  • Rating: 4 “A Fine Tour”

    Reviewed by Helen from North York, Canada on July 25th, 2014 The tour guide was punctual. He gave us lots of information about the Grandn Mosque and other attractions.

  • Rating: 4 “Good trip”

    Reviewed by Roy from Auckland, New Zealand on June 1st, 2014 Good trip with must see Mosque. Early start with long pick up time around hotels in mini bus before joining coach, mainly because of traffic. Once clear of city and return no problem. Good value for price.

  • Rating: 1 “I just could not enter to the mosque.. the only interest of the tour”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Champs sur Marne, France on May 19th, 2014 I was recommended by a friend to visit the mosque with this tour. As you are advised to go inside the Abu Dhabi mosque properly dressed, my friend told me that abayas will be lent to cover ourselves. Once arrived, our guide told us that it was not possible to get an abaya to cover ourselves and that we could not enter to the mosque, the only reason we went for for this tour... We were 3 women, wearing long pants or long dress, head covered by a scarf, but half arms and hand uncovered. We could not go in..... What a deception.... and no solution could be found by the guide or anyone else, just a prompt NO (no possibility to get an abaya, no possibility to buy one, no extra cardigans to be lend...)..... I just lost money for nothing as the rest of the tour was boring and not interesting at all...

    For the following women who wxill make this tour: be dressed from head to toe with long sleeves, long pants, scarf or even, more better an abaya.

    I won't recommend this tour for sure.

  • Rating: 4 “A good program with a good guide - with room for improvements”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Nivaa, Denmark on March 27th, 2014 The program was good and the guide gave many useful informations.
    Maybe the stays could be longer - at expense of the short photo-breaks. And I think the Heritage Village should be omitted - maybe replaced by Ferrari City.
    The pickup of people in different places takes much too long time. I would prefer a common meeting place - for this case Battuta Metro station would be an option.

  • Rating: 5 “fantastic”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from ferntree gully, Australia on March 19th, 2014 We were more than happy with trip, but the changeover with buses and late passengers could have been faster,

  • Rating: 5 “Exelent”

    Reviewed by Iliyana from Leicester, United Kingdom on January 10th, 2014 Very nice, the experience was very good , Exelent.

  • Rating: 4 “Seen a lot in shortest possible time!”

    Reviewed by Ann Marie from Veberöd, Sweden on January 9th, 2014 Sometimes felt like the most important thing was making pictures, not experience.

  • Rating: 5 “Excellent excursion, with knowledgeable guide”

    Reviewed by Gilles from St-Sauveur,, Canada on December 11th, 2013 Visit of the Mosque was very interesting. Comments on the way out and back very interesting.

  • Rating: 4 “Pleasant experience”

    Reviewed by Violina from Sofia, Bulgaria on December 11th, 2013 Pleasant and informative trip

  • Rating: 3 “Advertised as a full day's tour Left at 8.00am returned by 3.00pm”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Kirkcaldy, United Kingdom on October 26th, 2013 Tour was worth going on the trip to see the mosque but everywhere else we were taken to was just rushed, only given 30mins at next 2 stops , no time given to look around the places by ourselves. Left Abu Dhabi immediately after lunch which was at a shopping mall would of been nice to of had time to look around it.
    It was not as if we were going to return late as we were back in Dubai at 3.00pm.


    Reviewed by Emily from ORLANDO, United States on September 24th, 2013 ORIENT TOURS were very hospitable, accommodating and very informative. Their Bus was clean and in good condition. They are very timely. The Driver and Guide were very professional. They took us to all of the scheduled activities especially the Sheikh Zayed Mosque-the third largest mosque in the world.

    I highly recommend booking all your tours with GET-YOUR-GUIDE as one can feel safe and secured, as it is like home away from home. The Representatives of these tours welcome you warmly and the security is that if one encounters difficulties, one can always go back to GET-YOUR-GUIDE to solve the problems.

  • Rating: 4 “Lovely tour, fantastic mosque in Abu Dhabi”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Köln, Germany on May 11th, 2013 I mainly booked the tour because although my hotel was in Dubai, I really wanted to see the mosque in Abu Dhabi. We were picked up from the hotel right on time (around 6:30 am), but unfortunately we then had to drive through Dubai for almost 2 hours so we could pick up all the other guests, since my hotel was the first one we stopped at. The Sri Lankan tour guide was very nice and spoke German well. After we had left Dubai, we stopped briefly at a gas station that had a few cafes and a grocery store next to it, so we could buy something. Then we went straight to the mosque, where they handed out Abayas (black capes) to the female participants, since in the mosque your hair, arms and legs need to be covered. We had a little over an hour to visit the mosque, and that was enough time to look around, the mosque was very impressive and worth seeing. We also visited Sheikh Zayed Museum and Heritage Village. We were back in Dubai around 5 pm

  • Rating: 4 “Abu Dhabi isn't Dubai”

    Reviewed by Gordon from Berlin, Germany on October 8th, 2012 We really enjoyed the tour. However we have to say that Dubai is the more impressive city of the two. The day was also quite a long one, and considering the temperatures there we wouldn't take this tour again. But we definitely learned a great deal and had fun. By the way the pickup from Ras Al Khaimah went wonderfully.

  • Rating: 1 “This Abu Dhabi City Tour wasn't worth the money and wasn't very informative”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Dreieich, Germany on April 11th, 2012 We got picked up from the hotel on time and without any issues. Unfortunately the tour itself was a total fail. It wasn't really a city tour of Abu Dhabi but rather a shuttle bus service with 3 stops, during which you have about an hour of free time to explore. We got barely any information about the city, and it definitely wasn't worth the price. The tour was supposed to take 8 hours but ended up taking less than 5.

  • Rating: 4 “recommended at the beginning of a trip”

    Reviewed by Simona from Zürich, Switzerland on December 25th, 2011 beautiful mosque, good to get an overview of the city

  • Rating: 5 “Well organised”

    Reviewed by Dietmar from Gröbenzell, Germany on December 6th, 2011 it was easy to make reservations and well organised by the promoters(They even informed us there would be a 15 minute delay the day before)

  • Rating: 5 “Nice excursion with a friendly team – a full five stars.”

    Reviewed by Nicolas from Fürth, Germany on June 18th, 2011 Pick-up was punctual. The minibus (7 participants) was always on standby with driver and air conditioning (it was 45°C outside). Our guide actually spoke German (he'd lived in Munich for four years as a student), so we learned much about the local culture. The program was as described. We were very satisfied and were always treated friendly. Excellent – hence the five stars.

  • Rating: 5 “Super schöner Ausflug”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Schkeuditz, Germany on October 8th, 2014 Alles super, toller Reiseleiter . Auf jeden fall zu empfehlen. Vielen dank.

  • Rating: 3 “zu große Reisegruppe”

    Reviewed by Kerstin from Laußig, Germany on September 22nd, 2014 Eine Reisegruppe von 42 Personen ist eindeutig zu groß. Wir waren im Urlaub in Abu Dhabi und wurden dann mit der Gruppe von Dubai zusammengelegt.

  • Rating: 3 “Sonnen- und Schattenseite!”

    Reviewed by Selina from Durmersheim, Germany on September 19th, 2014 Wir sollten um 09:15 Uhr abgeholt werden. Aber die Tour bekann für uns leider erst um 11:00 Uhr! Die Plätze die angefahren wedern sind toll. Aber es müsste zeitlich besser organisiert sein!

  • Rating: 4 “Allein die Besichtigung der Moschee war den Ausflug wert.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Weißensberg, Germany on September 18th, 2014 Hatten diese Sightseeing Tour von Dubai aus gebucht, um auch ein wenig von Abu Dhabi sehen zu können. Ein großes Lob geht hier an Orient Tours, die die Tour super organisiert hatten. Wurden vorher per Mail über unsere genaue Abholzeit informiert und bevor es in den Bus ging, hat die Reiseleiterin noch überprüft, ob alle die richtige Kleidung für die Moschee dabei haben. (In der Moschee werden keine Abayas mehr ausgeteilt, daher ist es wichtig passende Kleidung anzuhaben. Die Kontrollen sind wirklich streng!)
    Die Moschee selbst war wunderschön!!!
    In anderen Bewertungen steht bereits, dass man sehr viel im Bus sitzt. Da kann ich mich nur anschließen. Allerdings erzählt die Reiseleiterin während der Fahrt immer sehr viel interessantes über die VAE und die Emirati selbst, dass man die lange Zeit im Bus nicht als störend betrachtet. Man bekommt einen kleinen Einblick in das Land und das ist wirklich spannend.
    Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis stimmt!!

  • Rating: 4 “Schönes Ausflugsziel”

    Reviewed by Jennifer from Zürich, Switzerland on July 11th, 2014 Von der Stadt hat man zu wenig gesehen. Es waren drei nette Anlaufpunkte aber wir waren fast nur im Bus. Ich hätte gern noch ne Zeit in der Stadt selbst verbracht

  • Rating: 4 “Hat alles geklappt wie angekündigt!!!”

    Reviewed by Frank from Flensburg, Germany on June 18th, 2014 Netter Service,
    Ich wurde am Abend vorher nochmal über die aktuelle Abholzeit informiert.
    Reiseführer konnte ein gutes Deutsch sprechen.

  • Rating: 3 “Die Mosche ein Traum alles andere kann man sich sparen”

    Reviewed by Robert from München, Germany on May 27th, 2014 die Mosche muss man sehen, Palast ist nur von weit weg zu sehen und von Ferrari World nur die Umzäunung

  • Rating: 4 “schön aber stressig”

    Reviewed by Jens from Regensburg, Germany on May 23rd, 2014 Alles in allem zu empfehlen ,die Abholung war über pünktlich 20 min. eher als vereinbart, dafür dann eine halbe Stunde auf andere Teilnehmer gewartet, die Fahrt nach Abu Dabei war schön, der Reiseleiter erklärte sehr viel,für die Besichtigungen der einzelnen Sehenswürdigkeiten war genug Zeit.

  • Rating: 5 “hervorragende Organisation”

    Reviewed by Christine from Hamburg, Germany on May 5th, 2014 Viele Informationen durch den stets bemühten Reiseleiter Simon

  • Rating: 5 “Nette und informative Reiserute”

    Reviewed by Christoph from Wuppertal, Germany on April 23rd, 2014 Sehr lockere und informative Rundreise durch Abu Dhabi. Genügend Zeit um sich Höhepunkte anzusehen. Sehr pünktliche Abholung vom Hotel, gute deutschsprachige Reiseleitung

  • Rating: 4 “Schöner Überblick der sehenswerten Plätze”

    Reviewed by Harald from wien, Austria on March 21st, 2014 Die Tour was ok, die Moschee beeindruckend. Der Hinweis auf den Tower in der Marina Mall hat gefehlt, sollte man unbedingt wahrnehmen. Toller Überblick über Abu Dhabi.

  • Rating: 4 “Empfehlenswerter Tagesausflug”

    Reviewed by Nadia from St. Margrethen, Switzerland on March 8th, 2014 Abholung hat super geklappt, unser Guide hat in nahezu perfektem Englisch und Deutsch alles sehr gut erklärt und viele Infos abgegeben. Die Moschee ist mega imposant und unbedingt einen Besuch wert. Frauen: vergisst nicht, einen Pulli oder Jacke mitzunehmen sowie ein Kopftuch, andernfalls wird euch der Eintritt verweigert! Heritage Village ist ebenfalls interessant, in der Marina Mall haben wir zu Mittag gegessen und schliesslich gabs auch noch einen kurzen Foto-Stopp bei Ferrari World.

  • Rating: 3 “Good trip, but moderate service”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Delfgauw, Netherlands on February 28th, 2014 Good trip to see highlights of Abu Dhabi. However, the driver was terrible and the guide left the bus before The trip was completed.
