Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Overall quite a comprehensive tour with a knowledgeable guide, but two unexpected changes to the itinerary did put a shadow on what was an otherwise good day.
Firstly, I booked this tour as it did NOT include a visit inside the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. When we arrived at the Mosque, we were informed that we were to enter. Unfortunately,my wife and a couple of other females did not have the necessary covering garments, therefore had to wait in the bus for 45 minutes whilst the others did the tour.
Secondly, only after lunch we were informed that the visitor center at Manarat Al Saadiyat "was closed" that day and we would be heading back to Dubai. Not even a stop at the UAE Pavilion.
Just a couple of points to consider when booking this tour.
Full of history and emotion
Volcano excellent, falls a little disappointing. Shame about our driver/guide "bombarding" all with his beliefs. Even too much for those who share his faith.
Tropical plantation well worth the trip alone
