What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Abu Dhabi Sightseeing with Transport from Dubai

See the highlights of the UAE capital

Leave your centrally located Dubai hotel with your private guide, and then travel south to Abu Dhabi, roughly 1.5 hours away. Capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is often called the ‘Arabian Jewel,’ a name that testifies to its lavish monuments and flashy modern architecture.

As you travel around town, listen to your guide’s stories about the city and its sights such as Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahyan Mosque, or the grand mosque, as it is more simply known. Head inside to learn about the monument and marvel at its sheer size and grandeur. The stunning building can accommodate some 40,000 worshipers inside its walls, making it one of the world’s largest mosques.

Hop back inside your minivan and travel the short distance to the Women’s Handicraft Centre, where local arts and crafts are showcased. Watch local ladies making traditional handicrafts, and hear how the center was established to provide job opportunities for women in the region as well as to preserve local heritage.

After exploring the center, travel through the streets to Abu Dhabi’s oldest building, Qasr al-Husn. Built in the 18th century, the eye-catching white palace was the place from where the city was governed until as recently as the 1960s. Stop for photos outside Qasr al-Husn, and then continue along the waterfront Corniche with its famous white-sand beach.

Enjoy a break for lunch (own expense) before heading to Abu Dhabi Heritage Village, an open-air museum that showcases everyday life in the city prior to the discovery of oil. Stroll around at leisure and admire recreated souks and a traditional Bedouin camp complete with goat-hair tents.

Finish your tour with a drive past the Dhow Yard where wooden ships are built using time-honored methods, and then say your goodbyes to your guide at the start point.
