About

Tour the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, see the Emirates Towers. Enjoy a small-group atmosphere, with entrance fees and Dubai hotel or central pickup and drop-off included.

Amazing trip!
Everything was so perfect. The guide picked us up on time and he was extremely nice and patient and explained cool facts on the way to Abu Dhabi. We visited the Grand Mosque, Qasr AlWatan and he even arranged a surprise visit to the observation deck at 300 which was so amazing and we got to see pretty much of Abu Dhabi from the top! 100% recommend! Also Mohammed’s Spanish is a native level so we didn’t have any trouble at understanding everything he was telling us plus he takes the best pictures ever!

Great trip to some of the Iconic buildings in Abu Dhabi.
We had a great trip, with Ziad as our guide. It was fast paced - but still with time to take various Photos and get to know some of the stories these buildings has.
Definately recommended.

Wonderful tour with Mohammed Ali tour Abu Dhabi
Nov 2021 • Solo
The tour to Abu Dhabi was amazing. One of the best tour I did during my stay. Mohammed Ali was great, he arrived on time for the pick up. Very bright guide, always smiling and enthusiastic. We learn more about Dubai and Abu Dhabi on our way to the mosque. He gave me a beautiful Abaya to wear in the mosque and provided water when needed. As a solo traveler I could count on Mohammed Ali to take great pictures. In fact every person on the tour could. He knew the best spots to make pictures. Besides this tour, he also gave tips for the expo 2020. I would definitely recommend this trip with Mohammed Ali. He is a very warm person!

Abu Dhabi trip
Mohamed Ali was very nice , he knew a lot about the place but I would prefered the moschee tour to be with explanations on site not on the bus.

Also, to make this tour a 5 star it would have been nice to have a traditional lunch included instead of 1h at the mall...

But the tour guide was more then well prepared, sociable , willing to answer all our questions.

So 5 stars for Mohamed Ali! 🤗
