Abu Dhabi is an easy day trip from Dubai, but getting there independently means negotiating fast-moving desert highways. This tour makes it simple and provides a guide-led overview of the city so you get to understand its heritage and culture. Tour the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, see the Emirates Towers and Ferrari World. Enjoy a small-group atmosphere, with entrance fees and Dubai hotel or central pickup and drop-off included.
What to Expect
After pickup at your Dubai hotel or another designated location, venture south by air-conditioned minivan to the UAE capital city of Abu Dhabi, hearing about its history and highlights en route.

On arrival, tour the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the world’s eighth largest mosque. See the marble courtyards and lavish prayer hall as you hear how the mosque accommodates 40,000 worshippers.

Trace the palm-lined Corniche and view the exterior of the Emirates Palace and landmark Etihad Towers, the latter famous for featuring in 2015's Furious 7 movie.

Visit the UAE Heritage Village to discover Abu Dhabi’s traditional Bedouin culture, and then continue to the Sheikh Zayed Centre (closed Fridays and Saturdays) to learn about the UAE’s late founding father.

Lastly, stroll through the Dates Market and stop for photos by Ferrari World on Yas Island before your tour concludes back at your original departure point in Dubai.

We didn't enjoy the Abu Dhabi trip that much, however we would have felt we were missing something had we not gone, but we're in no hurry back. It wasn't anything to do with the tour which was by Oceanair tours. The pick up was...More

A great way to see Abu Dhabi in a day from Dubai

We really enjoyed this tour a lot. Our tour had only 9 people. The minibus is a good size and type with comfortable seating and large windows. We spend a lot of time seeing things from the bus, so the windows are very important. Our...More

Great day trip to Abu Dhabi

Our group of 4 had a great time on this day trip. Our guide, Hend, was very knowledgeable, open to questions and easy to talk to. We loved seeing the Mosque which was amazingly beautiful and the highlight of the trip for sure. Highly recommend!!
