We did a quick tour with stops in the city. The guide would be more correct to call it an escort since the information on the attractions was 90% conveyed by the audio guide on the bus. Well done for half a day. The only drawback in the program was also indicated the Louvre in Abu Dhabi and I was thinking of a short stop outside to admire the architecture .. instead we only saw it passing by bus. Also I would have specified that it is possible to enter the Emirates Palace for free.

The very nice guide although he only spoke English made us understand easily the schedules of each stop and was always pending. The audioguides of the bus that were in several languages, including very good Spanish, told the story, what we saw in panoramic, very well. Very highly recommended and very cheap this excursion

We were picked up from the hotel by minibus and had our later guide Farman. Some of the guests later switched to go on the full-day excursion. Farman was a great guide, gave additional information, was friendly, helpful, and also showed a few things. Thanks to Farman's help, you could try out and negotiate prices on the date market. One was also very intensively informed about the healing powers of the dates. Overall, a very worthwhile trip with a great Guide Farman.
