Half Day Private Tour

09.00 Our English speaking guide will meet the guests at the hotel lobby & continue tour.

 

The tour starts with the visit to the Al Fateh Grand Mosque. This is the first mosque in the region to open to tourists and is the largest mosque on the island. The exquisite Bahraini architecture, crowned by the world’s largest fiberglass dome, is one to see. Since the mosque is blessed with tranquility reserved for the holiest of holy places, it is important to dress modestly and remove footwear before entering. Women should cover their head.

 

Your next stop is Bahrain National Museum for a walk through a wonderful collection of exhibits, from contemporary Bahraini paintings, sculptures and ceramics, to scenes depicting life in the Delmon civilization of 6000 years ago, and even a reconstructed burial mound, complete with skeleton. View the beauty of Arabic calligraphy, including a beautiful display of illuminated Qur’ans and other religious documents. Take closer look at traditional trades and crafts, which are cleverly displayed in a reconstruction of a typical souq of the 1930s.

 

Then your driver will take you and your group to Arad Fort, built in the style of Islamic forts in the 15th and 16th centuries. Due to its strategic location overlooking various sea passages of Muharraq Island, Arad Fort was used as a defensive fortress throughout history, from the time Bahrain was occupied by the Portuguese in the 16th century to the reign of Shaikh Salman Bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa in the 19th century.

 

You will then break for lunch before heading over to Al Areen Wildlife Park, the only Nature Reserve in Bahrain. Enjoy the rich habitat of native birds and mammals. Try to snap a pic of the exotic birds. Or just witness the beauty of the wild gazelles and Oryx. Explore the park at your leisure before regrouping and making your way to the Bahrain International Circuit, the only premier motor sport venue in the Middle East region. The International Circuit was Initiated by His Highness Crown Prince Shaikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Honorary President of the Bahrain Motor Federation, and opened in 2004. The spot now hosts the annual Bahrain Grand Prix, a round of the FIA Formula One World Championship. Get your adrenalin rush fix before packing up for your trip back to your hotel.
