Sadik, our tour guide took us to vantage points to capture AD’s skyline, Heritage Village, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Louvre, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Emirates Palace. Because he wanted to showcase a lot of what AD had to offer, we may have overstayed our many mini stop overs (ie. shopping, sight seeing) - Sadik was patient and accommodating. He always made sure we were hydrated (ie. kept offering bottles of water) during our trip. His car is spacious and clean - comfortable. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, safe and fun tour guide, we highly recommend Sadik 👍🏻. Thanks, Sadik for an amazing day tour to AD - we can’t wait to comeback for another trip!
