    Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque 🕌
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    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.

Ocean air travels is a very professional tour company & the key highlight of the experience was that communication with them was super easy and quick, they were available for chat on whatsapp almost all the time and guided us at every step. We ended up booking 2 tours with them.
Regarding the Abu Dhabi trip, our guide Ahmed Hassan was very interactive and knowledgeable since he kept giving us information about the place, the culture and detailed history about the places we would be visiting. Very soft spoken and polite, Always had a smile on his face and ever ready to put forward a helping hand. He protected us from unnecessary forced buying of local goods. He even assisted us with good photos at perfect locations and timing. I would highly reccomend Ahmed Hassan as a perfect tour guide as he made our experience memorable.
The day trip to Abu Dhabi is highly recommended since it covers all the major tourist spots and if time permits they also offer to take you to the local carpet making area.

What a great morning. Our pick up was prompt and our guide was very helpful. He was full of very interesting detail about both the Mosque and the UAE. What a fantastic site when you first approach the Mosque photos do not do it justice.

A must do visit if you are in UAE. The most awe inspiring building, a real feast for the senses, and spiritually a place of holiness and consideration. The mosaics, marble and gold leaf have to be seen to be believed.

We took a tour with a guide Hassam and driver. Clean air con mini bus. Punctual pick up time, freshly laundered abayas for the ladies. Efficient and informative commentary. Hassam was the best guide one could wish for, constantly making sure we were all present and correct and well hydrated.

Value for money this was the best tour by miles we did in Dubai. The day exceeded our expectations. We cannot recommend Hassam highly enough.

This was a wonderful experience, a true “not to miss”.

The Mosque is absolutely beautiful and the Louvre Abu Dhabi is an extension of the cultural experience we have in Paris.

Going on a tour provided us the opportunity go relaxed and to be properly introduced to the UAE by our guide A. Hassan, whose professionalism,service and friendliness was 7*.

A big thank you to A. Hassan for making our experience so wonderful, enriching and fun. My husband and I fully recommend this trip. It was totally worth it.
