    Our guide, Saquib, made our tour well-worth the drive from Dubai. After picking us up at our Dubai hotel, Saquib used the 90 minute drive as an opportunity to explain UAE’s history, government structure, the different émérites, cultural protocols, agriculture, economy, and the differences between Abu Dhabi and Dubai (we asked). Our favorite stop was, not surprisingly, the Grand Mosque. Saquib timed our visits to the sites at hours when few visitors were present, which made our visit very special. He also explained the meaning of different structures and artwork. Even the outside marble is heat résistent to allow for daily prayers! Should you take this tour, women must wear long, non-see-through sleeves and pants. Women also must cover their heads. Should you come unprepared there are vendors outside of the mosque (in an internal mall) where you can purchase appropriate clothing. Men have more flexibility in dress, though they still need to dress conservatively (short sleeves and long shorts are fine, though most men wear pants).

    Ponctualité, guide au top qui nous a expliqué beaucoup de choses, nous avons pu adapter le circuit pour rajouter une visite. Merci pour ces moments inoubliables.

    Ce n'était pas un tour guidé, seulement un transport privé entre les deux villes. C'est ce que nous avions demandé et c'était PARFAIT. Le chauffeur de la compagnie Arabian aventures, Madhu, a donné des explications intéressantes tout le long du parcours de 1h30. Many tanks to the great driver who was also acting as a touristic guide.

    Fue excelente! Tanto el guía Junai y el chofer fueron muy amables y serviciales. Con Junai aprendimos mucho sobre la cultura y sobre cada lugar que nos mostró. Fue flexible y por sobre todo muy alegre. Es muy buen fotógrafo! Súper recomendable.

    The mosque is the highlight of the trip. Well worth a visit to see. Very interesting to see the diversity from Dubai.

    We have been in this tour and was wondering. Worth every penny. Our tour guide Nimesh was excellent, he made our tour special. He knows everything we asked him, the best guide ever. Thanks.

    This private tour was one of the highlights of our trip. The personalized attention that a private tour provides is an incomparable experience. Our tour guide, Mehul, was amazing, very experienced and knowledgeable. We were truly blessed to have him as our tour guide as he definitely gave the extra mile (as we say in Puerto Rico) to provide us with the best experience and memorable tour. He provided us with great details and information, plus took us stunning photos of all of the places we visited. Our driver, Kishore, was also awesome and very attentive. The combination of having your own driver and your own tour guide provides a level of detail and attention you cannot get in regular tours. The experience of this private tour is totally worth it and allowed to see some of the most beautiful and recognized places in Abu Dhabi with great detail in a few hours. We will always cherish the marvelous experience we had.

    Our tour guide was Ali. He was amazing! I went on a private tour with my husband. He was very informative, patient and kind. The mosque was beautiful, the farmers market type place was cool we got some coffee and chocolate, the old town was interesting with all the coins and different artifacts and the art museum was so beautiful. We stopped for lunch but we weren’t hungry but the food looked great! We really enjoyed it!

    Faisal was an excellent guide and took us around Abu Dhabi for the day as a day trip from Dubai. He made a special point to get us to the Grand Mosque early to avoid the crowds. This was the highlight of the day and he brought us there at the perfect time. He was knowledgeable and friendly so we highly recommend him.

    Highly recommended full-day visit to Abu Dabi. Travel is by comfortable bus with an excellent tour guide, Mr Muhammad Jameel. Our first stop was to the Grand Mosque, a second stop at the Emerates Heritage Center, a nice lunch break, another stop at Ferrari Word & Yaz Mall .
