The Basics

The Grand Mosque is one of the UAE’s most famous attractions. Entrance is free and complimentary guided tours run throughout the day, including an evening sunset tour. The mosque also features on most city sightseeing tours, whether you want to explore on a full-day or half-day excursion, and many city tours also visit other notable points of interest such as the Corniche, Yas Island, Ferrari World, and the Heritage Village. It’s also possible to see the mosque, along with other Abu Dhabi highlights, on an action-packed day trip from Dubai.

Beautiful Mosque - Got Sick from Other Passengers

Sheikh Zayed Mosque Half Day Tour from Dubai by OceanAir™️
Our guide (and driver) were wonderful. They were on time, kind, and informative. We loved the mosque tour. My only recommendation would be to actually stick to the rules of negative PCR test. The policy is there but people boarded our bus without a negative PCR test. They were coughing, sneezing, and obviously sick. This was the only group tour we engaged in and then I was sick (fever, coughing, sore throat, etc).

When to Get There

The mosque is open daily, except on Fridays which are reserved for worship. Due to the heat, it’s best to visit early in the morning or in the late evening. Golden hour, just before sunset, is the best time to capture photos of the magnificent structure.
