Explore the airy interiors and marbled columns of the massive Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque on this private excursion. With your own guide to lead the way, learn about this massive worship space's record-setting details including the world's largest carpet and third largest chandelier.

Get picked up from your Abu Dhabi hotel and head to the entrance of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque with your private guide and local historian. Follow them inside, passing the mirror-like pools and colonnaded hallways that wrap around the mosque's exterior.

Beneath the massive dome, admire the detail of a carpet created by over a thousand knotters, crane your neck to take in the crystal-filled chandelier that stretches 33 feet (10 m) across, and look for mother of pearl inlays set into the columns supporting the light-filled ceiling. Find out how precious stones and gold were used by architects and designers alike, take another walk outside to get better looks at the mosque's bouquet of minarets, and then head back to the city to get dropped off at your hotel or grab lunch at the Ritz Carlton.
