Best Free Tours in Abu Dhabi

Named the safest capital in the world, Abu Dhabi is a secret tourist destination blossoming in a superb natural environment. Like Manhattan, it enjoys a privileged location on a beautiful island jutting out into the sea. In fact, Abu Dhabi’s striking skyline of high towers and skyscrapers is set against a backdrop of extensive deserts and the blue waters of the Arabian Gulf. Do you want to discover this amazing destination without breaking the bank? Then luck is on your side! Thanks to its manicured infrastructures and its wonderful coastal location, Free Walking Tours in Abu Dhabi are perfect for discovering the city with a free guide, especially in the morning or at sunset, when tourists can enjoy the coolness of the ocean breeze. For newcomers, we recommend joining an introductory tour, such as the Essential Abu Dhabi Free Walking Tour. It is the perfect way to unravel the history of the city, while getting an introduction to the main parks, gardens, and public beaches.

Highlights of a Free Tour in Abu Dhabi

The capital of the United Arab Emirates is an industrious city that attracts both expats and adventurous tourists from around the world due to its spectacular luxury hotels, outdoor activities, vast deserts, rich heritage and beautiful beaches. While Dubai is mostly known for its ultra-modern skyscrapers and flashy shopping malls, Abu Dhabi is an eco-friendly destination with lots of sport venues, as well as the gatekeeper of the local traditional culture. The main historical highlight you will visit on an Abu Dhabi City Tour is the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the biggest and most spectacular mosques in the whole world. This massive structure intentionally blends different Islamic styles, and is also home to the largest hand-woven carpet! Art lovers will be surprised to find the Louvre Abu Dhabi here—a huge international gallery built to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western art. Also, F1 fans can’t miss the Yas Marina Circuit, host to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Things to Do in Abu Dhabi

Just a short ride from Dubai, Abu Dhabi is the second largest city in the United Arab Emirates and a flourishing tourist destination in the Middle East. Travelers coming from the hectic and glamorous Dubai will be surprised to discover how much quieter (and more expensive) Abu Dhabi is. This city, located on an island in the Persian Gulf, is a paradise for nature enthusiasts and lovers of outdoor activities. Apart from Free Tours in Abu Dhabi, there are plenty of boat cruises (including speedboat sightseeing tours!), camel rides, jeep tours, and multi-day desert adventure trips available. At sunset, put your walking shoes on and take a stroll along the stunning Abu Dhabi Corniche. Walking along this 8 km (5 miles) promenade, you will find well-kept paths, statues, chic restaurants, and stunning beaches (but remember that the locals prefer to swim fully clothed!). The dining and shopping scene may be slightly less diverse than in Dubai, but Yas Mall will provide a full day of entertainment.
