In Dubai, visit the Gold Souk or The Dubai Mall, one of the world’s biggest shopping malls. In Abu Dhabi, perhaps leave the bus to stroll along the palm-lined Corniche or visit the beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Enjoy an unlimited number of Big Bus circuits on each day in either city, and be sure to enjoy the additional benefits that come with your ticket.

Very good option to get to know main points of interest in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Punctual and kind service.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2016

An ideal way to see all the highlights, most informative and helpful staff. Too much to see and so little time. Abu Dhabi is A MUST DO, as is the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the Dhow Cruise

Excellent tour, and value for money

Markus R

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Very well organized from A to Z. At every bus stop was a representative of Big Bus. Could not have been any better. Due to the very intense heat of around 45 degrees celsius sitting on the outdoor bus deck was only possible for a couple of minutes.

Great value for money.

An awesome way to get around Dubai. Could not get off at all stops due to too little time. Staff very helpful.

Pat D

4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

This was an excellent opportunity to see both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The buses ran regularly and the commentary was excellent. Unfortunately there was no info available on the Yas Island leg. Staff were very helpful and there was always cool bottled water available much needed in the 49degree heat. Bought the two day pass for both cities ... Needed to go to the main bus terminal to get the bus between the two but this was cheap and easy and only took about an hour. Great way to get around.
