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.

Noor was super nice. Not a single minute was dull because he had interesting facts about nearly every single building in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Fantastic tour guide would definitely recommend the experience of the Qasr Al Watan and the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. Beautiful buildings. My mum is an architect so she thoroughly enjoyed clicking pictures of the domed structures.

The tour was amazing. Our tour guide was absolutely prefect. He's knows alot about the history of Abu Dhabi and knows all the angles on taking pictures. The mosque was absolutely breathtaking. Seeing the place where the fast and furious was filmed and seeing the palace where the 7 presidents of the state meets was perfect. Abu Dhabi was absolutely beautiful. If your in doubt on this tour don't be. You will not be disappointed.

Any Dhabi day tour with Noor! We had an excellent full-day tour with Noor. The pick-up in the morning was prompt and efficient from our hotel at the promised time. Noor was a excellent tour guide with ample knowledge. He did not stop speaking from the start of the tour to the end! But not in an annoying way, he made sure we were all interested and engaged and even gave us some time to nap on our early morning journey to the grand Mosque. I can’t recommend this company enough. One special feature of this tour is that it includes a ticket to the observation deck of Emirates tour in the tour price, which I didn’t even realise prior to booking the tour! The emirates palace was beautiful and Noor ensured none of us would be turned away from the grand Mosque due to our attire - he provided some freshly cleaned abayas and white cloaks for the men free of charge, from the tour company. The best Abu Dhabi tour experience for sure!!
