Buses were prompt and staff were very helpful....Richard Palk, United States, 07/Apr/2017
We spent 2 days on the Big Bus! Couple hop on and off at any stop. The headphones worked well and the commentary was excellent. The second route which started at the Grand Mosque...David Broadbent, United Kingdom, 27/Feb/2016
Very well organised - buses leave on time. Would be better if they ran more frequently especially from Ferrari World. Also some of the headphone systems were not working....Jane Hillman, United Kingdom, 02/Nov/2015
Cheaper then others. Easy and quick.
Ottima scelta. Buon tour che copre tutte le attrazioni della città e dell' isola di Tasse.
