Good day out
, Feb 2020
Great day out as an overview of the city our driver was very informative and caring. We invited him to have lunch with us as he took us to the fish market where we bought fresh fish he then took it to the restaurant at the front of the market where they then cleaned and cooked it The pick up procedure could have been a little more clearer as we waited in the lobby

Great attractions - Absolutely terrible guide
, Jan 2020
All in all an unpleasant experience. We chose he English language guide however our guide could barely speak a word of english. We had expected a tour of the mosque, however our guide simply acted as a driver and dropped us off, asking us to reconvene at his car by 6pm. He also didn't seem to follow any sort of itinerary and we ended up having to remind him of the places we were meant to visit. The response we got to some were that they are meant for the full day tour, even though they are listed as part of the half day tour. I'm grateful we did not let this totally ruin our experience, because the actual monuments are amazing.
Exceptionally well run

We had booked our half day tour as we had a 15 hour layover in Abu Dhabi. We were able to be picked up at the Premier Inn International Hotel which is immediately next door to the airport. We had to exit the airport and get a transit visa. I had tried to do it on line and paid the fees but they responded by saying that you didn't need to do it on line and that fees were forfeited. Getting the transit visa at the airport was easy. Our driver Annis picked us up and my wife and I were the only passengers in his Toyota 8 seater. The tour of the Corniche, the Historical Centre, the Emirates Palace Hotel, a date shop and the Sheikh Zayed Mosque was excellent. Annis was attentive and answered all of our questions. The only minor criticism is that there was not enough time at the mosque. I would strongly recommend this tour.

This was not a guided tour but just being dropped off to explore for yourself. The Grand Mosque is well worth the visit however no gold souk was visited only a rug mskong place thar wove gold into their rug and tried to give you the hard sell on a rug and no visit yo the Corniche or Abu Dhabi Mall.
Mind at ease
, Oct 2019
It was great to have a driver just drive you around to all the “hot” spots. It sets your mind at ease and you don’t have to worry about anything. He drops you off at the destination and go and explore on your own. Feels more like a taxi service than a tour guide. So that’s the only feedback I would give is that it would be nice if the “tour guides” gave more information on history, culture, background etc. Maybe it’s just because I’m used to those types of tours but it just seemed like I was constantly asking questions instead of being given a “tour” verbally. Our driver was so kind, thoughtful and attentive to all our questions! He did a great job pointing out different buildings and showing us around. I just assumed he would come to the mosque as well and tell us information there too. But all good! It was fun and we saw so much ! Would book again.

Teure Taxitour
, Oct 2019
Durch diese Tour kommt man mehr oder weniger planmäßig von A nach B. Infos zu den Stopps sind eher spärlich und 3 könnte man sich komplett sparen da nur Verkaufstopps. Was wir sehen wollten (Grand Mosque und Heritage Village) haben wir gesehen, mussten uns vor Ort allerdings komplett selbst zurecht finden.
Gute Tour für 4 Stunden
, Aug 2019
Gute, halbtägige Tour. Ca. 4 Stunden. Guter und netter Fahrer. Waren mit dem Fahrer alleine. Wenig Touristen. Temperatur 40 Grad. Negativ: bei der online Buchung könnte man keinen Pick up Ort eingeben. Auch das Mail wurde nicht beantwortet. Erst nach dem Nachfragen übers Hotel wurde schlussendlich der Pick up, Hoteladresse bestätigt. Schlechter Service von Viator.
