Escape do barulho e da agitação de Dubai para descobrir antiga fortalezas, vilas de pescadores, montanhas escarpadas e oásis no deserto da cativante costa leste dos Emirados Árabes. Viajando em um ônibus com ar condicionado pelas montanhas Hajar, visite as cidades de Al Dhaid e Dibba Al-Hisn, o recém-restaurado Forte Fujairah e a Mesquita Al Badiyah, a mais antiga dos EAU. Dê um mergulho no Golfo de Omã, pare no Forte Al Bithnah e vasculhe os artigos árabes autênticos no Mercado Masafi.
Once again another journey well worth it. When you are in Dubai all you get is shopping centres and skyscrapers. On this trip you get to see a bit of the desert, the Hatta mountain range and various old buildings. This is how life was before oil was discovered. The guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. Answered all questions quickly and clearly. Only downside was we visited an antiques shop, this could have been any shop in Dubai selling the same stuff, did not see the reason for the visit. :
Pick up on time from Dubai to Sharjah where tour commenced, about 30 min. Trip big day but worth doing. Saw enough to give idea of the country. Guide professional and informative. Day bigger than usual due to bad weather, rainstorm alternating sandstorm on way back. Driver competent and felt safe.
If you want to see a bit of the other emirates other than Dubai and Abu Dhabi I would suggest taking this tour. Its a lot more relaxed than some other tours and the guide is quite funny. We visited the Friday Market on a Tuesday, went to a fish market, visited a craft shop, the mosque and fortress as described and saw some of the other side of emirate life. The hotel lunch was not cheap but was a buffet and very tasty and Sandy Beaches is gorgeous to see. Enjoyed it and would recommend it, its a bit rough round the edges but worth a try.
the tour was ok, but the coach was too cramped. I sat at the most rear of the coach and was hardly able to move. the overall experience was great, we were able to visit several historical places and the sandy beach resort. I would suggest the company to change their vehicle according to the number of the guests to ensure that every one of us could have a memorable trip.
