Our first stop on your private tour will be Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the main place of worship in the city, which can accommodate up to 42,000 worshippers. This ornate mosque is a piece of art and a masterpiece of Islamic architecture. Note that since this is a functional place of worship, women will need to be covered head-to-toe with long pants, long sleeves, and a headscarf, and men will have to wear long pants. Visiting the mosque will give you the opportunity to learn about the main religion of the UAE.
Next, we’ll stop to admire those world famous mega skyscrapers and take some photos of the skyline and of the stunning Emirates Palace Hotel.
