What to expect

On this tour you will have the opportunity to visit one of the world’s few working Palaces in UAE’s capital city. Once in Abu Dhabi you will visit the recently renovated Qasr Al Hosn, the former residence of Abu Dhabi’s ruling Al-Nahyan family and the site of the island’s only fresh water well. The Fort and Watchtower, built in the 1790s as well as the surrounding Palace built from coral stone bricks in the 1940s, are a living testimonial of Abu Dhabi’s history.

Afterwards, you will head to the Presidential Palace Qasr Al Watan, whose exquisite artisanship celebrates the region’s rich cultural heritage. After a guided tour, you will have time to take photographs or choose from a range of beautifully crafted souvenirs in the Palace gift shop. Your final visit on this tour will be to the opulent Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one the largest in the world. It was funded by H.H. late Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan, former President of the UAE and brought to fruition by UAE’s current President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa Al Nahyan.
