private experience

Absolutely amazing, I upgraded to a private tour as I wanted to go at my own pace and I had the driver Mustafa. Went to louvre, emirates palace and Sheikh Zayed mosque, unfortunately my iphone 12 battery died and I had to borrow the camera from my driver who helped me to take some nice photos. Good time to go, you just need PCR test and Green on al hosn app (as of time of writing) but I had the whole place to myself

The entire trip was pleasant. The tour guide, Rafiq, was very nice and he gave us a ton of valuable information about Abu Dhabi and UAE in general. The bus was super clean. The sites that we went to were great. I would definitely recommend them.

The tour was good. All the stops are only photo ops except for the lunch and the mosque. If you really just want to see the mosque, book a different trip

ABU DHABI TOUR DURING COVID It is near impossible to visit Abu Dhabi as the destination is partially closed most Tourists and Tour Operators. Due to strict Covid protocol companies are not operating. Even after having a heavy loss taking limited number of Guest due to Covid protocol to meet our customers interest to visit the Capital city. The Pre-Covid period there were about 40 thousand Tourists visit Ahu Dhabi in a day from Dubai now it been reduced to less than 100 as of today. We are those among handful of companies only operating Abu Dhabi Tour now. We are taking our Tourists to all the places where we have advertised except Heritage Village (15 minutes stop point) as it closed from March 2020. Your review is contradicting. We are taking all the places same as pre Covid period. Thank you.

Impossible is made possible by the professionals of ABC Tours.

WE DID ABU DHABI TOUR ON 19th JUNE Impossible is made possible by the professionals of ABC Tours. The time I booked I am not sure if I will be able to visit Abu Dhabi... but we made it. This is my 2nd-time visit To Abu Dhabi with ABC Tours. Being an architect I am impressed with the Mosque architecture. You ABC Tours deserve all the credit as the best customer service from the office, a very knowledgeable tour guide, and a luxury van. Frankly speaking some of the negative reviews about this agency is totally wrong... while looking at the reviews I thought to book with another company but I had a super experience last time.. In fact, I never experience such great hospitality anywhere that I traveled. I asked the ABC Guys “why negative reviews” ,,,,, Some of our competitors work and a few of the guest whom we refused to pay the refund as they blackmail us to refund or review. We are trained not to work for the reviews but to offer the world's best services. Let people experience us. Always remember in my experience no one can get only 5 Stars in the service industry... if so then the only 7-star hotel rating must be 5 Star... ABC Tours... You are the best... Thank you

HORRIBLE, TERRIBLE, DO NOT BOOK!
Darragh_G

This company was absolutely unprofessional. I travel internationally often and have never experienced such incompetence. The driver decided to go get “tea” in the middle of the evening, locked the keys in the car and left us stranded for nearly one hour. The manager proceeded to tell me that he was “a nice guy” and I should be more understanding.

Generally Good Abu Dhabi Tour
Ruth
, Mar 2020
Great efforts by company to reach out to us way before our tour to get our details (pick-up location), etc. Guide also arrived before the stipulated time to pick us up. Although all the attractions in Abu Dhabi were closed due to covid-19, our guide tried his best to give us as many good photo opportunities as possible. He was also knowledgeable and quite engaging. To improve: answering of our queries. I asked at least 3 times regarding an estimate of what time the tour would end, and all the person behind the whatsapp did was to say “please read my instructions carefully”. And the instructions were only about covid measures, nothing about ending time. I wasn’t expecting an exact time, but just a rough gauge (late afternoon, evening, etc). The guide also wasn’t able to answer questions asked by the group, he seemed more interesting in telling us what he knew in a one-way manner.
