The mosque is amazingly beautiful. The design, tiling and style fantastic. Our guide Usama was charming, friendly, very knowledgeable and extremely patient when 2 guests arrived 20 minutes late ato departure time. We highly recommend Usama and this tour. Thank you.

Abu Dhabi Mosque tour

I'm only giving this tour a 3* due to our guide. The tour content itself was great and the company of the other four people was also great. Sadly the tour guide was so disinterested in enhancing our experience. We really felt he couldn't be bothered. When we asked questions he gave short answers. We were given a choice of where to go for lunch and we all chose to go to a local mall. Having been told we had 1.5hrs lunch, which was more than adequate, the tour guide at some stage extended the stop for another 30 minutes, we were all left waiting for him. Only one of the party picked up the wattsapp message. Once we had been to our last stop, The Presidents palace, as far as the tour guide was concerned, his job was done. It was an awkward and very fast max speed 140km drive back to Dubai. No conversation !!! The tour content could not be faulted but the experience was poor due to the guides lack of interest or bad mood

We had such a great day!! Our guide Latif was amazing - so friendly and knowledgable. It makes such a difference when your guide appears genuinely interested in the content he is speaking about. So happy to highly recommend this tour to people travelling to Dubai and hopefully you are lucky to have Latif to show you around the mosque.

It was a great small-group tour hosted by Zeeshan. He was awesome and gave me so much attention because I was a solo traveler. He showed me all of the best photo spots and gave me so much information along the tour. Our group had some very rude travelers and he didn’t let it bother him! Would definitely recommend this trip for any Dubai visitors. The Mosque is beautiful!

Noor was my guide and he was BRILLIANT! The journey there & back was smooth. He had water which was lovely and was able to provide information about Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the journey there & back. At the mosque he was attentive, gave us lots of information in an easy way, and was great at taking really good pictures. I’ve recommended this tour, and Noor to a few friends who are heading to Dubai this year, he was brilliant.

The tour was great, pick up was a little delayed. However, access to the mosque was easy & the guide through out was good. But we paid for photo option but never received the photos!!!
