Plus, choose to enjoy FREE entry to the Marina Mall Sky Tower, a FREE Yas Island Drive,a FREE entry to the Heritage Village, a FREE entry to Zayed Centre & Etihad Modern Art Gallery, 50% discount on the entry to the observation deck of Etihad Towers and a FREE Corniche cruise.

    On the Big Bus Tour, you can get off the bus at the well-located stops to visit attractions or explore places of interest. Visit the places that fascinate you and explore them for as little or as long as you like. Choose from three ticket options – Classic, Premium and Deluxe, and leave the open-top buses as many times as you want within the three validity options – 1, 2 and 3-day.

    On the open-topped double decker bus, audio-commentary is offered in multiple languages.
