In general, this is a good tour and a great way to spend a whole day in Abu Dhabi if you are there for a short visit. You will experience the main attractions and do so in a comfortable setting. The day started with the tour bus picking me up at my hotel promptly at 9am. The first stop was the grand mosque. We spent an hour in the mosque, which is beautiful and worth the experience. The tour guide was very helpful and informative. For the rest of the city tour, we drove around Abu Dhabi in a bus and drove past some of the key city attractions. The Desert Safari was also a very pleasant experience. We drove along the sand dunes in an SUV and ended up at the camp where there were several options of activities, including camel rides and quad bikes, both at extra cost. Sandboarding on the adjacent sand dunes was complimentary. A complimentary buffet dinner followed, including some entertainment (traditional dancers and music). I was then dropped off at my hotel at 9pm well satisfied.
This was a full day. The morning tour finished with 30 minutes spare to get ready for the second tour. The city tour was informative and the mosque was beautiful this took up most of the time with brief visits to other sights. The afternoon/evening tour was again enjoyable. The bbq was very good.
The city tour was average, mainly focus on grand mosque. However it’s really worth to see the mosque. It’s the most beautiful building I have ever since. In dessert safari dune bash was awesome. Other activities are good too. My kids enjoyed the safari most.
This was an amazing way to spend the day in Abu Dhabi, we only had 1 full day to spare and felt like we saw many of the highlights and got to experience a piece of Arabic culture.
City tour was a bit fast, collecting peole from different hotels and mosque took most of the time and had little time in the other places. Safari was excellent.
