The half day trip to Sharjah was fantastic! Our driver, Mahir, picked us up on time from our hotel in downtown Dubai. We were given ample time, between 30 minutes to hour, to visit each of the highlighted stops in Sharjah. Our first stop was the immense and beautiful King Faisal mosque. The highlight of the trip was without a doubt the Heritage museum, which holds truly remarkable exhibits of the ancient Islamic world including the history, science, technology, commerce, and “Silk Road” trade from Islamic antiquity. One of our last stops was Al Arsa souk where we found numerous shops selling heavily discounted gold (bargaining is a must). We even had time to relax at one of the souk’s cafés to enjoy delicious karak tea (try it once)!! This excursion is definitely worth doing and provides a unique perspective of an entirely different emirate (Sharjah being one of 7 distinct Emirates) in contrast to the bustling and touristy areas of old/new Dubai and Jumeirah.
They came to pick us from the hotel, transfer us to our tour bus (the timeing hasn't been the best). After departing from Burj al Arab we had the best guide, both in english and german. From there we had a nice tour. Drop-off at the hotel was included as well. Good value for money.
The tour was amazing and our tour guide gave us plenty of time for looking around and taking pictures. Our tour guide narsha was wonderful and very lovely.
Driver was within time given. Nice staff on boat. Good food. Nice boat ride. They provided blankets. Music was ok. Nice ride overall!
Our last even8ng in Dubai after a long cruise. It was a wonderful way to finish our holiday.
