The tour was well planned and our tour guide, Mohammed, was exceptional. The tour of the Grand Mosque was something I always wanted to do, and it was worth the trip to see it.

The pick up from our hotel was right on time. The small bus was very clean and comfortable ( with excellent air conditioning). Our guide was a good communicator and our driver made quick time. Abu Dhabi is a city worth seeing, huge marble buildings with no expense spared. The mosque was swarming with tourists dressed in appropriate dress taking countless photos. It is such an amazing place of worship........ with sightseers. Likewise the palaces are massive buildings built without cost constraints. Views from the tower in the city show a city of wealth and rapid growth. They aim to be the biggest and best in the world. Thankfully our guide had a supply of cold bottled water to keep everyone hydrated. Overall it was a great your.

Mohammad Iqbal was our tour guide and did everything he could to make our tour comfortable and easy in the heat. We were fortunate to have transport to the Mosque rather than having to walk, which was very handy for my husband who does have arthritis. The views from the Etihad Tower were amazing, and the Presidential Palace breathtaking. We were fortunate to have a fairly traffic free journey. Would recommend this tour and guide to anyone.

What an incredible tour. Driver picked me up from hotel, and after everyone we went to Abu Dhabi. Our guide was very nice guide, very professional. On the way he not only told us about trip, but every major structure or event we've been passing. Firstly we arrived at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. It was breathtaking. Giant beautiful structure all in white. Our guide told us the story behind the mosque which was very interesting. Then we went to presidential palace which again was huge and very beautiful not only from outside, but also from inside. We also went for a dinner and we've been in top of etihad towers also, from where you can see the all abu dhabi from the sky. Absolutely amazing tour with an amazing guide.

we booked this tour because it stated pick up from our hotel, Movenpick Ibn Battuta, on the eve of the tour we were informed were informed we wouldn’t be picked up from our hotel, this was disappointing. However, apart from this one negative point we would highly recommend this daytrip, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the Emirates Palace were both magnificent and well worth seeing. The view from Etihad Towers was amazing as you have an uninterrupted view of the surrounding landscape. Our guide for the day Mohammad Iqbal was very helpful and knowledgeable, he was considerate of guests comfort and enjoyment at all times and kindly thank him for that. On returning to Dubai we were dropped off at our hotel - Movenpick Ibn Battuta. Jane DD

This tour was a great way to see Abu Dhabi. We hot all the major attractions there... the only bad thing is that we went to the Ferrari world too early so we couldn't really see anything there just a few pictures and that's it. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and staff friendly

Our guide, Mohammed Lqbal, was amazing. He did a great job with a lot of information dished out to a mixed group of 17. Pickup at our hotel was prompt, the small bus was comfortable. Mohammad is a wealth of knowledge and we would take another tour with him easily. The long dresses provided were lovely, but hot! Plenty of cold bottled water provided. It was Ramadan so not too crowded at the grand mosque. We thought the itinerary was perfect, got to see a lot in a few hours. had a lovely Arabic lunch as well- not expensive but in a nice mall. I’d recommend this tour if you want to see Abu Dhabi.

The Sheikh Zayed mosque was obviously the highlight but we also got to visit the Etihad Towers observation deck which was spectacular and way more chill than the Burj Khalifa. Haseeb our guide was amazing and so personable and took some great pictures! Real gem of a day.
