The programme
  • Leaving the dock behind us, we begin our tour of Abu Dhabi, a city situated on a small peninsula surrounded by a tiny archipelago, founded in 1761 by the Bani Yas tribe. The name of the city, which means “father of the gazelle”, was chosen as a tribute to the legend which tells that it was a gazelle that led the first tribe in Abu Dhabi to a fresh water spring.
  • We continue to Al Ittihad Square, whose name means 'union' in Arabic, to immortalise the spectacular, white ivory monuments, including a large coffee-pot and an incense burner symbolising renowned Arabic hospitality and its centuries-old tradition. 
  • We then come to the Heritage Village, which houses a small museum and reconstructed homes which illustrate the day-to-day activities of the local community, before oil was discovered at the end of the 50s. 
  • After stopping for photos at the Marina Café, where we will have time to immortalise the spectacular Abu Dhabi skyline on camera, we will head to Wahat Al Karama, a memorial dedicated to the soldiers who died for their homeland, consisting of 31 imposing aluminium-plated plaques on top of each other.
  • Then, before we head to the airport, we will make a final stop to take photos of the Grand Mosque.
