After pickup from your hotel in Dubai, travel along the Persian Gulf coast to Abu Dhabi while listening to stories about one of the world’s richest cities.

I'll say it was a hood experience; our tour guide Noore, was excellent and really ensured we were relaxed and enjoyed the trip; although it wasn't so exciting for me, simply because Abhu Dhabi didn't really have much; there is nothing there safe for the presidential Palace and the Mosque; and maybe emirate towers, no other attractions there ,it really pales in comparison to Dubai!.... so wasn't really exciting for me; others might be of contrasting opinion.

My tour guide, Noor Ahmad was just excellent. He knew so much stuff about the history of the emirate and was always attentive and making sure I was enjoying and having a good time. He helped as much as he could and was just wonderful. I recommend the company since they have surprises and from the moment I booked they were in touch via WhatsApp to give me info and solve any questions. Truly a great great experience I will never forget.

I absolutely recommend this trip to Abu Dhabi because it is very well-organized; the attractions chosen for the itinerary are in my opinion the best cultural and touristic places to visit; the tour guide provides all the necessary information to make the trip even more interesting. The included pick-up and drop-off were highly appreciated, everything was well-timed in order to avoid the big queues or floods of tourists. We were given the chance to choose our lunch stop and the local Arab buffet we went for was excellent (big variety of local dishes for a very reasonable price). A big thanks to Haseem, our amazing tour guide who made the experience even more pleasant and wonderful.
