The Basics

The Corniche is a popular area for family recreation. On warm, sunny days, snag a spot under an umbrella at Corniche Beach at either the public, family, or singles entrances, and cool off with a plunge in the designated swimming area.

In the evenings, you can join locals strolling along the well-paved promenade or sit in one of the landscaped parks and gardens scattered along the way. Be sure to bring your camera, as the Corniche offers spectacular views of Abu Dhabi’s skyline and unobstructed panoramas of the turquoise water.

Everything was well planned. On time pick up at the hotel, structured tour. Tour guide was very informative and jolly. Made us aware of the rules at the different places visited specially at the mosque. Tour guide was professio ally dressed and the vehicle is clean. He even gave us water. One little thing, they should have a trash bin inside the van.

Full-Day Abu Dhabi City Tour from Abu Dhabi
I don't know how this tour doesn't have more reviews, our tour with Benny was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. Benny is a wealth of knowledge and provided us with so much insight into Abu Dhabi and the UAE. He took us to all the best spots in the City and was also so patient and took plenty of awesome photos of us at every attraction. Highly recommend this tour if you visit Abu Dhabi!
