Our trip to Abu Dhabi was very informative and fun! Our driver Aleem took his time to explain the many historic sites we passed by along the way as well as the stops we made. Aleem has a great sense of humor and made our trip comfortable and funny at the same time!

The visit to the mosque was breath taking as was the visit to Emirates Palace hotel - both fantastic. The tour guide, Alyas Afridi was very help and injected many interesting facts are the tour progressed.

The car was so small we didnt fit in! So we had to remain in Dubai. SUV with 2 small seats in the back is good only for children, not adults😤😤😤
Must visit

The grand mosque is spectacular. Women are required to cover their hair so i suggest to bring shawl when visiting the mosque.
Great to see the Mosque and the city in a car
Ambar_V, Feb 2024
The mosque was amazing and the only part of the tour that makes sense.the other stops were to sell us carpets and to stop and take pictures. The Ferrari World, is a theme park and you only get half an hour which is technically good to use the bathroom only as is inside the mall.

The mosque is magical . I like the gold and the stone on the carpet. The dinner table made with elephant bone was so unreal at the museum.
Great host

Our host Afzan was brilliant from start to finish. For the price and what you get is worth it. Was a long day but a great way to see Abu Dhabi main spots.
Abu Dhabi in a day from Dubai

Good day trip to Abu Dhabi, our guide was Ali and he made the trip interesting and looked after everyone well. It's a bit of a whistle stop around various site but it is a full day and if you just want to see the area it's a good trip to take. The negatives were we were picked up with a 4x4 with small seats at the back to hold 6 people, unfortunately for me with hip issues it wasn't a great experience getting in and out and if you are old or have any issues like me with movement you're going to struggle. Additionally as we were at the back you couldn't hear what Ali was saying so I'd recommend them to get some audio in the vehicle so you can hear things. Otherwise it was a good trip and very reasonable compared to others, so I'd recommend it.
Highly recommend

We visited lots of places as listed in the advert. Had company of people from different parts of the world and everyone got on well with eachother. Driver Abdul was very friendly and accommodating. He listened to his customers, gave us information about the area, landmarks and buildings we visited. There were long queues in the mosque which wasted our time but we went on a Saturday and 15-20 thousand people visited that day.
Full day of new sights and experiences.

Mosque tour and lunch stop to eat authentic regional food. The tour guide was informative, answered all questions and the tour size of 6 was perfect.
Mixed views, but you get what you pay for.
Daniel_H, Feb 2024
We had just wanted a taster visit to Abu Dhabi with the Sheik Zayed mosque being the main thing we wanted to see. And it doesn't disapoint. However there were some negatives. We had a 4x4 car as transport and apart from being cramped, it wasn't easy to get in and out of. The first stop after the mosque was an art gallery where we were rushed through by an extremely rude man who woukd only show us areas where there were things to buy. There was some lovely art there but we were not allowed to look at it because it dudnt suit this man's agenda. The heritage village is pleasant and there was a nice beach to walk along. The stop at Ferrari World seemed pointless as we didn't go in and instead there was just a ferrari retailer and a mall. We didn't stop at the Presidential Palace and this should be removed from the itinerary as there us ko opportunity to take photos. All in all, if you want something more comprehensive go for a more expensive option. The £29 tour is worth it just for the mosque but many if the other items on this itinerary we woukd happily have skipped. Thanks.

Arslan was an excellent guide throughout our day trip. He drove safely and told us some interesting trivia about the sights along the way. If you only have 1 day to visit Abu Dhabi this day trip is well worth it. All the best, Adam

A Must Do Activity
Tarsha_H, Jan 2024
It was the most beautiful building I have ever seen. The intricate details are breathtaking. The complete tour is rather long and draining. Beware, one stop is not really part of the tour. It's to a carpet and jewelry store where they try to sell you over priced merchandise.
A wonderful day, an extraordinary tour
Ayhan_S, Jan 2024
