Note from Viator: Thanks Anthony. We appreciate your feedback, which gives us a great opportunity to review the services provided and the quality of the product. Regarding Hatta pools we would like to advise that there are indeed some pools in Hatta which can be used in some occasions for swimming depending on rain fall. We highlight that pools are for viewing and not available for swimming.
At Hatta Heritage Village there are different sections showing the way of life in such a mountain village. Fortunately, there are descriptions in English in addition to videos (English/Arabic) with full details about the village. Of course, at the end clients can still obtain more information from the driver whenever required. There is indeed a lot of driving within this trip as the Hatta area is far away from Dubai and it takes time to reach that area and also return to Dubai (120 km each).

Sold as day trip, but back @ hotel 2pm.
Guide didn't explain much. Route was not taken as shown on website map.
Return trip was mostly on same route as earlier that day travelled. It was so boring that 2 passengers fell asleep during return drive.
Sorry, this trip is only valued as one star.

Complete waste of time. Driver guide hardly spoke english - when he bothered to speak. Will not be too keen to book with this tour company again since they no longer provide a knowledgible guide.It was simply a morning drive - whole day and back in hotel by 2pm. Not my idea of a day trip. lunch under the palm trees - i think not - more accurate to say at side of road! Very disappointing

We were extremely disappointed with the tour as the driver we had 'Anil' had little english so was unable to answer our questions regarding local culture. Unfortunately our group was not allowed through the Oman border to visit the pools due to government restrictions, however we understand situations do occur that are beyound your control. We were advised the day prior when confirming our reservation that this situation may occur.
