Our tour was outstanding in every way. Our guide picked us up at our hotel. There were only 4 of us which allowed our guide to create the perfect tour. His knowledge of history and the most important areas to see was amazing. He even took the time to take us out into the beautiful desert and to see the camels being trained to race. I totally encourage anyone with an interest in touring this beautiful and fascinating place to book this tour.
This is a great tour because it's outside of the cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai....It seemed, in a sense, to be a more authentic experience because of the emphasis on the natural landscape - from the Oasis, to the dunes, to the climb up the mountain. You get a sense of how royalty lived pre-oil, or shortly after the discovery of oil with the visit to Sheikh Zayed's former home before he became president. And, if you have kids - they'll like it. I went alone with my kids who are 5 and 8.
This trip to a town very different from bustling Abu Dhabi is a must-do for anyone interested in having a look into the past of the country and into real Emirates. The tour reflects 100 listed in the programme, and the guide Tomy was very professional and informative, besides being fluent both in English and German. In the old palace of Al Ain can feel the flavour of a past gone forever, while the ethnographic section of the national museum is of great interest. The camel market is simply exciting, and the view from Jebel Hafeet is wonderful. The lunch provided plenty of delicious food. Maybe we would have loved to spend some more time at some location, but there are really lots of sightseeing in the programme, and we would also not have lost any of them. I take this opportunity to commend the driver of our bus who, after having dropped us at the hotel, at 10 pm drove back good 20 km to bring me back my mobile phone that I had inadvertently left in the bus: thank you once more, our kindness and honesty reflect great credit upon you and your agency, who was very helpful in getting me in touch with you. An highly recommended excursion!
Nizar transported 3 of us in a safe, timely, friendly, and informative manner to the sights, each better than the last. Be aware that the map and signage at the Oasis are not very explicit, the route is not straight like shown- get name and number of gate. The mountain drive is jaw dropping and the green bbq park gave me the oportunity to interact with an amazing family that offered to share their food after I complimented them on the aroma. And there is nothing more fun than interacting with hundreds of curious camels. Go.
I had one day in Abu Dhabi to spare so signed up for this tour. Breathtaking fantastic day away from the main city. Small coach, only half full so not overcrowded, which was great. Saw a bit of the desert, the camels which were ever so cuddly, the fort and museum. Definitely a day for those wanting more culture rather than just mickey mouse style glam and glitz. Tour company was very organised and professional, kept me updated re pick up times and location and also answered my email queries very quickly within a few hours. Definitely recommend this one for anyone with a day to spare who is interested in the more traditional cultural side of the Emirates. I will be using this tour operator for more trips when I return in the future.
Great trip. Great guide who went the extra mile and who provided excellent commentary.
My first visit to Al Ain. Worth the trip guide was outstanding and very knowledgeable. There is a need to remind oneself that while the culture is old, permanent structures are younger than many would expect.
This is a must do ,full day out brilliant guide ,lovely buffet lunch .stops for tea or coffee on way and back ,mountain views incredible
Fantastic tour with a fantastic tour guide, really interesting and great to be shown around beautiful Al-Ain with someone so enthusiastic
This is a fantastic tour. Our driver and guide Mr K.Gafoor was excellent.
