We were booked for a 6 hour tour. Door to door was 10 hours. No complaints though since our guide, Lucy from Ocean Air (local office) was outstanding. She kept us moving all day. We may have saved a half hour but.. We went everywhere that we should go in Abu Dhabi (Mosque, Palace, etc). Well worth the money especially since it was a group of 12.
Our guide (Haseeb Khan) was brilliant , he was helpful , friendly and knowledgeable . The main sight we wanted to see were the mosque and the palace which need to be seen with you own eyes because pictures do not do them justice at all . The trip as a whole was very enjoyable and i would have no problem in recommending it to anyone .
Well organised day tripby Oceanair, good communication about pickup time at the hotel, friendly guide (Latif) and experienced driver. Food for lunch was a small self-service buffet, we got to sit outside with a view of the presidential palace. Overall a very good day trip!
The UAE is about more than Dubai: its capital city, Abu Dhabi, warrants a visit, too. This full-day trip lets you see it with ease, and with just a small group. Traveling between the sights by air-conditioned minivan, it covers all the must-sees, with visits to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Photo stop at Emirates Palace, Etihad Towers, and more. Entrance fees, plus pickup and drop-off at selected Dubai hotels and locations included.
Our tour guide and driver were amazing. We are from the United States and mistakenly selected a Spanish tour. Luckily when met with our tour guide, he spoke 4 languages (1 being Spanish). He was very knowledgeable and gave us enough time to grab lunch, explore, and see the sights.
I enjoyed the tour of the Mosque, but had higher expectation of Louvre and was somewhat disappointed. Overall, it was nice though and we had a very good time. I would not recommend the Cafe' inside Louvre. The food was't good, and it was expensive! Our tour guide (Shakill?) was a very nice person and he explained the features of the Mosque quite well.
Visiting two of Abu Dhabi’s cultural attractions—the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Louvre Abu Dhabi—from Dubai independently means relying on buses or cabs. This small-group tour includes transport and entrance fees, leaving you to enjoy the sights. Admire the Louvre's art before discovering the Grand Mosque on a guided tour, all with the assurance your return transport is organized. Central hotel pickup and drop-off provide final, convenient touches.
Delve into traditional Emirati culture over a delicious local meal on an engaging experience in Dubai. Visit the charming Al-Fahidi neighborhood in old Dubai’s Al Bastakiya district, and take a seat in a delightful, wind towered courtyard. After Arabic coffee and dates, enjoy a tasty feast of local specialties, including syrup-soaked ‘ligamat’ donuts. As you eat, enjoy a question-and-answer session with a local expert, covering local culture. Learn about Emirati dress, food and daily life, and leave with a deeper understanding of Dubai’s past and present.
Full-Day Tour of Abu Dhabi City From Dubai, Day Trip with Guide
Enjoyable experience for a very fair price
, Feb 2020
Long day that was filled with lots of short stops, photo ops, and insight into life in the UAE. Fun guide. We had plenty of time to visit the Grand Mosque, which was definitely the highlight of the trip. It'd make a great first day adventure, so that you can plan the rest of your time in UAE after.
The tour was a great one. I didn't have a local number but the tour operator contacted me via whatsapp and shared all the details. I followed up on few details and they were wiling to share the details.
Our guide Binu was very informative and had good knowledge about the history of Abu Dhabi. He helped us take pictures and was polite in all manners.
This is a highly recommended tour for one day. The pick up and drop is usually on time and they let you get down at any place if it is on the way.
Get to know the UAE’s ultra-modern capital of Abu Dhabi on this day trip from Dubai. Stroll around the white marble masterpiece of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, admire views of the Yas Marina Formula 1 circuit and Ferrari World, and visit the Heritage Village to learn about Abu Dhabi’s pre-oil past and Bedouin beginnings. Informative guided commentary, round-trip transport, and Dubai hotel pickup and drop-off are included.
We were very satisfied with Old and New City Dubai tour. The tour has good pacing and provided a good overview of Dubai. We enjoyed and learned quite a bit of information from Ramadan, our tour guide. He was cordial and took time to provide information in the Blue Mosque. He was more than willing to take photos. He did an excellent job narrating and keeping us together as a group. The Frame is a must visit to experience the old and new landscape from above. I recommend this half day tour.
The towering Dubai Frame is one of Dubai’s most unique architectural landmarks and affords incredible views of the city from its top walkway. On this half-day tour, combine a self-guided visit to the Dubai Frame with a comprehensive city tour of Dubai. Ride a traditional abra water taxi across Dubai Creek, browse the Gold and Spice souls, visit Palm Jumeirah Island, and enjoy photo stops at Jumeirah Mosque, Burj Al Arab, and Atlantis the Palm.
Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Mosque Half-Day Tour from Dubai
Best photos of the trip
, Feb 2020
It was a great small-group tour hosted by Zeeshan. He was awesome and gave me so much attention because I was a solo traveler. He showed me all of the best photo spots and gave me so much information along the tour. Our group had some very rude travelers and he didn’t let it bother him! Would definitely recommend this trip for any Dubai visitors. The Mosque is beautiful!
Noor was my guide and he was BRILLIANT!
The journey there & back was smooth. He had water which was lovely and was able to provide information about Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the journey there & back.
At the mosque he was attentive, gave us lots of information in an easy way, and was great at taking really good pictures.
I’ve recommended this tour, and Noor to a few friends who are heading to Dubai this year, he was brilliant.
If you have time for one non-desert tour from Dubai, Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a must. Completed in 2007, the UAE’s biggest mosque is a masterwork of marble domes and colonnades that has to be seen. Enjoy a guided tour of its highlights including the prayer hall, and learn about its design and history. Entrance fees, air-conditioned transport, hotel pickup and drop-off, and choice of morning and afternoon departure included.

Admire Miracle Garden’s floral sculptures before immersing yourself in Global Village’s food pavilions, miniaturized landmarks, rides, and shows. The experience includes Dubai hotel pickup and drop-off, shared transfers, and admission tickets.
Previsit acquintance of the guide is important and Kassim accommodate us to a tee. The visit was informative from social, cultural and architectural history. Places of interest were all within walking distance from on foot to boat ride, through the history of UAE establishment from the eyes and passion of the Emirates.Pity that it was a holiday -Muharram, for we could at least seep Emirates coffee or looking around within the internal spaces of the different residential traditional buildings. The visit of the wind tower and the understanding of how it works and where they are normally located in a home is an eye opener. Although quite sad that all old traditional spaces has been spruced up for tourism and lost its traditional lustre, the presence of this charming areas that support the conitinuum of the local businesses is good economics and social sustainability. We thank Karim for taking beyond his time to aquiant us with his home town and wish for more walking trips to meet real people that make the place.

Pri our guide was extremely knowledgeable having lived in Dubai for 12 years she was enthusiastic and friendly. The tour was well managed I felt I really learnt about the early years of Dubai. I was a solo traveller and I’ve booked again to take my family. Great value. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough.
Dubai is such a futuristic city and I love that but it was wonderful to be guided through part of the old town and the souks with Ricky. His enthusiasm for Dubai is infectious and it was a delightful couple of hours. Highly recommend this tour for a first visit to Dubai.
Explore Old Dubai on this walking tour. Starting in the Al Fahidi District, visit cultural landmarks such as Ruler’s Court, the Al Shindaga Watchtower, and Dubai Museum.

Abu Dhabi: Grand Mosque, Etihad Towers & Royal Palace Visit from Dubai
Great guide, good tour, optional lunch
, Feb 2020
Although this tour is a full-day, you only get to see three things. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Presidential Palace and Etihad Towers. Your admission ticket is included in your tour price to the Presidential Palace and Etihad Towers so there's good value, but you will not see the Louvre as there's no time. Our guide was excellent and explained everything in detail. He was also able to answer any questions.
The one "complaint" I have is the buffet they bring you to for lunch. This buffet is optional and the company is very transparent e.g. you pay 60 dirhams and the company gets a kickback of 15 dirhams. If you don't want the buffet you get dropped off at the marina mall for lunch of your choice. I feel like there's some wasted time here and it would be better to just let everyone get their own lunch at the mall.

Very interesting and well organised tour which we completed while on a cruise ship stop in Abu Dhabi. We were collected and returned to the cruise port. Imran was an excellent guide and gave us lots of information and encouraged us to ask questions. We enjoyed all the stops at the mosque, tower and the palace as well as some stops for photo opportunities, with plenty time at each location. We would highly recommend this tour.

Half-Day Small-Group Tour to Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Mosque from Dubai
, Jan 2020
We are very happy and pleased with this trip. The guide Zeeshan was so friendly and nice. He told us some interesting facts about the UAE and Abu Dhabi on the way there. Took pictures of us and all other members of the group in different beautiful spots inside. There was no rush during the visit, but still the length of the tour was perfect. It’s not exhausting, very interesting and beautiful. Highly recommended for all kinds of tourists. Also the group was really small, about 10 people which is very comfortable.
Great trip with an excellent guide, Maas Khan. He gave us «fast track» so we didnt use time to stand in line.... And was a great guide, lot of knowledge. Perfect to do this trip in the Afternoon so we could see the Mosque in different lights. I will recommend this trip to everyone coming to Dubai. And use this Company! Safe and professional.
An excellent tour for art and design enthusiasts, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a sort of “people’s mosque,” combining elements of many cultures including Turkish, Moroccan, Pakistani, Italian, and Egyptian architectural styles. Take your time exploring the peaceful grounds that feature floral mosaics, colossal domes, a reflective pool, and the world’s largest hand-woven carpet and chandelier.
We had limited time in Dubai so we did this morning tour, with hotel pick up and return. We got to see all the sites as listed, we had a private abra so we did not have to queue to cross the river. There is so much to see and we always seemed to have enough time to see what we wanted as well as to shop.

Learn about Dubai’s journey from traditional village to global city on a city tour, and discover landmarks including Zabeel Palace, the Spice Souk, and Burj Khalifa with insights provided by a local guide. Explore by foot, boat, and private vehicle for an immersive experience, and save time finding a meeting point with included pickup from your hotel.
The tour itself was really good, if you are only in Dubai for a couple of days this is great way to cover off a couple of the main attractions. The stop at the Burj Al Arab and Jumerieh beach was good and very simple, would have been good to point out bathrooms here. The overall organisation was a bit ropey, we had 31 in our group and the guide who was great had trouble keeping track of everyone.
The Spice Souk was the highlight for us, some of the shops staff are a little pushy and try the hard sell and it s very off putting, also in the Gold souk the hard sell is a lot to take including being offered the watches and fake bags.
Overall a great tour to do to see Dubai
