Abu Dhabi Shore Excursion - This half day tour is perfect for the visitor who wants an overview of the "Manhattan of the Middle East". You enjoy photo stops of Abu Dhabi's skyline plus learn about the Emirate's past and future.

Abu Dhabi translates in Arabic as Father of the Gazelle. and gets its name from the Arabian Gazelle (Dhabi) that were once found in plenty here. After meeting your guide you start your tour of this island city with a leisurely drive to its eastern shores.

You will enjoy a photo-stop at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This mosque is an opulent tribute to H.H. late Sheikh Zayed, the former ruler of Abu Dhabi and President of UAE. As you drive back towards the city you have another photo-stop near the opulent 6-star Emirates Palace Hotel.

Next you visit the Heritage Village where the culture and traditions of the Emirate are reflected in recreated village scenes, providing a glimpse into the simpler life and times before the discovery of oil. Then you stroll to the adjacent Breakwater for breathtaking views of Abu Dhabi's skyline, often referred to as the Manhattan of the Middle East.

A leisurely drive along the glittering tower-lined Corniche brings you to Saadiyat Island, one of two newly developing leisure and entertainment destinations where you will visit Manarat Al Saadiyat, literally meaning a place that provides enlightenment in Arabic for a glimpse of what the near future has in store for Abu Dhabi.
