Big Bus Company offers Abu Dhabi tours
The Big Bus Company, a family owned company that has operated open – top sightseeing bus tours in London since 1991 and Dubai since 2002, is proud to announce the launch, of its newest destination of Abu Dhabi on November 22nd, 2009. The new tour is designed to offer tourists and residents alike the opportunity to see the capital as never before.
Famous for its traditional open-top double decker buses, The Big Bus Sightseeing Tour is the perfect introduction to Abu Dhabi. The 24 hour ticket will provide access to all of the Big Bus Tour routes, with 11 stops where guests can hop-on and hop-off at their leisure allowing visitors complete control of their itinerary.
The carefully designed tours take you to all the major landmarks, from the magnificent Sheikh Zayed Mosque to traditional Souks and from the luxurious Emirates Palace Hotel to the historic Heritage Village, while your personal audio commentary in a choice of 8 languages provides a fascinating insight into the history and culture of the city. Languages available include Arabic, English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin and Russian.
Chris Crompton, General Manager of Big Bus Tours LLC said “We are all very excited about this latest addition to the Big Bus family. The development in Abu Dhabi at the moment is phenomenal as the city works hard to establish itself on the Global Tourism map and we are delighted to be able to offer our passengers the only open top double decker tour of this city. Initially we will operate just the one route that takes in all of the sights and attractions of this fascinating city; however, as the city expands onto the neighbouring islands we will grow with it to make sure that all of the new sights of Abu Dhabi are included in the Big Bus tour.”
Tours will depart daily, 7 days a week from Marina Mall, with regular departures between 9am and 5pm while tickets are available online at bigbustours.com, from your hotel or at the Big Bus sales desk at Marina Mall.
