Journey through Time Abu Dhabi - Private City Tour

Past & Present - The development of Abu Dhabi

 

The capital is already known worldwide for its historical landmark Qasr Al Hosn. With our private tour you will learn everything about the PAST of the desert city. Find out how a country deeply rooted in tradition is mastering the balancing act between its traditions and today's modernity.

Over a cup of tea or coffee you can enjoy the stunning view of the PRESENT from the Observation Deck in the Jumeirah Etihad Towers.

  • Qasr Al Hosn

In the early afternoon our driver will pick you up from your hotel. We will visit the Qasr Al Hosn Exhibition and learn how this building was firstly constructed as a watchtower by the Bani Yas tribes in the 18th century in order to guard the only source of fresh water in the area and trade routes along the coast.

  • Majilis

Corals and sea stones were used for the construction. Eversince the subsequent generations of the ruling Al Nahyan family have expanded the building and transformed it with walls, new towers, a decorative entrance and a residential district, into an imposing fortress and later on into a legendary palace.

One of the cornerstones of this building is the traditional "Majlis", an essential feature of civilization and cultural heritage in the United Arab Emirates. The Majlis of Qasr Al Hosn has experienced many historical stories and political events and is witness to several developments and important decisions in the history. "Majlis" means place of assembly.

  • Jumeirah Etihad Towers

On the way to Jumeirah Etihad Towers, we will stop at a Majlis, which was built as part of a social and cultural project in the nearby residential area. Despite the economic development and globalization, there is an initiative to establish a Majlis in various districts in order to revive the cultural heritage of the country among the younger generations.

The lobby at the Jumeirah Etihad Towers is a special jewel. Here we will have a little time to admire the ambience of the luxury hotel before we head to the 74th floor and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with a stunning view of the Emirates Palace and this wonderful city. Here on the observation deck, you can let the vastness spread to you and listen to the wind of change in the pulsating desert town.

Then we will bring you back to your hotel.
