Full description
After pickup, sit back on the drive to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Enter the courtyard and see the shining exterior surface of the mosque, made up of white Greek and Macedonian tiles. Step inside the mosque to see the world’s largest hand-woven carpet, large crystal chandeliers and glass panels studded with thousands of Swarovski crystals.

After your mosque visit, return to the vehicle for the drive to the Louvre Museum located in Saadiyat Island. Follow your guide as they help you enter the museum with your ticket. As the largest in the Gulf region, this museum displays both classic and modern works of cultural and sociological significance from all over the world. Once inside the museum, walk through the promenades and see sunlight shine through the museum's iconic dome, built to resemble palm leaves.

Continue your stroll around the museum and see the immense collections of artworks. Admire pieces from French museums, such as the Louvre, the Center Georges Pompidou, Musee d’Orsay and Palace of Versailles. Take the time to visit the museum's Children’s Museum, various exhibitions, restaurant, cafe and boutique. After the tour, enjoy the drive back to your hotel in Dubai.

It was a day tour that skipped all the tourist spots. It was nice in that the trip was leisurely. The group essentially spent the day at these 2 stops, which gave us 2 hours in Louvre. The guide was functionally friendly but not particularly in small groups. If you’re joining this tour, do pack a light lunch or buy something after the mosque visit as meals are not included.

Great to have a pick up from my hotel in an air conditioned vehicle with a small group. The mosque was beautiful and getting to be covered from head to toe was fun. The Lourve was just right amount of time. While the art was just ok, the building was spectacular.

The 'small group' consisted of 17 participants, all of whom had to be picked up. It took us about 1.5 hours to leave Dubai. The time in the mosque was sufficient, almost a bit too long, while there was not enough time in the Louvre. The guide was very good
