Full description
Arrive at the guest reception located within the elegant Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club where you will meet your professional pilot and settle aboard your luxury seaplane. Experience the thrill as your plane takes off from the water and enjoy a bird's-eye view as you soar above Dubai. Marvel at the glittering Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest building, see the magnificent Palm Jumeirah islands and sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab rising from the sea. Fly over ‘The World’, the artificial islets shaped like a world map and trace the coast toward Abu Dhabi. 

Your private guide will ready and waiting for you when you arrive at Yas Marina, and together you’ll explore the iconic highlights this city has to offer. Our Discovery Tour is designed by locals, enabling you to get an authentic experience of the city and discover the hidden gems of Abu Dhabi.

You’ll start your sightseeing tour with a visit to the magnificent Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This architectural marvel is the largest mosque in the UAE and can accommodate 40,000 worshippers. It features 82 domes, 1,000 columns, 24-carat gold gilded chandeliers, and the world's largest hand-knotted carpet. Reflective pools surround the mosque, amplifying its beauty.

Pass by the area of Al Bateen, the first populated area in Abu Dhabi, on the way to the Emirates Palace Hotel, another architectural marvel. The hotel is the essence of palatial yet traditional Arabic architecture and is one of the most impressive hotels in Abu Dhabi. It features 114 breathtaking 18-meter-high domes, and ornate hotel rooms and luxury suites decorated in gold and marble.

You’ll have a chance to try the signature Gold Coffee here. Also known as the Palace Cappuccino, this superior blend of aromatic coffee is sprinkled with gold flakes to give you a taste of royalty, making it unlike anything you have ever tried before.

Continue on to Heritage Village, and then along the corniche to Qasr Al Hosn Fort, Abu Dhabi’s symbolic birthplace. Qasr al Hosn began life in the 1760s as a watchtower, made of coral and sea stone, with a commanding position overlooking the sea. It was later transformed into an impenetrable fort.

In the 1950’s an iconic palace was built to enclose the fort, which was transformed into a museum and repository of collections relating to Abu Dhabi and the Gulf.
