    What to Expect
    Our guide will meet you at your select location in Dubai and then we will drive to the marvellous Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Within 90 minutes of the drive, we will arrive at our destination. One of the top 10 largest mosques in the world, this mosque is capable to hold more than 40,000 worshipers at a time. Once you enter the mosque you will be stunned by its priceless attractions - beautiful floral mosaics and work of arts made using gold, silver and marble.

    You will also get to see the world’s largest hand-woven carpet. The mosque interiors are luxuriantly adorned with verses of Holy Quran in three different styles of Arabic calligraphy. As you walk around this place you will get to see the reflective pool that encircles the mosque. All together this holy place will leave you amazed.

    When you are done visiting the mosque we will take you back to the select location or hotel in Dubai.
