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: Women must wear long, loose clothing and ensure that their arms, legs, and heads are covered at all times. An abaya with scarf (long black attire) may be borrowed from the tour operator. Men must not reveal any skin above the knees and their shoulders must be covered. Failure to do so may result in refused entry. Please note that no clothing will be provided to men. Qasr Al Watan may be closed without notice during presidential events, as it is a national palace.

    Our Tour Guide Saddam was very knowledgeable about the UAE. He made the difference with his quirky jokes. He knew a lot about Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Qasr Al Watan. Lunch is not included however we went to a lovely buffet restaurant overlooking the Corniche beach. All in all it was a great experience, however it did feel a little rushed at times...
