Abu Dhabi's major attractions in one day
The drive to Abu Dhabi will take as just over an hour and our first stop is the famous falcon hospital. Here, a German lady doctor has earned the respect of the Sheikhs who bring their valuable birds from near and far for medical check ups, surgery and sometimes even a feather transplantation. You will join a guided tour through and behind the scenes of the hospital. You will be able to watch a small procedure as well as to come up close and personal with one of these magnificent birds.
Another must see in the Capital of the UAE is the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. One of the largest and most beautiful mosques in the world. It is built from white marble and decorated with gold, gem stones, Swarowski crystals and the largest hand woven carpet in the world.
Last but not least, we will visit famous Emirates Palace Hotel, the most expensive hotel ever built, which serves as a guest palace at the same time. I will show you the public areas and invite you for a Camelcino at"Le Cafe".
Visit of the one and only falcon Hospital and enjoy a glimpse behind the scenes of this unique establishment. You will witness a routine check up on one of the high priced falcons followed by a guided tour through the hospital.
See the breathtakingly beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque from inside, outside, up close and personal. Without exaggeration, likely the most spectacular house of worship you will ever see.
Feel like a President at Emirates Palace Hotel - the residence that was built for state visitors and is known to be the most expensive hotel structure ever built completely from marble and a lot of gold.

Ute was our guide for a full-day tour of Abu Dhabi. She is very personable and full of information about the area. She arranged a tour at the Falcon Hospital and spent extra time guiding us around the Grand Mosque. She even thoughtfully brought along some beautiful abayas for us to wear for the visit. She also arranged for us to have lunch at the Emirates Palace Hotel, and got tickets for our visit to the Louvre. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we would highly recommend Ute!
