5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Thank you very much for an excellent and interesting tour. Shiju, our driver, picked us up at the hotel and was patiently waiting at all the dfferent locations. We met Gamini our guide in Sharjah and throughout the tour he thoroughly explained the history of Sharjah, pointed out daily life issues, answered questions about the Islam, the UAE and its people and presented interesting buildings, museums, mosques, the renovated fort of Sharjah, and monuments. Most interesting for me was the museum of civilizations as well as the highly recommended Heritage Museum. I found this museum even more interesting than the one in Dubai. At the end there was a good opportunity to stroll through the Al Arsa Souk as well as through the Al Markazi souk.
Well worth. All together a good opportunity to explore an area outside of Dubai where the majority of the working families live, Sharjah, that showcases many more interesting museums and an exiting history. Konrad Richter, New Zealand
