Emerging from the desert’s sands like a mirage, Abu Dhabi's bold, brash and brilliant skyline continues to reach new heights. The extravagance on show can be dizzying at times, but it’s counterpointed by authentic history and culture, and majestic religious statements. You’ll shrink before the scale of the 50 exquisite, pearl-white domes of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, which is the UAE's largest and most revered religious space. View more

A healthy pearl trade, and strategic location, brought prosperity in the 19th century, before the discovery of rich oil reserves propelled the city giddily skywards in the latter half of the 20th century. Nowadays, palatial hotels tower above dazzling ocean and white sands, while ever-reliable weather and remarkable extravagances, make Abu Dhabi a location of unbridled opulence and intrigue. The city's cultural scene is also burgeoning, with a stunning Louvre outpost recently opening for business. Find your bearings by ascending 300 metres to the heights of the Etihad Towers' viewing platform - where you can butter scones while enjoying a 'high tea' in every sense. The relentlessly glorious weather makes the coral-blue sea's sparkle ever-tempting, and at Saadiyat Public Beach you’ll find clear blue waves lapping soft, sugar-white sand. Wade out to enjoy bath-like temperatures of 30 degrees. The Corniche, meanwhile, is a sweeping coastal walkway, stretching for eight kilometres and offering rich views of the coral-blue ocean back-dropped by jagged skyscrapers.

Excursions in ABU DHABI

Abu Dhabi Highlights

Discover the scenic beauty and landmarks of Abu Dhabi during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing tour.


Grand Mosque

Depart the pier for the approximately 30-minute drive to the Grand Mosque. The majestic Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque is probably the most imposing religious and national landmark in Abu Dhabi to date. It is also arguably one of the most important architectural treasures of contemporary UAE society - and one of the most beautiful in the world - initiated no less by the late president HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who is fondly thought of as the father of UAE.


Corniche and City Drive

Next, drive along the spectacular Corniche and around the city of Abu Dhabi, known as the 'Manhattan of the Gulf' due to its profusion of ultra-modern skyscrapers, gleaming white mosques and elegant high-rise apartments. After a photo stop at the tip of the breakwater for a superb view of the city's magnificent skyline, proceed to Yas Island.


Yas Island and Heritage Village

Your drive continues past Yas Island, a 9.75 square-mile (25 square-km) island strategically located between the coast and city of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, with a range of world-class hotels, theme parks, golf courses, mega malls, apartments and villas, and much more. Apart from this, Yas Island hosts the venue for the F1 circuit of Abu Dhabi.


From here, proceed to the Heritage Village, which houses a small museum and depicts the daily activities of the Arab community prior to the discovery of oil before returning to the pier.

Al Khatim Desert Dune Safari

Experience the spectacular desert dunes of Abu Dhabi in a unique and exciting new way during this half-day, off-road dune safari.


Depart the pier via four-wheel-drive vehicle for the approximately 30-minute drive through Abu Dhabi, and on to the Al Khatim Desert. En route, take in scenes of modern Abu Dhabi before leaving the main road, deflating your tires and entering the Al Khatim Desert; home to the highest sand dunes in the world. These constantly shifting sand dunes rise to impressive heights of up to 984 feet (300 metres).


During your exhilarating dune-ride, your driver expertly navigates over and between the dunes. Afterward, refreshments are served between the dunes before re-inflating the tires and commencing the approximately 1.25-hour return drive to the pier.

Louvre Abu Dhabi & Qasar Al Hosn

Experience a pair of iconic Abu Dhabi museums during this captivating, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Abu Dhabi, Qasr Al Hosn, Watchtower, Inner-Fort, Outer-Palace, Ancient Artefacts and Archives

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to Qasr Al Hosn, the oldest and most significant building in Abu Dhabi, and site of the city's first permanent structure, the Watchtower. Built in the 1790s, this commanding structure overlooked the costal trade routes and protected the growing settlement established on the island. Qasr Al Hosn is comprised of two major iconic buildings, the Inner Fort (originally constructed in 1795) and the Outer Palace (1939-45). This former home of the ruling family and seat of government was converted into a museum in 2018. Your guided visit offers a unique opportunity to learn about the evolution of Abu Dhabi, from a settlement reliant on fishing and pearling in the 18th century to a modern, global metropolis, with displays of artefacts and archival materials dating as far back as 6000 B.C.


Louvre Abu Dhabi, Art Museum, Permanent Gallery, Temporary Gallery

Next, re-board your coach and head to the iconic Louvre Abu Dhabi, the first universal museum in the Arab World that conveys the spirit of openness of cultures. As one of the premier cultural institutions located in the heart of the Saadiyat Cultural District, this art-lovers dream displays the works of historical, cultural and sociological significance, from ancient times to the contemporary era. Designed by Pritzker-prize winning architect Jean Nouvel, the Louvre Abu Dhabi encompasses approximately 11,003 square yards (about 9,200 square metres) of galleries. Included are the Permanent Gallery and a Temporary Gallery, which is enriched by loans from many notable French museums, including the Musee du Louvre, Musee d'Orsay and Centre Pompidou.


Water System, Lace Dome

Recreating parts of UAE's integral cultural elements, Nouvel designed a falaj-inspired water system that runs through the museum and was inspired by ancient Arabian engineering. The orderly lace dome borrows inspiration from the interlaced palm leaves traditionally used as roofing material in many parts of the country, and results in an enchanting play of light. By virtue of its juxtaposition of different civilisations in the same spaces, the Louvre Abu Dhabi illustrates similarities and exchanges from shared human experiences that transcend geography, nationality and history. At the conclusion of your tour, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.

Panoramic Abu Dhabi & High Tea at Emirates Palace

Embrace the beauty, traditions and culture of the United Arab Emirates during this tour of Abu Dhabi, and High Tea at the Emirates Palace Hotel.


Depart the pier for the approximately 30-minute drive to the spectacular Emirates Palace Hotel. Upon arrival, proceed for High Tea accompanied by a variety of sandwiches, cakes and canapes. Afterward, your guide escorts you on a tour of the areas accessible to the public and recounts the history of this fascinating establishment.


Next, re-board your coach for a sightseeing tour of Abu Dhabi, known as the 'Manhattan of the Gulf' due to its profusion of ultra-modern skyscrapers, gleaming white mosques and elegant high-rise apartments. Along the way, a photo stop is made at the Corniche, which offers an excellent view of the city skyline. Additional sights to be seen include the Palace, Heritage Village, the Al Husn Fort, the Dhow Yard, and the fish market at the port. Your tour concludes back at the pier.

Qasr Al Watan & Wahat Al Karama Visit

Discover the scenic beauty and newest attraction of Abu Dhabi during this half-day sightseeing tour.


Qasr Al Watan

Depart the pier and start day with a visit to Qasr Al Watan, a 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. Qasr Al Watan is more than just a palace, it is an enriching journey in a contemporary setting that reveals and reflects on governance, knowledge and craftsmanship.


Wahat Al Karama

Afterwards, continue to Wahat Al Karama - the name literally translates to "oasis of dignity." The site is a permanent tribute and war memorial to honor UAE's martyred soldiers and other Emiratis who sacrificed their lives for the service of the nation. Wahat Al Karama is a place where HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan's vision to immortalize the memories of the heroes of the country, comes to life.


After the visit, enjoy a panoramic drive through Yas Island, a home to the Famous Ferrari World, and pass by the Formula 1 Circuit before concluding your tour back at the pier.
