What You Can Expect

Sheikh Zayed Mosque and Falcon Hospital Tour in Abu Dhabi

See the sights of Abu Dhabi including Sheikh Zayed Mosque

Start your 4-hour tour when you meet your local guide in central Abu Dhabi. Then, relax into your comfortable, air-conditioned coach and journey to the Grand Mosque, otherwise known as the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan Mosque.

As you travel, learn the story of the beautiful mosque, built between 1996 and 2007. Hear about the ruler who commissioned its building and gave it its name — the late Sheikh Zayed—and how he was buried here following his death in 2004.

On arrival, head inside and behold the spectacular mosque interior. Lavishly decorated with marble mosaics, crystal and gold-plated chandeliers, and the world’s biggest Persian carpet, the building centers on a vast prayer hall and was designed to accommodate around 40,000 worshippers.

Having explored here, enjoy a panoramic coach tour of more of Abu Dhabi’s attractions. Snap photos of the opulent Emirates Palace Hotel and enjoy the views as you drive along Abu Dhabi Corniche – the sweeping palm-lined waterfront — to the Breakwater marina, filled with billion-dollar yachts and famous for stellar views over the city’s skyline.

Next, pay a visit to the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital, a modern health center for injured or sick falcons — the UAE’s cherished national bird. Falconry is a central to the national heritage, and these handsome birds are revered as symbols of power and courage.

With a highly trained falcon carer, explore the cutting-edge clinical and health facilities and hear how the hospital has extended its care to other species of birds. Learn about the treatments on offer, stroll to the free-flight aviary for a flying display, and have your photo taken with some of these magnificent creatures.

Afterward, finish your tour with a drop-off at the starting point.
