    My sister and I were going to Dubai a couple of weeks ago and wanted to take a day trip so we contacted Viator. There were many trips to choose from but we decided on the Full day Abu Dhabi day trip with lunch. The booking was easy and once in Dubai our hotel pickup went well and our tour guide Moonir was fabulous. The ride was smooth, he was friendly and knowledgeable, and we asked him about may aspects of life in the Arab Emirates that we had wondered about. We went to the beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Emirates Palace Hotel and Ferrari World and F1 Grand Prix circuit. We also toured much of the city and saw where the new Louvre and Guggenheim was being built. We opted not to do the Heritage Village. The buffet lunch at a nice hotel was plentiful and delicious. They were very contentious of my food allergies. I would definitely recommend this tour and guide to anyone and would like to thank Moonir again for the memorable day we spent with him.

    We booked this tour with Viator before leaving the UK and made a special request to spend time at the FI Grand Prix circuit. I am not sure if this saved us any money as there are so many tour variations and options in Dubai but as a private tour I felt that we got good value for money.
    I will start with a couple of moans about the poor information provided by Viator - firstly they promised travel by luxury Vehicle - I don't call a tatty old Ford Explorer with all the engine warning lights flashing away throughout the trip a luxury vehicle and this needs to be addressed.
    Secondly the information given about the ladies dress code for the Mosque is completely wrong - it says that ladies and gents just need to cover there knees and shoulders but in fact ladies need to fully cover there arms, knees and head with material that cannot be seen through - this resulted in us Initially being turned by security but thankfully our guide managed to improvise and get us in.
    Moans over lets get on to the good stuff - our guide was Tunisian but had lived in Dubai for 17 years and was very knowledgeable. He both explained things as the tour progressed and also answered our numerous questions. The Mosque was our first stop after approx 1 HR 15 mins travel from Jumeirah Beach and it is an amazing building and is a real must see for anyone visiting this area.
    We followed the standard itinerary which included an excellent buffet lunch at a new city centre hotel.
    In the afternoon we continued to see the outside of Ferrari World theme park where you can't really get to see very much and then on to Yas Island F1 Grand Prix circuit. As requested our guide made extra time for us here and we gained access to the pit lane and garages which were full of various types of car that can be driven around the circuit by prior arrangement. However with a track temperature of 58 degrees this is not for the faint hearted!
    We returned to our hotel at 4.30 making it a 7.5 rather than a 9 hour tour
