Ferrari World was superfluous for an older crowd. Gallery visit was unnecessary and items were overpriced. I suspect tour operator gets a cut. Driver was competent despite tailgating but not forthcoming with information or explanations. He was severely lacking as a guide Grand Mosque was extremely impressive.
Our experience to Abu Dhabi was very good .I would recommend only if you have the time to go as it is a very long day and a long drive there and back. We where in Dubai in October so the weather was hot but not as hot as other months . It gets hotter in Abu Dhabi so be prepared. Our pickup from our hotel was on time and we where dropped back. We went in a private SUV and I found it was good as the drive was quicker than a bus. There was only 3 of us so no waiting around for other passengers at each spot. Our guide was kind/funny and very knowledgeable. Worth the money.
Pick up 2 hours late.The actual tour was not so bad, slightly boring rushing around and getting in and out the car for photos. However, the tour guide did know what he was talking about and gave great insight into the history of Abu Dhabi and was good at answering any questions.
Just seemed to have spent nearly all day on a little mini bus that was not very comfy.
Because of taking 2 hours to pick people up some things were rushed - not a lot of time to have lunch plus didnt even have time to look at shops but then spent quite a bit of time at date market with not a lot else to do.
Have to say the mosque was fantastic and worth a visit.
Didnt know our drivers name - he did talk about things but couldnt hear him very well. We did complain at one point about not really having time to do things etc and needing time to have drinks etc - even though it did say water would be supplied during day got one bottle at end of trip. We were told things had to be adjusted because of how long taken to pick people up!
As say just felt like sat on mini bus all day ended up with numb bums!!!!
Other trips may be better and more organised with picking people up - So may get more time in certain areas.
