I loved seeing the city from the open top deck. Make sure you get a Big Bus map and avoid doing the tour on a Friday because several places are closed to the public. There's a lot to see in one day, so be sure to start early. The head phone provided info guide was really useful too.

You can visit all important sights of the city with one bus tour. Cheap tickets, many special offers like a Dhow Cruise, free entry to Skytower and more sights. Nice and helpful staff. A great thanks to Normita and Erlin who helped us with the information on tickets and facts on the sights in a very helpful way.

This is best way to see the attractions of Abu Dhabi. Great commentry free water and pleasant drive. The timings of the buses were fairly accurate considering the traffic. I would recommend doing two days as I found doing one was not enough time to do all the stops. Good value for money.

Lovely, friendly staff all along the way and our tour guide around Yas Island (Caren?) had a good knowledge of everything, delivered in an entertaining way. You can hop on and off as you like, one day isn't enough so take the 48 hour pass if you can.

The Big Bus Tours of Abu Dhabi area, including the Yas Island, was a wonderful way to see and hear about the culture of the area. Caren, the narrator for Yas Island was fun and very knowledgeable of the area and Francis, our driver, made sure we had a safe fun trip. I was fascinated by the architecture of the... More
