Itinerary

Your Abu Dhabi city tour from Dubai starts when you meet OceanAir Travels’ tour guide at your selected location or hotel. Your drive begins in an AC vehicle to Abu Dhabi, which is about 178 KM away from Dubai (approx. 01:45 hours). Enjoy the ride while listening to your tour guide’s stories about one of the richest cities in the world. Once you reach the destination, start with a visit to one of the top Abu Dhabi attractions - the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. One of the biggest mosques in the world, which accommodates some 40,000 worshipers inside its walls, this Mosque showcases the cultural diversity of the Islamic world. It’s an expression of a visionary leader who believed that nothing is impossible and the most gracious achievements start from the very heart.

Then we will drive down to the city’s Corniche, an eight-kilometer long pristine waterfront which has been awarded coveted Blue-flag status, a guarantee for clean and safe bathing water. Next, pass by the glamorous Emirates Palace. It has got 302 rooms and 92 suites, with many furnished in gold and marble! Then take a look from the other side at the adjacent luxurious Presidential Palace. Proceed further for another photo-stop at a landmark Abu Dhabi structure, the Etihad Towers, which is more famously known as the Skyscraper in “Fast & Furious 7” movie. Watch how five elegant towers stand together, giving wonderful views to onlookers!

Our Abu Dhabi tour from Dubai continues as we take a quick look of the Emirate’s history at the UAE Heritage Village. Traditional sides of the desert way of life, including a camp with coffee pots, a tent goats’ hair, and the falaj system, are displayed in the open area museum. There you may visit the Abu Dhabi Museum that’s located inside the Heritage Village. In this campus you will also come across various craftsmen exhibiting time-tested native skills. Soon it’ll be time for a one-hour break. Re-energize yourselves after all those visits with a tasty lunch at the Heritage Village Resort, or, at the Marina Mall (at your own expenses; unless otherwise you’ve availed the lunch option with advance payment).

Then visit the Sheikh Zayed Centre (closed on Fridays & Saturdays) adjoining the Heritage Village - a ‘must not miss’ in your things to do in Abu Dhabi. There, get familiarized with the exemplarily life of the late UAE ruler, HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Father of UAE Nation. It was his vision that united the Seven Emirates and turned the country into a global power. We will now be going more into the old-world Abu Dhabi with a visit to the Dates Market, which is located inside the historic fruit and vegetable market at Port Zayed in Abu Dhabi. Hardly in any other marketplace you will find such a wide range of Middle Eastern Date Fruits... As you walk along numerous shops of dried fruits and dates, you may also stop in between to taste a few.

Finally, before our return, we shall have a taste of the city’s newer attractions as we take you for a photo session at the man-made structural beauty, Yas Island. Once you finish the tour in Abu Dhabi you will be driven back to your selected location or hotel.

"My parents say this company is the best"

I booked the tour for my parents. They were prompt and helping me a lot in booking. I am happy. The information in the website was very clear and helpful. That made me confident in booking the tour. And about the trip, my parents said they had a great time. The company provided them with the best guide, who was very talkative. They said they enjoyed everything. The guide took care of everything. I am so happy that I chose this company for my parents.

"A day to behold."

A lovely day to behold in memories. Even though both Dubai and Abu dhabi lies in the same emirates. How different are they?!!! From the very first road to Abu Dhabi itself I could sense that change. Everything was pure as a white bread. One hell of a tour idea, very smart. I will definitely speak highly about this tour company.
