Abu Dhabi City Tour

The capital of the UAE and the country's largest city, Abu Dhabi is home to some of the most impressive buildings, most exclusive hotels and most fascinating attractions in the Middle East. A fantastic destination for an unforgettable day trip, a stop in Abu Dhabi will make a great addition to your stay in Dubai.

Located just 170 km south west of Dubai, on the shores of the glittering Persian Gulf, the vibrant city of Abu Dhabi is one of the region’s most fascinating metropolises. For holidaymakers staying in Dubai, this tour is the perfect opportunity to see a little more of the UAE and explore some of the country’s most iconic attractions.

Though there is evidence of human civilisation at the site now occupied by Abu Dhabi going back millennia, the city you’ll see today is distinctly modern with towering skyscrapers dominating its skyline. Thanks to the oil boom that began in the 1950s, the city is incredibly rich, something attested to by its stunning buildings, exclusive shops and high-end eateries. However, in amongst the modern buildings and developments are still a number of historic sights, lush green parks and traditional neighbourhoods, ensuring that tourists will have plenty to see and do during their tour of the city.

As Abu Dhabi is actually located on an island, the tour will cross one of the city’s two bridges to enter the metropolis. Once inside, you’ll explore some of Abu Dhabi’s architectural delights as well as a number of its stunning palaces and spectacular civic buildings.

The tour will then take you for a relaxing drive along the beautiful Corniche, before taking you to the fascinating Dhow Yard where you’ll learn how these elegant boats are carefully hand crafted to this day. Next, you’ll visit Abu Dhabi’s vibrant fish market before enjoying spectacular views of this desert metropolis from the city’s waterfront.

The perfect tour for holidaymakers that want to get out and see more of the UAE, the Abu Dhabi City Tour will give you the chance to see the country’s undulating landscape and explore its fascinating capital. Why not book yourself a place on a tour now and make your next trip to Dubai even better?
