Full description

Depart Dubai and journey to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi by modern air-conditioned vehicle. Relax in comfort on the 90-minute drive with your professional guide. On arrival, marvel at the 8th largest mosque in the world. Spread over 30 acres, the magnificent structure took more than a decade to build and now stands as a showcase for the United Arab Emirate’s Islamic cultural heritage. Roam around the site that can accommodate up to 40,000 worshippers at any one time. Marvel at priceless features, such as the huge Swarovski crystal chandeliers, floral mosaics, and artifacts of gold, silver, and marble.

Be amazed by the gigantic carpet in the main prayer hall. Measuring 60,570 square feet and weighing 35 tons, the carpet was made in Iran and is the result of the toil of thousands of carpet weavers over 2 years. Take stunning memorable photos of the complex and its awe-inspiring architecture, and get a better appreciation of the vision of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the late president of the UAE and the mastermind behind the mosque.

This experience was AMAZING. The mosque is absolutely beautiful. The entire experience was so smooth and pleasant. The drivers were prompt and everyone looked after us well. Our tour guide Noor and the driver were both absolutely lovely. Noor shared his wealth of knowledge with us in such a funny, friendly way. Usually I don’t enjoy guided tours but this one was a really nice experience. I would 100% recommended this tour to everyone!!!

One of the must-see things when visiting Dubai or Abu Dhabi! Beautiful building with impressive architecture, not far too travel and the guides are well informed. Our guide (Noor) was able to provide us with a lot of interesting background information and was very helpful in general (in addition to just showing the photo stops).

My sister and I had an amazing time visiting the mosque! The tour was seamless, once we booked I made sure to reach out regarding PCR test questions and they promptly answered me on WhatsApp. The company also reached out the night before confirming the pick up time and friendly reminders about dress code and what to bring. Zeeshan messaged me 25 minutes before arriving the morning off and was very prompt. The drive to and from the mosque was seamless thanks to our captain, and having Zeeshan as our guide was great. He was very kind and shared lots of information with us on the way and at the mosque, not to mention he kindly helped everyone take photos! I highly suggest booking this tour especially if you’re staying in Dubai, this way there is seamless transportation and the company will take care of booking tickets to visit the mosque. Thank you again Zeeshan!
