Great day trip to the hinterland of the UAE!

At over 40 degrees, usually few people come up with the idea to book a tour in the hinterland, so we were the only three of them and had the luck to catch a German-speaking travel guide. In the already family trip you can ask questions about all things and get exhaustive answers. You can see a lot of the landscape that you normally do not get to know (sand dunes, mountains, mangrove swamp). The outdoor museum in Hatta and the sultan's house in Kalba are the historical highlights to better understand the country and the people. For lunch, the guide had taken us to an Indian restaurant in Fujeirah that would never be a tourist, but we were simply overwhelmed by the taste and huge portions (and that at half the price of twice the amount of a mall). Food Court). Definitely recommended for those who want to get out of the malls in Dubei.

It was a perfect tour for us, because everything is included breakfast, desert tour, camel farm, sand boarding and a trip through the country to see the other side with Very interesting impressions and beautiful stunning views. Thanks for the perfect tour. Very friendly guide ☺️ highly recommended

We had a very nice, exciting and informative day with our local guide, who spoke excellent German! He not only showed us the sights, but also brought us closer to his country! The UAE has much more to offer than luxury hotels and shopping malls!

That was a fantastic tour. Javid is a very professional and safe driver. We talked a lot and through him I learned a lot about the emirate and the culture. Thanks a lot for this. I will book the tour again on my next visit to Dubai.

You should definitely look at it

The tour was almost a private tour of only 7 people. Nevertheless, it was a great organization! Punctual hotel pickup. On this tour you drive out of the city and get to know the other Dubai. I think you have to do it!
