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.

Mohammad Iqbal was outstanding. His vast knowledge made the experience all that much better. He was friendly and more than happy to answer any of our multiple questions. He provided us with easy to follow advice to make our experience that much more enjoyable he gave us constant reminders about our belongings so we didn’t forget anything. He was happy to take as many photographs of us and his photography skills were really good. The tour was very well planned and you could see he just had such a passion for his role and the city of Abu Dhabi. His humour and people skills were to be admired. Great experience overall would highly recommend him.

I highly recommend this experience ... in the morning we were accompanied to the bus, where we met our guide, Mahammad Iqbal, very nice and helpful, who on the way to the mosque showed us the route, revealing many curiosities about Dubai and Abu Dhabi . Arriving at the mosque they provided us with the right clothes to enter it. The mosque was huge, inside there was a huge carpet and chandeliers made of special crystals and swarovski. The next visit was dedicated to the Etihad Towers, the view was breathtaking and the guide told us the history of the sultans. After we ate thanks to a buffet typical of the area. As a last stop we went to the Presidential Palace, an incredible structure: very decorated and detailed. The guide took some great pictures of us. The palace was huge and it was lovely. Finally we were taken back to our residence.
