Overview
Enjoy hop-on hop-off Big Bus tours in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for less with this great-value combo. Ideal for travelers with limited time, it lets you sightsee your own way in both cities with a 24-hour pass for use in Dubai followed by the same in Abu Dhabi. Check out the sights, use the shuttle to get between the two cities, and enjoy extras including Dubai Museum admission.
Highlights
  • Save money with a discounted Dubai and Abi Dhabi hop-on hop-off tour combo
  • 24-hour hop-on hop-off bus pass in each city to see their sites in less time
  • Sightsee your way: Stay aboard for the full route or get out to explore

What to Expect
Start by using your 24-hour pass in Dubai before your 24-hour Abu Dhabi ticket. Stay aboard to experience the sights along each full route with the onboard commentary, or hop out at stops to explore further. In Dubai, disembark at Dubai Mall or Jumeirah Mosque, while in Abu Dhabi, alight to visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque or Corniche.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, which we take into account at the Big Bus Tours. We are sorry to learn that you did not enjoy the tour on your last visit for the mentioned reason. We do provide a Dubai to Abu Dhabi return shuttle service complimentary to our Dubai guests. Historically we used to drop off and pick up passengers at the Grand Mosque, but due to customer feedback and demand of improved connectivity we changed the pick-up location. Customer service and your big bus experience is very important to us, we take your comments onboard and will use this to further improve our service. Please feel free to share with us further suggestions and/or feedback on infoad@bigbustours.com to help serve you better in the coming future. Your opinion does matter and we do look forward to welcome you once again on board the Big Bus Tours. With Best Regards
