This was amazing! Japan, our tou guide, had our group engaged and attentive. He made sure he shared the importance of each location we visited. He made sure that we had all the information we needed. Jahan is very knowledgeable and has all the answers to the questions that were asked. The Palace and the Mosque were amazing. Omg, the view from the Etihad towers is breathtaking. Last but not least, the Arabian food hit the spot, amazing! I will definitely recommend your company to anyone, not just friends and family. Thank you for the wonderful information and great customer service.

Hassan was a very informative guide! The destinations visited were impressive. What was not so good was that due to the lunch break (which was only requested by 4 guests out of 16 in total) the time in the palace was far too short for us. We had to run through. That was too bad.

The city tour with the tour guide Robert was very informative, excellently organized and carried out. thank him We came to Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal 2 by AIDA ship and were picked up from there on time and returned on the ship. Robert provided us with "Abayas" for free and pointed out the best spots to take photos. When booking the excursion we had a small problem that the pickup location Cruise Terminal in Abu Dhabi was not accepted by GetYourGuide website. We have specified a different pickup location. However, the pick-up location could easily be changed one day before the start of the city tour via chat with GetYourGuide.
