What people are saying about Al Ain

Great and exciting tour to Al Ain

The tour was a lot of fun and very informative. You immerse yourself in a completely different world. We were picked up punctually at the hotel by our guide and then four of us started the tour. Already during the approximately 2-hour drive you get a lot of information about UAE. When we arrived in Al Ain we first visited the museum, then the palace, the oases of Al Ain, afterwards we had an excellent lunch in a luxury hotel. Then we visited the cattle market and were allowed to marvel at camels in live. Small information for women, rather wear restrained clothing, the camel dealers are otherwise a bit irritated. Then we went to the mountain Jafal Hafeet with its unique view and finally to the really hot springs. Our guide Qasim was very friendly and helpful. Overall, I highly recommend the tour and would book it again at any time.

Picked up a little late. Excursion was something different and very interesting. We were completely alone with the guide and therefore very flexible. Time was good enough. Food was delicious. Please for women: dress a bit covered at the camel market

It was really a lovely excursion to Al Ain with the nice views on the desert Rub al Khali, and the beautifull Al Ain city, A special thank the driver Shanaka. I recommend this excursion. You won't be disapointed

very complete, very friendly guide, buffet meal of very good quality. schedule respected but with timed stops. French attention by the audioguide only.

Great and varied insight. Lots of information from the voice guide (several languages including German). On time with a good driver / guide.
