What to Expect
After pickup from your Abu Dhabi hotel, set off on your tour by comfortable, climate-controlled coach. As you travel, learn about the city’s past and its 20th-century oil boom—a time that triggered its transformation from a humble port to today's metropolis. Visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the world’s largest and Abu Dhabi’s modern showpiece. Explore the white-marble courtyards of the complex and learn how it can accommodate up to 40,000 worshippers. Next, stroll around the souk to browse the gold shops before diving into the Dates Market to see and sample some of the many varieties of dates on offer. Drive along the Corniche to admire the skyscrapers and beaches on each side, and visit Heritage Village, an outdoor museum celebrating Abu Dhabi’s Bedouin heritage. Watch craft demos and check out the museum, replica village, and falaj irrigation channels before finishing with a hotel drop-off.

  • If you are visiting a mosque especially the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, you need to have a more conservative dress code. For men and women, your legs and arms need to be covered – no shorts or skirts above the ankle. Additionally, your clothes should not be tight fitting – this is not the place for yoga pants! Try and ensure the fabric of your clothes is opaque as well, as see-through garments are inappropriate in a religious environment. Female visitors to the mosque will be asked to cover their hair; however, a headscarf will be provided to them upon entry. As a side note, you will be asked to remove your shoes.
  • This experience requires good weather. If it’s cancelled due to poor weather, you’ll be offered a different date or a full refund
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 50 travellers
Cancellation Policy
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.

This review is long overdue. Emirates Tours and Safari satisfied our tour needs quite well during our visit to Abu Dhabi in July 2019, and they deserve an excellent rating. My then 86-year-old mother and I availed of the half-day city tour with English speaking tour

We had booked many of the sightseeing tours in advance both in Abu Dhabi and Dubai through this Company and they did not disappoint us. Their driver cum guides were well informed and took extra care for me since I needed wheel chair assistance at many points.

I visited this place on Jan. 1 in 2020, actually, I don't like the mosque. Tens of thousands of people swarm into this tourist spot, and it was so crowded. When I saw the luxury pieces of stuff, I don't appreciate them.

Dear Jonesy, Greetings from Emirates Tours and Safari LLC! It is unfortunate that you have not enjoyed the Sheikh Zayed Mosque visit due to the big amount of tourists during the holidays that usually start from 2nd week of December until 2nd week of January. Sometimes it is out of our hands and we cannot do anything in regards of this. Please if you can provide your booking reference and your pick-up location that day for further investigation. We still hope you visit the Grand Mosque next time so we can provide you our services and have a better impression of Abu Dhabi.
