Abu Dhabi Day Trips from Dubai

By Viator, August 2017

4.5 630 Reviews | Add your review

With its show-stopping architecture, glam shopping, and sunny beaches, Abu Dhabi deserves its reputation as a rising star of the Middle East. And under two hours from neighboring Dubai, it's a popular choice for a day trip. Here's how to visit.

Group Tours
A budget-friendly and fun way to experience the highlights of Abu Dhabi is on a group tour from Dubai. Many of these tours include visits to the Corniche, Yas Island, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Heritage Village, and Ferrari World.

Private Tours
For a more personalized experience with greater itinerary flexibility, opt for a private tour. With a guide all to yourself (go ahead and ask all the questions you want), you'll have even more time to acquaint yourself with this modern city by visiting only the attractions you're interested in.

Abu Dhabi from Above
If you think Abu Dhabi is impressive from the ground, wait until you see it from above. A seaplane tour of the city takes passengers soaring from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, offering aerial views of each city's top attractions and a thrilling landing on the water.

Things to Know
  • Most Abu Dhabi day trips last upwards of 8 hours, so prepare for a full day.
  • Round-trip hotel transfer from Dubai is included on most tours.
  • Seaplane excursions include a 45-minute flight and sometimes include time to explore Ferrari World.
  • Abu Dhabi is less than 2 hours from Dubai by car.
