The guide was very punctual, always asked what I wanted and kindly passed on interesting information. The highlight was the visit to the mosque, all under the very difficult Corona conditions, because many sights cannot be visited.

Since Abu Dhabi is quite smaller compared to Dubai, this half-day tour is sufficient ... I can also recommend a safari in the dunes, but here too, half a day is completely sufficient ...

This is a great tour. I really enjoyed the opportunity to see the mosque and the lunch was fantastic! The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

Amazing, must visit! The guide was very kind and helpful. We saw everything and we spent as much time everyvhere as we wanted.

Amazing experience!! Had the best guide Mounir very welcoming, knowledgeable and made the experience perfect
