Overview
Experience Abu Dhabi’s must-sees in a single morning and without the need to arrange your own transportation. Enjoy the Grand Mosque, delve into the Dates Market and Heritage Village to learn about the city’s past, and admire all the main landmarks on a panoramic drive in a half-day city tour. Entrance fees, air-conditioned coach travel, and hotel pickup and drop-off are included for ease and convenience.
What to Expect
After pickup from your Abu Dhabi hotel, set off on your tour by comfortable, climate-controlled coach. As you travel, learn about the city’s past and its 20th-century oil boom—a time that triggered its transformation from a humble port to today's metropolis.

Visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the world’s largest and Abu Dhabi’s modern showpiece. Explore the white-marble courtyards of the complex and learn how it can accommodate up to 40,000 worshippers.

Next, stroll around the souk to browse the gold shops before diving into the Dates Market to see and sample some of the many varieties of dates on offer.

Drive along the Corniche to admire the skyscrapers and beaches on each side, and visit Heritage Village, an outdoor museum celebrating Abu Dhabi’s Bedouin heritage. Watch craft demos and check out the museum, replica village, and falaj irrigation channels before finishing with a hotel drop-off.
