Enjoy an exotic breakfast treat from Le Vendôme Brasserie, followed by a pick-up at Emirates Palace by Emirates Adventures Tours, who will share a brief history of Abu Dhabi.

Start with the Heritage Village, offering full insight into Abu Dhabi’s past, and next, visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, a testament to the city’s religious traditions. Learn more about the falcon, the UAE’s traditional bird, at the Falcon Hospital, where you’ll lunch. Round off the day with a spectacular desert safari, which includes a visit to a camel farm. Gear up for a dune bashing experience in 4×4 vehicles, whose drivers will guide you across the iconic red dunes of Abu Dhabi. Unwind with a relaxing barbecue dinner in the peace and tranquility of the desert.


We recommend the Marina Mall for the most modern boutiques and a huge variety of luxury stores. You should also try the Abu Dhabi Mall, the largest in Abu Dhabi, and then Madinat Zayed for traditional attire.


Take in an aerial view of Abu Dhabi by helicopter. Enjoy a day trip to the garden city Al Ain, home to the palace of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the UAE. Built by Sheikh Zayed the First between 1891 and 1898, Al Jahili Fort was used both as a fort and a royal summer residence.
