My friend and I had a great time at the tour. The entire journey was smooth and there was no delay from the pick up to entering the Grand Mosque and queuing. Our guide Shakil was very patient and also guided us well. The tour was very informative with information on the history of Dubai and our surroundings on our journey to Abu Dhabi as well. Our photographer was also very professional and efficient and gave us ideas of poses to do.

They staff was wonderful. Noce air-conditioned van; slept on the way there and bag. Guide was very sweet and knowledgeable. The pics turned out great although they take them at pre-determined spots; not any spontaneous shots. The Mosque is breathtaking and definitely a must see. Also in case you want to wear a colorful abaya instead of the black ones they have, there are stores there where you can purchase but semi expensive.
