Know More about this tour

Leave your centrally located Dubai hotel with your private guide, and then travel south to Abu Dhabi, roughly 1.5 hours away. Capital of the United Arab Emirates, 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 your guides stories about the city and its sights such as Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahyan Mosque, or the Grand mosque, as it is 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.

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 say your goodbyes to your guide at the start point.

    Wonderful experience! The guide was extremely knowledgeable and spoke very good English. The Grande Mosque was beautiful, and our guide also knew the perfect spot to take an awesome picture! We saw all the main sights in Abu Dhabi including the President’s Palace and Ferrari World!

    We really enjoyed our day trip to Abu Dhabi. This tour provided our own tour guide and driver. The van was clean and comfortable. Our guide was excellent. She gave us a nice overview of the UAE on the hour plus drive to Abu Dhabi. The grand mosque tour was superb. Quite an incredible place. We also went to a heritage center and the Zayed Center. Saw the Lourve Abu Dhabi from the outside only. Stopped in at the Palace hotel for a quick peak at the gold leaf ceiling and the opulent fixtures. Really enjoyed our day and it was so nice having your own guide and driver.

    We travelled to Abu Dhabi with our guide, Gabor. His knowledge of the country was exceptional and we came across many sites that we could have missed had it not been for him. Great value for money and we look forward to visiting again soon

    Awesome day in Abu Dhabi! Great job by Orient Tours, and we couldn't imaging a better guide than Mr. Mohamed Murasil. He shared his extensive knowledge of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and helped to make our visit an experience we will never forget. It is one of the most beautiful religious sites I have ever visited, and the experience was humbling. We also stopped at the Emirates Palace hotel for a short tour and enjoyed cappuccino and ice cream sprinkled with gold flakes! Overall great day visiting the mosque, hotel, Yas island, Sheikh Zayed library, Ferrari World, and viewing the impressive Abu Dhabi skyline.

    Wonderful trip and tour of Abu Dhabi mosque, which is spectacular. Enjoyed having both a driver and personal guide, who imparted a lot about Emirati society and roles of men and women. John W.

    I choose this tour because travelled so far to come to Dubai, so visiting Abu Dhabi was a no brainer. The plan was OK and having a private tour made a lot of sense to take advantage of the flexibility and exclusivity it brings. Unfortunately the guide they send me in Dubai did not seem fully knowledgeable of the Abu Dhabi city. They took us to the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, which was great, but after that lost time in a gallery that was a tourist trap for purchase of goods, then Heritage Village and Emirates Palace. By then we had plenty of time to do other things and ask about other historical sites or local market and the answer was none available, I believe he did not knew Abu Dhabi well. Ended losing few hours in the Marina Mall for lunch and the Ferrari which could you do nothing if not entering the park. To make matter worst the driver was pressing and releasing the gas pedal every 5 seconds, making the ride very uncomfortable. I ended up paying a lot of money for a private to make it special and it was a extremely weak experience. Would not recommend this company for their private tours.

    Excellent driver/guide team made the best use of the day, with flexible adaptation of the programme along the way, including sufficient time for lunch at Emirates Palace.
