When in UAE for short time, I love to visit the capital Abu Dhabi, and one of the quickest way to do it is through booking the Abu Dhabi City tour, and Thrillophilia came to the rescue again! We were comfortably picked up from our hotel and then joined the bus for the sightseeing. The smooth ride around this well-maintained city itself was entertaining. Then came the main attractions such the beautiful pearly white Grand Mosque which had a spiritual vibe about it of course, then the centre of luxury the great Emirates Palace, followed by YAS island, the Ferrari World and our favourites the Abu Dhabi Museum and Heritage Village. We got to learn so much about this city, its culture and where the locals socialise. It was insightful and totally worth it. Highly recommended for an in-depth experience of this great city.
