Highlights
    What to Expect
    After pickup by comfortable coach, leave your centrally located Dubai hotel for Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates capital located approximately 1.5 hours away. Often referred to as the ‘Arabian Jewel,’ Abu Dhabi is renowned for its ostentatious monuments and modern architecture.

    The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is the first stop on your full-day sightseeing tour. Marvel at the mosque’s sheer size and grandeur, then head inside the impressive monument for a look at its gilded interior, which can accommodate some 40,000 worshipers, making it one of the largest mosques in the world.

    Next, it’s a short drive to the Zayed Centre, a museum dedicated to the late Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, a leader who is said to have shaped the UAE and is affectionately known as the ‘father of the nation.’ Learn from your guide about the Sheikh’s world travels and browse an impressive collection of his personal memorabilia, including photographs, hunting rifles, stuffed lions and cheetahs, and treasured vehicles.

    Enjoy a break for lunch (own expense) before a drive to your final stop: the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village. Stroll around this open-air museum, which demonstrates what daily life was like in the city prior to the discovery of oil. Explore recreated Emirati souks and a traditional Bedouin camp complete with goat-hair tents.

    Complete your tour of Abu Dhabi with the return to Dubai, passing en route the Dhow Yard where wooden ships are built using time-honored methods. On arrival, you’re dropped off at your hotel.
