The places visited were excellent although a little rushed going through The Grand Mosque - it was beautiful though. Our guide was informative and allowed photo stops. The only issue we had was meeting - it would be better if the guide held up the company or users name as it was extremely busy coming out of cruise terminal it was only logging into terminal WiFi that helped us find each other. Many people do not have the use of their phones when overseas.

Great value for money. You get to see the main attractions in one day. My guide was very friendly and went above and beyond to explain the attractions, but he also spoke about Abu Dhabi in general and pointed out landmarks on the road inbetween the attractions. I highly recommend this trip!
