Had a nice time. The mosque was beautiful. Unfortunately the presidential palace was not possible to see due to a special event, but I had a nice time.

We had a good trip to Abu Dhabi. A lot packed in to this one day tour. The mosque was beautiful. Ladies had to wear the full black dress and scarf provided by the company though weirdly we didn't have to take off our shoes. View from the Etihad Tower 74th floor gave a great view

I had an amazing experience with ocean air tours! I did the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the Presidential Palace, Jumeirah Etihad Towers, and ate at a delicious arabic buffet. The buffet was paid separately, but this tour company was done by Ocean air tours. I had an amazing tour

A fantastic day was had by all. If you want to visit Abu Dhabi this is the one to do. ‘The’ mosque, ‘The’ palace, great lunch and a very high building too. Usama the guide was exceptional, great English and even better local knowledge. Good value and highly recommended.

Great day trip. Small group was a plus. Much easier to get into and out of places. Sammi was a good guide. Knew his stuff. Very well organised trip. Well worth it.
