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.

I only booked it the day before we went, but the communication and planing between the guide and myself was very quick, friendly and efficient which put me at ease. Very informative guide happy to share knowledge and the mosque itself is so beautiful- definitely worth visiting, so I’m glad that we made the time before our flight back home.

Tour was nice. Our guide (Muhammed) was very friendly, gave us interesting facts. Mousque tour was little to fast, stop, take pictures and move on. Wanted to have a little more relaxed way to look at everything. Biggest downfall was commute, pickup from hotel, go to next meeting point, change cars, pick up more people etc. It took around 2-2.5 hours commute each way. Started at 8am and got back around 4pm.

Overall, great experience! We were updates about our pick-up at the hotel the night before and the day itself. Mariana, our tour guide, shared some info/facts about the UAE, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Emirati lifestyle. Once we arrived at the mosque, she gave a detailed explanation about the mosque and the muslim culture. Definitely recommend this tour! One thing I would change is: more time to rest/have a drink after the tour and just before heading back to Dubai.
