What people are saying about Abu Dhabi

I recently went on this trip with my mum and we had a great time. We were picked up from the hotel and then headed to Dubai. The tour guide did an excellent job at explaining the history of both Dubai and Abu Dhabi and talked about historical monuments. We got to explore most of Dubai during this day trip. Visited palm Jumeriah, burj al Arab, Burj Khalifa, Dubai mall and also went to the spice and gold markets by boat. Overall was a very enjoyable experience and was definitely worth the money. Would highly recommend to others looking to travel to Dubai.

This was brilliant and we went all round the Mangrove and the boats go actually really fast . Definitely recommend it.
