Wir haben unseren Urlaub in Abu Dhabi beendet und hatten das 5 Tages Ticket gebucht. Alles hat super geklappt, die Busse waren pünktlich und alle waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ein besonderes Dankeschön an Shalee, die uns noch den Tipp gegeben hat, im Emirates palace Hotel einen Cappuccino mit echten Goldsplittern zu trinken. Der Audioguide war sehr informativ. Wenn wir wieder mal Urlaub in einer Großstadt machen, würden wir auf jeden Fall nochmal ein Big Bus Tour kaufen.
