Grand Mosque and Abu Dhabi city tour (Falcon Hospital and Louvre Abu Dhabi visit is an additional option)

Abu Dhabi is evolving as the cultural and entertainment capital of the Middle East. Relatively short time ago Abu Dhabi was little more than a empty albeit beautiful desert. But today it is the fastest growing city in the Middle East and has nearly 8% of the world's proven oil reserves. See how this fascinating city is transforming itself into a Mega Metropolis with Emirati Culture at the same time moving away from Oil based revenue. Abu Dhabi has over 200 islands, 400 kilometers of pristine coastline, evergrowing Modern skyline and Abu Dhabi offers a diversity of visitor experiences.

If you are interested to visit Abu Dhabi Falcon Bird Hospital(the largest Falcon Bird Hospital in the world) or Ferrari World Indoor Theme Park, those tours can be arranged as well on an extended customised tour on the same day or another day.
Falcon Hospital visit needs advance booking, with each booking cost US$47 for each person. Ferrari theme park tickets can be purchased by you in the counter without any advance booking.


Abu Dhabi is about 160km from Dubai. We will pick you from your hotel in Dubai and drive to Abu Dhabi the capital of UAE. We will start the day with a visit inside the Zayed Grand Mosque for about 1hrs. Then we would drive through the richest part of Abu Dhabi before we reach Abu Dhabi city, and a photo stop in front of the Emirates Palace Hotel. We would also drive through the ultra modern and scenic Corniche road and Abu Dhabi breakwater area and drive through the Presidential Palace. Then we can have a Lunch stopover. Then visit the Heritage Village of Abu Dhabi to see what life was like 50 years ago, with view of modern Abu Dhabi skyline in background and we'll see an irrigation system, desert houses, desert animals.
We can also visit a fishing port in the middle of concrete jungle(contrasting view) and Date market. Finally we'll drive through Sadiyat island and Yas island near The Louvre, F1 race track and Ferrari world. Then we would drive back to Dubai.

A Recent Review of this tour

Barti is a well informed Indian gentleman with an excellent grasp of English; his tour covers the main sights of Abu Dhabi and is well supported by a wealth of information to enhance the experience. With his own driver and a people carrier, Barti is able to commit fully to engaging with his clients and we appreciated his manner throughout: never intrusive, Barti allowed us enough time to explore alone but was always present to set the scene beforehand and answer questions as they arose. Thank you, Barti!
