Hop on hop off bus tour or fully organized tour?

Having 4 says in Dubai next year. Trying to decide whether to boom a city tour (Arabian adventures) or just do places ourselves on the hop on hop off bus? We are experienced travelers and have done both options in other cities but not sure about Dubai?

If you are experienced travelers and prepare your trip a bit, you might want to save the money for a tour (organised or big bus) totally.

The metro offers great views of Dubai. Taxi are cheap. The only advantage of the tours are the comments and that the Big Bus offers good photo shoot opportunities from the upper deck.

Maybe have a look where the Big Bus goes and pick the sights yourself.

The Big Bus Tour is not good value for money. We thought it was very poor in comparison to those we'd done in other countries. Make a lists of places you want to see and use a taxi or metro instead.
