Great day in Abu Dhabi. Driver and tour guide Mohamed Ziad is very knowlegable. We were pickup at the hotel on time. The Grand Mosque tour was very interesting and informative. Ladies were provided appropiate clothing to enter the Mosque. A lot of information was given on the history and culture of UAE.
We had a very interesting experience. First of all, we visited the Grand Mosque, a masterpiece of Arab art and then we visited the Louvre Museum Abu Dhabi, a modern and very bold and minimalist building, housing wonderful works of art.
All our trip we were accom[anied by a very nice and helpful guide, Ziad, who gave us very useful and interesting information about Abu Dhabi, the Grand Mosque and the Louvre. Many thanks to Ziad.
This tour needs an excellent guide simply because there is so much exquisite detail at the Grand Mosque you will miss some remarkable things that may escape your eye unless you have some help...as in a very knowledgeable guide. Pavlo the guide on this tour was truly great. His knowledge really increased awareness of the amazing detailed workmanship.
I have traveled all over the world, been in all of the famous churches and mosques...but this is truly an amazing work of art.
The Louvre Museum is unique in construction and layout.
As a tip, EAT AT THE LOUVRE MUSEUM RESTAURANT, I did, it outclassed any meal I have had in Dubai on about 15 to 20 trips.
I highly recommend this tour. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes...there is a lot of ground to cover.
An extremely enjoyable visit to two of the key tourist sites in Abu Dhabi. First stop was the amazing Grand Mosque where we were escorted through the check in and security with our guide for the day, Jahan. What Jahan doesn't know about all the sites and history of Abu Dhabi (UAE) isn't worth knowing. A head full of facts, figures, dates, etc which he shares with aplomb throughout the day as we pass each landmark on our journey. After a breathtaking visit to the Grand Mosque that allows an hour and a half sightseeing c/w countless photo opportunities, including a brief stop at the in-house coffee shops for a quick bite of lunch, its back to the bus for the short journey to the Louvre. Here we had just over two hours to freely roam the 12+ galleries at our leisure. The quality and variety of exhibits that spanned the history of human civilisation were enthralling and if truth be told, a visit of 4-5 hours would have been necessary to do the Museum justice. A fantastic day trip that we would thoroughly recommend. To provide some balance it is only fair to mention that the initial pick up from the hotel was a little disconcerting, a random guy, who had no official ID or company branded uniform/polo shirt, who, after the briefest of introductions, drove us to a near by gas station in an old and slightly worn 4x4, to await the tour bus. Only a small detail but one area that could be improved on in future. Finally, a big thank you to Jahan who kept us entertained and informed throughout.
5 stars for photographers looking for exceptional archtecture.

Great trip. Saddam was a very good guide. Kept track of us all in the Grand Mosque.
But the whine of the bus (to me at least) overpowered guide Saddam's informative talk over amplified speaker during the drive from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Understood very little of what he said. Might have been my seat close to the door.
Also, the website would be better if it included how to confirm [what] hotel pickup will be communicated to the customer when they don't have access to cellular call service. Texts would have been fine. Call to hotel would have been fine. But exactly what hotel is the issue here.
The Grand Mosque seemed to have more queues and easier to get separated. Your tour took care of all entry fees and that really made things a breeze.
Hint for photographers - both locations bring the widest lens you have got. A 15mm was not wide enough for most of the day.
I've read on other tours that there was no time for lunch. This had ample time at both locations (2 hrs) plus a 1/2 hr break for lunch (price not included). Which was why this tour is a bit more expensive.
Comfortable bus with water offered at every entry.
Our tour guide and driver were amazing. We are from the United States and mistakenly selected a Spanish tour. Luckily when met with our tour guide, he spoke 4 languages (1 being Spanish). He was very knowledgeable and gave us enough time to grab lunch, explore, and see the sights.
