  • Overview

    At first Abu Dhabi may seem quite sedate but take a tour around the city with its high rise buildings, multi-lane highways, colossal malls and pristine beaches, and it will perhaps turn out to be one of the most dramatic cities in the world.

    The Big Bus Abu Dhabi Hop-On, Hop-Off Day Tour makes sure that you get to explore the top attractions of the city, be it the grand Marina Mall, the pompous Emirates Palace Hotel or the opulent Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque or the traditional Iranian Market.

    In addition, enjoy a FREE Dhow Cruise ride where you can see the beautiful skyline of Abu Dhabi while relaxing on a cruise.

    On the Big Bus Tour, you can get off the bus at the well-located stops to visit attractions or explore 25 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.
