This was a great tour. The best part if it was the amazing tour guide Sudan. He was so knowledgeable. I learned so much about the government, art, history,economy, lifestyle and culture of the UAE. He knew where to go and how long to stay in order to avoid the crowds. Also, had a chance to hear about him original home Sir Lanka. Very personable.

This tour allowed us to visit the most interesting places in Abu Dhabi. Our guide was a good driver and gave us some interesting information on the visited places. We had some difficulties finding him at the port, the meeting point should be more precisely located.

I took this half-day tour of Abu Dhabi and the tour Guide, Sudath, was incredible. He went above and beyond expectations. He is knowledgeable, kind, and clearly very experienced. He spoke English and German impeccably---incredible range of vocabulary. Furthermore, it is clear he is passionate about his job and wants to ensure his clients learn about and enjoy the sites. Thanks SO much, Sudath!

Perfect 1/2 Day Tour of Abu Dhabi
Jenny_B

Great tour, great price, awesome sites, and fantastic tour guide. This is exactly what I was looking for - a half day tour of Abu Dhabi. The sights were great and it was efficiently managed, yet never felt rushed. I usually don’t do solo adventures in an unfamiliar city, but the tour guide and other passengers were so nice. I felt safe and comfortable the entire time. Highly recommend!!
