We always chose the hop-on-hop-off tours whenever we are traveling. We were glad to find this one on the Headout website and that too at big discounts.
Headout is a reliable source, didn’t have a problem with redeeming the tickets. I was worried about the authenticity given the cheap rates but it turned out alright.
Purchasing the ticket was easy but we didn’t fully utilize the ticket. We ended up spending the day at our leisure at the Mosque and the Souk so it wasn’t worth the money.
You will get an email confirmation shortly. Please display the same on your mobile phone with a valid photo ID before or after you board the bus at any of the stops your pass is valid for.
The ticket is valid up until 6 months from the date of purchase. The day on which you exchange your voucher counts as the first day of your pass.
