Grand Mosque and Abu Dhabi city tour (Falcon Hospital, Louvre Abu Dhabi, qasr Al Watan 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 Hospital(the largest Falcon Hospital in world), Qasr Al Watan 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$59 for each person. Ferrari theme park tickets can be purchased by you in the counter without any advance booking
