Full description
Explore the fast-changing landscape of Abu Dhabi on a half-day city sightseeing tour with a guide in your chosen language. You’ll visit traditional and contemporary landmarks such as the Grand Mosque and the attractions along the Corniche.

Following a pick-up at your hotel in Abu Dhabi (please note pick-up from Dubai is not possible), you’ll drive to the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, considered the key site for worship in the United Arab Emirates. Marvel at the main features inside and out, such as the inner courtyard and minaret, design motifs of Naskhi, Thuluth and Kufic calligraphy and slender columns reflected in the water.

Then the drive takes you back towards the Persian Gulf, as you admire the modern-day developments along the Abu Dhabi Corniche. Admire some of the world’s most ultra-modern, breathtaking skyscrapers and luxury hotels such as Emirates Palace, facing the pristine beach.

Visit the traditional vegetable, dates and fish markets of Port Zayed, to the northeast of the city. Due to its strategic position in the heart of the city, Port Zayed has been instrumental in bolstering Abu Dhabi’s international trade, and plays a pivotal role in Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030, the government’s drive to achieve economic diversification.

The tour ends with the opportunity to explore Heritage Village for an insight into the traditional side of Abu Dhabi. This reconstructed desert village features handicraft stalls and open workshops.
