What people are saying about Ferrari World Abu Dhabi
We had a great day in Abu Dhabi with Zishan Aziz as our guide. He had great facts to share on the 1 hour drive there and he pointed out interesting landmarks and sites throughout the trip. He was also very kind to offer to take photos of us throughout the day. The Mosque, Corniche, Hotel and Ferrari World were all fantastic. And it was a great bonus to get to also spend time at the Formula 1 race track. Ferrari World was especially great because since we went on a weekday, there were no lines for the rides.
We took the Green Line in order to see the Grand Mosque and the Louvre museum. However most of the journey was on an uninteresting road with not much to see. Also it was very expensive especially given the fact that we were only able to properly see two of the sites/attractions on offer - we could have taken a taxi for less
Everything worked just perfect, we had amazing guide Mounir, couldnt wish for better one. He knew his job well, we could ask about any facts, everything well explained. All tour very personal, not big group, which worked so well for us. Highly recommend to anyone who likes his guide to be more of a friend.
Our tour leader Zeeshan Aziz was really dedicated and explained in detail all the places we visited. He was also helpful in taking pictures to make our visit more memorable. He drove very carefully and his timing was precise. I would really recommend him for other trips
Excellent day out, the whole trip was excellent, got to see so much which was amazing. Our tour guide did a great job as well. He explained everything clearly. Super friendly, nice day out especially for the family.
