Full description
This 5-hour city tour of Ras al Khaimah is priced for a group of up to 6 persons and includes a drive to Al Marjan, a manmade island set against the picturesque backdrop of the Arabian Peninsula and enclosed by the Yanis and Jais mountains. Marvel at this truly luxurious destination. Drive to Al Hamra village, a former fishing community, and stop to see Al Dhayah Fort, one of of the oldest sites in the Emirates. Admire the views of the mountains and sea from this point. This strategic military fortification played a major role in the history of the UAE. Built in 16th century, it is the only castle standing atop a mountainous dune in the UAE, and was the last area to fall into British hands in their long war against the Al Qawasim tribe. Continue on to visit the Mohammad Bin Salem Mosque and National Museum. The museum is housed in a fort that was the residence of the ruling family until the early 1960s. Lastly, you'll pass through the fish market area, stopping to explore the Old Souk, where you can find everything from ancient handicrafts to household items.

Would this tour book again and again would be absolutely thrilled! Osmaan was our guide we couldn't have got a better guide !! He went to great lengths to be able to see everything from Ras al khaimah the information was exactly right, not too much and not too little :) when booking this tour you can't go wrong at all !! Osmaan spoke very good and slow English, so that someone who doesn't understand English very well will understand almost everything.

Top excursion - we were thrilled!

That was a sightseeing tour to our taste. There were only two of us in the chic car and our guide went out of his way to make sure we did it. He spoke excellent English and we had a very good conversation and we learned a lot about the city. We could stop at any time and just see from the car! At almost 40 degrees, this is very pleasant in a climate-sensitive car. We were able to express wishes and had a lot of fun during the day. Thumbs up the tour was worth every penny !!!

Excellent tour and informative guide

Highly recommend this tour if you want to see a little of the country,away from the hotel, that is Ras Al Khaimah. We went to the Dhayah fort, a steep climb but worth the effort for some fantastic views. Also, the abandoned fishing village,a mall and some lovely costal areas, which remain original and unspoilt from the reclamation going on in the main tourist areas.
