Full description

Depart Dubai and journey to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi by modern air-conditioned vehicle. Relax in comfort on the 90-minute drive with your professional guide. On arrival, marvel at the 8th largest mosque in the world. Spread over 30 acres, the magnificent structure took more than a decade to build and now stands as a showcase for the United Arab Emirate’s Islamic cultural heritage. Roam around the site that can accommodate up to 40,000 worshippers at any one time. Marvel at priceless features, such as the huge Swarovski crystal chandeliers, floral mosaics, and artifacts of gold, silver, and marble.

Be amazed by the gigantic carpet in the main prayer hall. Measuring 60,570 square feet and weighing 35 tons, the carpet was made in Iran and is the result of the toil of thousands of carpet weavers over 2 years. Take stunning memorable photos of the complex and its awe-inspiring architecture, and get a better appreciation of the vision of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the late president of the UAE and the mastermind behind the mosque.

Depart Abu Dhabi and journey back to Dubai for a drop-off at your hotel or designated location.

Maged was our tour guide and was amazing. He provided us with historical background and cultural information about UAE on the drive to Abu Dhabi. He also pointed out the many tourist attractions on our drive and gave detailed information on them. At the mosque he gave a well informed tour not only about the mosque but also about Islam. Also finished the tour in a nice restaurant recommended by Maged. Would definitely recommend!!

Our guide from ocean air travels OAT picked us up in a coach and our journey to Abu Dhabi was great, he provided interesting facts and was welcoming and friendly throughout. Abaya was provided for guests if they were without and we went onto the tour which was just as magical as you can imagine. Our guide provides insight and time to take photos and we had a relaxing journey home. Great experience, great guide and package, recommended.

We had Ousamma as our guide. Everything was perfect. The day before, he contacted us to organize the pick-up for the next day. From the pick-up in front of our hotel until the return, Ousamma was available, caring with the group and his explanations were of a high standard. In addition, Ousamma translated the tour for us into perfect French for my daughter and me. In short, a guide as we would like every day during our discoveries! Thank you Osama!!
