Abu Dhabi is the largest emirate in the UAE and is home to a huge range of activities and sights. Abu Dhabi tours are an excellent way to see local attractions during your stay.
Sightseeing tours of Abu Dhabi
Many visitors begin their tour of Abu Dhabi in its vibrant city centre. The main city of Abu Dhabi is just as spectacular as its neighbour Dubai, with an equally thrilling skyline. Choose a sightseeing bus tour of Abu Dhabi for a convenient way to see the main sights, including the stunning Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the bustling Corniche and the cultural attractions of Saadiyat Island.
For a thrilling way to see Abu Dhabi’s inspiring landscape, choose a speedboat tour or a catamaran tour. From the sea, visitors have a memorable view of this enchanting city and a dinner cruise on a traditional dhow offers the unique chance to see Abu Dhabi illuminated at night. For an incomparable birds-eye tour of Abu Dhabi, helicopter tours leaving from the Marina Mall are highly recommended.
Tours outside the city centre
Leaving the city behind, desert safaris are one of the emirate’s most popular tours. Abu Dhabi is surrounded by dessert, and a trek into this seemingly endless expanse of sand promises epic dunes and romantic sunsets. Evening safaris may include a traditional outdoor barbeque and overnight stays in the desert can be arranged.
Tours of the ancient settlement of Al Ain, once known as the ‘Oasis City’ will appeal to history enthusiasts, while the region of Al Gharbia – a spectacular dessert that boasts picturesque beaches and secluded islands – is an essential stop for adventurous travellers in Abu Dhabi.
