Loved our guide - very informative. We saw other things than skyscrapers. Lunch was very nice. He was very flexible with our shopping time. And, also actually took us to the gold souk when we returned to Dubai. I would highly recommend this trip.
we had the best tour guide ever! He was so knowledgeable about everything and we enjoyed our adventure so much.
This was a private tour of the East Coast of Dubai. The guide and the driver were both courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. The tour entailed a drive through the city of Sharjah and then a visit to the Friday Market at Masafi. Here we saw various handicrafts on sale and savored some fresh oranges and coconut water. The mountainous terrain of Fujairah was beautiful, as also were the large number of oases, both man-made and natural, that fell on the way. All types of scenery, mountains, deep valleys, sea, oases, fell on the way and I was able to capture some of it on celluloid. At Dibba, the sight of the sea near the Fish Market, with large number of lovely boats and ships anchored, was breathtaking. I regretted having purchased dates from Dubai, as fresh dates of very good quality were available in the shop here as well as in the Friday Market. We also had a good look at the historic Baidiyah Mosque and the Fujairah Fort bounded by the sea and excavations of ancient sites. We had delicious Lebanese food at a small restaurant in Khor Fakkan offering beautiful views of the sea and of palm trees. On way back, the guide showed me the large cylindrical tanks at Fujairah where oil delivered through underground pipes from Abu Dhabi is stored for supply not only to UAE but also to foreign lands like Japan. It was altogether a most enjoyable and memorable trip.
