I am going to cherish this touring experience with all of my heart and soul. The first place we visited in the city was Grand Mosque. We were astounded by its beauty as it is stunning all the time. The mosque has an impressive architectural style. Most fabulous things for me in the mosque were a beautiful carpet, massive dome and chandeliers. I got the opportunity to pray inside the mosque. We had stops at Etihad towers, Emirates Palace and presidential Palace. We could see a recreated old Arab village at UAE heritage village. It actually transported me back in time.

Very recently I went to Abu Dhabi and guys, it was one of the best. Captivating sightseeing and nice photo opportunities. Visited the Grand Mosque. There is something particular in every nook and corner of this mosque. Most fascinating part was large chandelier and big carpet. Ambience was superb! In my opinion a visit to Grand Mosque is just enough to know the architectural brilliance of Emirates. Corniche was too serene and clean. We had a nice stroll along the beach. Really impressed by Etihad Towers, Emirates Palace, and Presidential Palace. I enjoyed the visit to Heritage village. Various types of things used in the ancient Arabic life were displayed there.

I had the chance to tour the city of Abu Dhabi. First stop was Grand Mosque. It was quite blissful to visit the Mosque. It is massive, well maintained as well as serene for a peaceful prayer. The beautiful atmosphere was fulfilling. Everyone must go there at least once. Architecture of the Emirates Palace, Presidential Palace and Etihad towers is imposing. Visit to the heritage village was informative. As I am much fond of history, the place was very interesting for me. Got a complete idea of Emirati life before the oil discovery. Lot of artifacts to see. Glad we booked this tour.
