Description

The tour ‘Best of Abu Dhabi' is the ideal way to get to know and to see more of this wonderful Capital of UAE. We start with a photo stop of the Square of the Union with a great monument in white which reminds us of Arabian Heritage & Hospitality, such as a great pot for Coffee or the Frankincense Burner amongst others. After a drive over the Corniche you will reach the water-brake and stop for a view of the impressive city skyline, often called in the past “Manhattan of Arabia”. A visit of the Heritage Village of Abu Dhabi will remind you of past Abu Dhabi and how life used to be simple and very humble until the discovery of oil at the end of 1950's. After that you will visit the “Zayed Exhibition". This Exhibition will provide you with a glimpse into the life of the founder of UAE “Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan”, with his simplicity and his desire to be close to his people. It showcases the huge contribution that the late Sheikh offered to his nation & to the world alike. He was known for being just, generous & always there for the sake of the poor around the world. In addition, the two supplement galleries showcase the first days of finding oil in Abu Dhabi in 1958 by the company ADCO and there is also another section dedicated to the education of Abu Dhabi police from the early days of its founding until recent days. We will visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, known as the white mosque and classed as one of the largest in the world. From there we have a panoramic drive over the bridges that connect Abu Dhabi with the main land towards Yas Island known for the F1 Circuit and Ferrari World, Abu Dhabi before continuing to Saadiyat Island, where the future projects of Guggenheim and Louvre and other great museums will be constructed in the coming decade. The Emirates Palace, the luxurious hotel Palace is awaiting for you to enjoy a delicious dinner, breathe in the air of luxury in Abu Dhabi that fills every corner of this serene paradise. After this fascinating and impressive day we will finally make our way back towards Port Zayed.
