The tour is amazing. At first me and my wife consider that having a good guide is essencial to any tour. In our tour we had an excellent English speaker guide (Mohammad Iqbal) and showed us a lot about Abu Dhabi, the tour stops and what we were supposed to do. The mosque is amazing, and the guide helped us to not be part of the crowd. After that we went to the palace, which was incredible aswell. We had lunch (Arab buffet) excellent. Since the tour company does not claim for commissions, our lunch was 15 AEDs cheaper per person. Then we went to Etihad Towers. Plenty time to take photos, walking and appreciating everything.
