  • 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: 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.

  • Rating: 5 “Super Trip”

    Reviewed by Boschra from Hamburg, Germany on February 16th, 2014 Wir haben viele Stops gemacht um Fotos zu machen. Die sheikh zayed Moschee angeschaut. Die Moschee war atemberaubend. Dagegen ist das Taj mahal eine armeise. Die Tour würde ich auf jeden fall wiederholen !!

  • Rating: 3 “alles etwas stressig zu wenig Zeit für alles”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Rüsselsheim, Germany on January 23rd, 2014 Ich würde diese Tour auf eigene Faust machen wollen um mehr Zeit für alles zu haben

  • Rating: 4 “Für's erste Mal in Abu Dhabi genau die richtige Tour.”

    Reviewed by Rene from Schacksdorf, Germany on January 22nd, 2014 Auf dieser Tour lernt man die Highlights von Abu Dhabi kennen.
    Für jemanden, der diese Stadt zum ersten Mal besucht, ist dieser Ausflug genau richtig.
    So bekommt man Lust auf mehr - man sieht aber auch ein, dass eine Tagestour von Dubai aus nicht wirklich ausreicht, um alles ausgiebig zu erkunden.
    Aber wie gesagt, ich sehe diese Tour eher als einen Ersteindruck dieser Stadt.
    Die Abholzeit (06:30 Uhr) war wohl etwas optimistisch festgelegt. Trotz vorheriger Nachfrage bestand man bei Orient Tours (dem ausführenden Veranstalter) auf 06:30 Uhr - um dann knapp 1 Stunde später am Hotel zu erscheinen...
    Abgesehen davon war es ein perfekter Tag!

  • Rating: 4 “Super, muss man gesehen haben.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Oberdolling, Germany on November 15th, 2013 Sehr angenehme Tour.

  • Rating: 3 “Einfache Möglichkeit die Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque zu besichtigen.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Herne, Germany on November 1st, 2013 Wichtigster Punkt dieser Tour war die Besichtigung der Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Dieses beeindruckende Bauwerk ist diese Tour wert. Die weiteren Besichtigungspunkte in Abu Dhabi waren weniger interessant. Telefonische Absprache (Abfahrtszeitpunkt) und Durchführung der Tour waren einwandfrei. Wir haben uns mit dem Guide darauf verständigt, dass wir auf die deutsche Übersetzung verzichten und mit der englischen Beschreibung zufrieden sind.

  • Rating: 4 “Gut organisiert, pünktlich, sicher und informativ”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Falkensee, Germany on August 22nd, 2013 Würde wieder diese Tour buchen - einsprachig wäre vom Zeitfaktor noch informativer

  • Rating: 4 “interessante Reise mit vielen Informationen”

    Reviewed by Thomas from Grafenau, Germany on June 1st, 2013 Informative Reise nach Abu Dhabi mit Besichtigung der Moschee, zweier Museen und einer Mall für das Mittagessen. Ein kurzweiliger Ausflug, der uns gut gefallen hat.

  • Rating: 4 “Es hat alles super geklappt. Bestens.”

    Reviewed by Bernhard from Kefferhausen, Germany on May 26th, 2013 Die Abholung vom Hotel erfolgte, wie vorher per Mail abgecheckt, pünktlich. Durch den Guide war der Ausflug sehr informativ.

    Die Durchführung erfolgte absolut korrekt. Jederzeit wieder.

  • Rating: 4 “Nette Tour durch Abu Dhabi”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Stuttgart, Germany on April 3rd, 2013 Die Abholung hat super geklappt. In Abu Dhabi an sich hat man nicht viel zu sehen. Bis auf die Sheik Zayed Moschee. Diesse ist atemberaubend. Schon allein dafür lohnt sich der Trip nach Abu Dhabi.

  • Rating: 5 “Die Hauptsehenswürdigkeiten Abu Dhabis werden kompakt präsentiert!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Oberursel, Germany on March 23rd, 2013 Man sieht die beeindruckende Sheikh-Zayed-Moschee, ein Museum und das Heritage Village. Von diesem hat man einen grandiosen Blick auf die Skyline Abu Dhabis. Für Fotos vom Emirates Palace Hotel wird ein extra Stopp eingelegt. Die Mittagspause erfolgt in einer Mall.

    Insgesamt eine empfehlenswerte, informative Tour!

  • Rating: 3 “Sehr gut organisierter Ausflug.”

    Reviewed by Georg from Hannover, Germany on March 15th, 2013 Der Besuch von der Moschee war klasse. Schade, dass wir über die Stadt nicht sehr viel erfahren haben.

  • Rating: 4 “ALLES WAR gut, Abholung im Hotel puenktlich, mit deutscher Fuehrung.”

    Reviewed by Gisa from OestrichWinkel, Germany on March 6th, 2013 Tour gingab Dubai, trotzdem Abholung und Absetzen im Hotel in Abu Dhabi moeglich!

  • Rating: 5 “war ein toller ausflug! unser guide ein hervoragender reiseleiter”

    Reviewed by Rommy from Bruchsal, Germany on March 3rd, 2013 Es war ein gelungener Ausflug.sehr interessant und vorallem sehr gut die Geschichte Dubais und seinem Herrscher Sheikh al zayed rübergebracht, gutes Deutsch und Timing für die vielen kleinen Etappen des Tagesausfluh nach Abu Dhabi! Ein großes Lob an Orient Tours!
