Upon pickup from centrally located hotels in the morning, board an air-conditioned coach and depart Dubai for a comprehensive tour of Abu Dhabi. The roughly 1.5-hour route out of the city follows Sheikh Zayed Road toward your first stop: Yas Island.
On arrival, your guide stops for refreshments and points out the ultra-modern sights, including a close-up view of the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and F1 Circuit at Yas Marina. Up next on your sightseeing itinerary is Zayed Port, a bustling commercial region. Observe fishermen with their daily catch heading to the Fish Souk at Mina Zayed where business is conducted the traditional way. You’ll find additional photo ops across the road at Al Mina Fruit and Vegetable Souk where vendors arrange colorful produce and shops sell numerous varieties of dates.
From here it’s a short distance via the Corniche Road to the Marina Mall, a venue for shopping and entertainment. En route, your guide points out Abu Dhabi's impressive architecture. You can browse for goods and purchase lunch at one of the cafes and restaurants (own expense).
In the afternoon, continue along the scenic Corniche, passing the Emirates Palace Hotel and the palaces and private residences of Al Bateen on the way to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Take in the majestic gold and white architecture, magnified by reflective pools surrounding one of the world’s largest mosques, which features 82 domes and more than 1,000 columns. Follow your guide inside (appropriate dress is required) for a look at chandeliers gilded in 24-carat gold.
Spend an hour here before the return drive to Dubai, with drop-off at your hotel.
