Great 90 minute RIB tour, with fabulous views of the Emirates Palace, the Etihad Towers, the Presidential Palace, and the Sheikh Zayed Mosque from the water. Daniel, our skipper, was great fun, and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this trip for anyone visiting Abu Dhabi.

Fantastic way to appreciate the buildings of Abu Dhabi. Skipper Daniel was great. High speed thrills on the canal stopping for some great photos enroute.

Daniel was our driver/ guide. Super friendly and very knowledgable. Well worth it. The only downside it was a little difficult to find on the Marina and my taxi driver didn't know where to go, but this did not impact on the experience.
