You’ll get an insight into Abu Dhabi’s history and culture during this half-day tour. It starts with a visit to the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Big enough for 40,000 worshippers, it’s the largest in the UAE. Four 350-foot minarets and 82 white marble domes tower above it. For the tour, ladies must wear loose clothes that cover their head and body – you can leave your hands and face exposed. Afterwards you'll head to the Heritage Village, a museum where you can see what life was like in the UAE before the discovery of oil. On the way back to the port, there’ll be a photo stop at the Emirates Palace, a five-star hotel and one of the most extravagant buildings in the world.
Just so you know, men are required to wear long clothing in the mosque. Ladies are expected to keep their heads, ankles and wrists covered while visiting the mosque. Transparent or revealing clothing is not permitted, and entry can be denied by local security.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity.
