City Sightseeing Sharjah, the tour buses launched by Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) in collaboration with City Sightseeing Worldwide, recently launched the new Explorer Package which gives the emirate’s visitors and residents the opportunity to discover the charms of Sharjah thanks to various perks such as free entry to the city’s premier tourist destinations and heritage landmarks.

The package includes a 24-hour City Sightseeing Sharjah ticket, free entry to the Sharjah Aquarium and various museums along the CSS routes, a free ride on the Eye of the Emirates in Al Qasba, and a 25% discount at El Manza restaurant at Al Majaz Waterfront. Tickets are priced at Dh135 per adult and Dh70 per child.

Chief Operating Officer of Shurooq, Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, commented, “This year, we celebrate Sharjah’s recognition as the Capital of Arab Tourism. Through the launch of the new Explorer Package, we look forward to attracting more visitors and residents to discover the charming landmarks of Sharjah, its tourist and leisure destinations, and its heritage sites at affordable prices for everyone.”

Al Qaseer added that the new package will help increase the number of visitors to the most famous landmarks in Sharjah due to its added value and gives passengers the opportunity to receive discounts in one of the region’s most famous Moroccan restaurant 7 days a week.

The operator’s specially outfitted double-decker buses can accommodate 72 persons. Passengers can use the buses on any of City Sightseeing Sharjah’s three routes: The Red Route (the leisure tour, 13 stops - 1 hour 30 minutes total), the Green Route (the cultural tour, 8 stops - 60 minutes), and the Blue Route (the night tour, 12 stops - 1 hour 30 minutes).

City Sightseeing Sharjah has reached great milestones since its inception, including the organisation of evening tours last summer, giving passengers the opportunity to discover the emirate’s rich cultural heritage, in addition to making tickets available in over 60 locations in Sharjah.

The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) launched City Sightseeing Sharjah in December 2012, in collaboration with City Sightseeing Worldwide, the world leading sightseeing tours provider. The tours were operational by January 2013.

City Sightseeing Sharjah is the first tour project in the gulf region under the trademark City Sightseeing, which operates on 5 continents across the globe, and in over 100 of the most important cities in the world.
