Full description
Discover the must-see attractions and hidden gems of Abu Dhabi on a private full-day tour from Dubai. You’ll be picked up at your hotel in a comfortable private car or van suitable for the size of your private group.

During the drive to Abu Dhabi, your guide will tell you about the city and how it developed from a humble trading port into a cosmopolitan city in just a few decades.

When you arrive, your first stop will be the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Marvel at the gleaming white domes, minarets and interior ornamentation. You’ll see the world's largest carpet and the world's largest chandelier. The breathtaking interior features Mamluk, Ottoman and Fatimid styles.

On your way to Tarbouche, the restaurant where you’ll stop for lunch, you’ll see the Emirates Palace, the 7-star hotel that’s one of the iconic landmarks of Abu Dhabi.

After your Arabic lunch, the next stop on the itinerary will be at the harbor, where you can sit and watch the dhows, the traditional wooden cargo boats, slip off to sea.

Take a small detour to visit the date market, one of the city’s hidden gems. You’ll find more than a dozen varieties of fresh dates displayed in wooden barrels. Taste the different varieties and purchase some souvenirs for friends and family back home.

Then you’ll discover even more attractions! Drive over Saadiyat Island to Yas Island where you’ll stop at the Viceroy Hotel, an architectural triumph with a very futuristic design. The hotel hovers over land and water and spans the Yas Marina Circuit, the favored race track for Formula 1.
