We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Our guide Riz was very knowledgeable about the history and details of the Grand Mosque. He also provided great information on the UAE as well. The photographers captured tons of photos of us in the designated areas so we have plenty to help us remember all the awesome things we were able to see while there. Highly recommended!

I had an eventful day visiting the mosque. Ramadan was our tourist guide for the day. He was on time to pick me up from my hotel. The journey started about 8:30am. He communicated during the drive and how the long the journey will be since we were leaving Dubai to Abu Dhabi. There were no surprises because we were all informed. He was very engaging and insightful. He had knowledge about the mosque and answered all our questions throughout the day. I had a photographer Mohammed and he was the best. Very professional. He made sure I posed right for the picture. He was spot-on in ensuring the background was perfect and my cloth was adjusted all the time for each shot. Mohamed is perfect and even made sure I got my pictures. The pictures came out perfect and I had no complaints.

I booked my excursion online and was collected on time for my hotel. Prior to this, there was professional contact from the company telling me all I needed to know about the trip. We had a great tour guide and also opted for the photographer option. Our photographer farvas was absolutely amazing. He got great snaps of myself and my husband and he was so polite. Would definitely recommend this package!
