Full description

Depart Dubai and journey to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi by modern air-conditioned vehicle. Relax in comfort on the 90-minute drive with your professional guide. On arrival, marvel at the 8th largest mosque in the world. Spread over 30 acres, the magnificent structure took more than a decade to build and now stands as a showcase for the United Arab Emirate’s Islamic cultural heritage. Roam around the site that can accommodate up to 40,000 worshippers at any one time. Marvel at priceless features, such as the huge Swarovski crystal chandeliers, floral mosaics, and artifacts of gold, silver, and marble.

Be amazed by the gigantic carpet in the main prayer hall. Measuring 60,570 square feet and weighing 35 tons, the carpet was made in Iran and is the result of the toil of thousands of carpet weavers over 2 years. Take stunning memorable photos of the complex and its awe-inspiring architecture, and get a better appreciation of the vision of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the late president of the UAE and the mastermind behind the mosque.

The tour to Abu Dhabi was amazing. One of the best tour I did during my stay. Mohammed Ali arrived on time for the pick up. Very bright guide, always smiling and enthusiastic. We learn more about Dubai and Abu Dhabi on our way the the mosque. He gave me a beautiful Abaya to wear in the mosque and provided water when needed. As a solo traveler I could count on Mohammed Ali to take great pictures. In fact every person on the tour could. He knew the best spot to make pictures. Besides this tour, he also gave tips for the expo 2020. I would definitely recommend this trip with Mohammed Ali. He is a very warm person!

If you are planning to visit the Mosque (which is a must-do from my perspective, if you are visiting UAE), this is the best way to do it. Paolo, our guide, ensured from the beginning of our interaction (a few days before and the night before our trip) that we will have everything in place to enter the Mosque (vaccination / PCR certificates, appropriate clothing, etc.). Paolo is a real rockstar - he gave us some great insights on the mosque's history and told us many other beautiful stories regarding Dubai / Abu Dhabi and all the Emirates. With such a great attitude (always laughing, chit-chatting, taking care of the whole group), Paolo should be the chosen one for this experience.
