Discover the capital of the UAE at your own pace, with our private tour. It includes a vehicle, chauffer, and an English speaking guide. Perfect for getting to know Abu Dhabi in a day!
Having picked you up at your hotel, airport, or cruise port, we'll begin our tour of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the country and a city more on the international radar with every passing day.
The tour begins visiting the jewel of the city, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the most impressive mosque in the world and one of the largest. We'll make our way inside to discover its grandeur and then the tour continues along the seafront: a promenade eight kilometres long which takes in beaches, parks, cafés and restaurants.
The tour continues, at the Emirates Palace Hotel, the most luxurious in the country along with the Burj al Arab. The next stop is Heritage Village, a place created to remember the past of the city, before the oil money. In this 'little village' as well as enjoying the best views of the bay, you'll see traditional buildings, as well as a surprise or two...
Next up, you'll visit the architectural masterpiece that is the Qasr Al Watan, or the "Palace of the Nation", located in the UAE Presidential Palace Compound. Learn fascinating facts about the beautiful building before the tour ends back at your hotel.
