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.

Then enjoy the drive back to Dubai, where you will be dropped off.

This was really an amazing tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it. I would definitely ask about the need for a negative PCR test, so that you can save your money. Our tests in the US are no longer covered and cost $100+ at Walgreens. We took the test, but were never asked to see the results. Our guide, Hassan, was great. Super knowledgable and he kept our energy up throughout a pretty long day (9 hours). Definitely worth taking a day trip to Abu Dhabi if you are visiting Dubai.

Our tour guide Haseeb was friendly, professional, keen and knowledgeable. The day was well planned and we kept to the timings. The communication between the tour guide and us was also helpful in ensuring timing was kept before the scheduled tour. I will definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to do a day’s tour of Abu Dhabi.

Everything organized perfectly from the moment of departure from the hotel to the return. The stages are beautiful, from the White Mosque to the Royal Palace to the climb to the Ethiad Towers. The restaurant chosen for lunch is excellent. Lastly ... amazing our guide and "paparazzo" Paolo who made the day wonderful!
