Full description

Explore the rich past, vibrant present, and thrilling future of Abu Dhabi on a tour of the largest emirate in the UAE. See key sights like the Corniche and Marina Mall, as well as the Grand Mosque and Al Watan Palace.

After pickup from your hotel in Dubai, travel along the Persian Gulf coast to Abu Dhabi while listening to stories about one of the world’s richest cities.

Visit the majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the most popular landmarks of Abu Dhabi. Admire the mosque’s white marble structure that consists of 82 domes, chandeliers, and flower-patterned designs.

Next, take a drive along the Abu Dhabi Corniche to experience scenic views of the Persian Gulf. Admire the harbor's clean water as you continue to the opulent Emirates Palace, the official hotel of Abu Dhabi’s ruling government.

Then, enjoy a visit to another of Abu Dhabi's landmarks, the Etihad Towers. Those who have seen the ‘Furious 7’ movie will remember the imposing tower.

The next stop will be at the Marina Mall, where you can take a lunch break (at your own expense) and dine at the mall's restaurants or enjoy the food court options.

Afterward, visit the beautiful Qasr Al Watan palace housed in the presidential palace compound of the UAE. Notice the architectural features, artifacts, and other historical treasures of the palace.

It has been one of the best tours ever, perfectly planned, organized and carried out by our amazing guide Haseeb and our marvelous driver Assim (apologies if spelling is incorrect). The Mosque left is in aw, the Etihad Towers took our breath away, the traditional lunch probably added two kg on our scales as it was truly delicious and the Palace stunned us in every possible way. Our guide went above and beyond to provide a five-star experience for us, always giving us extra details off-the-record. Definitely recommend, you can’t miss it!

a great tour, the mosque and the presidential palace are beautiful. Our driver Riz drove us well and safely and our tour guide Robert gave us great information and showed us the best photo points. The lunch break in the restaurant is also recommended, delicious food and a beautiful view.

It was a great day trip to Adu Dhabi. Ramadan was the best guide, he speaks perfect German and told us a lot of interesting things about the country and its people, just in the right dose, very entertaining. We visited the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the Etihad Towers and the Wasr Al Watan Palace - all without queuing. We didn't have to wait, everything went smoothly.
