General Information About Abu Dhabi City Tour
Introducing Dubai’s less frivolous cousin, Abu Dhabi is a city that still clings to its roots. With a rich history and culture, this tour 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. From here we continue to Abu Dhabi downtown with a stop at the Heritage Village. See what life was like here in a walled complex that also houses an interesting Bedouin exhibition.
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.
