It was one hour amazing trip with a very beautiful skyline of the city, the Lulu island. The guide Lahiru gave us important information about Abu Dhabi, took nice picture of us in key photo stop places, and the captain Tharaka thrilled us with his boat flying above the waves of the persian golf, while we admired the sunset! I do recommend them and the trip! I would definately do it again and again.

Amazing tour! So, pleased we did it. Tour guide was great! Such great information - but not too much talking. Just perfect. Was able to enjoy the views etc and still receive the right amount of information. Driver was also great. Very friendly, welcoming and respectful.

Thank you for a fun trip. And for kindly letting us know it might be rough water so our little ones didn’t go. The big kids loved it. We had to wait for a taxi so for future travellers not staying at the palace you might want to book a return taxi to meet you at the gate you came in. Otherwise a really fun trip!
