My DH and I will be in Abu Dhabi second week of May for 2 weeks to a month looking for accomodation. We are looking for a reliable and good emirate driver to take us around Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
We were there for a week at the end of March. The driver we hired was terrible. I don't think he can read at all. We spent over an hour at the Dubai Airport making circles finally I had to tell him where to go. He also would not find his way around Abu Dhabi. We got lost all the time and he had to ask other taxi drivers for directions while he was driving. All he did was complaining how little he got paid everyday. There got to be a better driver out there in Abu Dhabi. We paid the company AED$500 per day for a mid-size car with a driver for a week. I also tipped the driver AED$50 per day even though he did not deserve it. Many times, I wanted to get off his car and just get into a taxi. But I was told it was very difficult to get a taxi during the rush hours.
Thank you in advance.
