Generally Good Abu Dhabi Tour
Ruth
, Mar 2020
Great efforts by company to reach out to us way before our tour to get our details (pick-up location), etc. Guide also arrived before the stipulated time to pick us up. Although all the attractions in Abu Dhabi were closed due to covid-19, our guide tried his best to give us as many good photo opportunities as possible. He was also knowledgeable and quite engaging. To improve: answering of our queries. I asked at least 3 times regarding an estimate of what time the tour would end, and all the person behind the whatsapp did was to say “please read my instructions carefully”. And the instructions were only about covid measures, nothing about ending time. I wasn’t expecting an exact time, but just a rough gauge (late afternoon, evening, etc). The guide also wasn’t able to answer questions asked by the group, he seemed more interesting in telling us what he knew in a one-way manner.

For the amount paid, the trip is way worth it. I enjoyed the Ferrari world. I wish we spent more time at each of those places but tbh, the plans and time allocated was enough. Timing was perfect and the moderator Mr Binu was very fantastic.. I would come back again if I return with friends.....

Abu Dhabi highlights
Johnnyboy

This trip was excellent from start to finish. All staff were pleasant and courteous, especially the tour guide. (Apologies but I don’t remember his name, rude of me I know). He was an Indian guy who was so engaging and enthusiastic. We covered all the main attractions in Abu Dhabi, albeit not entering all, with the highlight being the Grand Mosque. Would definitely recommend this tour for all ages. There is some walking at the Mosque but if you have difficulty helpful staff have electric buggies available along the underground entrance passage. We did the tour in early March when the weather was quite warm but manageable. Traffic is also very light in Abu Dhabi, the complete opposite of Dubai. A great day out but not exhausting in any way. Certainly a good insight into another culture and way of life. Also good value for what we paid and what we got out of it. Hope this helps.

The tour was exactly as described. There was an efficient use of time by picking up and dropping off guests in smaller Van's to deliver them to a large bus. The Mosque was extremely impressive.
