The guide/driver was on time and very pleasant. Although Malik our guide talked a lot he was passionate about the history.
A must do! If your only time in the UAE is in Dubai, this excursion offers an interesting glimpse into the capitol of the Emirates. The main highlight is visiting the mosque which is well worth your time. Our guide Yassar, and the tour team, without question made the trip for us. He was informative, engaging and funny. Due to cultural expectancies, what you wear on this trip is extremely important. Ladies, clothes to the wrist and ankles required with no transparency. Scarves or fabric to cover the head and shoulders as well required. Men, shorts ok but they must cover to below the knee. We were lucky in that Yassar took extreme care in how we looked before we left our hotel which allowed us all to make modifications before starting the tour. We must confess, his help in stylishly tying our headwear was most impressive! Do note that the amount of walking to / from the car park is sizable. By design, this tour is fantastic for small groups as considerations are made in route to accommodate interests and/or needs. Our groups is multi-generational and we appreciated the ability to skip the amusement part. It helped that Yassar was able to get us into the exclusive Emirates Palace hotel for a walkabout! Talk about AMAZING! Through Yassar, we learned a great deal about the history of the Emirates. The visit to the Historical Village offers a phenomenal view into the investment and development that has been made over a short period of time. Lunch at the restaurant in the village is truly worthwhile. Very authentic and tasty!
Our guide Norman was excellent and provided answers to our many questions. Liked all sites we visited but especially the museum dedicated to Sheik Zayed.
Very convenient private tour, from/to the hotel with driver and guide, very good both of them
Amazing experience. Women, make sure you know that you have to be totally covered up. The mosque was beautiful and our tour guide, Daniela, made sure to let us know before we left our hotel that we needed to have sweaters and head scarfs. Tour was worth every dime.
This was a great tour. Mr.Malik and the driver were the best. On the drive from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, Mr. Malik told us the history of the area and intelligently answered any questions we had. The Grand Mosque is such a beautiful edifice! I am not Muslim, but the people and atmosphere at the Mosque demands my respect. We had a nice visit at the Heritage Village and the Shiekh Zayed Museum. I would take this tour again and highly recommend Mr. Malik.
This tour was absolutely worth every penny. Our driver Kotu and guide Malik gave us the royal treatment and kept us laughing. Malik was very knowledgable and knew everything about Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I don't know how he keeps all of that history in his head lol. This is a must do, while others are in large groups at the various sites, you get personalized attention and access.
Very good tour with a nice lunch at the top of a skyscraper where we could look over the entire city. We had the best Quiche Lorraine that I've had in a long time. The Grand Mosque is beautiful be sure to wear a long sleeved shirt and pants or a skirt that cover your ankles as well as a scarf to cover your head. The guards are very nice to visitors but very strict about the dress code. The Heritage Village is very nice however go to the bathroom before or after you go!
Perfect tour - thanks to our guide who knew everything worth knowing.
Carla, our guide, did an excellent job and gave us tons of information about Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Visiting the Mosque was quite an experience, the site is beautiful and I would love to return next time I'm in the area. The Heritage Village was interesting, I wished we had more time to browse. We had lunch at the restaurant there and savored some delicious local specialties. Overall a great day and a great tour
Highly recommend this tour - private tour with guide and driver for an all day trip. Our guide, Dajon, was very informative and patient with all our requests. Visited all the high points in Abu Dhabi and back in Dubai by 5:00 pm.
Abu Dhabi is a must see. We had the same tour guide both days and Carla was great.
The tour was nice but the guide did not know and did not tell much.
Very knowledgeable guide Carla who took time to explain about all the places we visited and any questions we had about the area and culture in general.
our tour guide was very knowledgeable and showed us various others sites and explained what buildings were and the difference areas
Fantastic day out this made our holiday. Our private tour was well planed,included a lot and our driver Mahul was great. I would fully recommend this trip x

My wife Donna and just completed an outstanding private tour with an amazing and knowledgable tour guide This was a great way to end our journey to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.We have traveled to over 60 countries and all 7 continents within the last 10 years and have experienced many great tour guides, but no one has provided us with the exceptional service as our new friend from the tour company Mehul .We booked a private tour of Abu Dhabi from Dubai and Mehul Bulsara immediately began to show us how knowledgeable ,professional and experienced he was as a guide.He first prepared us for our journey to the Grand Mosque and informed us we need to wear proper clothing.He was extremely patient with my wife Donna during the security check , due to her capris not covering the ankles Mehul escorted her back to the car to get socks ,wrapped a scarf to cover her head and walked her through security .He was with us every step of the way , shopping through the Souk Market helping us find gifts and scarfs for Donna.Our guide Mehul graciously accommodated each of our request and even took us to Hard Rock Cafe to get a few of our friends pins for their collection.Mehul was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of Dubai and Abu Dhabi history with us.Mehul was very interested in learning about our American culture and when he visits the US in the near future ,we hope to extend to him and his family the same joy he provided us.We will leave Dubai and Abu Dhabi with a lifetime of great memories and a very special friend.We highly encourage you to book a private tour and ask for one of the best guides ever Mehul Bulsara .
