The tour operator has arranged for hotel pickup and drop kindly call the tour operator 2 days before the tour to inform your UAE mobile number and hotel details English speaking guide. The whole Sharjah tour was awesome. I really enjoyed the tour eventhough it was just a 4 hour tour short. So I request everyone to combine Dubai city tour and Sharjah city tour into one day and inform the tour operators in advance.

5 hour tour. Picked us up at our hotel in Dubai. A 20 mt. ride to neighboring Sharjah City. Apparantly many people live in Shajah and commute to Dubai daily as it tis cheaper to live here. The best part of our tour was visiting the Islamic museum, King Faizal mosque, Sharjah heritage center and last but not least visit to the 2 markets where you could get all kinds of thiings to buy. This Emirate has a tranquil quality and few beaches. Though we did not see too many people in the beach were told that they'll arrive later in the evening when it is cooler. Sharjah is called the pearl of the gulf for the right . This trip in my opinion was well worth, inexpensive and wouldn't miss it.

Really enjoyable afternoon! The best part of this tour is the Islamic Museum, which is beautiful and well organized. Sharjah is an active city, but much calmer than Dubai. Would recommend just for the trip to the museum.

It was great! The guide is very nice. You get to know all the important places of the city, and they let you have all the time you need to take your pictures with no rush.

Sharjah is full of Islamic cultural tradition. Good trip to the blue souq. Recommended for the tour to be a full day instead of half day.

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.
