Overview
Get to know the UAE capital of Abu Dhabi in full, without transport worries and with the benefit of a guide, on this day trip from Dubai. Avoid ticket lines on a tour of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, view all the Abu Dhabi landmarks with ease, and enjoy guided commentary for a more enriching experience than a DIY trip. Plus, get time out midway for a lunch of your choice (own expense).
Highlights
  • Explore Abu Dhabi in a day on a hassle-free trip from Dubai
  • Relax as you travel to the city and see its highlights by deluxe coach
  • Avoid lines at Sheikh Zayed Mosque and learn its history from a guide
  • Entry fees and convenient central Dubai hotel pickup and drop-off included
What to Expect
After hotel pickup in Dubai, venture south by air-conditioned vehicle to Abu Dhabi, hearing about the city's explosive growth on the back of its 1950s oil boom from your guide as you travel. On arrival, enjoy a tour of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the world’s largest mosques. Explore the white marble arcades and courtyards, and visit the prayer room as you hear about the mosque’s design and significance. Continue to Yas Island for photo-ops outside Yas Marina Circuit and Ferrari World, and then drive by the surreal-looking cultural buildings sprouting up on Saadiyat Island. Pass Qasr Al Hosn, a former home of Abu Dhabi’s royals, and after a break for lunch (own expense) at the Mall, see Corniche and Emirates palaces before visiting Heritage Village to learn about the city’s original Bedouin culture. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Dubai.

Fantastic tour seeing Abu Dhabi, getting to know the state. The guide did a great job, which was not easy given we were a group of around 40 with diverse backgrounds and interests. I'll definitely look for the same company if I travel to that area again.
