them as required. See the 2017 map download below for a full breakdown of stops, timings, tour durations and connection points:
