It was a really good ride, so relaxing and beautiful scenery. They offer free water on the bus. Our driver was called Deepak and he was very polite and helpful. I would definitely recommend the bus.

Was very useful getting around as students without a car, and a lot cheaper than taxiing. We chose the 1 week unlimited pass for Abu Dhabi and Dubai which gave us both lots of experiences (including three 1h boat cruises, desert safari, half day trip to another town and aquarium tickets) and the time to do them! I really recommend... More

Touring with Big Bus Tours is the perfect way to get around especially if you have a packed schedule and want to see places quickly. We had a comfortable time touring Abu Dhabi during our day trip. Mr. Deepak was a wonderful driver. Free water is included in the bus. Wish there was free wi-fi too, though.

Have used the services of big bus tours in other cities and found the service to be pretty similar. Friendly staff, clean buses with free water available in a fridge area just behind the driver. The start finish point for the red route is at the marina mall so be mindful if you catch the last bus and are looking... More

We found the drivers and staff very courteous and friendly. The bus was clean and took us to all the places we wanted to go. It adhered to the timetable which gave us a good opportunity to get off and have a look around knowing there would be another one along. We always do these bus trips in overseas cities... More

Have used this company before in Oman. Very expensive in Abu Dhabi. As usual good way of seeing the highlights, but not at the price offered. If we had bought the combined Muscat and Abu Dhabi ticket, then it would have been good value.

Decided to do the big bus to tour Abu Dhabi because we had limited time . Very unfriendly drivers. Covers whole of Abu Dhabi but some unnecessary stops which causes a lot of time wastage. I think we would have been better off just taking a taxi to the places we wished to see.
