Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Abu Dhabi City Sightseeing Tour - The Arabian Jewel. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
panctual, and professional in general. Not prohibitly expensive and the tour guide was friendly and very knowledgable. The only thing is that in AbuDhabi heritage building the free time was less than 20 minutes which was very little considering what one has to see and experience. Nevertheless I will consider taking another tour via this tour operator in the future.
Tour was very good. Very small group and the guide was both knowledgeable and courteous.
The Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi was woth the trip by itself.
Orient Tours who subcrontracted the Viator Tour was on time and everything went smoothly.
This is a good tour, especially the Mosque as the engineering is brilliant. The tour guide was good but a little repetative with the info given on the bus trip.
All in all a good day trip...maybe should take in a closer look at the Grand Prix track or Ferrari world.
Trip very enjoyable, Mosque stunning. Pity guide didn't speak slightly better English, but not too bad. Why do they always hold the mike so close to their mouths which makes even harder to understand (happens on others trips as well so not the only ones!)
THe Mosque is a must see. A little more overview of the city and buildings would have been nice. Tour takes you only to Mosque (which is a must see) and to a heritage villa which there is nothing to see. Would have liked to see more of the city
Pick up from hotel perfect,guide very friendly and professional,driver OK but in my eyes we spent too long time in the Shopping Mall
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.
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.
Nice tour, but no body inform us that ABAIA is mast in order to enter the mosque?! If you are just tourist you will get abaya at entrance, but not for organized group!!!!
The mosque was worth seeing, but I nearly didn't get in as the security guard said that my long sleeves were transparent. I ended up putting a shawl over my shirt. Long day but glad we went.
Was picked up from Hotel in good time by taxi and taken to a rendezvous point to join the rest of the tour. At this point was asked if I had the appropriate clothing for wearing to go into the Mosque. I knew that I had to have my head covered so had brought a pashmina with me. Unfortunately I didn't have long sleeves or appropriate clothing to my ankles. At no point when signing up to this tour was I told exactly what to wear. This was the same for 3 others on the trip. The main reason for going on this trip was to see the Mosque. However the tour guide was excellent and took us back to the hotel to enable me to dress appropriately. He did this for another person also. But this delayed the whole tour which wasn't good. Please in future where there are special requirements, etc. highlight these on your web site and make it very clear what is expected. Overall though the trip to the Mosque was indeed the highlight and I am glad that I was able to go inside. Please do something to prevent others missing out.
Worth going to visit the Mosque but nothing else was worth visiting.
Too much time wasted on picking up other passengers (20+ persons), only visited 3 places while 'passing by other attractions and was given 45 minutes for lunch.
Interesting tour content and a lovely and friendly guide. However on the day i took this tour there was a family present that had no consideration for anyone else and at each stop were consistently late back to the bus by about 20 - 30 minutes and everyone else sat around on the bus waiting. As a result we were rushed through all the afternoon activities so we could get back to Dubai at the designated time. The tour operators should enforce punctuality and if people continually can't be bothered to adhere to these times they should be left behind.
