Excellent, informative tour with a guide who really knew what he was talking about. I've lived in the UAE for several years and this has been the best tour so far. The guide has lived in Sharjah for many years and we found him really interesting to listen to. Would highly recommend tour.
Since having problems with previous two tours in Dubai, we were given a different driver for this one. He was excellent and the tour was very interesting. He took us to the museum which was great and other places of interest. Plenty of photo stops. He didn't rush us and it was a very enjoyable morning. We were told by our previous day's guide that there was nothing to see in Sharjah. There was plenty. Would recommend this tour.

Definitely would do again. Got to see traditional Arab buildings, mosques and the beautiful area of Sharjah.
Tour starts from Sharjah. It would be more convenient to stay in a hotel in that area
Doing what: Day Tour to the East Coast - Orient Express
I am glad the time changed to leaving Sharjah at 7:00: traffic in Dubai is always horrible. Visiting the Grand Mosque was an incredible experience as was seeing the village shops in Abu Dhabi: not impressed with lunch at the mall or our guide leaving to do another trip and the driver returning us.
Sharjah is really just an extension of Dubai, which I didn't find to be a very interesting place overall. Plenty of international designer shops if that's what you're into. The tour made a pleasant change from Dubai however and I would recommend it. It's easy to book this tour when you get there though.
The guide was great. We learn so much about life in Dubai and we are quite hard tourists to satisfy. Traffic to Sharjah is crazy however this did not influence the tour, once the roads are finished the trip will be enjoyable. Town is worth seeing cause it is different from hectic Dubai. Life seem to be more peaceful in this emirate.
A good intro to Sharjah. This tour was really nice but there were so many things we passed by that I would have liked to have seen also, or at least stopped for photos, that I think some additional time would make it even better. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and nice. I booked a taxi the next day and spent several more hours at the places we missed, something you can do fairly cheaply there.
Sharjah was so different to Dubai with its government buildings, roundabouts with their sculptures to represent different aspects of the Emirates and Sharjah was definitely worth seeing. The tour leader was excellent.
It was nice to know a little bit about Sharjah, but by the end of the tour you get tired because of the amount of stops.
