Emirati Experiences

Tours in Abu Dhabi

Organised by Abu Dhabi's Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT), these tours allow an insight into Emirati culture and traditions. The tours range from a visit to the Al Dana factory, where traditional Emirati sandals are produced (Dhs50 per person) and a food tour munching your way through the city's traditional restaurants, to a trip to a local home.

It's a great way to dig a bit deeper into the rich heritage behind the city's high-rises, shopping malls and theme parks. At the time of writing there were 13 different tours offered, which can all be booked directly on the Visit Abu Dhabi website.
