What people are saying about Sheikh Zayed Mosque

We had a perfect day and the tour was just for us as the other participants gave up due to various problems. I want to clarify that the driver M Shakil c was patient and a very valid driver. while for our guide Sameh what to say, we were speechless. We will never stop thanking him for everything he has done for us, detailed explanations, photos for us to no end and above all his simplicity in making us spend a wonderful day. I repeat if you are lucky and you meet Sameh you hit the jackpot! Graduated in languages and archeology and so on and so forth, so well prepared and above all in Italian is a whole other story! I would go there again tomorrow!

The tour was the highlight of our vacation. The places we visited were already beautiful and extremely impressive, but our guide Robert made the tour something very special. He provided an incredible amount of information, not only about the places we visited, but also about the UAE in general, about life there and about the places and things we drove past. He was able to answer all questions and had an extremely nice, easy-going manner. In addition, he always knew the best photo spots and also acted as a photographer for the entire group. Just a really great day!

The tour was an absolute highlight. The pick up from the hotel was totally smooth. Our tour guide was super friendly and told us a lot on the trip to Abu Dhabi that we would never have heard otherwise. We were also provided with clothing for the mosque for the ladies, so there were no problems. Anyone visiting the UAE for the first time should not miss this opportunity.

This trip was very good, but our guide Ziad made it exceptional. He was professional, courteous, and very interesting from pickup to drop off. He was very knowledgeable about history and gives great detail about the sites we will be visiting as well as sites we’ll be passing by. The visit to the Royal Palace is breathtaking. I could have spent more time there.

Very fun and exciting day out exploring the city of Abu Dhabi. The tour guide was entertaining and made the whole tour special. Absolutely stunning, breathtaking views and architecture. Definitely a must do if visiting Dubai.
