Grandiose, Modern, Timeless: Abu Dhabi Shore Excursions

Abu Dhabi shore excursions offer a new view of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that highlight the city’s glamour and prestige as a center of culture, shopping, and history. From a cruise to Abu Dhabi, you can venture out into the desert on a guided camel ride or enjoy high-end shopping at boutiques in the city. Abu Dhabi is a city of multitudes, and there are shore excursions for every type of traveler available here.

Take a hop-on, hop-off bus tour of Abu Dhabi where you can choose your own adventure and plan your day how you’d wish. The route includes some of Abu Dhabi’s most famous sites, like the Abu Dhabi Louvre Museum and the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The Abu Dhabi Louvre opened in 2017 and is a testament to human achievement, boasting some of the hardest-to-acquire art pieces in the world. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is one of the largest and most ornate in the United Arab Emirates. Here you can enjoy the opulence of the mosque and watch as thousands of visitors make their daily prayers here. Head to the Emirates Palace Hotel for a behind-the-scenes tour of how the hotel prepares for royal visits.

Plus, there are more ways to see the United Arab Emirates than just on foot. On Abu Dhabi cruise excursions, a tour of the city by boat is one of the best ways to take in the city’s skyline and understand its massive scale. For outdoor and adventure enthusiasts, the desert and dunes of Al Sama aren’t far from the city of Abu Dhabi. You can learn about the Bedouin population and camel farms in the area and visit Al Wathba Camel Racetrack, where you’ll see how camels are trained for races. Abu Dhabi shore excursions aren’t complete without a trip to the Rub al Khali, the largest sand desert on the planet.
