We had a great time. The mosque is so huge and beautiful, simply amazing!! Our guide Hamad Alblooshi took us in a tour around the mosque, he is very knowledgeable and made our experience truly great!! We learned a lot from him. Highly recommend visiting and ask for the tour, it's free!!

Fascinating insight into the workings and daily routines of a hugely impressive mosque.
Khalid was our guide on a tour of most of the key areas of this spectacular place of worship. He made everyone feel at ease and involved the group with lots of questions and fascinating nuggets of information. I strongly recommend taking the tour (which is free anyway) rather than just visiting, because of the increased access.
An excellent hour spent.

Visit via organised tour, you can do yourself ( free) but this was part of tour of three other places and was actually worth the small amount extra you pay, they also provided cloths for ladies to wear ( which was helpful)

Free guided tours of this, the largest mosque in the UAE—and one of 10 largest mosques in the world. Tours last 45-60 minutes departing exactly on the hour from the dome central entry on the east side. It takes at least 30 minutes from the Visitor Center ticket entry until you walk through a Tolerance Path tunnel-like passage and arrive up an escalator to the mosque grounds. The tour is extremely worthwhile and is the only way to actually enter the mosque interior. Otherwise you do a self-guided tour, which just means you basically walk around without gaining any knowledge. The mosque is white and beautiful; photos are permitted, except for the Sheikh’s mausoleum.
Our guide, Abdulah Hasani, really enhanced our visit. His English, which he learned from kindergarten, was excellent. From the main entrance we made our way by 1,096 stunning columns decorated with inlaid semi-precious stone flowers to the Main Prayer Hall on the west side to the North Ablution (washing place).
Well worth coming for the architecture and for the words and thoughts.
The guard, Arthur Yohu, at the top of the escalator was especially helpful and encouraged us to take the excellent free tour.

A beautiful and unusual mosque
As usual, everyone is cordial and the place very clean.
It's also worthwhile to take a 40 minute tour, we were lucky to have Zayed as a guide, that was very informative and pleasant
There is a big free parking lot, the entrance is free as well

This mosque is absolutely stunning and a can't miss if visiting Abu Dhabi. They give a free cultural tour every hours and you should 100% do this short 45 minute tour. The tour takes your into areas you normally cannot visit if just walking around the mosque by yourself.

Our tour guide Shayha was extremely informative and kind in answering all of our questions and taking us behind the rope to some of the cooler vantage points in the mosque.
