As regards technical parameters, it is worth noting that the Wonder Bus admits up to 49 passengers; its maximum speed is 120 km/h. The amphibious bus is equipped with everything necessary, from a first aid kit and life jackets, to video cameras and air conditioning, guide's microphone and fire-fighting system.

During the water tour you will see iconic landmarks located in the coastal area of Dubai. It is no secret that it’s quite hot in Dubai during the day, so here you will be offered refreshments. Passengers are accompanied by a guide, who entertains them with interesting stories about the city and the gulf.

Prices: ticket price for adults - 160 dirhams, for children - 115 dirhams. Tickets can be bought in advance at a discount: adults - 135 dirhams, children - 100 dirhams.
