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.

We had an amazing experience! The agency was un Comunicacion with me since couple days before making sure we had all the papers we needed go to the tour (passport, vaccine proof and pcr test). Ziad our driver and guide was in Comunicacion with me since the day before to be sure we were all set and the day of the tour he was there to pick up us perfectly on time. The agency lent me an Abadaya (the long dress I needed for the Mosque) free of charge and Ziad explained a lot about the Emirates and the Muslim religion on the way which made the road very interesting. Arriving in the Mosque was easy, he knew his way and had everything in order. Inside the Mosque gave us the full explanation and took us super nice pictures! Helped arranging lunch for us in a very good place (not the typical tourist trap!). Everything he showed us was amazing and he is really knowledgeable and kind, he kept offering us cold water all the time, which was highly appreciated with the very hot weather! Highly recom

I am so happy I booked this tour to Abu Dhabi! Ziad was an outstanding guide. He went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and to ensure that this tour was exactly what we were looking for. The tours of the Grand Mosque and the Presidential Palace were amazing and not to be missed if you are in this area!! Ziad was always available to take pictures for us and to explain the history and details of what we were seeing. I am very grateful to have had this very high quality tour! I recommend it to everyone.
