Awful! The bus' AC broke down with a temperature of 115 degrees! We were dumped at a mall for about hour and a half while the bus driver went to get another bus. We had a very brief stop at Ferrari Word but a couple of women on the tour went on a shopping spree and we had to wait an extra hour for them! The driver was incredible incompetent as to how to find those women. I've taken many and I mean many tours before where the driver warns you that if you're not on the bus by certain time, that it, the bus leaves you--and they've done it! These were the same two women that had some kind of issue entering the Great Mosque of Abu Dhabi as well, which also slowed us up even more. That took some of our valuable time to enjoy the mosque even more. The only thing that saves this tour is the mosque, hands down. The Great Mosque of Abu Dhabi is a site no one should miss while in the UAE. Abu Dhabi, as a city, is not at all like Dubai. It seems drab and void of charm, except for the mosque. In the end, if you're able to rent a car in Dubai to go see the mosque on your own do it and save some money--and plenty of your valuable time!

The tour was everything we expected it to be and more! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about the history and culture of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Our first stop was at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque - what an experience it was! The design, the furnishings, the chandeliers, the list just goes on and on! A definite must-see!
We also visited the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village, drove through the city to admire Abu Dhabis glass skyscrapers, the palm-lined Corniche and stopped outside the Emirates Palace hotel to take some pictures. Another highlight of the tour was visiting Ferrari World. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it!

It was a very interesting ride from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. i really want to commend our guide and driver. He came on time and very patient by explaining the things we do not understand. If u are therefore, going for this trip, ask for Magdi. You will enjoy the ride.

I rarely write a bad review on Viator because most of the tours we go on are top notch and very professional, but this tour was definitely disappointing. Abu Dhabi is a must see, as is the mosque, so you should plan a trip to see it. However, what they don't tell you is how sensitive the trip can be to inclement weather, so it may make sense to plan/book the trip once you get there. We chose a day that it rained and because of that we were denied access to the prayer room, which is really the most impressive part of the mosque. On top of that disappointment, we also felt our tour guide was at times apathetic and at other times down right contentious or dismissive with the group and questions we asked. Overall, really was disappointing, but Abu Dhabi is worth the trip, so maybe find another tour company to do it with, or just rent a car yourself!

Our tour was fantastic. I would highly recommend doing this tour, and looking to learn many details that you may not already know. The mosque is great. I would give this tour a whirl for sure.

Collected from the hotel and joined others for this day tour of Abu Dhabi from Dubai. Visited the Ferrari World mainly for the rest room.
It did have a roller-coaster but it was for shopping as this was during Ramadan. Took photos of the Emirates Palace Hotel but with restrictions. Dropped off at the Mall for lunch but it wasn't opened and we were there for about 45 mins quite disappointing. The highlight of the tour was the visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque where the chandeliers were breath taking. For the price, I was
truly disappointed.
