Qasr al Hosn is Abu Dhabi’s symbolic birthplace and was built in the 1760s as a coral and sea stone watchtower overlooking the sea. This later transformed into an impenetrable fort. Due to the shells’ reflective effect, the fort’s walls would sparkle in the sun, offering a welcome navigational tool for merchants. In the 1950s, an iconic palace enclosed the fort, and it was transformed into a museum housing collections from Abu Dhabi and the Arabian Gulf. You will finish the morning exploring the region’s history, culture and traditions at this significant landmark.

After the tour, a private car will transfer you back to your preferred destination in Dubai.

  • The guide was perfect and very comfortable make for my family : Thank you.

  • The guide was really knowledgeable and entertaining and the driver was also particularly polite. The mosque is beautiful and heritage town is very touristy but it was fun nonetheless. Overall it was a great experience but I have a few cons: 1 I wish I had the final schedule with more anticipation as we arrived later than anticipated, 2 the car ride from Dubai to Abu Dhabi is shorter than the flight because you have to arrive 45 minutes before the flight to the marina and although the place is nice to walk around we couldn't because they warned us that if all passengers arrived they would move up the flight at any time and finally 3 there's no A/C in the flight and the heat is awful so I was all sweaty after it ended.

  • This is an amazing experience, the tour was a private tour for me and my friend only which is a bonus. Max our guide was very informative and gave us lots of information about Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This tour is a must. it is also the very first time I have been in a seaplane and it is a fabulous experience. Definately will do it again.

  • flying back and sitting in the co-pilot seat is awesome

  • ahmed my guide was great. well informed and entertaining. he did not rush us at all. a great experience to visit abu dhabi. the plane ride was great. i had the best seat in the plane, co-pilot. well worth the extra fee. my wife however got sick even if she took motion sickness medications prior to the plane trip. So if you are motion sickness prone, this is not for you.
