Starting time on paper 8am, phone indicated 8:30, real 9am. The guide was also the driver. After a half an hour drive a brake fluid problem on the road between Dubai and Al Ain. Waiting the new car in the small shadow of a bush in the desert near the road, horribly hot. The new driver asked: how are you? Without official apologize by the Funturs Dubai Company. 1st stop at noon. After that there were interesting places but only 5-10 minutes photo breaks. Hurry and rush to fulfill the indicated program. We have only 40 minutes for the lunch in Hilton as a most expensive element of this tour, so without enough time. After this hurrying the guide smoked 10 minutes. At the Camel Market they did not mentionned before the agressive behaviour of guys for money asking pictures with camels. The guy asked 100AED (gave 20). It was the deficiency of our Indian guide. The way back the guide slept and handed over the steering wheel to his inexperienced learner collegue, fear of death on the road
