Let's Go

Admire two of Abu Dhabi’s high-end structures, the grand mosque and Masdar City. Walk through gold-decorated pillars and shaded walkways to get a clear idea of how Abu Dhabi plans on using its past to build its future.

The Private Abu Dhabi City Tour with Grand Mosque and Masdar City begins the minute you step into our comfortable vehicle and the driver takes you to your first stop, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Punctured with 82 domes of various proportions, the splendid mosque pulls inspiration from Mughal and Moorish architecture. Spanning 30 acres, the mosque has enough space to accommodate around 40,000 worshipers and a well-manicured lawn, the green of which contrasts with the pearly-white of the structure. Housing the world’s largest loomed carpet and inlaid with precious stones, the mosque is a tribute to the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Carpets from Iran, Chandeliers from Germany, Marble from Greece, glass-work from Italy and domes of Moroccan style unite to create the mosque that was envisioned to dictate the peace and unity Islam preaches. After drinking in the magnificence of the Grand Mosque, you will be driven to Masdar City which is currently the size of a village but there’s more to come.

Relying on the sun, desert winds and other renewable sources for energy to power the city the city is set for a zero-carbon imprint, the complete opposite of UAE being one of the largest carbon-print producers. The city doesn’t use cars so our guide will escort you through the city onboard an unmanned electric car resembling a tiny pod. Envisioned to look like a cube from afar, the shaded walkways (a result of buildings built closer to each other) and terracotta walls decorated with Arabic patterns add a unique touch to it. You might even feel like you are in a science-fiction movie. Once you are done exploring the city, your driver will drop you back. Your visit to the Grand Mosque and Masdar city will make you feel like you are in an Aladdin movie and a science-fiction movie, both at the same time
