What people are saying about Yas Island
Picked up at our hotel on time, people carrier/car with six seats for passengers. Air conditioned and comfortable. Great commentary and explanations during drive to Abu Dhabi. Fast entry into Mosque, Presidential Palace and Etihad Towers, our guide Bassit was friendly with all the security and people at these places ensuring we had quick access. Explained facts and provided information during the tour of the locations the buildings, culture and sights. Accommodated our request for lunch after providing several options.
Our Tour Guide Saddam was very knowledgeable about the UAE. He made the difference with his quirky jokes. He knew a lot about Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Qasr Al Watan. Lunch is not included however we went to a lovely buffet restaurant overlooking the Corniche beach. All in all it was a great experience, however it did feel a little rushed at times...
The seaplanes are operated out of a new terminal near Port Rashid. It is brand new and quite nice. The staff and crew are very professional and taking off and landing on water is always a thrill. We flew around Dubai and then down to Abu Dhabi. It was a great way to see the sites and get a feel for the country.
It was a great adventure. Our guide Nur is a great well-qualified guy who turned out to be a good photographer as well. He told us everything about places we visited and about places we drove past. Highly recommend to check it out)
Excellent tour, great communication in regards to pick up. Fantastic service during the day. very informative guide who knew what time to arrive and get us into places before the large crowds.
