Traveler Tips

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.

Timely pickup at the hotel, friendly and experienced driver/guide, tasteful lunch stop and above all the visit to the mosk, one of the most beautiful buildings I ever visited.

Immaculately Beautiful
Kadijat_D, Feb 2024
The mosque, unbelievably beautiful with huge space that would hold 40,000 people in one sitting according to the advisor, the surrounding space is exceptionally clean, we can see our face on the floor, it’s like mirror. This mosque is immaculately smashing, nothing compares to this mosque for me. I would visit again whenever I come back to Dubai.

Wanderful one day trip to Abu Dabi
Rafal_K, Feb 2024

Avoid this company
elizabeth_s, Feb 2024
Not as expected. SUV showed up with 4 passengers leaving us to squeeze in a small 3 Row seat for an hour and a half ride each way. While they did get us different car for the return trip, the driver was too fast (85+ miles per hr) for the unsafe worn front tire and TPS light on. The stops to a rug seller, date vegetable stand and the ferrari amusement park was a total waste of time putting us back to the hotel at 730pm - the Dubai city traffic took an hour alone. Skip this company - RAH tours.
The mosque was amazing. I...
Nayna_L, Feb 2024
The mosque was amazing. I wish we could have more time there. The museum was ok this could have been skipped. Everything else was wonderful. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative.
It was fun.
Gnanesh_S, Feb 2024
Nice people sharing this trip and nice driver (Aleem) explaining history and background which made trip interesting.
Loved this trip
JadeShanna_E, Jan 2024
Our tour guide Sarim was very informative and messaged the evening before regarding our pick up time. Our trip was amazing I loved every moment, highly recommend 😊
Dissappointing excursion
Lana_R, Jan 2024
Although Ali was a very good guide we were dissappointed in the event. To much time wasted in long queues at the Mosque. Items mentioned on the itinerary were seen in passing it by from sitting cramped up in a Fortuner. A minibus would have been a much better and comfortable vehicle. I for instance could not even take pictures of the Palace. It was mentioned a visit to Ferrari World, our dissappointment was massive to discover that it was actually a 20minute visit to a shopping mall and entertainment/amusenent park!
Good day in Abi Dhabi
Angela_F, Jan 2024
The mosque was the most memorable as it is absolutely breathtaking. The mall was also nice but not enough time. I would have liked you have had time to explore Ferrari World. The buffet lunch was tasty and plentiful. The price was good too. Overall it was a good tour.
Very long day trip
Keito_R, Jan 2024
The entire length of the tour with hotel pick-up and drop-off is 12.5 hours. The Grand Mosque was the only thing to see during the entire tour, otherwise a typical shopping tour. Only for the mosque it is reasonable to go by local bus + taxi. Visiting the mosque is free, if possible go before sunset - it's also beautiful when the lights come on.
Average Tour
Andrew_X, Dec 2023
The biggest issue for us was the pre-trip communication. There wasn’t any at all. I contacted the tour company on the morning of the trip to confirm the time, and we got a notification 10mins prior to the actual pick-up. The actual bus tour is average, I was hoping the guide can explain more on the trip…
Good for one time try
SenthilMurugan_B, Dec 2023
Overall the trip is just okay. It was whole day trip. Driver Mr.Zar Mohammed is good man. Accommodative and friendly. Out of 8 places, three places were worth. Rest all just okok. Please carry plastic bags, paracetamols, cap. You may need it. Because we all got a headache…
I would recommend this tour to everyone
Anuradha_N, Dec 2023
We enjoyed our trip tremendously.Our guide was Bilal & he was superb.He was very professional & gave appropriate information about all the tourist sites. Very respectful and patient individual. The sequence of tour was very well thought out. We covered all the places on the list. Well worth it.
Efrain_M, Dec 2023
If I could give 0 stars I would, they were late at communicating travel plans. They were unprofessional and hard to reach. Do not book with them!!! Still waiting to get my money back from Viator as I never went on the trip.
Terrible Service & Rude driver
BadrulHisham_M, Dec 2023
Driver Umair, was very rude treated us like a small kid. Scolded us for being late for mere 10 minutes just because we urgently needed to go to the toilet and do our Zuhur prayers. Didn’t brief us beforehand and expect us to know that he can’t wait. He should know that we are paying customers and we that we didn’t go on this tour for free. Definitely would not recommend RAH tours to anyone. RAH tour should educate their drivers to be more compassionate and polite to customers. Terrible service.
Don't bother
Jill_L, Dec 2023
Wasn't a guided tour. Just a driver who dropped you off at various places without history or explanation of importance to what you were seeing. Thought it would just be our group but others were included. Picked up late and got back late. Would not recommend this tour.
Dubai Aquarium and Day trip to Abu Dhabi
Margaret_A, Dec 2023
A memorable experience, with a very patient and responsive team. Thanks for the good work. Wishing you success in your endeavours Thanks so much
Not recommended
Yasin_B, Dec 2023
Our guide was rude and we spent half of the journey about having 4 wives. We have been taken to a place called “Islamic Arts Museum” which turned out to be a simple gallery, where they were trying to sell us so called golden carpets, “Voltaire” brand watches and stuff. They were even selling luggages and sun glasses in the gallery. It was a complete waste of time. We were a group of 7 and we were all bored by the end of the trip. When we were visiting the Ferrari Land, we were told that we can’t enter to enjoy the rollercoasters. We did hang out in the shopping mall for 50 mins.
Day Trip to Abu Dhabi
Elly_K, Nov 2023
Our guide Aleem was very knowledgeable & entertaining at the same time. The lunch buffet recommended was super delicious. We especially enjoyed visiting the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. It was worth making the trip to Abu Dhabi.
Sunny on Sunny day
