What people are saying about Dubai Mall

Definitely recommend the hop on hop off tour, there is so many things to see in Dubai. I wished that I had done the tour first up. Would recommend getting a 2 or 3 day pass so you can stop off and enjoy each area. If you are stuck for time, then definitely do 1 full day!

Nice experience. Went there in the evening, it was not crowded at all. Impressive glass tunnel and many species. Nice guide in the penguin cove. It's worth it.

everything went smoothly, drivers are helpfull, some busies have covered part with glass and that is ideal for children otherwise take something to cover ears

Great way to see different parts and landmarks of Dubai. Busses were always on time and frequent. Recommended for anyone visiting.

Awesome experience and the easiest and cheapest way to move around town
