We were picked up from the hotel on time and smoothly. Then we went to Abu Dhabi in a small group. Our guide Hamdy was super nice and spoke German very well. He liked to talk a lot about the country and the people on the trip. You could ask him all sorts of questions. The excursion destinations were fantastic, although unfortunately we had to wait 1 hour at the mosque despite the booked timeslot. I had read before that long, loose clothing is necessary for women and put them on. But you still get an abaya to be on the safe side. So I do not recommend putting on long clothes on your own, otherwise you sweat yourself to death ... at lunchtime you could eat for 75 AED in a traditional restaurant.

We were picked up from the hotel on time and from there we went straight to the mosque. Since we were there very early, it was still pleasantly empty. As a woman, the tour guide Imran gave you an abaya to enter the mosque. We were there about one hour to one and a half. The Presidential Palace afterwards was no less worth seeing. Finally, we went to the 73rd floor of the Etihad Towers. Overall, we can only recommend the tour.
