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.

Depart Abu Dhabi and journey back to Dubai for a drop-off at your hotel or designated location.

The tour was amazing and Mohammad Iqbal was the greatest tour guide. He made sure we were ready and provided abayas and scarves for us. He also had water waiting in the bus. He provided great detail about the mosque and facts. I learned so much. He also helped us with photography and all the pictures came out great! I look forward to booking more with him.

Our tour was just great! Our guide Jahan gave us a lot of information about Abu Dhabi and the mosque. He took a lot of time for us and explained everything individually. After the tour we were able to take a semi-permanent break to get food/drink. We were very satisfied and can recommend this tour
