Explore Abu Dhabi's most emblematic monuments and discover the spirit of the United Arab Emirates on this English-language guided tour of the capital. Visit the Grand Mosque, the Date Market and much more!
Abu Dhabi City Tour Itinerary
After being picked up from your hotel, you'll begin your guided sightseeing tour of Abu Dhabi. The first stop on your route will be at one of the UAE capital's most important monuments: the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The biggest mosque in the country, hence its name, this magnificent gleaming white building is considered to be one of the most impressive Muslim places of worship in the world. It has the capacity for 40,000 people!
You'll spend around an hour visiting the majestic mosque, before being taken to the Corniche, as Abu Dhabi's waterfront promenade is known. After taking in the beautiful views from this area, you'll continue your tour of the city to the luxury Emirates Palace hotel and the Etihad Towers. You might recognise these incredible modern structures from the seventh Fast and Furious film.
Discover the history of Abu Dhabi next, visiting the Heritage Village, where you'll experience a reconstruction of traditional desert life in the Emirati capital. Renew your energy with a delicious lunch in a local restaurant (not included).
The city sightseeing tour will continue to the Date Market, where you'll be immersed in the sights and smells of the United Arab Emirates as you explore countless stalls selling over a hundred different types of the popular dried fruit, before your tour comes to an end.
