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.

The sightseeing tour was good and interesting as usual. Since we arrived at the port by cruise ship, I have to commend that the shuttle bus to the central point in the city was very well organized. On the negative side, there was no one on site to help me cancel my wife's ticket, who was sick that night.
