What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Abu Dhabi Sightseeing with Transport from Dubai

See the highlights of the UAE capital

After morning pickup from your central Dubai hotel, hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned minivan with your informative private guide. Then, set off on your private day trip to Abu Dhabi, roughly 1.5 hours away.

As you travel, listen as your guide shares interesting facts about the city. Learn how it grew from a humble trading port into one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities in just a few decades following the discovery of oil in the 1950s. If there’s anything you want to see more or less of during your tour, simply let your guide know. Because your tour is private, the itinerary can be tailored around you.

On arrival, travel around the sights in comfort and stop for photos and to visit the attractions as and when you wish. Make your first stop at the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahyan Mosque, otherwise known as the Grand Mosque. Admire the gleaming white domes and minarets, and view the ornate interiors as you learn how the mosque accommodates 40,000 worshippers, making it one of the world’s largest.
Drive along the beautiful, palm-lined Corniche, and after time out for lunch (own expense), visit the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village, an outdoor museum that recreates a traditional oasis village.

Stroll around the replica souks, courtyard houses and Bedouin tents to gain insight into daily life in the region before oil, and browse the interesting craft workshops and stalls for souvenirs.

Finally, see a dhow-making yard where craftspeople build these traditional Arabian wooden boats. Admire some of the work and learn more about the time-honored techniques used to construct these beautiful vessels.

Afterward, relax on your ride back to Dubai where your trip ends with a hotel drop-off.

I was a bit nervous since it was my first trip to Dubai but the travel guide and the driver was excellent. From the pickup to advise on how to dress properly to the mosque. We had a memorable time. It's worth the private tour to accommodate our plans. Will def recommend this tour .

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

A great tour. Our guide was off the hook good. He was so patience and his knowledge was super. He loved to take our pictures and knew the best spots. We got to the Mosque early and missed the huge bus groups with lots of cameras.
Lunch was at a mall and we really toured the all of Abu Dhabi. This is a MUST do tour.
