Know More about this tour

Leave your centrally located Dubai hotel with your guide, and then travel to Abu Dhabi, roughly 1.5 hours away. Capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi is often called the Arabian Jewel, a name that testifies to its lavish monuments and flashy modern architecture.

As you travel around town, listen to stories about the city and its sights such as Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahyan Mosque, or the Grand mosque, as its more simply known. Head inside to learn about the monument and marvel at its sheer size and grandeur. The stunning building can accommodate some 40,000 worshipers inside its walls, making it one of the worlds largest mosques.

Hop back inside your minivan and travel the short distance to the Sheikh Zayed center, where the late Sheikh's work is remembered. See memorabilia of the Shiekh including his hunting rifles and his vehicles. Also learn about how the Sheikh travelled around the world and formed the Emirates as we know them today.

Enjoy a break for lunch (own expense) before heading to Abu Dhabi Heritage Village, an open-air museum that showcases everyday life in the city prior to the discovery of oil. Stroll around at leisure and admire recreated souks and a traditional Bedouin camp complete with goat-hair tents.

Finish your tour with a drive past the Dhow Yard where wooden ships are built using time-honored methods, and then head back to Dubai where you will say your goodbyes to your guide at the start point.

    Our favorite part of the tour was the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. It was amazing. Nimesh was our tour guide and did an amazing job. He was very knowledgeable on the Emirates and the various aspects of our Abu Dhabi tour. Most importantly he was very up to date on the rules and guidelines that we were expected to follow. If we do another private tour of the Emirates we are requesting Nimesh.

    We wanted to do this for a long time and visit as much if the Emirates as possible, this tour helped us to look at the best parts! There was soo much in one day but it wasnt too tiring, there was a lot of information and time for us to enjoy on every site. Would recommend to everyone.

    Been travelling around the world as a tour leader for now over 20 years. I do appreciate when i share the best manner of tourism handling. Orient Tours and representing guide Mr Nimesh Kumara spent a week with us in basic management coordination as well as 2 days of city tours - Dubai and Abu Dhabi. From all perspectives - very effective management, honest and deeply informative partnership! My deepest professional respect. Thank You on behalf of 45 latvian professional medics who formed the bulk of the Latvian group

    I would like to commend Gabor and his driver for taking care of us the whole trip. They were very prompt in picking us up at our hotel (JW Marriott Marquis) and gave us the whole histor/facts of UAE and not just about Abu Dhabi. There were 4 of us in the tour (2 couples from Switzerland) and that has given us a more private setting to ask questions rather than in the bus with 20 or more people. Thank you Gabor!

    Loved this excursion. The mosque Sheikh Zayed and the Emirates Palace are absolutely out of this world. The Town is very modern with nice architecture.

    A full day to visit Abu Dhabi from Dubai was an interesting experience. Many architecturally different buildings and the most beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was the best highlight of the trip with all the white marble and the intricately inlaid flowers in the columns and the floors. Very enjoyable tour.
