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 was fantastic. Due to time constraints, we only managed the green line, which goes through the Louvre, Yas Island and the great Zayed Mosque. We had not known that the route without getting off takes 1 hour and 40 minutes. But it is very worth seeing. You can see a lot of what's new. The explanations over headphones are very good. The approach to the mosque, which could be seen very well from all sides, was particularly impressive. It is well known that she is not only very big but also beautiful. But when you see them in front of you, you think you've been transported back in time to 1001 Nights, a dream.
