Great way to see the city

Great way to see Abu Dhabi especially if your time is limited. Very punctual and 30 minutes is plenty to see some places while 1 hour is necessary for other places.

My family was visiting from overseas. After having experienced the exiting big bus tours in Dubai, they tried the one in the Capital and found a tremendous difference. Abu Dhabi is a beautiful city. We believe that the bus tours in the Capital could be far more attractive.

We purchased the 24 hour ticket and were very happy with our ride. The maps provided were very informative and the water provided FOC was plentiful and cold. We did the Abu Dhabi circuit which took us to or near most of the attractions. We also took the Yas bus which was great. Being higher up we got to see... More

It was a really good ride, so relaxing and beautiful scenery. They offer free water on the bus. Our driver was called Deepak and he was very polite and helpful. I would definitely recommend the bus.

Was very useful getting around as students without a car, and a lot cheaper than taxiing. We chose the 1 week unlimited pass for Abu Dhabi and Dubai which gave us both lots of experiences (including three 1h boat cruises, desert safari, half day trip to another town and aquarium tickets) and the time to do them! I really recommend... More
