We were so excited to go on this tour, but due to all the extreme rules with covid we couldn’t go. We had been to another country in Europe prior and according to Abu Dhabi it wasn’t approved. The man by the name of Mohammed who booked this excursion was well aware of our travels before he booked this excursion. The day of the excursion we were notified that we couldn’t go. We were upset but understood, so like anyone else would do….we requested for a refund. Mohammed gave me the run around for hours and never got back to me. I called him and expressed how upset I was because we weren’t able to attend the excursion for reasons out of our control. He said we couldn’t get a refund so basically he and his company stole $1000 usd from us. I’m furious and still can’t believe this. So please be aware so you don’t get scammed!

3 of us went to AEU for a vacation from California. We had amazing highlights, but this was the greatest.

What a gift to see such an amazing structure. It was truly astonishing to see such beauty.

Upon entry we did have to toe the line with being fully covered as females, but everyone is extremely helpful to explain and show you what is needed. We didn't feel like there was any judgement in not knowing the Islam traditions.

When we got to the entry, the next tour wasn't for another 25 minutes, but they within minutes we had a private tour for just the 3 of us. Our tour guide was named Saeed Alkaaabi, he was just amazing. So informative, easy to listen to and kind. It was all so comfortable, it didn't feel like there was any question that couldn't be asked.

Leave some time to check out the shops upon entry. Nothing is really high end, but just slightly different from the usual.

We were pioneers in traveling post COVID world, so we were nervous about what we could see/do/experience traveling to Abu Dhabi since it had just opened to tourists 2 weeks prior to our visit. The guide and driver were very knowledgeable in crossing from Dubai into Abu Dhabi and what we needed to do at every stop. We got to see all of the sites in Abu Dhabi with a great guide who gave us a lot of background on the history of what we were seeing. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience the capital city and learn about what you're seeing in addition to great photos.

Our tour guide Baher absolutely MADE this trip for us!! He was engaging, funny, knowledgeable - we loved him. He also really paid attention to our interests - one of which was good local Arabic food - and took us to an amazing place, where we had one of the best meals of our lives. The mosque was incredible. Everything was seamless. And Abu Dhabi far exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend!!!

Booked the tour at my hotel with desert gate, smooth easy booking but very obnoxious and fairly rude man booking it for me: he needs to get some personality and friendliness, which will go a long way in helping to sell more tours! I would have booked 3 more tours otherwise. Has put me off for next time. Tour guide knew his stuff and was friendly but he was 1 hour late and then the maximum 15 people wasn’t true as there were over 20. There was more waiting around in the mosque, then an hour in there which was too long. 30 minutes would have been enough, to then be able to see more of Abu Dhabi. Quite possibly the worst tour I’ve ever done, not the tour guides fault but I have done a lot of tours and this was awful!

Dear Piixed5, Thank you for your information. We would like to inform you that we are taking each comment as a valuable feedback to us, and that appropriate action has been taken. The time of the pick up for the sharing tours is approximate as this takes a while to pick up all of the guests, and standard sharing tour has a number of people according to the size of the bus. The tour follows assigned time for each place within the agenda which depends on the group. We do offer private tours if you would like to be more flexible in time and places you visit within the tour. In the future, if you come back to our wonderful city, please contact us again and we can organize some more tours for you. Regards, Akram Hajjar Desert Gate Tourism

Absolutely beautiful mosque 🕌. Regardless of faith it is definitely worth a visit . Women must adhere to the dress code. If you forget , you can borrow a cover up caftan and head scarf. A most stunning place . We went as a tour package . It was very busy , hustled through the prayer room areas.

You have to visit regardless of faith. The craftsmanship is unparalleled. if you are a female you have to cover your hair and males need to wear pants. All attendees make sure not to have tattoos showing. Ohhhhhh, this might come off as strange but the restrooms alone are worth seeing.
