    • Buses were prompt and staff were very helpful....

    • The simple way to see Abu Dhabi

      We spent 2 days on the Big Bus! Couple hop on and off at any stop. The headphones worked well and the commentary was excellent. The second route which started at the Grand Mosque...

    • Abu Dhabi Holiday Experience

      Very well organised - buses leave on time. Would be better if they ran more frequently especially from Ferrari World. Also some of the headphone systems were not working....

      Jane Hillman, United Kingdom
    • The Dhow cruise was replaced with a yatch cruise which I didn't really enjoy. I noticed Isango's tickets were lower than other booking sites
