We booked our Viator tour and were most satisfied. It is a process getting picked up at your hotel but we made it and headed for Abu Dhabi. There were 16 passengers on this day. Our guide for the day was Hend. She gave us a very entertaining overview of what we would be seeing and then gave us a cultural education that was enlightening and she presented it in a very sensitive way, explaining about the Mosque we were visiting and the beliefs of Islam. I was impressed!
The Sheikh Zayed Mosque is stunningly beautiful and our visit there was wonderful. As a woman I was required to wear an abaya which was provided by Hend. Her willingness to share her knowledge was helpful.
The Heritage village was so interesting and Hend was able to get us into a very busy restaurant right away....it was very good.
This tour is a must...we thought we knew the UAE from a previous visit but it took Hend to teach us about the history and politics of the country....Abu Dhabi is very different from Dubai and it was necessary to visit Abu Dhabi to get the real picture of this fascinating countryMore
