What to expect

Are you in Dubai on holiday and want to discover the city of Abu Dhabi as well? Then this private Abu Dhabi city tour is a great choice! You will be picked up from your Dubai hotel and head to Abu Dhabi. After approximately a 2-hour drive you will reach the first stop: the Ferrari World where you can stop for pictures.

Next up is the impressive Sheikh Zayed Mosque which you can also visit inside. This is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and the eighth largest in the world. You will be amazed not only by the size of the mosque, which can accommodate over 40,000 worshippers, but also for its architectural features. It was built with fine white marble and has intricate decorations painted. The mosque is named after the founder and first president of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Afterwards, you will stop for a visit to the Heritage Village where you'll learn about the country's culture and traditions, and learn about its history before the Emirates discovered oil. Finally, you will witness a new cultural landmark in Abu Dhabi - Qasr Al Watan where you will learn about the country’s governing traditions and values, and explore a well-preserved legacy of knowledge, thus boosting cultural understanding of the UAE. Then you'll drive through the Abu Dhabi Corniche and you will have some time to wander around the Marina Mall.
