Visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Heritage Village, and Abu Dhabi Corniche
I would not recommend this tour to anyone. There was no information given about the most beautiful Grand Mosque. I don’t know when it was built. I don’t know who it was built for, or if it was built for anyone or to honor anyone. We were whisked by the royal residences. We did not tour the downtown areas of Abu Dhabi. We spent almost 1 1/2 hours in a carpet establishment which no one in our group appreciated. We had lunch at a buffet restaurant across the canal from the old palace. Why didn’t we go to the old palace just to see the lobby at least? The food st the restaurant was nothing special. We had no time to experience Abu Dhabi. Oh we went to the Ferrari Mall. Why? We had absolutely no interest in a mall let alone a Ferrari mall? No spice market. No cultural center. No museum. No history of Abu Dhabi. As I sit here writing this I realize I know absolutely NOTHING about Abu Dhabi except it has the largest most beautiful mosque I’ve ever seen.
This tour was a total waste of my vacation time and money.
Van trip for 10 from Marriott Marques, Dubai to Abu Dhabi tour. Did not appreciate the unexpected exposure to the high pressure CARPET VENDER tour stop. The time devoted to this high pressure sales should have been spent on other sights.
Our tour guide was fun and we had a great experience. Abu Dhabi is fascinating, and I had no idea there was such a thing as Ferrari World. This was a good day trip to see some highlights with a multinational group of tourists. The people on the tour were quite interesting.
