We had a great time on this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and helpful. We learnt a lot about Dubai and UAE and the Sheik Zayed Mosque is spectacular.
It was an interesting and educational visit to A/D and the highlight was obviously the visit to the Mosque. We realise time restrains a tour but to see more of A/D by coach would have bveen useful - not stopping to visit a place. A by product was to see more of Dubai and the area between the two countries / dessert. Thank you.
Very good. I was collected from my dubai hotel at 07.50 as advised. The trip was informative. The stop for food was ideally timed and at a good location. The attractions we visited were all very good and overall the trip was real value for money.
The hightlight of the Aby Dhabi tour was the mosque, absolutely beautiful, apparently much better than the Taj Mahal according to one of the tourists. The rest of the tour was a little mundane but the tour guide was absolutely fabulous, so knowledgable and friendly.
Great to be directed to all the points of interest. The mosque in Abu Dhabi was well worth the visit.
What a great tour. The visit to the mosque was unforgetable. Not sure about the visits to the other tour sites, could have been better. Will however recommend this tour.
Despite the traffic, the experience inside the mosque was incredible and unforgettable. The tour guide was very friendly and easygoing.
Incredible mosque visit and city tour.
The town itself is nothing special, however the tour is worth it because of the mosque. I wouldn't have a chance otherwise to visit a mosque inside. The craft is breathtaking. It was great experience.
This was an interesting trip, although there are not a great deal of things to see and do in Abu Dhabi itself.
the tour guide was friendly. also i was staying in abu dhabi and they agreed to pick me up in my hotel which was great.
Mosque was the only thing that tour had worth seeing, exhibition nothing much to talk about. Seeing hotels and buildings from far not worth at all. Marina stop for lunch by the time you buy food at food court time is up. You should be able to show us Ferrari race course and Yas island more than showing us from highway from the tour bus. You pick us at 6:30 am from hotel and you are in Dubai picking up other people till 9:30 and waiting on freeway for 45 mins to pick up more people before going to Abu Dabi I would never do it. I would rather pay more and take a private taxi. I would suggest people to look more in details before they book the tour.
We went on the Abu Dhabi sight-seeing tour. On the border of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Sayid, the ruler of Abu Dhabi, has had a mosque built for the citizens. It was impressively huge and very beautiful. We went inside and were allowed to take photos. Next we visited the Museum, which is a showcase for the old Sheikh, who founded the Emirate States. In it were his collection of old cars, hunting trophies and gifts from the heads of state of other nations. We also visited a Heritage Village, where there were tents set up which showed the Bedouins lifestyle, their kitchen and sleeping mats. There were some stalls that sold a few touristy souvenirs. A camel in an enclosure made for a kodak moment. We then went on a town tour and saw the buildings of Abu Dhabi and the Sheikh's palace from a distance. I didn't quite get a sense of Abu Dhabi being the Arabian Jewel from this tour. We had lunch in the Marina Mall. I understand there is one mall where you can see a man-made surf beach where a person can actually surf, but we didn't go there. All in all, it was an okay way to spend the day. I would give it 6/10.
