Not sure about value for money !

First thing I do when in a new city is the hop on hop off bus. I love them. But I have to admit I wouldn't be running bk to this one. There is definitely value for money if you enjoy theme parks . We got the 48 hr ticket. It included 2 routes and a boat trip. The 2nd route was on Yas Island more theme pk. Not us . But the 1st was around the city. To be honest we only found a few places we wanted to get off at. It may not be worth the price if this is the case. The boat trip was at different times than advertised so be sure to ask. All in all I would not recommend as FOR US we don't do theme pks , the boat trips times didn't suit our schedule! The 2.5 hr trip around the city had only 4 out of 16 ( I think ) stops we wanted to visit. We were a large group so to taxi would have been better value money and time wise for us.

Abu Dhabi ON / Abu Dhabi off

Always identical, a red line with the bus to make the tour(ballot) of the city with stops(rulings) for the various sites where monuments to be visited and a blue line which leads to the island of Yas to discover it Ferrari World, water world and also the big circuit of formule1 then there are exceptions as here where a green line is added to make a boat ride to discover of the sea another view(sight) of the city here, in this particular case a tour(ballot) in Dhow to see the ledge and take views(sights) with another angle. As a rule(in principle) a day is sufficient(self-important), Here, the distances being too long and also the number of buses is apparently limited, plan a minimum of two days to see everything.

Good way to get around Abu Dhabi in a short time

We only had two days in Abu Dhabi, so this was a very good way to see the city. We stayed at the Etihad towers and the bus stop was right in front of the hotel, so that was extremely convenient. With the heat and humidity, the free water on the bus was extremely helpful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They changed out our vouchers a couple of stops into the tour. The lady came on the bus and did the exchange right there, so that was really nice. We also did the cruise and the Yas Island loop. The cruise was pretty good with nice views of the city, but Yas Island is just a long loop with not much at all to see. So unless you are going somewhere on Yas Island, I'd recommend just skipping it. All in all I think it was a fairly good value and if I had it to do all over again I would select this activity again and would recommend it to anyone who going to Abu Dhabi.
