Poor Customer Service
Mar 2020
I bought a voucher in 2019 and due to Covid was unable to use it. I used the contact form online to extend the voucher but didn't receive a response. My friend in Abu Dhabi called them and they said that I would need to e-mail them to extend the voucher. I did and I still haven't heard back. VERY disappointing and poor customer service. As it is such an uncertain time and that it was due to circumstances beyond my control (global pandemic!!) you would hope that there would be some understanding on their side.

My first F1 circuit
We went with friends on the small group tour with online reservations made through their site. The reservation was quite hard to accomplish as the site rejected the transaction several times, but finally we achieved to buy the tickets. It's worth going this route because the tour is open for public only 2 or 3 days during the week when the track is not occupied and demand can be high.

It costs arund 90 AED, so not expensive at all and it is well worth it. You get a tour with a mini bus of about an hour and half with a funny guide whom himself is a racing driver.

Lots of interesting information during the tour and several stops such as the hairpin tribune before the longest straight on the F1 calendar, the pits, the start/finish straight, the team villas, track command room, podium and on lucky days such as ours when the track is free you will also do a lap of the track with the minibus.

All in all, it's a great experience for F1 fans and the guide is super nice and answering all your questions with great sense of humor and lots of information.

You can try some driver experiences as well which are listed on the website, but we unfortunately didn't have the time for these as well, so I cannot say much about them.

A Must-Visit on Yas Island
Mar 2020
We booked the tour online before we travelled to Abu Dhabi. The tour was definitely worth it and takes you all over the circuit. The tour guide did a lot of 'you don't usually get to go here but I have approval just for today' which obviously wasn't the case but did make us laugh.

We happened to be driving by the circuit the night before the tour and saw it was lit up so went in to see if there was any racing on. The security directed us to the pits and we were able to go through track-side and see some of the most incredible cars racing round the track. I'd definitely recommend trying to go and see one of the public racing sessions - it was free to go and watch also which was a bonus!

Amazing time at the venue tour and TrainYAS event
Mar 2020
We enjoyed the Yas Marina Circuit two days in the row. We started with the TrainYAS event Tuesday evening, where we did a track walk - which was absolutely fantastic and nicely organised. On Wednesday we participated in a great venue tour with a super nice and educated tour guide, showing us around the venue. I can absolutely recommend the beautiful track and its offers!

Tour with a guide
Feb 2020
We had 90 mins tour with the guide. Price for 2 kids+2 adults was 100EUR. My husband liked it a lot as he is a big fan of F1 kids (6 and 9 years) also didn't get bored :) Tour was in English language, guide told a lot interesting and funny details.

Absolutely brilliant behind the scenes tour
Feb 2020
OK, I'll admit it, I'm a big F1 fan, but my wife isn't. Nevertheless, she agreed to come with me on The Yas Marina Circuit Tour and she thoroughly enjoyed it.

We took a taxi from our hotel on Saadiyat Island to the circuit and on arrival were promptly checked in and given our wrist bands for the tour. Whilst waiting for the tour to start, you can watch people taking cars around a part of the circuit which adds to the ambience with the roar of the engines.

Once the tour started we were introduced to our guide, Zishaan who is a racing driver as well as being and exceptional guide.

He asked a question about the circuit which I was fortunate to get right. That gave me the opportunity to be drifted around turns 5, 6 and 7 for 3 laps whilst the rest of the group watched.

Then we hopped onto the bus and were driven around the circuit and given behind the scenes access to areas that you wouldn't see on a normal race weekend. Views from the grandstands, access into the garages, access to the pit wall, standing on the start/finish line, access to the team hospitality areas, access to race control, standing on the podium and a drive around the full F1 track in the bus.

An absolutely brilliant tour that took 2 hours, is phenomenal value for money at around £28 per person and provides an unprecedented level of access around the Yas Marina circuit.

I was beaming from ear to ear for the whole 2 hours and my wife thoroughly enjoyed it as well. She's even talking about booking to come back for the 2020 F1 race in November.. Here's hoping...

FANTASTIC TOUR
Feb 2020
My husband loves F1, I'm not so bothered so we went on the tour, was about £28 per ticket and we booked last minute. We arrived at Yas Circuit for 2pm start, our tour guide was great, really nice chap who clearly knew his stuff, they take you on a mini bus around the circuit area, we went into the Grandstand Northside, we went inside the live Control Room, we went to watch drag cars competing on a different track and then we actually went in one of the Team Villas which is inbetween the Circuit and the Marina followed by an actual ride around the Circuit in the minibus - we even got to stand on the podium - for someone who really isn't fussed for F1 it was FANTASTIC, I would definitely recommend it. There is also a free shuttle bus from Ferrari World/Mall to the Circuit and back again - there are plenty of taxis at the Mall/Ferrari World to take you on your onward journey. Honestly best £28 I've ever spent and many thanks to Mohammed our Tour Guide who was great fun.
