Good trip, nice tour guide and driver. He had lots of suitable information during the trip, about the history, current situation of the country, attractions and many more. Very nice trip and I recommend anybody that’s in Dubai to do the Abu Dhabi trip you won’t regret it!
Very good tour and term you have. nice guid ans service provided to all of us, pick-up and load-off on time even it's very hot day on that trip but orgnized with very good service, drinking water provided also.
It was nice to see a little bit of the surroundings outside of Dubai city. The full day trip to Abu Dhabi was perfect for a nice little education regarding the capital of the U.A.E. The Sheikh Sayed Grand Mosque is a must see. A brief stop at the Louvre of Abu Dhabi, Ferrari World , and Heritage museum is also included so there was plenty of photo ops along the way. Remarkable transformation from a desert bedouin tribal way of life to this ultra modern city in such a short period of time.
With limited time in the Emirates, I really wanted to see more of it. This trip provided that. While the sites were a little rushed, I understand that there was a lot to see and a very limited time. Our guide seemed genuinely interested in answering our questions, especially mine that veered quite off topic.
The Abu Dhabi Tour is full day tour, but well worth it. The country is so rich in culture and this tour covers a lot about the country. The most stunning part of the tour of the Grand Mosque. Loved It!!

Unfortunately, the guide was rude and dishonest with me but, the infrastructure (bus, restaurante and everything) was good and the BackOffice people were so nice and friendly too.
I just no had luck with the guide.

The tour is very compact, so if you only have one day, it's great. Most of the attractions will be only drive-bys or short photo stops. The highlight of the tour was the Grand Mosque, a very magnificent place of worship. We were given enough time to go inside, marvel, take photos of the mosque. Our guide Rafik was very knowledgeable and nice. As my family and I had to stay back in Abu Dhabi because our return flight was departing from Abu Dhabi airport that evening, he arranged for our tour's last stop to be at Ferrari World/Yas Mall so it would be convenient for us to hail a taxi from there.
Customer service is great. The confirmation of pick-up point had to be done through WhatsApp. When I messaged them to ask whether we could bring our luggage on the bus, they were very quick to respond and accommodate. We just paid USD 10 per suitcase. They also sent a lot of info prior to the tour, e.g. dress code, exact pick-up time.
