The tour started badly as we had to wait more than one hour on the bus for the rest of the group.
When arriving to Abu Dhabi, we were informed that we would only have 45 minutes to visit the Great Mosque and any delays wouldn't be accepted! The tour would go on and the people late would have to get a taxi back... Even I understand the motivation behind the message, it isn't polite at all this statement. 45 minutes to visit such a great landmark is crazy though! All the stopping points were like this... Fast and furious, with no explanation at all from the guide. The only good thing was the lunch! Really don't do this tour! I'm sure there are better options!
The tour was mostly in the bus, watching everything from a distance. Next time I will look for a much better tour.
The city is beautiful, but need time to see it.
Having worked on motorways for over 30 years repairing cars I know that you don,t change from one bus to another on the hard shoulder of a busy motorway considering that another set of people were collected a few miles down the road in a service station.
It was not the most modern tour bus that I have traveled on and when we told we could take pictures of the places we passed through, it helps if you stop and have clean widows to do so.
When we arrived at the first stop the the beautiful mosque it seemed the tour guide was more interested in hiring out coverings for the ladies than helping with information. My wife and I talked about the mosque and I think it is almost as beautiful as the Taj Mahal
we then driven to the presidential palace past the houses of the royal family this was where we were so supposed to take photos through the dirty windows, but the thing that was said after we stopped at the palace gates there is a better place for filming along the road and guess what we had to take them through the dirty windows.
Having done quite a lot touring you get used to the guide usual stop to the place that sells carpets or other over priced goods so we sat on the bus 2 more seasoned tourists who did not need the 15 minutes of selling.
One plus point the food served for lunch in the Sheraton was better than most buffets on a tour.
The final stop at Ferrari world was nice to see, but unless you go for the tour there it is a waste of time.
Finally the tour guide when asked a few questions by some of the guests he seemed at a loss for answers. I would also would have liked to know in advance it was going to be 2 language tour.
So taking all things into consideration I can only say I was sorely disappointed.
Excellent tour, very enjoyable day out
A great day well worth the effort to see more of the UAE. Very knowledgeable guide that gave an excellent account of the history and development of the country. Stop at Mosque and other photogenic spots. Topped off with an excellent choice for lunch before heading back to Dubai. Picked up and dropped back at our accommodation in a very timely manner.
The trip was well organized the best part was the tour of the grand Mosque but unfortunately they should carry a few more dress covering for the ladies as some thought they dressed o.k. but unfortunately werent admitted inside. Also the lunch at the hotel was amazing.The tour to Ferrari World was o.k but disappointed couldnt see the race circuit. All up would recommend this trip.Unfortunately I have no photos as had my camera stolen at a later date.
This tour was amazing!
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was an amazing tour!
The tour is definitely worth the money! First stop was the breathtaking mosque. Everything went well just women be sure you're not wearing any clothing that's any way see through or you won't be let in, but you can rent out the traditional dress from your guide. We then got to see the Emirates Palace and corniche. We had lunch at a lovely hotel and the food was brilliant. We got about 15mins at the Ferrari World and then travelled back to Dubai. Our guide was super informative on every aspect of the trip. Abu Dhabi is great but nothing compared to Dubai!
Good tour. Nice guide that explained everything sorry, forgot the name, he's from Sri Lanka. Beautiful white mosque. Good lunch at the Sheraton.
