Full day tour of Abu Dhabi from Dubai was amazing. The grand Mosque was beautiful. The guide made sure we had enough time to take as many pictures as we liked. He was very informative, professional and made sure the entire group had a great time. We stopped at all the major sights in Abu Dhabi. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get the full view of everything Abu Dhabi has to offer.

Great tour experience thanks to JD and Whiskey ( our tour guide) who went beyond to please us during our entire trip, with kindness and great sense of humor, very chill and relax. If you want a tour guide with exceptional customer service , please request them. Driver also great, on time and professional . Lunch at Intercontinental buffet also highly recommend in case you buy the package. Water was given during the entire tour by guides as courtesy . I will definitely recommend this tour !

I had the great experience of one day tour of Abu dhabi. It was well planned and coordinated. Our Driver/Tour guide was very polite and patient, and took us to all the places which were mentioned in the itinerary and gave us ample time at the major locations like sheikh zayed Mosque, Emirates palace, Heritage village, Ferrari world photo stop among others. I highly recommend this service/tour.

Very good tour, with some highly recommended tour changes. Coordination with ABC Tours was outstanding, with timely updates on travel arrival and departure times because of traffic. Driver and guide were excellent!! Would strongly recommend ABC Tours drop the Ferrari and Louvre Museum stops or make them drive-bys only. Each was about 20 mins, 30 mins including travel time. Both were uneventful, actually a waste of time. Use that 1 hour at the Mall. We had lunch at the Mall's Food Court.
Great idea with nice, cheap food options. There is a Souk wih great shopping attached to the Mall. An hour at the Souk would have been perfect! We found some very good deals on a variety of merchandise--perfumes, spices, etc. Just not enough time. Mosque tour was perfectly timed, along wih the Heritage Village stop.

The way you handle solo travelers is a mess. Last minute “No we don’t pick solos up at their hotel! “. Then after priding the tour operator wit multiple messages, I finally got a list of pickup options after 7:00PM the night before telling me it was urgent that I select one of the 3 options and get back to them Immediately!

I selected this tour as it specified “hotel pickup”! I ended up needing 2 Uber rides costing nearly $50 to get to and from the tour. I could easily have taken a private more friendly tour arranged by my hotel.

Sorry, NO recommendation will NOT use you for booking anything on my fall trip to Europe and will go out of my way to make sure none of my friends and family use your services

This was a great tour!! We really loved our experience on the tour. The company was wonderful with responding to us on WhatsApp and even address our feedback we left after the tour was over. The day was jam-packed and moved fast, but you're doing a whole day in Abu Dhabi -- we saw so much!!

We think that if we had not seen Abu Dhabi, our trip would not have been complete.

We recommend eating your lunch in the trade center, there was an offer to get lunch with a group or go to the trade center. There were so many options in the trade center which we really loved having the options :).

Thank you for a wonderful tour and day!

The day was pack full of sights, info and cultural experience. I really enjoyed my trip to Abu Dhabi and learning about the history. Our guide Binu was great, he was very informative and friendly. The lunch option was also really good and had lots of choice. There was a lot of walking so may be unsuitable for people unable to walk for long periods but I would highly recommend this tour because it’s value for money and you get to see more sights than on other tours.

Trip from Dubai to Abu Dhabi was on time and very comfortable. Our guide and driver made all effort possible to accommodate individual needs, provided detailed explanations about the city, culture, locations, etc. The Mosque is a MUST SEE destination and it is worth the time spent at it. I would spare a few more days to explore Abu Dhabi, but since we didn't have much time, we were able to cover its main locations in a day trip. Definitely worth it.

this is a very good one day introduction to key sites and locations in Abu Dhabi.
Sites / locations visited included Ferrari World, The new Louvre museum, the Historical / cultural centre and the Grand Mosque (my favourite).
The coach was very clean & comfortable and well driven. Our guide - Binu - is very knowledgeable and imparted just enough information to make the trip interesting. Pre arranged buffer lunch was also very good value.
