Full description
Enjoy a private tour of the UAE's capital city. This is the perfect tour for people on an Abu Dhabi layover, or for those visiting for a short period of time. This tour is specially designed to ensure all the city's major attractions are seen during your 3-hour trip.  Start your tour in the lobby of the Premier Inn at Abu Dhabi airport, the Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal, or any hotel within Abu Dhabi city limits. After a short meet and greet with your driver you will hop into your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and commence your driving tour.  Throughout your tour, you will venture far and wide across the city taking in as many of the city's sights as possible. You will venture to the city's outskirts, the new development of Saadiyat Island and Yas Island. Start with the city's outskirts by visiting the Andaz Capital Gate Hotel, the Emirates Palace Hotel (stopping briefly for a photo opportunity). Drive past the Presidential Palace, Etihad Towers, Etihad Square and the Skyline of Abu Dhabi by the Corniche. Continue on to the new development of Saadiyat Island. Here you will see the Louvre Museum and stop for a quick photo opportunity. Follow your driving tour on to Yas Island where you will see the world's largest Ferrari themed park. After taking photos of the park from the outside, your drive will finish with a trip back to your selected drop-off location.
