World’s leading open-top bus brand City Sightseeing is relaunching its operations in Dubai, with its unique, award-winning city tour featuring new, improved health and safety measures and a limited-time offer for residents.

City Sightseeing Dubai, which began as a joint venture with the dnata Travel Group in 2014, has evolved to become one of the city’s most popular and well-known tour options. It is famous for its fun-filled, iconic red open-top buses and “hop-on, hop-off” concept, which allows passengers to explore a city’s top sights and attractions while listening to an informative audio guide.

As domestic tourism continues to witness an increase in traffic, the City Sightseeing team is launching a new offer for residents to rediscover Dubai, or to take their visitors to the city on an unforgettable tour of its top attractions, with up to 50 percent off the cost of a standard fare for a limited time.

“Domestic tourists can find themselves on a quest to discover how well they know the city and to mark the occasion, we are launching an introductory offer where UAE residents can purchase 2-for-1 tickets, for the chance to rediscover Dubai or explore for the first time some of its most extraordinary areas and landmarks, or showcase them to visiting friends and family,” commented Alaa AlKhatib, VP Destination Management at dnata Travel Group.
