Visit the beautiful garden city of Al Ain, the greenest of all the Emirates, on a full-day tour from Dubai. Begin with a visit to the Al Ain Museum with its extensive archaeological collection, including some spectacular second-millennium gold pendants.

Not quite the standard I was expecting.

The guide, though very friendly and polite, did little to enhance the overall success of the tour. At each of the attraction we were just dumped and left to find our own way with no advice on special places or items of particular interest. With limited time at ones disposal some guidance would have very helpful. The lunch was a great disappointment. It turned out to be not the buffet lunch as advertised but an inferior offering in a totally deserted poolside cafe. No apologies either!

Nice green city but 1 and half our near the desert road was horrible

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

Relaxing tour

We were picked up at our hotel by our guide Zaki. We were the only guests on this tour, and Zaki made it a very enjoyable day. The atmosphere was friendly, everything was well Organizer, and Zaki gave us much detailed information. The lunch buffet at Hilton hotel was really exzellent. I have done a lot of travelling and this tour belongs to the best ones I joined. I can recommend this tour and in particular our friendly guide Zaki.
