Grand Mosque stole the tour. Absolutely stunning. Very very hot weather in June glad of aircon. Driver was excellent.
Great 4 hour drive around Abu Dhabi. We arrived later in the evening when most things had already closed down, but got a good tour of the city highlights with a quick stop at the Mosque before it closed. Driver was at the designated meeting point, was professional, and very friendly. The quick city tour was a great way to spend part of our 7 hour layover. Easy to leave the airport and easy to get back in for our departing flight. Highly recommend this tour!
Very good tour with a nice driver and guide. It was late in the evening, but our guide did his best to take us into Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. We could visit this marvellous mosque in the very last minute before closing. Thank you
The guide met us at the premier inn at Abu Dhabi airport . We had a very late flight in and needed to be back in the airport by midnight . He was absolutely lovely , very knowledgable and accommodating . Was lovely to see a little bit of the city on out stop over . If you only have a couple of hours and are looking for a whistle stop tour of Abu Dhabi I highly recommend this tour . Thanks - Angie
