Our bus and guide will meet you at the port of Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi, capital and second most populated city of the United Arab Emirates, was founded in 1761. The city, elegant and modern, is a fascinating mix of tradition and modernity.

During the tour you will visit the following points of interest: 

Sheikh Zayed Road: It is the longest road from the Emirates, which stretches from Al Silah in the emirate of Abu Dhabi and ends at the emirate Ras Al Khaimah, border with Oman. In Abu Dhabi it runs parallel to the coast.

Sheikh Zayed Mosque: known as the Great Mosque, one of the most incredible constructions in the world. Both the exterior of the mosque and its interior will not leave anyone indifferent.

Heritage Village: This open-air museum is a replica of a traditional village on an Oasis where we can admire the Bedouin tradition and the traditional aspects of the desert lifestyle.

The Corniche: popularly known as the "Manhattan of the Gulf", due to the profusion of parks, gardens, magnificent mosques and wonderful fountains.

Marina Mall and Hotel Emirates Palace (photos stop): this is the most expensive luxury hotel in the world.

Louvre Museum (photo stop): Opened in 2017, this architectural work combines art and light in a unique space. Its most characteristic element and hallmark is the steel dome. This vault is composed of several layers of geometric mosaics that let in the rays of light generating a magical effect.
