A very nice excursion in an air-conditioned minibus. Our German-speaking guide first brought us to the Zayid mosque. One of the most beautiful mosques that you have to see when you are in Abu Dhabi. Then we drove on to a Bedouin village, which we could visit for half an hour, in between we were allowed to take photos at various sights and last but not least we were in a small date shop and were allowed to try and buy delicious dates there. There was also a vegetable market there. We bought 1kg of delicious tomatoes for 2 dirhams. Our guide was a very friendly and fun guide who is recommended at all times. His name is Sudath Manodara.

We did a 1/2 day tour through Abu Dhabi with Shabeer Parakunath. He did an excellent job and provided so much information. We really enjoyed the experience. From the pick up he was friendly and helpful. Our first stop was the Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque. It is so beautiful there. We went through all the security and ticket checks without any problem. There after we drove to Yas Island and stopped at the F1 racing course and drove past the waterpark and Louvre. Next stop was the date market. Dates were so fresh. Last stop was the heritage village. This also had more of a touristy feel, but was still interesting to see. From all our experiences in Abu Dhabi, this was the best. Thank you again Shabeer.

A must do experience.

This is the perfect introduction to the history and culture of abu Dhabi. I was guided through the grand mosque learning about its history and materials. My guide linked the core values of emirates as we travelled to the sheik zayeds museum, the heritage village and the date market Abdul is a no. 1 guide.
