This was a truly amazing day out! The comms from the driver, the company beforehand and on the day are fantastic. Shakil the driver who did the tour was simply brilliant. He arrived on time and drove to Fujairah. He was so knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. He was an incredible guide around the mosque (which was breathtaking, I was the ONLY person there!!) the nearly fort, the museum, the waterfall at Khorfakkan, the dam and the resistance monument etc. It’s a brilliant day out and you get to see so much of the real UAE. We stopped for lunch at a brilliant local restaurant. Shakil again was amazing at explaining the food and culture and the food was delicious. I’d 110% recommend this tour - it’s absolutely fantastic.

This was a great tour. Shakil (not O’Neal) was an amazing tour guide. He was so knowledgeable about each and every place he took me to and even places along the way. He answered many of my questions that I had been seeking answers to. We had local food in the traditional fashion. Having been here for 6 months, it was great to see something new. The mountains are breathtaking. I was lucky to be the only one on my tour so it made the experience that much better. There was so much to see that I wouldn’t have been able to had I tried to visit these places via metro. I love learning about other cultures. Thanks again Shakil!

Very nice day spent with Noor and our driver. His perfect knowledge of the region, of the various buildings enriched our day. His advice for lunch was very good, we enjoyed it. I really recommend this extraordinary excursion. We go from the exuberance of Dubai to the desert and mountainous landscapes of Fujairah. A real change of scenery.

I needed to get away from busy dubai and it chose to visit the Fujairah/khokofan area. it was absolutely amazing experience, the landscape is completely different the mountains are very unique and you feel you are visiting another country. our guide Shakil was amazing and kept us informed about the history of each area we visited.

Overall great experience! The mosque is beautiful and worth the trip. A special thanks to our guide Noor that always helped us suggesting good places (to eat, visit…).
