Very good tour. Nice and friendly driver. To be highlighted is the great audio guide, which, unlike many others, is not boring at all, but incorporates many jokes and crazy stories. Book with lunch in the mall, which consists of an Arabic 3-course menu. It's a lot of driving, of course, but you have to put up with it if you want to see Dubai in 9 hours from Abu Dhabi.

Very good service, with everything on time. Excellent guide. I just wish there was more time on the ground. I would have liked to see the heritage neighborhood, for example.
