Full description

Enjoy a day trip by van to Abu Dhabi from Dubai. Stop at the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, take a stroll at the Abu Dhabi Corniche, and see sights like the Emirates Palace.

Following a pickup from your hotel in Dubai, travel along the Gulf coast to Abu Dhabi, listening to the fascinating stories about one of the richest cities in the world along the way.

Your first stop is the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, an incredible mosque exemplifying the beauty of Islamic architectural brilliance. Spend time in the mosque with your guide.   Next, enjoy a visit to another of Abu Dhabi's landmarks, the Etihad Towers. Those who have seen the ‘Furious 7’ movie will remember the imposing tower.

Afterward, stop at the Abu Dhabi Corniche, and take a stroll with scenic views of the Arabian Gulf. See the Emirates Palace from afar and take snaps for your photo collection with these wonderful structures as the backdrop.

Make a stop for lunch at the Marina Mall, the Carrefour, the food court, or a restaurant with a view of the Corniche.

Visit the beautiful Qasr Al Watan Palace housed in the Presidential Palace compound of UAE. Notice the architectural features, historical artifacts, and other historical treasures of the palace. Finally, relax on the return journey to Dubai.

Great tour with friendly and knowledgeable guide. The tour left on time and stayed on time throughout the day. We’ve opted for the Arabic food lunch, as my husband is celiac. Unfortunately the place was very crowded and the fumes were unbearable. Tip: choose the fast food option , as they take you to a shopping centre with more options. The mosque and the palace were amazing!

I was very satisfied with the theam, the bus driver and the guide H. Ramadan. He explained a lot to us about the people and about Abu Dhabi. The food was excellent too. It was just great, the trip was in German, H Ramadan spoke very good German. Here in Germany one would say that a good company is only good if the employees are excellent. Thanks again to the team, the PCR test in the hotel room went smoothly. I will use the getyourguide again on another trip. H. Ramadan keep up the good work, many thanks especially to you and your bus driver who brought us back to the hotel safely Greetings Rudolf Schuller
