I recommend everyone to take this tour. Our tour guide was Hakim. hakim was very good tour guide. Has great knowledge of everything he has and tells. Told us a lot of very interesting information. Took very good care of us. He was also very communicative and very friendly. If every guide becomes like that then life will be easier. With Hakim you didn't notice that he was at work, it was more like his hobby. And what can I say about tour ? Well there isn't much to say. That's just a must see. Moses was beautiful. It's just worth it. Still with pick up from hotel saves a lot of time and stress Recommended 10/10

Jahan was the best tour guide ever! He was funny and accommodating to all guests. We really enjoyed our trip and we couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide. He also showed us to an amazing restaurant for optional lunch and the food was so good. I really recommend this tour as we got to see and learn so many cool facts Abu Dhabi. Jahan was very knowledgable and made our experience wonderful. Thanks again Jahan for making this trip so special for us ps. He is also a great photographer!!

The places we visited were nice, but I had limited time in Dubai and I wish I have done the desert safari or have gone to the Palm Jumeirah Island instead. The best part of the trip was our guide - Riz (from Ocean Air Travels)! He gave us a lot of info about the history and the current state of affairs of Abu Dhabi, he answered all of our questions, he was funny and easy-going, he took great pictures of us - of photographer's quality! As for the rest of the trip - we stopped only at 3 places - the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the Observation Deck of Etihad Towers and the Qasr Al Watan palace (excluding the lunch restaurant / mall). We drove through other places too, but didn't stop there. The lunch is not included and I don't recommend going to the mall, because there is only fast food there. They provided abayas with scarves for the ladies for free (of course, we had to return them after the trip). Bus was comfortable and there was free water (but also bring your own, it was not enough).
