We really enjoyed visiting the Sheikh Zayed Mosque as part of our city tour of Abu Dhabi!

We opted to do a FREE guided tour of the mosque once inside (these operate regularly from the main entrance). Our guide, Shaema was friendly and highly knowledgeable and provided a really interesting and ‘access all areas’ tour. We got to see parts of the mosque where other visitors couldn’t go to and experienced no queues also!

I would highly recommend this experience and definitely go for the guided tour which is well worth doing also! You will learn so much and get some amazing photos as well!

What a wonderful mosque !, it’s a unique architecture of an art, in each piece and every corner, its a must visit place, you will have a dropped jaw with every detail in that place.

They made a new underground souq “mall” which is super useful to eat and chill after ur tour in the mosque.

I’d highly recommend going with the local guided tours inside the mosque, it’s totally free and they perform it almost every two hours with multiple languages, Abdelrahamn Al Alawi was our tour guide and can’t thank him enough for his kindness, he was so friendly, funny and so professional, he delighted us with so much information about that place and we loved it.

Thank you so much for ur awesome service and keep up the good work.

It is amazing to have the opportunity to learn about the Mosque and see parts that are not accessible otherwise FREE.
The mosque provides free tours of around 30 min and really you HAVE to take it. My guide was Aisha and she was wonderful taking us through the building, highlighting its beauty and really acknowledgeable to answer questions.

My father and I visited this mosque for the first time and I noticed there was a free tour. While everyone is walking around. We waited for the next tour to start and Mr Mahmoud Alramadani, the tour guide from the mosque, took us to walk around and explain the construction, design and history of Muslims as well.

While you join the tour, you are able to go to a place that is normally prohibited by visitors !!!

This is really a great tour and I recommend everyone to join !

This is an absolute must visit place even if you are not muslim. The architecture, materials and sheer magnitude of this mosque is jaw dropping. Absolutely beautiful and amazing to see. Not many others like it in the world. They offer free tours and there are plenty of places to eat and buy souvenirs in the basement level. Its almost like a mall in the basement level. Tons of parking and was an overall great experience. You have to wear masks and you must dress respectfully. It is a religious site so you must be respectful in all aspects which is very easy to do.

Visiting Grand Mosque Abu Dhabi best during winter due to head to toe clothings you need to wear as woman, and during dawn as the sunlights will give amazing impressions on the buildings and it’s surrounding. For architectural lovers, this building is a must to visit, very impressed with the spirit of tolerance shown from the pictures along the wall to the grand mosque from head of multi religions visits. Super modern infrastructure and very convinient pathways.

This was one of the best places visited by us in UAE. It’s pristine and there is a calmness around this place . If you are prepared with timings and dress code you will like what you see . It’s well maintained and well organised . You don’t really need a tour guide unless you want explanations . The photo points are clearly identified and there are sufficient guards and volunteers to show you the way.
