As the ship had altered the itinerary, we had two days here. Upgraded to a two day ticket without any trouble.
A great way to see the place, lovely helpful staff, well done Big Bus, would definitely recommend this tour
This was a well organized hop-on, hop-off bus that includes two different routes covering all the major sites in town. I found the frequency of buses to be accurate (every half hour), with good opportunities to coordinate rides on the two different lines. Abu Dhabi is so spread out that this was a really great way to get out to the Grand Mosque, and also visit several other sites in town and on Yas Island.
Staff were excellent and very helpful. If planning a trip avoid Fridays for the tour as lots of venues are closed.
For the 2 day pass the luxury boat cruise which replaced the Dhow cruise was not worth the time

It was a great experience. Sand dunes was amazing and I loved it. I am not a big fan of the tanoora show altogether, but this show was well done.

For our first visit in Abu Dhabi we booked a day tour to get acquainted with the city. Our guide James contacted us just after we booked to introduce himself and ask about our needs so he could tailor the day to suit us. He gladly abliged and even made some suggestions that Would complement our plans.
On the day James (who has spent a great deal of his life in the UAE) was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with local history, the sights as well as what life is like here.
We thoroughly recommend James and his group when you visit Abu Dhabi. Thanks!

One day in Abu Dhabi
, Jan 2020
We had a private tour through Mr Zahid as the tour guide. He was not only the driver but he was wearing many hats at one time. A good photographer, a well trained tour guide and also our 'Nanny' too.
We learnt quite a bit through the one day tour.
It was a relax and comfortable tour.
The only issue is the tour operator itinerary. It should be more specific in future.
On this fantastic full day tour to Abu Dhabi you will explore various magnificent palaces including the impressive architecture of Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The second half of the day tour will begin with a visit to the one and only Ferrari World branded theme park and home to amazing rides, attractions and car museum.
Very well organised and excellent guide. Faultless service from the lovely guide and Viator as a company. Would have given it 5 stars but like others say 2 hours at the mall is too long. You would have time to go up the Burj Kalifa but unless you buy a ticket in advance its way too much money.

The place Al interesting. The trip to Jebel Hafeet turned to be disappointing. We just stopped somewhere along the way to the top for a photo shoot. Not impressive at all.
