  • Duration: 9 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2168PDXB06
Explore Abu Dhabi with a private guide on this full-day sightseeing tour of the United Arab Emirate’s second city! While visiting the city’s showstopping sights such as Sheik Zayed Mosque, learn all about Abu Dhabi’s history, culture and attractions and explore the Abu Dhabi Heritage Museum. If there is another attraction that you specifically want to see, simply let the guide know; the itinerary is flexible and can be tailored to your interests.
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 guide’s 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 world’s 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.

My wife Donna and just completed an outstanding private tour with an amazing and knowledgable tour guide This was a great way to end our journey to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.We have traveled to over 60 countries and all 7 continents within the last 10 years and have experienced many great tour guides, but no one has provided us with the exceptional service as our new friend from the tour company Mehul .We booked a private tour of Abu Dhabi from Dubai and Mehul Bulsara immediately began to show us how knowledgeable ,professional and experienced he was as a guide.He first prepared us for our journey to the Grand Mosque and informed us we need to wear proper clothing.He was extremely patient with my wife Donna during the security check , due to her capris not covering the ankles Mehul escorted her back to the car to get socks ,wrapped a scarf to cover her head and walked her through security .He was with us every step of the way , shopping through the Souk Market helping us find gifts and scarfs for Donna.Our guide Mehul graciously accommodated each of our request and even took us to Hard Rock Cafe to get a few of our friends pins for their collection.Mehul was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of Dubai and Abu Dhabi history with us.Mehul was very interested in learning about our American culture and when he visits the US in the near future ,we hope to extend to him and his family the same joy he provided us.We will leave Dubai and Abu Dhabi with a lifetime of great memories and a very special friend.We highly encourage you to book a private tour and ask for one of the best guides ever Mehul Bulsara .
