The tour guide , Mr Haseeb made it worthwhile. From the beginning of the day to the end. He kept asking if we were ok. He helped and guided us on the right angles to take pictures effectively.
While in the Grand Sheik Mosque, my son fell ill without warning and I had to seperate from the group. He waited and also asked if we needed medical attention.
He is quite polite.
Thank you Mr Haseeb, thank you Ocean Air, thank you TripAdvisor.☺️
Excellent Tour Experience in Abu Dhabi

Excellent tour experience. Full day to Grand Mosque and Louvre Museum in Abu Dhabi. Hotel pick up was flawless (early) and our tour guide Ziad was most helpful at every stage. Constant communication through WhatsApp made for a great experience. Ziad assisted all guest with great photos and helpful information. There was an unplanned lunch stop. My only criticism would be quality of food was average but it had some traditional Arabic choices. Overall this was a very good tour package from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Safe, professional and good value. Recommend by this expat.

Zee was wonderful!
Zee was friendly and knowledgeable! We had an amazing experience and would recommend this excursion to everyone
See another side of the UAE
Definitely worth the trip if you have the time. The mosque was breathtaking - absolutely massive with interesting detail. The Louvre was also great with unique architecture and plenty to see. Even the lunch was excellent. If you get the choice, definitely choose the restaurant rather than fast food - it's buffet style and quite authentic and tasty. Our guide (the Egyptian guide Elshemy) was awesome and made the entire trip fun but still educational. Definitely recommend this experience!
Beautiful and educational tour
It was a wonderful opportunity to see Abu Dhabi area and to visit the Grand Mosque and of course the Louvre museum.
Abu Dhabi visit in good hands with Ziad
I recently visited Abu Dhabi and had the pleasure of having Ziad as our guide for a tour of the Louvre and Great Mosque. From the moment I met him, I knew I was in good hands. His knowledge of the city's history and culture was impressive and he was able to provide valuable insights throughout the tour.
Ziad was also very personable and made the experience enjoyable for everyone in our group. He was patient with our questions and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time.
The Great Mosque was the highlight of the tour, and Ziad was able to provide a detailed explanation of its architectural and cultural significance. It was truly a breathtaking experience and one that I will never forget.
Overall, I highly recommend booking a tour with Ziad if you are visiting Abu Dhabi. He is an exceptional guide and made our trip truly memorable. Thank you, Ziad, for an unforgettable experience!
