The bus runs very little, which is why it is more of a bus tour. If you want to get off at a stop, you have to spend 3 hours there until the next bust comes. I did the red route first and then the green route. Both were very nice and you could see a lot from the bus. The bus itself is air-conditioned, but rather a bit older. Not all headphone stations worked. The bus drivers were exceptionally friendly and helpful. One of the bus drivers later even took me to the airport in his private car. Price-performance rather expensive, but recommended if you don't get out and want to see the city briefly during a stopover.

Wonderful and completely sufficient to get to know the highlights in Abu Dhabi in a quick run or as an overview. When booking, you just have to be clear that you can only drive the red route and not the green one (Grand Mosque) with the Classic tariff (i.e. the simplest card).

It is a great way to experience the city if you are new. I like that the tour guide didn't just talk about the sites in Abu Dhabi but also talk about the history & culture of the UAE.

Unsure of where to get the bus as we had a taxi to the Louvre , but once the tour had started it went well.

Very nice and helpful staff! The best way to get to know the city! Always my pleasure
