What an awesome day! Picked up curbside right on time. The mosque was stunning! We had plenty of time and were not rushed at all. Then had lunch before going to the observation floor of the Eithard Towers. Our guide was so full of information. Was very personable and a wonderful host with a personality to match.

Interesting excursion with visit to beautiful places. It is worth booking this excursion. Unfortunately the guide / driver arrived more than half an hour late in the morning and the visits were made at full speed. No time to take pictures of the Ethiad Towers from the outside, little time to eat at noon and little explanation at the mosque, just short stops to take photos. The comeback looked like a chase, with right passing, fish tails and speeding all the time.
