Highly recommended! Our tour was led by Muhammad Ali (yes, that is his real name). If you want to spend a day tour from Dubai to Abu Dhabi and can cover the key sites - THIS IS THE TOUR you should take. Our tour guide (Muhammad Ali) was very knowledgeable and took care of the entire group (14 of us). He is also the best photographer! The van was comfortable. The time at each destination is just enough for you to check it out, take some pictures and enjoy. Very well managed tour, you are in good hands.

Perfect and well executed day! We had time to do all the attractions in Abu Dhabi with the added bonus of a visit to the Louvre which, although short, was rewarding in many ways. Special mention for the Etihad Tower which has a much better view than the Burj Khalifa! The guide, Jahan, was amazing. Super available, excellent photographer and above all, a fine connoisseur of the UAE who could inform us about all aspects of this country as well as about visits, always with a much appreciated touch of humor! Thank you Jahan

Iqbal was an incredible guide. He brought us to many stunning locations in Abu Dhabi where we missed all the crowds due to his schedule. He was so knowledgable and very approachable for questions. He even took fabulous pictures for us. Would highly recommend this tour and Iqbal as your tour guide.
