This tour included all the highlights as described and showed off Abu Dhabi at it's best. We reached the mosque before the crowds and had plenty of time to explore the Presidential Palace and Etihad
Tower. Also choose a wonderful lunch spot on the Corniche. Our driver/guide was very pleasant, courteous, and efficient. Would heartily recommend.

The entire trip was fantastic, we were a small group and all enjoyed the hospitality, warm friendly eagerness of our guide and the exemplar driving skills of our "Captain"/Tour Van pilot. Mohammed Iqbal was our tour master, he ensures the perfect timing of our visits so as to maximize our experience, as such we avoided the crowd. The grand mosque, palace, and top of Etihad Tower view of Abu Dhabi was memorable to say the least, as well as the sumptuous comfort food from a local restaurant. I am sure the rest of my tourmates were as pleased as I was. We were also lucky that there was good vibe and chemistry among the tour group - the tour company ensured to book like folks - ie all Adults of couple or solo genre - so that there were no family with children that normally boggles down a group that have mostly adult travelers, unlike other companies. Thank you for the great experience, Oceanair and Mohammad and captain.

We took a full day tour from Dubai to Abu Dhabi and were not disappointed. The hotel pick up, the tour bus which took us to Abu Dahbi and back, and especially our tour guide, were all great and the trip was seamless. We saw the Great Mosque, the Presidential Palace and the visit to the observation deck WAY above the City were all worth the time and effort. The traditional lunch was also a nice break and an opportunity to experience some local fare. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and shared his obvious pride in his adopted country throughout our tour. We didn't have to waste time waiting for lines to get into either the Mosque or the Palace. Overall, I'm not sure what we could have done better for our one day opportunity to see Abu Dhabi and get a flavor of this very unique country.

With a short stay in UAE, this was the perfect way to see Abu Dhabi. The pickup at the hotel was on time. Our guide, Osama was very knowledgeable about the places we visited, and communicated very well. His schedule for us was well planned and we had enough time to enjoy the stops.

Very good guide and program, but the lunch at Arabic buffet was terrible! The company should provide other options to his/her customers

The pickup took a while They pick you up at your hotel(on time). On my tour they picked two other stops after ours then stopped and combined us with people from a different area(Dubai has bad traffic). Once out of town pretty smooth going on a 8 lane interstate.The Grand Mosque is beyond words, they then take you up in the Jumeirah Palms 74th floor, great views, A stop for lunch(not provided we had a choice of fast food or a nice local place with a good buffet. The last stop is the royal palace, again beautiful beyond description. If you have a free day in Dubai you must go to Abu Dhabi and see the mosque and the palace.
