Abu Dhabi: City Tour and Desert Safari Package

1. Abu Dhabi: City Tour and Desert Safari Package

This package offers a special combination of a morning-guided city tour and an evening desert safari experience. Begin your day exploring the vibrant city of Abu Dhabi and conclude it amongst the calming views of desert sand dunes. Relax between activities in the comfort of your accommodation. The morning Abu Dhabi city tour begins with a visit to the divine Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Marvel at the structure and the gold, marble, stone, and crystals used to design the mosque. See how as one of the largest mosques in the world, approximately 40,000 people can be accommodated at the same time. Afterward, visit the Heritage Village, a reconstructed Emirati village, and get a glimpse into the traditional Bedouin way of life. Next, drive to Saadiyat Island and Yas Island. See the Yas Marina circuit that has hosted the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since 2009. Drive past the Corniche and admire the scenic beauty of the Arabian Sea. Take a brief photo stop at Abu Dhabi’s iconic Emirates Palace. Conclude your morning tour with a stroll through a dates market. In the afternoon get picked up for your evening desert safari in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Head out to explore the Arabian desert and feel your adrenaline rush as you cascade on the steep dunes and sand sweeps around the vehicle. Visit a camel farm in the middle of the desert to meet and feed camels. Go to a Bedouin desert camp and enjoy a warm welcome with Arabic coffee and dates. Test your balancing skills while sandboarding. Try out the other cultural activities like camel riding, henna painting, shisha, or taking photos in Arabic costumes. Have the chance to take a picture with a falcon. Wind down while enjoying an entertaining Tanoura dance and a breathtaking belly dance performance under the gleaming desert sky. Indulge in a scrumptious barbecue dinner with unlimited soft drinks and shisha smoking.  Once the adventures and activities are wrapped up, the lights of the camp will be doused. Sit back and gaze at the desert and the star-lit sky for a few peaceful moments before heading back to your accommodation.

What people are saying about Saadiyat Island

In general, this is a good tour and a great way to spend a whole day in Abu Dhabi if you are there for a short visit. You will experience the main attractions and do so in a comfortable setting. The day started with the tour bus picking me up at my hotel promptly at 9am. The first stop was the grand mosque. We spent an hour in the mosque, which is beautiful and worth the experience. The tour guide was very helpful and informative. For the rest of the city tour, we drove around Abu Dhabi in a bus and drove past some of the key city attractions. The Desert Safari was also a very pleasant experience. We drove along the sand dunes in an SUV and ended up at the camp where there were several options of activities, including camel rides and quad bikes, both at extra cost. Sandboarding on the adjacent sand dunes was complimentary. A complimentary buffet dinner followed, including some entertainment (traditional dancers and music). I was then dropped off at my hotel at 9pm well satisfied.

I bought 1 day tour for city oversight morning and desert in afternoon with some discount, it's very excited and amazing city. Tour guide are very nice and takecare all of us including their preparation for activities, it is worth with our payment.

I love the Dune Safari experience, which was amazing. The city tour was a little boring and could have been better.

4x4 driving in the desert, sunset in the desert, starry sky, it was the best. Saad recommended the driver.

Fun and unforgettable experiences, highly recommended.
