Abu Dhabi blends incredible modern architecture with cutting-edge leisure attractions, museums, beaches and much more.
There’s no easier way to explore the city than on a hop-on, hop-off tour by open-top, double-decker Big Bus. Enjoy 360-degree views of Abu Dhabi’s skyscrapers, learn about the sights from the onboard commentary available in various languages, and hop on and off the air-conditioned bus at any of the 24 stops to explore on foot.
With your choice of ticket, stay aboard to admire panoramic views of the seafront Corniche with its lush palms and white-sand beaches backed by glass high-rises. Or step off the bus to visit the gleaming white-marble Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one Abu Dhabi’s most iconic buildings.
Next, maybe leave the bus to explore the cultural district of Saadiyat Island or dive into the 250 and more stores, cinema and restaurants of the Marina Mall.
Included with your ticket is a guided shuttle bus to Abu Dhabi’s main entertainment center — Yas Island, just outside the city. Ride the shuttle here and hop off to enjoy the attractions (own expense), including the spectacular Ferrari-brand theme park of Ferrari World; Yas Waterworld aqua park, and more.
You can hop on and off at any of the stops to explore on your own. Buses run at regular intervals so rejoining the tour is easy and convenient. Your hop-on hop off ticket is valid for 1-, 2-, or 5 days, including unlimited rides per loop during hours of operation.
The tour is fun, safe and a relaxed way to explore the city. Above all, it guarantees some breathtaking views of Abu Dhabi.
