Abu Dhabi is an easy day trip from Dubai, but getting there independently means negotiating fast-moving desert highways. This tour makes it simple and provides a guide-led overview of the city so you get to understand its heritage and culture. Tour the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, see the Emirates Towers and Ferrari World. Enjoy a small-group atmosphere, with entrance fees and Dubai hotel or central pickup and drop-off included.
What to Expect
After pickup at your Dubai hotel or another designated location, venture south by air-conditioned minivan to the UAE capital city of Abu Dhabi, hearing about its history and highlights en route.

On arrival, tour the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the world’s eighth largest mosque. See the marble courtyards and lavish prayer hall as you hear how the mosque accommodates 40,000 worshippers.

Trace the palm-lined Corniche and view the exterior of the Emirates Palace and landmark Etihad Towers, the latter famous for featuring in 2015's Furious 7 movie.

Visit the UAE Heritage Village to discover Abu Dhabi’s traditional Bedouin culture, and then continue to the Sheikh Zayed Centre (closed Fridays and Saturdays) to learn about the UAE’s late founding father.

Lastly, stroll through the Dates Market and stop for photos by Ferrari World on Yas Island before your tour concludes back at your original departure point in Dubai.

I really don’t know. They do want you to dress with your arms and legs covered. You should ask your tour manager. Sorry I could help. Have a great trip.
