Participate in Gray line's ultimate Abu Dhabi full-day tour and take advantage of an ideal introduction to the largest city of the Emirates, which also happens to be the UAE capital. Our first stop will be at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the largest and most beautiful Mosques in the world; able to accommodate an impressive number of over 30,000 worshipers. The exquisite white structure is completely clad in marble, featuring intricate Islamic art and carvings, as well as extensive landscaping.
After this moving experience, we will continue our tour towards the YAS island. Where you will have a photo opportunity at the Ferrari World - the largest indoor Ferrari themed park. Later drive to the vibrant dates market where you will have an opportunity to see or buy wide varities of dates. Later visit the Heritage Visit to experience the traditional aspects of the desert way of life, and immerse yourself in the time capsule that brings to life a souk, a mosque and an encampment from pre-modernized Abu Dhabi. Later drive pas the downtown area of Abu Dhabi before breaking for lunch at a renowned restaurant.
Post lunch we will continue our tour and our next stop will be the Presidential Palace which is known as Qasr Al Watan in Arabic. Qasr Al Watan is an incredible, new and unique landmark in the United Arab Emirates. A Palace brimming with knowledge, offering the world a first-of-its-kind insight into the Arab heritage and the governing principles that shaped the history of the United Arab Emirates and its vision to the future. The Palace offers you a unique opportunity to marvel at its majestic hallways, detailed library and a room full of artifacts.
After we spending quality time at this palace we move to our next destination. Qasr Al hosn Is the oldest and most significant building in Abu Dhabi, holding the city’s first permanent structure; the watchtower. Built around the 1790’s, the commanding structure overlooked the coastal trade routes and protected the growing settlement established on the island. It is a vast contrast to our first point which was the Presidential Palace as this old architecture will take you back in time. This is an old fort now converted to a small museum which displays artifacts and reminiscence of the history.
After exploring Qasr Al Hosn we will drive back and you will be then dropped off at your respective hotels.
