The Basics

Wander the pathways of the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village and see Bedouin palm-and-mud dwellings, learn about the falaj irrigation systems that were once used to cultivate crops, and see the artifacts at the small museum. Other attractions include a replica souk, a gift shop selling spices and souvenirs, and demonstrations of traditional crafts, such as spinning, metalworking, and pottery-making.

The village is included on most Abu Dhabi sightseeing tours, which typically include stops at other city landmarks such as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. You can also pair a trip to the village with a city sightseeing tour or attractions such as Ferrari World and the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Full-Day Tour of Abu Dhabi City From Dubai, Day Trip with Guide
Everything was well planned. On time pick up at the hotel, structured tour. Tour guide was very informative and jolly. Made us aware of the rules at the different places visited specially at the mosque. Tour guide was professio ally dressed and the vehicle is clean. He even gave us water. One little thing, they should have a trash bin inside the van.

Ferrari World Theme Park and Abu Dhabi Tour
It was a great experience in general! Since the majority of the group were from India, the guide tend to speak their language and some time forgot to speak English. Tour at the Grand Mosque is so quick so mind yourself about time. Also prepare to follow the rules. My recommendation is that if you are not willing to do that with respect, just don’t go! It’s a long day so prepare to walk and for the trip back to Dubai. I recommend it 100%

Abu Dhabi Full-Day Sightseeing Tour from Dubai
So convenient to be picked up in a private car directly from the hotel. Great overview of Abu Dhabi, exactly what I was looking for with only a 3-day stay in UAE. Syed was a great driver and got us to all the sights on time. Just note to travelers that you will only be seeing the outsides of attractions, not entering except for the Grand Mosque.

When to Get There

The Heritage Village is open from mid-morning until early evening Saturday–Thursday, and from mid-afternoon until late at night on Fridays. The site gets crowded in the late afternoons (especially during the November–March peak season) so try and visit in the morning to avoid crowds and take advantage of cooler weather.

What to do Nearby

The sandy beach just outside the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village is studded with traditional wooden fishing boats and offers spectacular views of the city’s skyscraper-framed Corniche. After visiting the beach and village, spend some time at the nearby Marina Mall, which is about a 15-minute walk away and boasts a variety of shops and cafés.
