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

Excellent value. Our private guide Gabor was fantastic-he was extremely interesting and informative and very entertaining throughout. He took us to many interesting venues- especially the museums. Sharjah was a great place to visit even during Ramadan-it was far more relaxed than we expected as long as you observe a sensible dresscode. The locals were very friendly. We would definitely like to stay so we could see it in more depth and as an alternative to Dubai.

Excellent, informative tour with a guide who really knew what he was talking about. I've lived in the UAE for several years and this has been the best tour so far. The guide has lived in Sharjah for many years and we found him really interesting to listen to. Would highly recommend tour.

As there was only 4 of us on this tour we got VIP treatment. Our guide was very passionate about his job , gave us lots of interesting information and offered to take photos for us which was nice to be able to have both my husband and myself in the photos.

Quite different than Dubai. Enjoyed the half-day trip there, wished we could have stayed longer. The heritage museum was worth the visit. The guide was also very good.

Tour covered quite a lot, photo opportunities, museums, Heritage village and markets. I could have missed out the last stop at the market, mostly jewellery and carpets, but the rest of it was good for the 4 hour trip.

Nice place, if it's a day trip that would be perfect.
I loved those heritage tours!
Thanked tour guide Stephen to whom I met twice during 6 days in Dubai. Also the driver sent us very early from Dubai to Sharjah. Viator network travel agents are well qualified, assist in my tours bookings always.

This tour was well organised and the pickup was prompt. The guide was knowledgeable and helped with purchases in the souk. The only negative was arriving at the Burj al Arab when the sun was directly behind it - not good for viewing or photography.
