The tour at the Sheikh Zayed Mosque was one of a kind and a humbling experience. As a Catholic, I was in awe to see the magnificence of a mosque that is rich with Islamic art. I am happy that non-Muslims like me are welcome to experience the beauty and the sacredness of this mosque. After our mosque visit, we had a short stop at the Emirates Palace Hotel where we took a lot of pictures in the lobby to capture its grandeur and elegance. Then we had lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon at the Ferrari World. Almost all rides are family-friendly that children can enjoy. We specially enjoyed taking pictures of the various Ferrari models released throughout the years. I also enjoyed the Marnella ride where we learned about the processes involved in making a Ferrari. Before heading back to Dubai, we passed by at the Yas Marina Circuit where car and bike races are held. The success of this tour was due to our wonderful tour guide, Nauman, who made us comfortable all thorughout the trip.

Ifan the guide was fantastic, the safety brief was fast and to the point and was all relevant. There is boxes to leave your belongings but I would recommend sunglasses water and your phone to take some pics when you do slow down. Was well worth it and doing something different in Abu Dhabi is always a plus. Overall great service, great people and a great tour. Thanks Ifan you and your team were amazing!
