In addition, enjoy a FREE Dhow Cruise ride where you can see the beautiful skyline of Abu Dhabi while relaxing on a cruise.

On the Big Bus Tour, you can get off the bus at the well-located stops to visit attractions or explore 25 places of interest. Visit the places that fascinate you and explore them for as little or as long as you like. Choose from three ticket options – Classic, Premium and Deluxe, and leave the open-top buses as many times as you want within the three validity options – 1, 2 and 3-day.

On the open-topped double decker bus, audio-commentary is offered in multiple languages.
