Very interesting and exotic trip in Al Ain with many well organized tours . The guide was very knowledgeable and efficient. Thank you to him and his team. A beautiful day and a lot of memories.
It was an eventful trip overall. It was a little long drive but to get to see the country side was a welcome change. Our guide Yana was very knowledgable.
Nice cultural experience. Learned lots and was in the middle of the dessert and got to see what an oasis looks like.
Excellent !!! The guide and driver were most knowledgeable and willing to help in any way. Every phase of this trip was perfedt
MOSHIUR and SHAMMI
The Al Ain tour started off with full sun above the sky. Owe tour guide was very informed, it was like he was a human wikipedia. The city is Known as the Garden City. \We went to the Al Ain Museum was very interesting, this is one of the most important museums in the UAE. Then we went to a traditional falaj irrigation system were fresh spring water is found. Great Tour.
A thoroughly worthwhile and informative day. Excellent tour guide.
This was a very good tour that got us outside Dubai. We had a most enjoyable time seeing a garden city in the desert. The visit to the camel market and seeing racing camels was most enjoyable as was the visit to the mountain hot springs. A good lunch too. One complaint. We had to be transferred some distance to meet up with the main bus and needed to pick up other travellers on the way. The problem is that there was restricted room in the back of the transfer vehicle - very uncomfortable for someone like me withy two titanium knees. .. !!! Other than this, a good day out to a more traditional desert town...
Good trip. Stopped at several places. Did not spend much time at any of the stops, but that was ok. Guide was ok, she was new and tried hard. Worth the money to see a different part of the UAE.
Really enjoyed this trip. The journey is quite long across rather uninspiring flat desert, but it is well worth it when you get to Al Ain, which is a really interesting city.
The tour was worthwhile. We probably would have liked a bit more detail on the archeological site and a little more time at the museum.
Interesting tour to see something else other than Dubai.
If you're ready to get away from all the activity in Dubai, go where the locals go for a getaway. Al Ain is a calm, laid-back oasis city with lots of history. Include a drive into the mountains for panoramic views. Not an adrenaline-charged tour, but informative and interesting, gives you a different look at the region. Not a crowded private car tour.
I enjoyed this trip but disappointed that we did not go up the mountain. We only stopped shortly by the hot spring within the park on the bottom of the mountain. I got this mainly because I thought we would go up the mountain.
Besides that I enjoyed the tour.
Was interesting. Your guide had good information and offered to stop for a few minutes at the camel race track. Enjoyed the museums, date palm farm and mountain sights
Guide knowledge limited and sometimes making up stories to fill up the gaps but the tour itself is well organized
Tour started off well with visit to forts and museum. Felt a bit rushed and would have liked more time at the Museum
If you've seen Abu Dhabi and have a spare day, you could do worse than take this trip. It's not one of the first things I have advised friends to do.
Nothing interesting, except for the original Sheikh's palace and the camel market. Archeological sites are very small and lacking information. Oasis - disappointing. Lunch break could be taken in a traditional Arabic restaurant, instead of the mall food court.
