What to Expect
Explore ever-changing Abu Dhabi and be amazed at the intricate weaving of tradition and modernity, in this half day tour of the UAE’s capital city. Learn more about the religious foundations of Islamic faith and admire the architecture and sounds when visiting the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Get a fascinating insight into traditional life at the fruit and dates market. Although now well outnumbered by modern shopping malls, the souks take you back in time when barter was the only way of trading, and negotiation a time honored skill. Get a taste of what real Bedouin life was about at the Heritage Village near Marina Mall. Built like a traditional oasis village and tells the story of Bedouin customs and folklore. Take home some souvenirs or a beautiful henna tattoo at the village’s small Bedouin market. Don’t forget to take a picture of the fascinating skyline of Abu Dhabi.
