Meet your guide in the center of town and hop inside your air-conditioned minivan for your tour of the city. Capital of the UAE, Abu dhabi is often called the Arabian Jewel a name that testifies to the citys lavish monuments and flashy modern architecture.

As you travel around town, listen to your guides stories about the city and, of course, its fascinating sights.

    Top rate tour guides. We had a wonderful time.

    Certainly wasn't all that interesting and seemed a bit disjointed and disorganised. Would be helpful if there was information prior to the tour about approved attire for the Mosque. Wish we had left this one off the itinerary

    We were picked up from our Hotel in Abu Dhabi by Taxi and transfered to the Mosque, and again transfered from Ferrari race track. The tour guide was great and we had an informative time

    Yes, I accept that this was a 'highlights' tour, but there were a couple of things that could be left out to enable the group to spend more time at the Sheik Zayed Mosque. The guide was good, but dual language tours tend to reduce interest when your language is not being spoken. Overall, a good tour, but room for improvement.

    No time given at the mosque. I went back to the mosque on my own. Again only 45 minutes given to have lunch and shop. Not impressed with this tour. It would be cheaper to catch a taxi to the destinations and take your time doing things.

    It was a wonderful day tour with the guide. I learned so much about the city and culture from her because she was very knowledgeable. I had a lot of questions and she willingly explained to me and others to share. Thank you very much!
