Arabian charm blends into futuristic fantasy on our Abu Dhabi bus tour. Hop on and hop off to discover rich tradition at the Grand Mosque and Heritage Village, modern majesty at the Louvre and chase thrills at Yas Island’s Ferrari World.

You can hop on and off at any of the stops to explore at your own leisure. Our open-top double decker 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 3 days, including unlimited rides per loop during hours of operation.

 Air conditioning is available on the lower deck and recorded commentary is available in 8 languages including English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese, Arabic and Russian. 

The tour is fun, safe and a relaxed way to explore the city. Above all, it guarantees some breathtaking views of Abu Dhabi.
  • Explore Abu Dhabi with ease with a 24-hour Big Bus hop-on hop-off pass
  • Sightsee how you want: Use the 25 stops and optional extras as you wish
  • View sights such as the Grand Mosque and hear about them via onboard audio
  • Upgrade to a 2- or 3-day pass for more sightseeing
What to Expect
Book your required ticket and set off to explore Abu Dhabi on the hop-on hop-off Big Bus double-decker. Your ticket is valid from time of first use and entitles you to numerous complimentary extras. Board the open-top bus and stay aboard to enjoy the views along the full routes, or use any of the 24 stops to explore on foot. Either way, learn about the sights from the onboard commentary, available in various languages. Stay aboard to admire the skyscraper-lined Corniche, disembark to explore the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, or hop out to shop at the Dubai Marina Mall—the choice is yours. Plus, take the guided shuttle around Yas Island to see Ferrari World, the Formula I circuit, and more. Buses run at regular intervals so it’s easy to resume your sightseeing from wherever you left off. See the Itinerary for a full list of stops and benefits.

A lot of repeated commentary and only hourly departures. Still like hopon hopoff though. I hate having to write 100 charactes too.

We purchased our tickets from Diane who advised us of our ticket options and the highlights of each bus route. Diane did an awesome job helping us with our sightseeing decisions and our overall vacation experience. Would definitely work with her again.

Hi all, just returned from 10 days in Abu Dhabi, straight to the issue, the hop on off bus is poor, apart from travelling through the corniche beach area the rest is fodder, also the green route will bore you to death, far too much waste land along the way, however if you wish
