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, where up to 40,000 worshippers can be accommodated 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 drop off at your hotel or designated location.

The half day tour is enough time to go, see the mosque and come back. It was perfect for us as we were on a tight schedule and was cramming in other tours. Latif, our guide was very personable, knowledgable, and was the best photographer! He knew all the angles!

We had Noor as a guide and he did a great guidance. The whole tour was very well organized with pickup and return to the hotel. the mosque is very impressive. Noor explained everything very well, he had big knowledge about Dubai and Abu Dhabi and his explanations made the transport to the mosque very entertaining. The evening lighting at the mosque was great. I highly recommend booking the evening tour.
