This is an amazing way to see the sights of Abu Dhabi. We picked up the bus at Marina mall and spent the day seeing Abu Dhabi.
Your able to hop off and on depending on what interests you. The buses run frequently so by the time you’ve see the sight there is another bus there shortly. They provide you with ear phones so you can listen to information along the tour of what your seeing. Very good information provided in different languages. You can sit inside or outside on the top.. it gets windy up there once the bus picks up speed!
Perfect way to see the city and not worry about parking or getting lost! Highly recommend it!

Bought ticket on line with a 25% discount. The 5 day tour included a night tour and also a trip to Al Ain. I missed the Al Ain tour but heard it was good. For the $30 difference with the one day tour, you should really get the Deluxe option for 5 days if you have the time.

If you want to see as much of Abu Dhabi in a very short time then this is it . Not cheap but well worth the money . 2 main routes included . You need a two day ticket if you want to get off at several stops and investigate . However the must is to se the grand mosque . Earphone commentary in 8 languages . Open top if you can stand the heat but wind helps to cool you down

We visited by Cruise ship and had paid for our tickets onboard for Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Once at the bus terminus the company’s staff tried to sell us tickets for the next day in Dubai.
They were offering a 30% discount but soon withdrew it from cruise ship passengers. Seems that if you visit by ship then you are penalised.

Staff member Noel was awesome. Ruth was great, too. Very knowledgeable and helpful with plenty of recommendations for area food. Driver Nasim was fantastic. Would recommend Big Bus for sightseeing if you're in a city where they are available.

Lovely staff. Great connections and you will see all of Abu Dhabi. The only down side is you are driving all around which takes a lot of time. there is not air conditioning on these busses and one driver tried to drive past us rather than stop so we would have been stranded till the next bus. Horrible. It would be quicker to pay for a taxi to venues so you would have air con, privacy and not be driving all around Abu Dhabi. Not recommended.

I always use big bus in every place i go.. it is covering most areas and its stations are always near popular places you will never lose your way trying to reach it.
It has two lines in Abudhabi the green line and the red line.. the two lines covering all the places you will want to go.
Special thanks to karol she gave me a card with 10% discount i can use it in my future rides with big bus

Very good tour, we bought the two day ticket at the cruise terminal, this was better value than the deal they were selling on the cruise.
Raju was very helpful & made sure we had the passes required for the tour of the mosque. Would definitely recommend as there is a lot to see in Abu Dhabi.

We booked the Red Line and want to say thank you to RAJU for his support. He booked us a slot for the Sheikh Zayed Mosque very quickly as we had no Internet at this time. Furthermore he called a Taxi for us. After the visit of the mosque we continurd the Red City Tour. It was a great day in Abu Dhabi.

The best way to see all the city highlights in 2 days. There is a good audio guide which tells a lot about city history as well. Stuff is very professional and friendly. I would point out the help from Mr.Raju who was very helping, telling me the times when the mosque had prayer, etc. All together, highly recommended!
