one of the best experiences we ever had: 1. Zeeshan Aziz was our guide, one of the best we ever had .. very nice person, helpful, considerate, knowledgeable .. I would definitely go with him to any trip he guides 2. The trip itself was very well organized, we visited the highlights of AbuDhabi with the most time spent at the Mosque & Ferrari world .. more than enough time was given at every stop.. I believe we saw in a day what others experience in maybe 3 days without feeling overwhelmed or exhausted To sum it up, highly recommended, 5 stars for our guide & another 5 for the well organized trip .

Our guide Zeeshan was very nice and spoke perfect English. We also had a lot of nice photo stops and he wasn't above taking pictures for everyone. Top ! It was just a pity that Formula Rossa was closed, where GYG informed us a few days beforehand, which was really very advantageous. Unfortunately there is no indication on the Ferrari World site what a strong minus point is, which of course has nothing to do with GYG and for that they get 5 stars.

This is an amazing experience and well worth the money! The instructors are friendly, welcoming and help you get the best out of your ability in the car. A visit to Yas Marina when in Abu Dhabi is a must for any motor sport fan. To drive a car on the track is just amazing. Thank you!

It was amazing. For a bit of a splurge, you get a bucket list experience and memory. I want to do it again Small warning, if you’ve renewed your drivers licence recently, you’ll need a photo of the old one. Unbelievably, some how, I did !

This is one of the best highlights of my trip! A day trip full of history, architecture, culture and a lot of fun. Thank you very much to my guide Zeeshan Aziz for being a fantastic guide ! Till we meet again!
