Abu Dhabi in 12 hours!

by sir_sidney Online Now Feb 2, 2007 at 1:10 PM

Hi!
My friend Lucy and I will be visiting Abu Dhabi for about 12 hours on Saturday 17th February, arriving at 07:00 and leaving at 21:00. We'd like to see something of Abu Dhabi during that time - preferably a half-day desert safari combined with a tour of the city to the heritage villages at Breakwater and the Cultural Foundation, the Women's Handicraft Centre, Al Husn Fort and/or a dhow cruise and a visit to the traditional markets. Neither of us are remotely interested in going shopping. I have made extensive enquiries during the last 8 weeks to try and arrange this but without success. I have received just one email response and that was from an agency which offered us just such a tour, but at over 5 times the rate they offer it for on their own website on the internet.
I'd therefore be really grateful to anyone who can point me in the right direction as to where I can find a taxi driver/travel agency/tour guide/local expert who could give us an informative cultural insight into what Abu Dhabi has to offer at a reasonable price. Hope to hear from somebody soon. Many thanks
Sean

So I am putting together a general answer if we do not know by now, the answer is mute and the future has caught up with the past. I hope to earn guru badges and well as expert badges as I move up in the ranks of my efforts to get rid of all questions to be answer. hope this is a good thing for you and yours and thank you for your reply and tips as I will pursuit this work for a better rating in VT.
