Get a comprehensive introduction to the glittering city of Abu Dhabi with this full day tour from Dubai. Visit the best the city has to offer and learn all about its rich history.
Abu Dhabi means ‘Father of the Gazelle’ and with a rich history and culture to discover, this full day tour from Dubai will introduce you to the top sites in the UAE capital and the island on which it stands.
Discover one of the largest Mosques in the world, impressive in size and elegance, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque boasts eighty marble domes and a thousand pillars. It can be seen from both bridges as you enter the city and there is no better place to begin your Abu Dhabi education. It is one of few mosques open to visitors between prayer times so that you can admire its impressive interior and well-kept gardens. Then continue on to Heritage Village, a small museum dedicated to daily Arabic life prior to the discovery of oil.
In the afternoon, we drive along the spectacular Corniche, past gleaming white mosques, glass-clad offices and elegant high-rise apartments to the tip of the breakwater for a superb view of the city’s magnificent skyline. The last part of the tour is dedicated to the giant Saadiyat Island project where the Louvre museum and Guggenheim museums are being built to fulfill the image of Abu Dhabi as a cultural city. We finish our sightseeing tour at Yas Island, home to the Formula 1 Yas Marina Circuit, and the first ever Ferrari attraction park in the world.
