  • Prises en charge directement à notre hôtel à 7h50, après plus d'une heure de mini bus arrivée à la mosquée, ils sont stricte sur les tenues des femmes (vente auprès de notre guide de tenue entière 50 AED), visite agréable, dommage que notre guide était difficile à comprendre en anglais. Plusieurs arrêts à Abu Dhabi, repas dans le mall, retour vers 16h00 à Dubaï.

  • Excursion bien organisée avec un guide sympatoche et qui nous sortait de bonnes anecdotes. La mosquée est magnifique mais les règles y sont assez strictes, veillez à bien en prendre connaissance avant de vous y rendre. La visite du ferrari world et du circuit de f1 est sans intérêt car vous ne pourrez pas y entrer. Le chauffeur s'arrête 5 minutes sur le bord de la route pour prendre des photos inaccessibles car les murs sont trop hauts...
