We loved this tour because it was very informative and we saw so much during the day. Thanks to our awesome guide Manjinder Singh we had a feeling that we have really learnt a lot about Abu Dhabi. He was always eager to answer any of our questions and really tried to make sure that we enjoy our time with him and the rest of the group. We are still under the impression of the visit of the Sheih Al Zayed Mosque. It was simply stunning! Thank you for everything! You really made us feel welcomed and we look forward to coming back to Dubai and Abu Dhabi soon!

Our guide Ahmed was superb. He guided us about the tourist attractions, have shared useful knowledge and facts regarding different attractions, histry of UAE and 7 emirates, etc. He was quite calm and patient and friendly. He was also answering all our specific queries regarding dates, pearl and many other things. It was amazing. Only thing I didn't like is that I didn't receive call well ahead only an email around 6 pm on previous day about pick up time which was 1 hour prior to menioned time on the scheduled day.
