What to expect
If you want to discover the most important sights of Abu Dhabi in just one day, this is the tour for you. An air-conditioned vehicle will pick you up from your hotel in Dubai and take you back at the end of the tour. In a group of about 17 people, a professional guide will tell you the history of the three sites you will visit during the tour, which lasts about 10 hours:
- Sheikh Zayed Mosque: one of the largest mosques in the world.
- Qasr al Watan Palace: the incredible presidential palace of the Emirates.
- Etihad Towers - a skyscraper complex in the heart of Abu Dhabi
The Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi is one of the largest mosques in the world. With its 107-metre-high minarets and impressive architectural style, it is one of the most beautiful and most visited temples in the world. But access is only available in the morning, from Sunday to Thursday. Also, women must be covered, including their heads, and men must wear long trousers. If these conditions are not met, access will be forbidden .
Al-Qasr al-Watan is not open to guided tours. Therefore, the guide will remain outside, where he will tell you all about the history of the impressive building. You can enter on your own to see the 37-metre diameter dome and a chandelier with 350,000 pieces of glass from the inside.
You'll also have the opportunity to visit the Etihad Towers, a complex of five skyscrapers that stand out in the Emirati capital and were used as a filming location for the 2015 movie Full Throttle 7. There are now offices and hotels inside.
