We had three bookings for hop on hop off bus tours, in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha. Everything worked fine. We were always able to use the buses from the port and even exchange tickets at the port in Doha. Although we were only able to go ashore in Doha one day later (according to validity), the tickets were issued without any problems. Everything was great and can only be recommended.

Friendly staff at bus stops but not intrusive. Best way to explore Abu Dhabi. Great information about the city through headphones in 8 languages. With this tour you can save yourself the city tour. you should definitely take the 5-day ticket if you have the time. for the green tour you have to think about sitting outside.

Very nice with small weaknesses

+ The staff was very friendly and the buses were always on time + Few guests, so you could choose the best seats + The night tour was more extensive than expected as it goes all the center and also to the mosque - The dhow ride only takes place in during the winter months, which is not noted on the homepage. In general, the information on the homepage is rather poor. - The yacht tour on Yas Island is extremely boring and can be skipped. You drive out of the harbor at a snail's pace, only construction sites left and right and turn around again after half an hour.
