Any Dhabi day tour with Noor! We had an excellent full-day tour with Noor. The pick-up in the morning was prompt and efficient from our hotel at the promised time. Noor was a excellent tour guide with ample knowledge. He did not stop speaking from the start of the tour to the end! But not in an annoying way, he made sure we were all interested and engaged and even gave us some time to nap on our early morning journey to the grand Mosque. I can’t recommend this company enough. One special feature of this tour is that it includes a ticket to the observation deck of Emirates tour in the tour price, which I didn’t even realise prior to booking the tour! The emirates palace was beautiful and Noor ensured none of us would be turned away from the grand Mosque due to our attire - he provided some freshly cleaned abayas and white cloaks for the men free of charge, from the tour company. The best Abu Dhabi tour experience for sure!!

Good value for the money. The observatory has a better view than Burj Khalifa, we paid 75aed/person for a traditional lunch and it was tasty. Many thanks to our guide Mustafa Ahmed, he did a great job.

Zeeshan our tour guide was extremely helpful and informative. Made our whole experience so smooth. We were picked up promptly and well taken care of.
