The museum at the Heritage Village is one of the favourites of curious travellers. It showcases the old Abu Dhabi before the oil boom. This place is the most recommended venue to visit; it is a memoir of the journey of Abu Dhabi from an ethnic Arabic shell to such a city in boom and bloom and that too in a minimal time span! The museum also has kept copies of Quran, traditional jewellery, and weapons of the early era.

You can witness the replica of the demonstration of a functioning falaj irrigation system that is used in areas of the UAE for the irrigation of the palm groves. Adjoining to this site lies the turquoise blue watered beach which will keep you engaged at its view for a couple of hours. You can visit the picturesque Corinche which lies nearby that will give you ample opportunities to click pictures. Also, on the campus of the Heritage Village, there is a restaurant in which you can savour the Arabic flavours, food and drinks.

The venue is a must-see for travellers who intend to explore the roots of the region they travel or the tourists who want to have a peaceful yet exciting getaway with family or a group of friends!

Great trip with our driver Rana, he was very insightful and great knowledge about each landmark. Highly recommended.
Great Day in Abu Dhabi
cherishjacinthe, 28-09-2022
My friends and I chose this company because it’s one of the few who offer private tours. The ability to customize our own tour was exactly what we were looking for. Maximizing our time in the places we wanted to see and not having to deal with any places we didn’t want was the best. Prior to our tour date, Namrata reached out to me to finalize details and make sure we had the appropriate paperwork to enter the attractions in Abu Dhabi. Two of us didn’t have recent Covid tests and Namrata sent a nurse to our Airbnb the same day to get it taken care of. She was absolutely amazing with coordinating everything for us and very sweet. Rana was our driver the day of the tour. He arrived early and waited for us in the lobby to make sure he was able to escort us to the vehicle. He double checked with us on what we wanted to do for the day and off we went. From start to finish Rana was professional, fun, courteous, and helpful. He went out of his way all day to make sure my friends and I were comfortable and able to see and do everything we wanted. He even helped me with my Arabic (I’m still working on it lol). Lots of things on my bucket list were checked off today. I highly recommend Rana and Namrata!
Une journée à Abu Dhabi

Outstanding day tour of Abu Dhabi with private tour guide and vehicle
189ramachandras, 27-09-2022
We booked this all day private tour on our last day in the UAE, when we had to check out of our Dubai Airbnb in the morning, but had a late evening flight back to the US via Europe. For us it was excellent, because we had a constrained schedule, and this tour offered us flexibility to see all the best sights in Abu Dhabi. Namrata was very responsive in contacting us in advance, and checking that our preferences, schedule and whether we were compliant with the latest Covid requirements to visit public spaces in Abu Dhabi, which are more stringent than what is required to simply enter Abu Dhabi. When we explained we didn't have the required negative PCR tests, she very quickly organized it for us (for an extra fee) - which we needed to do otherwise we could not have gone on the tour at all, and would have lost our final day. On the day, Rana proved to be an excellent driver and tour guide. He started by checking on our schedule constraints, showed up promptly, and outlined several possible tour options asking our preferences. On the day we went, the Louvre Abu Dhabi was closed (we were not that interested in it anyway). Rana suggested the Presidential Palace Qasr Al Watan (for an extra fee), which turned out to be the highlight of our sightseeing in Abu Dhabi. It's an outstanding visit where we saw many architecturally interesting sights. In addition to Qasar Al Watan, we also saw the Grand Mosque, had a quick lunch, visited Heritage village, the Formula 1 track and Ferrari World, and Emirates palace, before being left at the airport in good time to catch our flights. For us it was good value for money, given our schedule constraints, and a very worthwhile day for first time visitors to Abu Dhabi.
Beautiful experience.

Footprints640455, 20-12-2022
The trip was nice and well managed. Although we opted to visit as much landmarks in Abu Dhabi as possible, it went well. We were assisted by Mr. Ali at all landmarks making the trip hassle free. Thanks yo Ali for that.
Magical day in Abu Dhabi - exceeded expectations!
Janet F, 20-12-2022
Our day in Abu Dhabi with Sadik was one of the highlights of our trip to Dubai. He accommodated our custom itinerary masterfully and added several delightful surprises of his own, including the perfect lunch stop. His timing was impeccable and the day flowed smoothly in a relaxed manner. He even timed our visit to the Louvre so we were able to catch the sunset over the water from their exceptional outdoor space.

We felt so well taken care of by Sadik, from his careful driving and attention to our food allergies to making sure I had the right female attire to enter the mosque. He is very knowledgeable and patient and created a magical day for us. Thank you so much, Sadik! We loved every minute of our day with you.

If you are visiting UAE and are looking for an alternative to the typical mass tour of Abu Dhabi we highly recommend this as the way to go.

NKgupta1653, 16-12-2022
Nicely arranged with clean and comfortable car. Best was the driver guide Major Saab who was very knowledgeable and respectful throughout the trip. We had a great time at our own pace
Excellent explorations of UAE!
Michael G, 11-01-2023
The amazing travel desk at the Swishotel in Dubai arranged the private tours to Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. Saddik was our driver to Abu Dhabi - what a treat. Phenomenal architecture and cultural experience! He even helped us get proper attire for our visit to the Grand Mosque. The Presidential Palace was one of the most impressive buildings in the world! He was very pleasant and good English, also driving us to a delightful dinner cruise in Dubai Harbor on the Lotus yacht!
Rana was our driver for Al Ain, a "1000 Places to See Before you Die" book recommendation, and well worth it. It is unreal to learn of the history and the transformation from nomadic life to what is UAE today in just a few decades! The camel market was so intriguing. Both Rana and Saddik went out of their way to take extra special care of us!!
Excellent Experience
SanjeevD164, 11-01-2023

We had a great day, Ali came to pick us up, a lovely friendly guy with fantastic knowledge about all of Dubai. He pointed out everything to us and never rushed us. The tour was great, so good to see some culture, the Prince’s palace was absolutely breath taking, 100% worth paying extra for. It’s was a great tour for us and the kids (16 & 13 yrs).
Thank you Ali and all the best. Sacha & Family

Abu Dhabi City Day Tour
946janat, 20-01-2023
Amazing tour to Abu Dhabi! We had an opportunity to see the Emirates Palace and skyscraper-lined Corniche, among many other interesting places. Our first stop was visiting Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in the early morning time with less crowd that let us enjoy this splendid and magnificent piece of architecture. Even though Louvre Museum Abu Dhabi is optional, we highly recommend it as it is whole another experience. At the end of exhibitions, go to the rooftop coffee place and enjoy the breathtaking view! Our driver Mr. Sadik took us to small but amazing restaurant with local delicious and diverse food! Throughout our whole day tour he gave us interesting facts about UAE, Abu Dhabi and their history.
A great day in Abu Dhabi
Elan_in_Samui, 18-01-2023
Our trip to Abu Dhabi was a well spent day. With Rana as our tour guide and driver we had an enjoyable day in which we learnt a lot about the city and the major attractions.
