UAE tour off to good start
Now into its second week of operation our newest tour in Sharjah, the UAE has got off to a good start with passengers hopping on board the bright red buses.
The bus tour service commenced with three buses as part of phase I of the project, with the number of buses to be increased in accordance with market demand.
The double- decker buses can accommodate 72 persons each and will operate seven days a week all year long. Ticket prices are set at AED 85 for adults and AED 45 for children with tickets valid for 24 hours.
The buses have been specifically designed to accommodate weather conditions of the region, with a convertible rooftop that can be removed during winter months for an open top tour experience or kept in place to ensure a fully air-conditioned interior for summer tours. The tickets can also be purchased at hotels and tour bus stops.
Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, chief operating officer of Shurooq said: “This step also comes in harmony with other steps, as the Authority has already embarked on a master plan to develop the Emirate’s tourism sector, most notably the marine tourism industry, as well as other significant sectors.”
The buses include an audio guide in German, Russian, English and Arabic with five more languages – Chinese, Spanish, Urdu, Hindi, and French – are to be added in the future. Find out more about the tour here and buy your tickets.Return to News Homepage
