Great day tour of Abu Dhabi from Dubai. The booking process was very easy, and the tour company helpfully left a message at our hotel indicating that the pickup time was going to be slightly later than they originally thought. We did wait for about 20-30 minutes between the shuttle picking us up at the hotel and the large coach arriving at the designated spot to take us to Abu Dhabi. The tour guide spoke very good English (and German) and was very knowledgeable about the Emirates. The tour company helpfully provided abayas at the Grand Mosque for women who were not wearing full sleeves and pants/skirts. Overall, it was a great tour and a great value.
I would recommend a bus tour of Abu Dhabi rather than trying to explore it on one's own. It did not appear to be as easy to get around as Dubai (I don't think it has a Metro system, for instance) and the major tourist sites are not close to one another.
