It was very easy to understand and the luck was convenient. Love the narration on the history of the area on the way down. Only negative was that you were dropped off at Dubai Mall not your hotel. Other than I had time to see everything I needed. The treat for me was seeing the embroidered tapestry which was absolutely amazing.

All very nice, logically in a single day you cannot see a capital but you can have an idea of its beauties, the tour with audio guide in Italian helps to understand some aspects that we would not have had the chance on our own, overall it is it was a fantastic tour.

Excellent day out

I would highly recommend this day tour to Abu Dhabi. Excellent information given, so many sites and attractions to see. The tour guide was absolutely brilliant. Had a great sense of humour and answered all questions that came his way. Lunch was a little on the expensive side, and perhaps could be better in choices, however is not enough reason to not go on this day tour! I would definitely recommend this activity to anyone planning a trip to Dubai
