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.

Our tour of the Mosque was so informative. Our tour guide Faison was very knowledgeable and engaging that we were soaking up every word we could about the history of the Mosque and Islamic religion. We had an amazing experience and a great group. Definitely recommend it. Also we booked at 1am in the morning and was picked up at 815am no issues.

Whenever we visit another country for the first time we love to use GetYourGuide Tours. Our guide Feisal for the Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Mosque tour was phenomenal!
