I was a bit nervous since it was my first trip to Dubai but the travel guide and the driver was excellent. From the pickup to advise on how to dress properly to the mosque. We had a memorable time. It's worth the private tour to accommodate our plans. Will def recommend this tour .
We had a great time and our guide was amazing. Well worth while taking this tour.
Highlight was the Grand Mosque which is now one of the wonders of the world. Emirates Palace was also a wonderful structure and worth visiting. The driver came on time , vehicle was clean and comfortabl. The driver was very good , well informed about the history, culture of Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Very happy !!! First time booked my trip with Viator and had a very good experience. Looking for another trip with you.
excellent guide. took us all over the city. explained everthing we saw
The tour was very good and recommend it highly. We were not disappointed. Our tour guide was very professional and gave us personal care.
We loved the guide - he was very patient and let us take our time as we visited the mosque and other tourist attractions in Dubai.
A great tour. Our guide was off the hook good. He was so patience and his knowledge was super. He loved to take our pictures and knew the best spots. We got to the Mosque early and missed the huge bus groups with lots of cameras.
Lunch was at a mall and we really toured the all of Abu Dhabi. This is a MUST do tour.
This was a very good trip. The driver and guide were very pleasant and obliging. We were taken everywhere we wanted to go and nowhere we did not. We requested a visit to Masdar which was not on the original itinerary but was organised for us especially. Mehul the guide has a good sense of humour and we felt very comfortable with him.
Well worth the drive from Dubai. This mosque is BEAUTIFUL. Our guide was great and accommodated us graciously. We had a great time!

This was an amazing day! Our tour guide Malik was VERY knowledgeable and passionate about his work. Which lead to a wealth of knowledge not only about Abu Dhabi, but UAE and the gulf region. I STRONGLY recommend doing the private tour as you learn more and can structure the trip the way you want.
Excellent. Our guide was articulate and had an excellent command of the English language. Most important of all his knowledge of history, culture and religion were impressive. He was anxious to share his knowledge and welcomed our questions. He and his drivr were courteous, opening car doors for us and conerned about our comfort.
The guide/driver was on time and very pleasant. Although Malik our guide talked a lot he was passionate about the history.
A must do! If your only time in the UAE is in Dubai, this excursion offers an interesting glimpse into the capitol of the Emirates. The main highlight is visiting the mosque which is well worth your time. Our guide Yassar, and the tour team, without question made the trip for us. He was informative, engaging and funny. Due to cultural expectancies, what you wear on this trip is extremely important. Ladies, clothes to the wrist and ankles required with no transparency. Scarves or fabric to cover the head and shoulders as well required. Men, shorts ok but they must cover to below the knee. We were lucky in that Yassar took extreme care in how we looked before we left our hotel which allowed us all to make modifications before starting the tour. We must confess, his help in stylishly tying our headwear was most impressive! Do note that the amount of walking to / from the car park is sizable. By design, this tour is fantastic for small groups as considerations are made in route to accommodate interests and/or needs. Our groups is multi-generational and we appreciated the ability to skip the amusement part. It helped that Yassar was able to get us into the exclusive Emirates Palace hotel for a walkabout! Talk about AMAZING! Through Yassar, we learned a great deal about the history of the Emirates. The visit to the Historical Village offers a phenomenal view into the investment and development that has been made over a short period of time. Lunch at the restaurant in the village is truly worthwhile. Very authentic and tasty!
Our guide Norman was excellent and provided answers to our many questions. Liked all sites we visited but especially the museum dedicated to Sheik Zayed.
Very convenient private tour, from/to the hotel with driver and guide, very good both of them
Amazing experience. Women, make sure you know that you have to be totally covered up. The mosque was beautiful and our tour guide, Daniela, made sure to let us know before we left our hotel that we needed to have sweaters and head scarfs. Tour was worth every dime.
This was a great tour. Mr.Malik and the driver were the best. On the drive from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, Mr. Malik told us the history of the area and intelligently answered any questions we had. The Grand Mosque is such a beautiful edifice! I am not Muslim, but the people and atmosphere at the Mosque demands my respect. We had a nice visit at the Heritage Village and the Shiekh Zayed Museum. I would take this tour again and highly recommend Mr. Malik.
This tour was absolutely worth every penny. Our driver Kotu and guide Malik gave us the royal treatment and kept us laughing. Malik was very knowledgable and knew everything about Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I don't know how he keeps all of that history in his head lol. This is a must do, while others are in large groups at the various sites, you get personalized attention and access.
Very good tour with a nice lunch at the top of a skyscraper where we could look over the entire city. We had the best Quiche Lorraine that I've had in a long time. The Grand Mosque is beautiful be sure to wear a long sleeved shirt and pants or a skirt that cover your ankles as well as a scarf to cover your head. The guards are very nice to visitors but very strict about the dress code. The Heritage Village is very nice however go to the bathroom before or after you go!
Perfect tour - thanks to our guide who knew everything worth knowing.
