La visite est intéressante à faire, surtout si vous êtes passionné de sport automobile ! Son prix est très accessible : environ 25€. Le guide qui s’est occupé de nous pendant les deux heures étaient très sympathiques et à l’écoute. Pour circuler sur l’île Yas, le bus est le moyen de transport le plus pratique. Nous souhaitions nous rendre a Ferrari World à la suite de notre visite et le bus n’est pas passé (nous ne connaissons pas la cause). L’un des instructeurs du circuit nous a emmener à notre destination pour nous dépanner : nous avons beaucoup apprécié ce geste et ce service rendu !!!!

THANKS to mounir for this road trip in abu dhabi! helpful friendly listens and answers many questions! a very. Soon Just little disappointment I thought he would take me to see the F1 circuit on the spot… but that in no way detracts from his professionalism
