It was fantastic. Due to time constraints, we only managed the green line, which goes through the Louvre, Yas Island and the great Zayed Mosque. We had not known that the route without getting off takes 1 hour and 40 minutes. But it is very worth seeing. You can see a lot of what's new. The explanations over headphones are very good. The approach to the mosque, which could be seen very well from all sides, was particularly impressive. It is well known that she is not only very big but also beautiful. But when you see them in front of you, you think you've been transported back in time to 1001 Nights, a dream.

We had a wonderful day with Vini our tour guide. He actively supported us during the currently difficult entry into Abu Dhabi and accompanied us through the great day with a lot of information. He was also able to fulfill our special request "cycling on the F1 track". We had a special day with wonderful memories. Many thanks to everyone who made this day possible - especially to Vini!

It was amazing trip. Our guide (zee) was very kind and helpful person. He gives us great information about Abu Dhabi & united Arab Emirates. Highly recommended.

It is really worth doing this tour. If you want to get out more often, or visit museums, mosques and Ferrari World, etc., a 2-day tour is recommended.

Unsure of where to get the bus as we had a taxi to the Louvre , but once the tour had started it went well.
