Excellent tour - knowledgable guide and we throughly enjoyed everything other than visits to carpet outlets
A excellent guide who explained every detail of the Mosque. Recommend.
Tour was great. Mosque unbelievable. Unfortunately, we did not see the any gold souk. Either the driver was suspect or else the advertising was suspect. Very disappointing as I was hoping to pick some some whilst there.
Truly amazing experience! Wear light loose clothing ladies that cover your arms and legs. No tank tops, shorts, see through or tight clothing. I wore linen pants, sandals and a shirt with a light jacket.
Perfect morning trip v well priced - great to see the Mosque - then saw smart local crafts, heritage museum and dates shop!
Just what I wanted.
The Mosque is the most beautiful building we had ever seen. Great tour.
Great tour. Tour guide Anne was lovely and knew her stuff. We saw and learned about lots of Abu Dhabi and the Sheik Zayed Mosque was amazing.
The trip was great! The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He had a great deal of local information and lots of background information on the area. I would absolutely do another trip with Viator.
Really good tour. Informative and thorough. One of the few tours in Abu Dhabi / Dubai I would recommend. Guide was pleasant and the Mosque was absolutely beautiful. A must see.
The tour was good and gave me an overall view of Abu Dhabi in one single morning. I toured around Abu Dhabi inside a comfortable minivan with the guide and another couple of tourists. The guide was informative and very friendly. The first stop was at the Zayed Mosque, where we were given 40 minutes to tour around at our pace. Then we visited a date market, where we were given free samples to try. Unfortunately, the day I took the tour the heritage museum was closed due to a religious holiday. When travelling around the city to go to our destinations, the guide gave us plenty of information about the areas we were passing through and the surrounding buildings. I would definitively recommend this tour.
Our tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and the Mosque was a must see along with the other sites.
Very enjoyable tour of the city highlights. Sheik Zayed Mosque was amazing! Heritage Village quite interesting. A little disappointed that instead of being taken to a gold souk we were instead taken to a shop selling handmade carpets. Generally a good tour with an English-speaking guide who had a wealth of information and knowledge to share.
The tour overall was good. One let down was the fact that one of the other tourists in our group had inappropiate clothes and we lost approx.20 mins waiting outise the mosque - I understand this is not the companys fault but maybe the driver should have carried an extra long t-shirt with him as he did pre-empt this could happen. We were also taken to a shop were they tried to hard-sell carpets this stop seemed a bit needless and off. Even though I booked an english speaking tour, half the time the guide spoke german. The driver which picked me up and dropped me off was very friendly and courteous. The transition from private pick up to joining and leaving the tour group was very smooth which was great.
Really Great tour. Anne was very thorough and knowledgeable. She also offer suggestions about what to do after the tour. Like other people I did wish we could spend more time at the Mosque but that is normal with any tour.
The Sheik Zayed Mosque is really worth to have a visit. It's a piece of treasure contributed by artist from all over the world. Heritage Village is quite small, which finished review within no more than 30 minutes.
The guide was nice and the Mosque amazing. The Heritage Village and the Gold Souk were disappointing.
Mosque beautiful but stopped at an Arts Centre and a date shop which took over an hour so only had twenty minutes in the heritage centre and no separate souk just told to look at the one in the heritage village
Good to see the beautiful mosque but the rest was disappointing. The heritage village was nothing special and the gold souk was not part of the tour - was taken to an expensive store selling carpets, wall art and scarves. Sorry I wasted my money.
Nothing special. Just visited three sites and narration was just that the I could have read in my travel book. Tour ok for those that would not tour without a tour guide.
The Grand Zayed Mosque was very beautiful and definately worth seeing, though the Heritage Village was a little bit of a let down and the Gold Souk was fairly uninteresting.
Mosque fantastic, just disappointed our tour was varied from that advertised, without advice. For some reason we were taken to see an exhibition of what's coming to Saadiyat Island in the future, instead of the visit to the Gold Souk and dates market as per the itinerary we booked. I don't know if this is normal, but I'd prefer to get what I've paid for, or at least the courtesy of an explanation,
the guide was very nice and flexible. the guide is not a professional guide and as a consequence the explanations are brief and superficial.
The tour of the Grand Mosque was a great experience, however we thought that a stop at the Gold Souk was included as well. Instead we were taken to a Dates Market, and when we asked about the gold souk the tour guide said we didn't have enough time. He dropped us off at the Souk and left us to take a taxi back to our hotel.
