We did a 1/2 day tour through Abu Dhabi with Shabeer Parakunath. He did an excellent job and provided so much information. We really enjoyed the experience. From the pick up he was friendly and helpful. Our first stop was the Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque. It is so beautiful there. We went through all the security and ticket checks without any problem. There after we drove to Yas Island and stopped at the F1 racing course and drove past the waterpark and Louvre. Next stop was the date market. Dates were so fresh. Last stop was the heritage village. This also had more of a touristy feel, but was still interesting to see. From all our experiences in Abu Dhabi, this was the best. Thank you again Shabeer.

A must do experience.

This is the perfect introduction to the history and culture of abu Dhabi. I was guided through the grand mosque learning about its history and materials. My guide linked the core values of emirates as we travelled to the sheik zayeds museum, the heritage village and the date market Abdul is a no. 1 guide.

Ein sehr schöner Ausflug in einem klimatisierten Kleinbus. Unser deutschsprachiger Reiseführer brachte uns zuerst in die Moschee Zayid. Eine der schönsten Moscheen, die muss man sich ansehen, wenn man in Abu Dhabi ist. Anschließend fuhren wir weiter zu einem Beduinendorf, das wir eine halbe Stunde besichtigen konnten, zwischendurch durften wir noch an verschiedenen Sehenswürdigkeiten Fotos machen und zu guter letzt waren in einem kleinen Dattelgeschäft und durften dort leckere Datteln probieren und kaufen. Dort gab es auch einen Gemüsemarkt. Wir haben uns 1kg leckere Tomaten für 2 Dirham gekauft. Unser Guide war ein sehr freundlicher und lustiger Reiseführer, der jederzeit zu empfehlen ist. Sein Name ist Sudath Manodara.
