Overall, a very nice tour with great sights and a very motivated guide. You got great impressions of the top sights in Abu Dhabi. possibly we would have liked a little less photo stops in the mosque and a little more time in the royal palace, but that's certainly a matter of taste. In summary, absolutely recommendable.

The tour is highly recommended. Our guide Robert took us to the most beautiful sights in Abu Dhabi and told us many interesting things. We not only saw them from the outside but were also inside the mosque, royal palace and Etihad Towers. It was also particularly nice that we drove in a small bus with 12 people. I can only recommend everyone to book this tour.

Highly Recommended! We were picked up from the cruise terminal in a small group. Already on the way to the beautiful white mosque, our Austrian travel companion Robert explained a lot of interesting facts about Abu Dhabi. We took a long tour of the mosque, accompanied again and again by interesting information and the best photo perspectives. We went on to the Etihad Towers, where we were able to get a wonderful view of AD from a height of 300m. After a small but fine lunch in an Asian restaurant (about 20€ for drinks and buffet) we drove to the last stop of the tour, the Qasr Al Watan (Royal Palace). There we had enough time for a detailed exploration ... you have to see the thing by the way. Such an architecture of an unbelievable size, indescribable. Afterwards, after around 6.5 hours, we went back to the ship, where the travel group Robert toasted the great day.
