Although not expensive the tour turned out to be very disappointing. The total round trip was about 2 hours but stops were very few and far between. We decided to get off at one stop, look around and walk to a stop further down the road. However, there were no 'Big Bus Tour' signs at other bus stops. They do provide you with a map as to where the stops are but this proved to be very sketchy and landmarks were not supposed to be where they should be. Consequently we stood at two different bus stops and watched the Big Bus drive straight on - not even stopping when we put our arm out. In the end we got a taxi back to the start of the tour and complained to the operators. They were surprised that we did not get on the bus where we had gotten off, explaining the the Abu Dhabi authorities would not, at the present time, allow them to put signs up at stops. So, even if you want to walk and enjoy the scenery along the see front - remember you will have to turn back to wherever you got off the bus - been on these buses all over the world and not encounted this problem before.
