After breakfast at your hotel, you’ll embark on a city tour where you’ll become acquainted with the city’s striking examples of modern architecture, which reflect distinctly Islamic themes captured using modern materials.

Later, visit the magnificent Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, a massive yet beautiful structure that is said to be able to accommodate more than 40,000 worshipers. This stop is an absolute “must see” for anyone visiting Abu Dhabi. In the evening, you’ll enjoy a spectacular Dhow Cruise with a festive dinner — the perfect way to appreciate the beauty of the city under moonlight on a traditionally decorated wooden boat. Your vessel will slip silently across the sea overlooking Lou Lou Island and the Emirates Palace Hotel. (B,D)
