This fascinating half day Abu Dhabi shore excursion
visits two of Abu Dhabi's wonders, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital.
After meeting your guide at the pier you drive along the island-city's eastern shore until you reach the magnificent Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, considered the 3rd largest mosque in the world. You will have the opportunity to visit this mega structure and learn about the stunning architecture as well as the vision of H.H. late Sheikh Zayed, the former President of UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi.

An introduction to the fascinating world of falcons and falconry is followed by a guided tour around the small but well maintained Exhibit Room where you will learn about the tools of a falconer's trade. Stroll across to the treatment rooms where a trained care-giver explains some common ailments and their treatments. Outdoors you will witness an enthralling show as a Bedouin displays his prowess at this sport of Kings. The falcon will exhibit a range of hunting skills essential for survival in the wild. Afterwards, enjoy a brief photo opportunity with these graceful yet powerful birds. A final stop is made at a large free flight cage to watch UAE's national birds live in action.
