Since I flew to the United Arab Emirates on the tour (following the link my review of the tour) and time was short, it was decided to take 2 sightseeing tours: in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. So you can get a general idea of Emirates in a short time.
I will definitely come back here on my own (and maybe again with tour) and in more detail and thoughtfully inspect some attractions. And now about the tour.

About the tour
All tours in the UAE begin after 11.00 and end late in the evening, at 22.00 – 23.00 hours. And this is not by chance. To not to waste time in traffic jams and not to irritate tourists, excursions planned so as not to get into the morning and evening traffic jams, and we appreciated it.
Buses are comfortable, good review, guides Russian speaking and well prepared. None of our question remained unanswered.
So, the tour of Abu Dhabi is perfectly organized – never stood in traffic jams. Guides are great! Give a lot of information not only historical, but also about the traditions and lifestyle of the local population, the rules of behavior of guests of the country. In the bus cool and there is complimentary bottled water at 0.5 liters.
Of course, a lot of information for one day. But now I I have an idea about the capital of the UAE and you can plan the following trip to Abu Dhabi.
The price of a sightseeing tour of Abu Dhabi – $ 55 from the tour operator AnexTour, was purchased from a hotel guide. And the tour was buying from Travelata, so the cheapest thing came out (my instruction is how to buy).
For the first trip, in my opinion, the most suitable exactly sightseeing tours to see at once some of the most basic facilities for 1 day and see the city. But then it already makes sense or take unusual trips on Thripster, or on your own visit this or that place of interest.
Abu Dhabi is the capital of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Total emirates seven: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ajman, Sharjah, Umm al-Quwain, Ras al-Khaimah and Fujairah.
The largest and richest emirate is Abu Dhabi. He takes 85% of the entire territory of the Emirates, and more than 90% of oil are also on the territory of this emirate. But what is interesting is that Most of the territory of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi is desert! Can say that all life is focused on the Persian coast the gulf.
The state in its present form is less than 50 years old; it was created on December 2. 1971 In general, the history of this state is unique, for 50 years traversed from the Bedouin tribes to the developed state with highest standard of living.
Historical ethnographic village
What was the life of the indigenous people of the UAE before the discovery of oil, we saw in the Historical and Ethnographic Village (Heritage Village). She is located on the Corniche Breakwater manmade spit.
There is a small museum on the territory of the Heritage Village. And judging by old photos of non-life Bedouin tribes in the desert was rather miserable. Huts from palm leaves, canopies from sheep skins, buildings made of clay and pieces of cloth or twigs — But on coast locals involved in mining and trade pearls, there were people more affluent.
Here you can see the boats on which catchers floated. Pearls. Also in the museum are presented household items, weapons, decorations.
On the way out of Abu Dhabi we drove through the Mangrove Reserve. how nature has created such a miracle, a green oasis in the desert, remains mystery.The territory is guarded by the state, but to get there can be with a guided tour.
