My tour was with OceanAir Travels with Zeekesh and he was a fantastic tour guide. We went to Louvre Museum first where we had 2 hours to look around. Then after that, we had the choice to have lunch downtown Abu Dhabi. Zeekesh pointed out every landmark and building and gave us a good history, which I enjoyed. Lastly, we went to the Grand Mosque where he provided us with caftan dresses to be covered up. It turns out, He is also a great photographer and I have amazing photos on this tour because of him! He was great and the tour was great! I'd definitely do it all over again.

Had the best time with Momen and OceanAir team. On the way to the mosque Momen gave us a lot of information about main monuments and city areas. The mosque was beautiful and really worth the visit. Louvre was full of interesting art and ancient objects. The OceanAir team was really helpful and kind. Previous to the visit they kept in contact with all details we needed before our visit. During the visit they took great pictures for us.

Our guide Noor was excellent, friendly and efficient. He was super helpful at the Grand Mosque, making us feel comfortable and informed about this amazing place. It was truly awesome. The Louvre was great too. We could have spent a little longer there to take into account getting a bite to eat, but overall it was a really good tour. It was relaxing and interesting thanks to Noor.
