Guide Zeeshan was on time for hotel pickup. As a private tour you had the guide to yourself. It was like traveling with a friend. He was also able to respond to individual requests. For example, at my request, we had spent more time at the Formula 1 race track and were even able to go to the VJP terrace. All sights were visited as in the program and there was enough time for photos. The guide always offered to take our picture so we never had to rely on selfies. On the tour we had seen the most important of Abu Dhabi.

We were a small group, only 8 people. Pick up directly from the hotel, super punctual. The trip was very entertaining, as our guide Mounir answered all questions about the country and its people in great detail and in an interesting way. In Abu Dhabi the highlight is the mosque, well worth seeing. After the city tour with several photo stops, we dropped off the rest of the group at Ferrari World and had a private tour tailored to our needs. With fish and dates market, delicious traditional lunch, simple but delicious and many more questions about the Emirates well answered. Finally we were at the Formula 1 race track. An all-round successful excursion, which we are happy to recommend.

Would highly recommend this excursion to Abu Dhabi. Were picked up at 8:30 am at the hotel in Dubai by our guide Zeeshan. There were only 2 of us and therefore we had our guide and minivan just for us. He explained a lot to us on the way there and answered our questions. He gives you a say in the program and extra time was never an issue. He was always available to take photos and took great pictures. Finally, he looked for a mailbox for us to post our postcards. At 4:00 p.m. we were back at the hotel. All in all a very successful trip, which we would do again at any time.
