FULL REFUND DONE TO EVERY GUEST If you have not got the refund - please read carefully.. It is one of the reason that you may have not done the booking with ABC Tourism. Every day dozens of tourists book Abu Dhabi tour with us(even when border were closed) ... why you alone did not get the refund ??? Do you think those 100's of guest whose bookings cancelled due to few months closure of border of Abu Dhabi due to COVID 19, would sit silently if we have not done the refund????. These negative reviews, readers would not carry with them,instead these unethical people are a curse to humans civilization. It is our open challenge you may please disclose your name or even a date of tour... please send your details we pay your 2 times of than you paid. We spend days to search you...finally found you never booked with us... Always remember these short cuts to damage your competitors would make you out of business... you feed the snake it would get more more strong so that one day it bite you back.... this is principle of the universe - it would never change. One conclusion to this review is answer one among the followings:- 1) You may be a genuine guest booked in the same platform but with another company check your voucher... We are sure it is not ABC Tours. 2) We strongly believe you are our near competitor or an Ex-employee. 3) The story of Guide called etc are fake because ABU DHABI closed its borders... further our guide will not contact you we have just 15 customer service staff only for our ABU DHABI TOUR. why a guide have to contact you... how a guide got your contact.. simply baseless... this is ABC Tourism LLC... we are one of oldest and largest tour operators in Dubai... our guides are trained and through very well their assignments... sorry these stories would only work with those product whose services are provided by the tour guide alone... please place your review at the right place.

Great day out

Great day out, our guide was knowledgeable and fun and the tour was excellent value for money. A great option to get an overview of the city of Abu Dhabi in just a day from Dubai. The highlight was definitely the Sheik Zayed mosque.

Great day trip to Abu Dhabi from Dubai
Jan 2020
Trip from Dubai to Abu Dhabi was on time and very comfortable. Our guide and driver made all effort possible to accommodate individual needs, provided detailed explanations about the city, culture, locations, etc. The Mosque is a MUST SEE destination and it is worth the time spent at it. I would spare a few more days to explore Abu Dhabi, but since we didn't have much time, we were able to cover its main locations in a day trip. Definitely worth it.

Great experience and lots of fun. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to find out more about Abu Dhabi’s culture and heritage but also who wants to visit this splendid city.
