    Lovely routes with modern busses. The information is clear and in 8 languages. The timetable is every 20 minutes. Of you arrivé on a cruiseschip, Big Bus provider a shuttle bus to the start of the route

  • 27-Jan-2020

    As the ship had altered the itinerary, we had two days here. Upgraded to a two day ticket without any trouble.
    A great way to see the place, lovely helpful staff, well done Big Bus, would definitely recommend this tour

  • 25-Nov-2019

    This was a well organized hop-on, hop-off bus that includes two different routes covering all the major sites in town. I found the frequency of buses to be accurate (every half hour), with good opportunities to coordinate rides on the two different lines. Abu Dhabi is so spread out that this was a really great way to get out to the Grand Mosque, and also visit several other sites in town and on Yas Island.

  • 31-Oct-2019

    Staff were excellent and very helpful. If planning a trip avoid Fridays for the tour as lots of venues are closed.
    For the 2 day pass the luxury boat cruise which replaced the Dhow cruise was not worth the time

  • 15-Mar-2019

    We visited Abu Dhabi last week and used the Big Bus Tour to see all the sights.
    We had a wonderful time and would recommend this tour to all travellers.

  • 02-Jan-2019

    The hop on hop off is a nice possibility of visiting the different sites in Abu Dhabi which are far away between them.

  • 30-Nov-2018

    Yas Island boring. Seems like a long trip with little to see. Would not recommend. Length of wait time at stops too long.

  • 23-Sep-2018

    We booked the deluxe package and were surprised with all the add on's that were included in the price. The buses were well looked after all of the headphone sockets worked. The commentary was good and informative. For a quick and easy way to see a city and to work out the parts that interest you this is the best option. All of the staff that we had contact with were very pleasant and professional.

    We went on the Al Ain day trip that was included on the deluxe package and it was a day well worth going on. The driver / guide Purma was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the trip.

  • 30-Mar-2018

    A fantastic coverage of areas and sights. Unlimited free cold water all day. Lovely helpful staff. Disappointing that the dhow cruise was unavailable - the 40 minute yacht cruise was ok but a bit boring.

  • 15-Jan-2018

    This tour promises a lot to new arrivals in the city. But interest quickly recedes as everything seems the same everywhere. Better commentary with more explanation and comments better timed to the location being experienced would be a big improvement.
