It's worth it. The two attractions are well worth seeing and are worth a visit for their architecture alone. Since we were in Dubai, we decided on this day trip and were completely satisfied. You will be picked up right at the hotel very punctually, you will receive all the necessary information in advance, you will have a contact person for questions who has everything clarified within minutes and you can also get a PCR test (which was necessary at the time of the trip) for a very reasonable price book the organizer. The bus that picked you up and drove you back was air-conditioned, you got water for the trip and for there. On site and in advance on the bus, the guide told us interesting details about the sights (Mosche and Louvre) and questions were answered in detail and with a lot of background knowledge. All in all it was a very successful day and I can only recommend it.

It was a great trip, thanks to our guide Noor for driving, taking photos and giving us a professional introduction. If you are visiting the UAE for the first time, don't miss ABU Dhabi. The Louvre and the Mosque are truly spectacular. Please do try ~
