The Best of Abu Dhabi Half Day Tour
In just half a day, you'll get to experience the best of Abu Dhabi's urban attractions. This sightseeing tour squeezes in multiple landmarks that will give you a true taste of Abu Dhabi. Embark on this Abu Dhabi expedition for a closer look at the Jewel of the Arab World.
Your tour starts with a pickup at the Abu Dhabi port. You'll be transported by luxury vehicle to the city, where your first attraction will be Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This enormous mosque is the eighth largest in the world and can hold over 40,000 people at once; it's hard to miss and impossible to forget. After admiring this architectural wonder, you'll proceed to a corniche for some quick photos and swing by the Emirates Palace, which hosts guests of the Abu Dhabi government. More than 300 rooms and 90 suites, several finished in marble and gold, are housed within this venue. You will also get to see the President's Palace during this portion of the tour.
Your Abu Dhabi tour takes a cultural turn with a stop at Heritage Village, a recreation of a traditional Arab village. While there, you can experience desert life firsthand and get a glimpse of the area's famous underground irrigation system (falaj). Two more stops await: Marina Mall and Ferrari World. The former has a 100-meter-high viewing area, which is great for photos, while the latter is the biggest indoor amusement park on Earth and serves as home to the world's fastest roller coaster. Once your tour is complete, you'll return to the port of Abu Dhabi. In just half a day, you can see the very best of the city on this comprehensive guided tour.
The United Arab Emirates has conservative dress traditions during the Ramadan month. If you are traveling during Ramadan month, swimwear must be confined to the beach and hotel pools.
