This was an excellent chance to visit several places in the eastern United Arab Emirates and a beach resort on the Gulf of Oman
It was a wonderfull trip, the lady who guided the tour is very knowledgeble. The hotel stopped for luch, it took too long to serve the food. It is worth to take this tour.

A good way to get a contrast of the mountains and the desert. A good day out.
Good trip but did overlap somewhat with the Hatta Springs i.e. Friday market and some of the initial photo stops the same. Still good value and extremely knowledgeable guide - friendly and approachable
It was a really nice trip. we even managed to swim in the Indian Ocean!

Tour was excellent. Sarah our tour guide was very knowledgeble and explained everything to us. She had a great sense of humor as well. I highly recommend this tour if you want to see and learn more about the U.A.E.

If you have time, get out of Dubai and see the life outside of the city. Mountains, oasis, oldest mosque in UAE, walk on the beach. Driver guide was very professional and nice.

Good day out. Guide Anette was very knowledgeable, clear and precise. It is probably only suitable for adults - not a family outing - I think kids may be rather bored.

An excellent trip to see more than just Dubai but some of the UAE Emirates and a bit of Oman too. Although the Omni's have now put a boarder post in so you can no longer cross the border. You get picked up by car at your hotel and are taken to where the bus starts.There were eight of us on the mini bus and the guide was excellent. The only part of this trip which I considered a total waste of time was the visit to the 'Friday Market.' Remember to take your swimming gear for the lunch stop at a resort on the Indian Ocean, superb trip.

A great trip, but we were disappointed we could not cross into Oman.
With the excellent driver/guide on this trip to inform you, you learn a lot!

Like it. Much different from Dubai, you can see the difference between rich and poor emirates. I loved the beach that we stopped at to have lunch.
I had confidence after I checked what others had to say, before I went on the trip. True to what was said, I too had a Very Good Trip. Its best to go during winter ie. from November to Feb as summer might be too hot. I got full worth for my money. Thanks Viator.

Tour covered a variety of scenery. Lunch at beach hotel was fine, but staff could have been advised of our arrival, so service could have been quicker during the stopover. Really appreciated hotel pickup and drop off. It was good value for money by comparison.

Very interesting tour despite the 42 degrees of heat, gained more information about UAE. We didn't travel/visit according to the description but saw most of the places listed. Suggest tour operators should give more details about lunch set up - it was either a big hotel or small cafe. As there was only 4 four us, it was easy to decide. Could be difficult and time wasting if there was a large group. It was very hot at the beach but definitely worth a paddle.

This is worthwhile in its giving you the chance to explore the contrasting countryside outside outside Dubai. Value was added through a very knowledgeable guide.

This was a very interesting trip just to see what's the around the area instead of only Dubai. The mountains are huge and not too bad for a 10-minute ride through Oman. All in, a nice drive outside of the city for the day.

To get out of the city and see the desert, the mountains, different Emirates and rain was good. Tour leader was informative, friendly and very interesting. English was excellent.
a lot of stops are little more than a photo opp. Great to get out of Dubai for another aspect of the AEU. Lunch stop at the beach was the best bit - safe quiet private beach at a resort with towels available to borrow. Just over an hour there so if you love the beach don't waste time ordering lunch at the café - goo food but slow - take your own snacks or buy fruit along the way and just go straight to the beach. Friday markets everyday tho! very disappointing. It is really just a strip of carpet sellers and fruit sellers and we had twenty minutes to wander from one end to the other. The mosque/fort/mountains were all great
Instructor was good, explained a lot of interesting things and worth visiting to see how other cities are compared to Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Very nice tour, but I think a bottle of water should have been Provided
