        Karting experience for our 8 year old
        We were at Yas Marina for a Circuit Tour and added a karting experience for our 8 year old while we were there. He went on the smaller juniors track for his first time in a kart and had an absolute blast! Race suits, helmets and karts all in super condition. £20 for his session seemed like good value, I think the bigger track was more expensive but also much longer and more technical. If you’re at the circuit, give the karting a go!

        A must on Things to do in Abu Dhabi .. for adults and kids
        This one experience is out of the world. There is different track for kids and another larger one for adults. We did a kids tour with my son and his friends. They just fell in love and now we do it at least once a month. For tourists its a must , don't miss this opportunity to Go Kart at the Yas marina circuit area. They provide you with full gear, helmets and gloves to ensure you are safe during the drive. After completion of the race we can get our full statistics like number of laps done, maximum speed, minimum speed, minimum time for any lap etc. Its not cheap but it is definitely worth the price. Please prebook on the website to save time at

        Calling F1 fans
        If you’re an F1 fan you have to take the tour of this incredible racetrack. We had an amazing behind the scenes look at what goes into hosting an F1 race. It was a thrill to see the track, the paddock, pit lane and experience the rush of being there. The entire team cannot do enough to accommodate you and greeted us with such friendliness. The team at Yaz are all excited about racing and share not only their enthusiasm but their in-depth knowledge. It was a “bucket list” item for my F1 fan that exceeded expectation. Thank you to the entire team for making it a great and memorable experience!

        Never buy a video of experience (scam)
        Don't buy the video, I pay 210 dirhams and received an one lap, the other driver saw the video and have a lot laps. Probably my camera have some problem because my video beginning at lap 7. That a scan. The experience it's amazing, I will again if have slot available, but never buy a video experience. It's better pay for a cap t shirts but never buy a video.

        Buyer be aware - difficult to get ticket refund - a lengthy process
        Took several months to get a $1k F1 ticket refund. Race track said they would refund my GP ticket; many emails later over 4 months and they said the refund had been made...told me to check with my bank. This was not true - there was no refund. I finally escalated to American Express and they (AmEx) were able to credit my account. After Am Ex's escalation a credit came into my account - 3 - 4 months after they (YSMC) said they executed the credit. In looking back I do not think Yas Marina Circuit ticket office was being honest with me. It took AmEx's efforts, using all the email documentation I had saved, to get YSMC to execute a proper refund. So, buyer be aware.

        Fantastic experience
        My son and I took part in this experience and it was superb. Briefjng was concise but included everything you needed to know. My son is an experienced track driver and I am a novice but the instructors quickly realised this in the car and gave the perfect amount of input for us both. I had the idea that this was a pretty much road Aston Martin but it is so much more than that. It’s a proper race vehicle. We both enjoyed it so much that when we are in Abu Dhabi again we will repeat the experience. Well done to the whole team for an excellent and well organised experience.

        Absolutely not worth trying
        Absolute mess! Nothing much to do, very expensive and above all repetitive technical issue including but not limited to: 1- you pay 150 AED for general admission (75 AED) and 2 vouchers of 35 AED not worth it at all and no one was able to explain the incentive of paying 150 AED for this instead of paying 75 AED and then buy what you want. Worst: the QR code of the vouchers didn’t even work and they don’t have a scanner capable of showing remaining balance! 2- electrical issues in the kids area so all inflatable games and castles went down with kids inside it! The staff said: this happens not a big deal!! Unprofessional organization though the idea/initiative is really good. A pity…

        Disappointing
        Visited Yas Marina Circuit to attend the 2023 Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix weekend. Firstly, I had booked seats in the Main Grandstand for the weekend - Row H. Despite there being a canopy over the grandstand, it actually provides no cover from rows A - H. I’m aware that Abu Dhabi is a hot, sunny country, but if there is a canopy, I think there is a reasonable expectation that it would provide some cover, or that Yas Marina Circuit would advise of the lack of shade so I could have chosen a different seating area. Due to this, my husband and I were unable to safely or comfortably watch FP1, FP3, build up on race day or any of the Formula 2 supporting events. This was a big disappointment to us and we were forced to find shade in the Fanzone for most of the daytime when we were there, which was a total assault on the senses due to various different loud music tracks being played all at the same time on the stage, track and various exhibitor stands. On race day, my husband and I made our way to our seats as the cars started to make their way onto the grid and prior to the national anthem. The main grandstand started to fill up, some people were taking their seats but it became clear that there was a high number of people on the grandstand who weren’t ticket holders and had been allowed up by the volunteers/security at the entrance points to the stand. The non-ticket holders stood across the back of our chairs and on the stairs in between blocks, which resulted in a completely blocked view for those on my seating block. Security completely lost control of the situation. Myself and others missed the start of the race and the majority of the race was disturbed by more non-ticket holders coming up and standing in the way, taking selfies etc. At around lap 20, security did move some people on, but they were allowed to sit in the odd empty seat on the stand and even tried to sit in seats where ticket holders had gone to get a drink or popped to the loo! Towards the end of the race, more non-ticket holders were allowed up onto the grandstand, further blocked the view, even when standing on my chair I missed the end of the race and celebratory doughnuts. A formal complaint was made to Yas Marina Circuit when I returned home, their response has been woeful. A whole bunch of useless wordy back and forth by email between myself and their ‘customer service’ team. Apparently there was an ‘investigation’ by the management but I had no contact with them, the process wasn’t transparent and I’ve been fobbed off left, right and centre. Extremely disappointing response from them. If you are considering attending the grand prix, I would recommend booking seats on a different stand!

        Good but the numbers are wrong
        I liked the cars and the sound but on the Website are lies. The have NEVER 260HP, maximum 120-130hp. My own Formula 4 with 205Hp is so much quicker. Also the drivingtime is not 15 minutes, it is 10-11 Minutes and that is not ok in my opinion. The experience of driving a single seater is great but to be scamed like this is not ok.

        An Unforgettable F1 Experience at Yas Marina
        Attending the F1 event at Yas Marina was an absolute delight! The convenience of free parking and shuttle services made getting to the venue a breeze. The ushers were incredibly helpful, guiding us every step of the way. The entertainment was top-notch, with Shania Twain's performance adding an extra layer of excitement to the event. But the real luxury was experiencing the race from the suite, where we enjoyed unlimited food and drinks throughout the day. Overall, Yas Marina truly knows how to make the F1 experience unforgettable. Can't wait to come back next year! 🏎️🎉 #YasMarina #F1Experience #ShaniaTwain #LuxurySuite

        Once in a lifetime, exciting and FREE!
        We visited the track on a weds evening for TRAINYAS! Omg what an amazing experience… you join a small queue and choose your FREE bike (they have every size both road and hybrid) and they supply FREE helmets too! We cycled the whole of the F1 track starting at the pit lane and as an F1 can I found this to be so exciting. You register online and get a barcode to use. Be there for 5:30-6 and it lasts until about 9:45. You can also walk it too! So well organised… not many things you can do that are so enjoyable for free so I’d highly recommend. We are in adults and a 7 and 10 year old (7 year old is new to cycling but managed it)

      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.

      What was advertised as a 90 minute tour, turned into an over 2 hour tour with about 15 others, with the opportunity to visit the pit lane, garages and pose on the podium. What made the Saturday tour extra special was that there was some racing on. It was thrilling to watch Porches roaring past. Everyone involved was efficient and friendly. But most especially our guide who was brilliant and amusing. I wish I could remember his name. But you know who you are Man with the Beard!.

      If you are into racing, this is a mist do tour. Our tour guide Zeeshan Hameed Niazi was a very knowledgeable guy. Not because he has done this many years but because he knows is al from experience. He has done it all: racing, instructing, safety cars, etc, etc. He has been around and it shows and that is what makes this tour even better. A quick look at the cars is the garage: Ferarri, Alfa Romeo, Porsche, Caterham. Then a look at the circuit at the grand stand in turn #9, follower by a trip to the pits, the pit lane and the pit wall together with a look at the villas. The villas are provided for free to the teams. Then a look at the podium waiting room, the ‘champagne’ bottle and the podium. And as the last activity a drive around the circuit in the buss. An amazing experience and something not to be missed and made extra special by our guise Zeeshab

      A must-do tour for anyone interested in Formula 1. Great value for money, lasted 2 hours and gave lots of behind-the-scenes glimpses. Our tour guide was knowledgable and entertaining and went out of his way to make sure we all had a good experience. Lots of other experiences to do here too from go karting to driving high performance cars.

      My partner and I took the venue tour on 30th September and our guide was Zeeshan. The tour was fantastic, and a real must for any F1 fans visiting Abu Dhabi. Zeeshan was very friendly and knowledge and was happy to answer any questions that we had. As part of the tour you get to visit the pit lane, pit garages and the podium (plus lots more). The tour is reasonably priced and well worth the money.

      An incredible day out at Yas Marina Curcuit for us and our 4 and 8 year old boys. We did the Circuit Tour which gave amazing views of the circuit from the Main and North Grandstand, behind the scenes access to the Pit Lane, Race Control, Team Villas and the F1 Academy. Our guide Ahmed was superb, very knowledgeable and accommodating. A family of 4 for a little over £100, I felt it was a great value day out and a must visit for anyone visiting Abu Dhabi.

      Would 100% recommend a visit and Circuit Tour to anyone!

      Fantastic tour of the circuit with lots of unexpected highlights-lap of the circuit and seeing inside a garage amongst others. Amazing to hear of F1 school educating children at a young age how they can become race engineers of the future. Engaging and interesting tour guide.

      We did the Venue Tour and it was AMAZING! Our guide Zeeshan was much more than a guide. He explained us everything about the circuit and its creation, history and we were able to get to know mor about the backstages of a Motorsport event such as F1. I highly recommend the tour for every motorsport fan visiting abu dhabi/dubai.

      A must visit place. Period!
      Zeeshan is absolutely amazing. A walking wikipedia! I am a huge fan of motorsport, we had very interesting discussions. I also brought my brother and his friend who has no clue about motorsport or Formula 1, and everyone left absolutely ecstatic!
      Since we visited close to the Abu Dhabi GP, some areas were already under preparation for the event. I saw here photos from the situation room and stuff like that, so, hopefully, I will be able to visit and see them with my own eyes.
      A must visit for all, for sure!
