This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bahrain National Museum

Bahrain National Museum: One of the first museums in the Gulf, the Bahrain National Museum opened in 1988. The site itself, on the edge of the sea, is a tremendous attraction, adding to its contemporary ambience which is influenced by the white travertine façade and dramatic courtyard decorated with contemporary sculptures. The exhibition halls showcase artefacts uncovered in the numerous archaeological sites in Bahrain and underpinning the longstanding history of the island. The rich collection covers 6000 years of Bahrain’s history. In addition to the archaeological exhibits, two halls are dedicated to local customs and traditions, featuring clothing, housing, rituals and traditional crafts.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Al-Fatih Mosque (Great Mosque)

Ahmed Al Fateh Grand Mosque: Set against a backdrop of palm trees and the sea, the Grand Mosque strikes a beautiful picture. With its exquisite Bahraini architecture, crowned by the world's largest fiberglass dome and blessed with tranquility reserved for the holiest of holy places, the Grand Mosque truly lives up to its name. Though non-Muslim visitors are welcome, it is important to dress modestly, cover your head (for women) and take your shoes off before entering.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Beit Al Qur'an

Bait Al Quran: Housing one of the world’s most treasured possessions. The Museum here has ten exhibition halls that offer a glimpse of rare books, manuscripts and other religious motifs. There are also manuscripts from nonIslamic countries including China and Spain, apart from those of Islamic nations. Calligraphy, which forms a vital part of Islamic culture, is also represented here through works of master calligraphers.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Moda Mall - Bahrain World Trade Center

The Bahrain World Trade Center (Photo Stop): The Bahrain World Trade Center is 240m (787ft) high and the twin tower complex located in Manama was built in 2008. It is the first skyscraper in the world to integrate wind turbines into its design.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: King Fahd Causeway

King Fahad Causeway: Opened in 1986, this remarkable 25km feat of engineering links Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. It is one of the most expensive bridges in the world. The causeway traverses Umm Al Nasan Island, which is a sanctuary for wildlife and at the halfway point there is a facility area, including a tower restaurant, which you can visit even if you don't travel the whole distance to Saudi Arabia. Note: The tower is under reconstruction.
