We had an amazing time touring Abu Dhabi. Our tour guide Jahan, is punctual, polite, knowledgeable, resourceful and accommodating. Visiting presidential palace was part of the tour. It so happened that the palace was closed and would reopen later in the afternoon. Jahan, took us to another attraction so that we can come back to the palace when it reopens. Thank you Jahan for sharing your knowledge with us and making this tour very enjoyable. We booked our other tours with the same company and they’ve been very professional each step of the way. Will definitely recommend these tours to our friends.

This experience is worth the money. I enjoyed the whole day tour in Abu Dhabi and the tour guide was very helpful making this experience a good one. He even help with great spots on all the sightseeing for photoshoot. He was very accommodating to questions and shared many information about the culture and lifestyle in UAE. Overall it’s worth the money and will definitely recommend this to all other tourists.
