This was a great tour, very informative. It was really hot- August but the bus was air conditioned with a group of around 16 travellers.

Unfortunately despite the tour being paid in full, I failed to join my family for I became ill on that day and was too weak to join them. However, nothing much missed though for I have been to Abu Dhabi already a few times before. More important for me was for my family to see the majestic sights of this impressive city and they were not disappointed! They had a lovely time with the company of other tourists and was assisted competently by their local guide who didn't fail to give them as much information as possible. Kudos!

A very interesting tour. The guide was very friendly. It could possibly last a bit more so as to see more things.

The tour was great! We were not rushed at the mosque, which was worth the trip itself! We enjoyed the Sheik Zayad museum. However it was really too hot to enjoy the outdoor museum.

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.

Excellent tour. The Mosque was well worth the visit. Glad we didn't miss it. The only down side, was the early start. 6.45 pick is a bit too early.

The tour was great. Hotel pick up was on the dot. Great tour guide that went over a lot of the history of the UAE. If you stay in the northern end of Dubai you will have to wake up really early in the morning for the pick up (we stayed in the Deira side, pick up was 6:25AM).

The guide was a very pleasant gentleman, very informative, and the trip made for a very relaxing day out. All the ladies were given black robes and headwear to don in the bus before entering the Mosque, and one gentleman who wore shorts above the knee had to put on a traditional white robe. They are very strict in the Mosque, but it is a stunning place. After that we made two more stops before lunch break and arrived back in Dubai by about 3.30pm, giving me the opportunity for a swim in my hotel pool etc before nightfall.
