Full description
Explore the rich past, vibrant present and thrilling future of Abu Dhabi on an 8 to 9-hour tour of the largest emirate in the United Arab Emirates. Following pickup from your hotel in Dubai, travel along the Gulf coast to Abu Dhabi, listening to fascinating stories about one of the richest cities in the world along the way. Visit the majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque which is one of the popular landmarks of the Abu Dhabi city. 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 Arabian Gulf. Admire the clean water of the harbor as you continue to the opulent Emirates Palace, the official palace 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 expenses) 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 UAE. Notice the architectural features, historical artifacts and other historical treasures of the palace. Then enjoy the drive back to Dubai, where you will be dropped off.

Please note: Qasr Al Watan may be closed without notice during presidential events, as it is a national palace. In such cases, this visit will be replaced with Qasr Al Hosn or Heritage Village (whichever is available on that day).
