Morning Tour of Abu Dhabi City
From US$49.00
Overview
Round up the sights of old and new Abu Dhabi without the need to arrange transport or tickets—and in just half a day—on this city tour. Set off by air-conditioned minivan and tour the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Heritage Village, and Corniche before exploring old souks and more, all with a guide to provide insight. With entry fees included, this tour is ideal for first-time visitors and those short on time.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at your Abu Dhabi hotel or a city-center mall, and set off by air-conditioned minivan. Hear about the landmarks en route and uncover the city’s history with stops at some of its oldest sites.

Head first for the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi’s modern marvel. Take a walking tour of its white-marble courtyards and arcades, and see its main prayer hall, adorned with vast chandeliers.

Next, chart Abu Dhabi’s Bedouin roots at the Heritage Village, before delving into the bustle of the Iranian Market. Then, explore the Dates Market to see and sample some of the many fresh dates for sale.

Stroll along the scenic Corniche and visit the fishing harbor to see its wooden dhows (Arabian trading boats). Finally, drive by the cutting-edge attractions on both Yas and Saadiyat Island, including Ferrari World and the Abu Dhabi Louvre.

Your tour concludes at the departure point.
