We first went to the mosque it was absolutely amazing, grand and we were able to see lots of the rooms. Then we went to the Etihad tower we had got to see the palaces from the tower it was a great view of the whole of Abu Dhabi. Then we went to a traditional buffet to have some Saudi delicacy’s that tasted very good. Afterwards we went to the presidential palace to see all of its grandeur there is gold trim everywhere. Our tour guide was Mohamed Iqbar he was very passionate about telling us all about the buildings that we drove past in the building and very diligent and thoughtful when answering questions that we had.

Meine Freundin und ich haben an der Tour um 08:30 Uhr teilgenommen. Wir wurden pünktlich vom Hotel abgeholt und sehr herzlich empfangen. Zu unserem Glück hatten wir einen deutschsprachigen Tourguide. Der Tourguide war stets freundlich und hat uns mit vielen interessanten Informationen versorgt. Die Tour war sehr umpfänglich, man bekommt viel geboten für den Preis. Es ist sehr empfehlenswert. Die besuchten Orte sind wunderschön und man kann tolle Bilder machen. Wenn man hier ist, dann muss man diese Orte besucht haben. Es lohnt sich. Zur Mittagspause wird man zu einem arabischen Restaurant gefahren. Der Preis für das Mittagsbuffet liegt bei 75AED und es lohnt sich. Getränke sind im Preis enthalten und die Speisen waren sehr lecker. Ich bin froh, dass wir an der Tour teilgenommen haben, weil wir einen sehr schönen Tag hatten. Vielen Dank an unseren Tourguide Ramadan und unseren Fahrer Sohail.
