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.

The tour guide was very nice, however I am no certain that I would recommend this tour as a solo traveler. With groups sometimes you get behind and you can’t hear everything that the guide is teaching. I really enjoyed the conversation that he lead on the bus. Secondly make sure that your abaya is dark enough. Thankfully they loaned to us. It was very HOT so not recommend touring in September. Shoes, please wear comfy sandals or nice comfy sneakers that will grip the floors as they are somewhat slippery (I didn’t know that we could wear open toe shoes) I wore terrible flats. Next save your battery for the palace! It was BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL!! Abu Dhabi itself is stunning. The restaurant that the guide recommended was very very good!! Not very expensive. You may use your card no need to exchange money. The entrance process was smooth. Ladies do not bring big bags it will only get in the way. There was a gorgeous purse that matched my abaya in one of the stores at check in. :)

Unforgettable day at ABU DHABI. Beautiful tour with the Guide Stefano who assisted us in an exemplary way at all times, telling us in detail every place visited. The mosque is fantastic. Imperious and imposing gives the idea of the immensity of this nation. We also visited the Etihad towers with a breathtaking overview of the city. For lunch we had lunch in an excellent restaurant. Finally we visited the super luxurious presidential palace. Stefano was Fantastic in every moment of our visit. Very friendly and nice person made our day even more enjoyable.

Amazing tour guide - had a great day. Although, the middle Eastern restaurant that was recommended was probably the worst food we've ever had. So please avoid the restaurant or try the Indian restaurant - other than that, Noor was a great tour guide and took amazing pictures of us!
