If you are on a time crunch, this is a great tour! This is a short tour but it is well worth doing. Our tour guide Riah did a nice job and was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend as this was one of my highlights of my trip
One of the most impressive structures in the world.

Our tour of the mosque occurred on a Friday in July, after the mosque had been closed until 4:30 for prayers. When we got there at 5:30 there were many other people there, but perhaps not as many as there would have been if this had been a regular visiting day. I would highly recommend the visit in the evening because by the time the visit is winding up, you will benefit from the golden light of sunset and best opportunities of reflection photos on the pools just after sunset. The tour was great, with about half of the time there with the guide (who assisted with many photo-ops) and about half the time on our own, which was perfect.
From pick up to drop off, well worth the money. Or guide was great- very informative, and friendly.
The drive passed by very quickly and the bus was comfortable enough for the relatively short ride.
The Grand Mosque itself is stunning, with the white marble and gold.
Glad we took the time to visit.
The place is impressive to be in. Our guide Osama was kind hearted and knew a lot about the culture and the place. Also he made the ride to the mosque entertaining. Hope we passed your quiz 😁. Thanks for your guiding , drinks and of course the chocolates . All well organised with heads up upfront as well.
We were pickup on time in the morning. The drive to Abu Dhabi on the tour bus was 1hr.&15mins. Our gentleman tour guide was very nice, well educated about the history of Abu Dhabi & Dubai and was patience with the group. The Mosque was amazing, huge and clean. We took a lot of pictures, got a chance to Pray and visit the grace site of the President. I would definitely recommend this tour company.
Guide really knew so much history and information about UAE. Great tour and beautiful buildings. I would look into the private tour so you can get closer in the mosque. The tour provides beautiful abayas for you to wear.
