This particular tour provides an enchanting experience with two of the most crowning attractions of the Capital city of Abu Dhabi- the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Louvre museum. While Grand Mosque exemplifies how a mosque can be something beyond just a place of worship, Louvre (The largest art museum in Arabia) showcases human creativity from the prehistoric times onward. These two wonders will leave you mesmerized like never before!
Our driver will pick you up from the hotel/selected location in Dubai and take you to the first destination of the tour - Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This elegant mosque is true Islamic architectural wonder that blends the traditional as well as contemporary Arabian artistic styles.Sprawling across 30 acres of land, this large mosque can accommodate thousands of worshippers at a time! As you walk around the Grand Mosque’s courtyard, you could see the shining exterior surface of the mosque, which is made up of white Greek and Macedonian tiles. The main dome at the centre of the prayer hall is one amongst world’s largest mosque-domes. Step inside the mosque to see the beautiful traditional designs from floor to ceiling. You can also see the mosque’s other priceless features such as world’s largest hand-woven carpet, large crystal chandeliers, floral artworks, and the glass panels studded with thousands of Swarovski crystals. Do remember to take precious snaps of this inspiring structure.
After spending about 1.5 hours at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, you will be taken by our driver to the Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum, which cannot be seen elsewhere in the world other than France. Being the largest art museum in the Arab World, Louvre houses many artefacts from different parts of the world. On your arrival at the museum, our driver will assist you to enter with tickets. In this museum, you will feel like bathing in sunlight as the sun rays penetrate through its silvery dome. This dome’s pattern is noteworthy as it resembles interwoven palm leaves.As you walk along, you can view an incredible collection of artworks including artefacts from top French museums viz., Louvre, Center Georges Pompidou, Palace of Versailles and Musee d’Orsay. To provide deep insight into different civilizations and culture, these exhibits are displayed chronologically - from ancient times to the present. In addition to all this, Louvre features Children’s Museum, various exhibitions, restaurant, café and a boutique. After completing the full day mosque and museum tour, you will be returned to your hotel / selected location in Dubai.

Our pick-up from the hotel was just perfect, a drive on a 4x4 vehicle and a professional tour guide, what more can you ask for, tell me? We started our tour with a stop at Louvre Abu Dhabi museum, a treat to your eyes sharing a glimpse of modern art and culture from around the world, later we headed towards Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and captured some stunning views, also asked our guide to click some pictures of us posing; captured beautiful portraits. I highly recommend this Abu Dhabi Tour from Dubai to Louvre and Grand Mosque.
