The trip was well planned and we got to see all the places of importance. We had an excellent tour guide who explained the history behind every monument. we got time to see at every place. The bus was very comfortable and the staff were very very courteous and helpful. This made our trip enjoyable and memorable. The pick up and drop facility was an added bonus considering Dubai traffic.

Insightful trip

Despite the effort of having to get a PCR test prior to visiting Abu Dhabi and having to show our vaccination status everywhere we went, the tour was worth it in particular to see the mosque which is absolutely stunning (the photos really do not do it justice). Our guide Binu was very likeable and knowledgeable on the Emirates culture and Abu Dhabi sites and really helped make the trip. Pick up and drop off at hotel was a plus.

Amazing trip considering Abu Dhabi opened their boarders up to some travelers 1 week prior. Most places were closed due to covid, but were still able to get some photo ops at various places. The mosque was open & got amazing photos inside!

EVERYTHING WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT PLEASE ADVISE WHAT WENT WRONG Thanks for your review .. From your review its clear that everything was fine.. We just wanted to clarify few things about our Abu Dhabi Tour. We are one of the Top sellers of Abu Dhahi Tour and we been operating it for years and our Tour is updated all the time with new opening Tourist attractions. 1)We are the only company who use European made luxury buses for the Tour where as 90% of company use Chineese Buses. 2) We offer pick up from almost all hotels in Dubai and some locations in Abu Dhabi. 3)Our program is operated with Professional Guide with Dubai and Abu Dhabi Tourism Department. 4)Our program is complete full 10 hrs program with visit to all main attractions. Abu Dhbai is developing Emirate and we keep on update our Tours based on new attractions. I strongly believe and understand that you might have made a mistake in rating the star of this review as you have no complaints.

My mother is in her late 60’s and she is visiting me in Dubai. I was worried about her not enjoying the tour by herself but she loved it. She raved about the other passengers abd said her tour guide was kind and very knowledgeable. She said the driver was also excellent. She enjoyed every part of it!!!

Absolutely amazing, I upgraded to a private tour as I wanted to go at my own pace and I had the driver Mustafa. Went to louvre, emirates palace and Sheikh Zayed mosque, unfortunately my iphone 12 battery died and I had to borrow the camera from my driver who helped me to take some nice photos. Good time to go, you just need PCR test and Green on al hosn app (as of time of writing) but I had the whole place to myself

The entire trip was pleasant. The tour guide, Rafiq, was very nice and he gave us a ton of valuable information about Abu Dhabi and UAE in general. The bus was super clean. The sites that we went to were great. I would definitely recommend them.
