Enjoy a fascinating day out by exploring three of Abu Dhabi’s iconic sights in one eight-hour tour. 

Start at Abu Dhabi International Airport before heading to the Louvre Abu Dhabi, a universal museum covering art and civilisation, which contains myriad priceless items that tell the story of humanity throughout the ages. Don’t forget your camera; you’ll want to capture the structure’s enormous dome, composed of 7,850 stars that filter light through their perforations, creating a dazzling display known as the ‘rain of light’.

Then, enjoy a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, a majestic, welcoming place of worship and one of Abu Dhabi’s most iconic landmarks. This stunning sight is one of the biggest places of worship in the world and is a fantastic place to take photographs. 

Wahat Al Karama is next on the list. This thought-provoking destination is a beautiful, permanent tribute to the UAE's brave soldiers and other Emiratis − recognised as martyrs in the country − who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their nation. 

Finally, head back to Abu Dhabi International Airport and onwards to your next destination.

The impressive and inspiring Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is one of the world’s largest mosques and the only one that captures the unique interactions between Islam and other world cultures. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Founder of the UAE, had a very specific vision for this mosque: to incorporate architectural styles from different Muslim civilisations and celebrate cultural diversity by creating a haven that is truly welcoming and inspirational in its foundation. The mosque’s architects were British, Italian and Emirati, with design ideas borrowed from parts of Turkey, Morocco, Pakistan and Egypt, among other Islamic countries. The end result is a breathtaking, gleaming architectural marvel.
