What people are saying about Abu Dhabi

Very nice Tour ! Ibrahim, our guide, was very nice and arranging. He knows a lot about the region and shares his knowledge in a very pleasant and funny way. Very respectful as well ! Shout-out to THE driver, Saith Muhamed ! best driver ever ! He deserves a medal for smooth and conscious driving. I recommend this tour for everyone. Value for money ! For my frenchy fellows : vous n’allez pas le regretter ! Magnifique expérience avec des gens top ! :)

Great tour to get a mix of the cultural highlights of Abu Dhabi and then end it with an afternoon of fun at Ferrari World! Nauman was a great and informative guide. His knowledge of Abu Dhabi and the Grand Mosque provided good context and he was also able to give us a list of the top rides to experience at Ferrari World. Overall I'd recommend this for anyone wanting to see the highlights of Abu Dhabi & Yas Island in one day.

Very well structured and very good guide, however I would avoid the Arabic restaurant with buffet as it did not live up to expectations. There were maybe 5 dishes that weren't particularly tasty. The restaurant felt like a tourist trap. Since the restaurant is not included in the price, you can avoid it. The tour itself is highly recommended.

Great experience to see more of the country culture architecture

It was fun day trip and the tour guide very helpful!
