5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

The tour was great and interesting, they give all the explanation in eight languages so there is no way you miss something about it. The buses are very punctual, however it would be nice if there were more (only 4) so the waiting time would be less.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Great way to see the city when you only have a short stay.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

This was a ton of fun and worth doing. As a heads up. They have a bit of trouble verifying the voucher but it's no big deal. very fun!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

Absolutely wonderful. The staff are amazing, especially Tutti from the Philippines. Love the hop on hop off buses. We also used one in Rome which was fantastic. The Abu Dhabi one took us around the city in the morning . In the afternoon we went to Yas Island, visited Ferrari World and joined the bus again. Well worth the money. Would use Viator for all trips.
