The trip comprising of 8 guests in a luxurious air-conditioned minibus was very well planned, organised and executed by the tour guide to maximise comfort during journey as well as enjoy the stunning venues. Appropriate attire for women were provided on the bus for entry to the mosque and the palace. The guide provided all the relevant information on the way as well as guided us through to the mosque and the palace, briefing on the history of both. The ride to the top of Etihad Tower provided stunning views of the surroundings. Ample time was provided at each destination and the guide took all of our pictures at the right spot. We chose the option to have lunch at a fast food restaurant inside Marina Mall which also gave us an opportunity to explore the mall and the eye on its vicinity. Overall a very good experience despite the scorching summer heat of July. I would highly recommend Ocean Air Travels for Abu Dhabi excursion.

We had a wonderful day accompanied at all times by Hassan, who made sure that we enjoyed this unique experience, explaining history, customs, and taking some photos of us in the best places. Essential excursion if you travel to Dubai, you will see the mosque, the Royal Palace and finally go up to the viewpoint of the etihad towers for a vision of all of Abu Dhabi

Fantastic tour! Great organization upfront, as well as super smooth and on time hotel pick & and drop off. Great combination of sights and really recommendable local lunch buffet. Our host Noor was a super knowledgeable, kind, polite and engaged guide. He made sure that all of us could take as many pictures, ask as many questions, and in general get most out of the tour we wanted. We had so much fun with him and he told us so much extra around the country, Dubai, Abu Dhabi etc. besides the actual sides we went to. I learned a lot and had fantastic experiences that day! I would always go again!
