Stop At: Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Street، - 5th St - الروضة - أبو ظبي - United Arab Emirates

Your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel/ accommodation and take you to the imposing Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This is one of the most prominent symbols of contemporary Islamic architecture in the world. It took 11 years to complete this immense mosque, which covers over 30 acres of Land. 

The incredible view of the Grand Mosque will be a feast for your eyes as it combines the cultural diversity of Islamic art with modern architecture and design. The exterior surfaces of the Grand Mosque are covered in Sivec marble from Greece and Macedonia and its main dome is one of the largest mosque-domes in the world.

Get to the Mosque to watch its rich traditional designs from floor to ceiling. The mosque offers plenty of attractions, most notable among them are the world’s largest hand-woven carpet (measuring around 60,570 sq ft. this carpet was hand-woven by about 1,200 - 1,300 carpet knitters), the world's largest marble mosaic floral design, the world's third-largest chandelier (that adorns the main prayer hall), and glass panels studded with Swarovski crystals.

The Mosque interiors are richly decorated with verses of the Holy Quran in three varieties of Arabic calligraphy. As you move around the premises you can see the reflective pools that surround the Mosque, which in turn amplify its beauty. Overall you will never get tired exploring this gigantic structural masterpiece. After completing the Mosque visit and a few memorable photo sessions, you will be dropped back at your hotel/ accommodation.

Amazing tour guide. It was such a pleasure to share this experience with somebody so professional and dedicated to his work. I had a great time and I would recommend Shan to anyone who wants to explore the mosque! PS: he is incredibly good at taking pictures!

Our tour guide was spectacular. He was friendly, knowledgeable and gave us time to take pictures and explore o our own. This was truly a half day experience, so make sure you plan accordingly, i.e. do not plan anything earlier than 2.30pm that same day. They communicated with us the previous day to let us know about the pick up time. They arrived on time and we picked up other passengers on the way. Long local Abaya were provided to all women to make sure we were compliant with the mosque's dressing rules. Men should not wear pants above knees, women should cover legs, arms and hair. We had to present negative PCR test (taken within 1 week) to enter the Mosque. The tour guide explained a bit of history about UAE, Dubai and Abu Dhabi during the first 30min, and then gave us some quiet time to rest (~1hr) while we drove to the Mosque. The Mosque itself is very impressive. There are several stations for taking pictures, and the guide was super nice in taking pictures of us along the way. He explained the main features of the mosque, inside and outside.   Once we finished walking through the mosque, we had about ~1hr to explore on our own, take additional pictures, and get some food in the mall before departure. I highly recommend this experience! I wish I remember the name of the tour guide, but I am sure they are all highly qualified given the professionalism of ours.

Ziad was an amazing guide, he was patient and very knowledgable about the UAE & of course the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. Sooo incredibly helpful and I felt as if he went above & beyond from pick up to drop off. Would 100% recommend especially if going solo like i did, he was very welcoming and takes great photos!
