What people are saying about Abu Dhabi

We had an amazing experience! The agency was un Comunicacion with me since couple days before making sure we had all the papers we needed go to the tour (passport, vaccine proof and pcr test). Ziad our driver and guide was in Comunicacion with me since the day before to be sure we were all set and the day of the tour he was there to pick up us perfectly on time. The agency lent me an Abadaya (the long dress I needed for the Mosque) free of charge and Ziad explained a lot about the Emirates and the Muslim religion on the way which made the road very interesting. Arriving in the Mosque was easy, he knew his way and had everything in order. Inside the Mosque gave us the full explanation and took us super nice pictures! Helped arranging lunch for us in a very good place (not the typical tourist trap!). Everything he showed us was amazing and he is really knowledgeable and kind, he kept offering us cold water all the time, which was highly appreciated with the very hot weather! Highly recom

it was brilliant and the tour guide was amazing explained everything so well. for the price of tour the food should of been included but part from that was all good.
