Dear Sirs, my experience with BigBus in Dubai was excellent mainly because of the Driver that helped us a lot. Mr. RAM is someone very special, awesome human being. As experienced and frequent traveller, i can say that i will continue to visit every city with BigBus because of him, Mr. RAM. I would also like to emphasize the care of Mrs. Stacey. She was also very helpful with us. Please share this with BigBus managers in Dubai. Best regards, Nuno

Was for us a top offer with several extras! The only minus point was that the stops of Big Bus were quite poorly signposted.
