Abu Dhabi half day city tour with Imran.
, Mar 2020
We had a great tour with our knowledgable, pleasant and easy going guide Muhammad Imran Khan. We had plenty of time to explore all the attractions visited, like the impressive Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the view from 300 metres in the Etihad towers, the Corniche and the Presidential Palace (with music corps). We highly recommend this tour.

Usama was our tour guide for the Abu Dhabi city tour. He picked us up at the cruise terminal right on time. He gave us a lot of information about the city and the Grand Mosque is so beautiful which is a must to see.

Don’t Miss This Tour
, Mar 2020
Excellent tour. One of the best during the 3-week cruise. The mosque and working palace are truly impressive in Abu Dhabi. Do not miss this tour. It is a “wow” experience. The guide was very good and easy to understand. He was also very patient and not the “pushy” type we found in many tours. Thanks for the experience.
wonderful tour!
, Feb 2020
We visited all the places on the list! Knowledgeable guide. He picked up us at our cruise port on time and and took us back to the port after the tour. Everything was going smoothly and on time. Enjoyable day! Highly recomand to everybody!

Our guide, Shakil, was polite and knowledgeable. Very enjoyable. Time permitting, a drive through the city Center or spending some time in a souk might be useful too?
Fun and informative tour of Abu Dhabi
, Feb 2020
Very interesting and well organised tour which we completed while on a cruise ship stop in Abu Dhabi. We were collected and returned to the cruise port. Imran was an excellent guide and gave us lots of information and encouraged us to ask questions. We enjoyed all the stops at the mosque, tower and the palace as well as some stops for photo opportunities, with plenty time at each location. We would highly recommend this tour.
Excellent city tour

All 3 attractions on the tour were well worth visiting. Our guide Shakil was very knowledgeable and friendly. A very enjoyable tour in the company of two other friendly couples.
See a lot in a short time.
