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.
It took a while to get going, think it did not start till mid afternoon once all had been picked up from various hotels. It was not perfect listening to the commentary in both German and English, would have preferred an English audio. May have been better to stop at Al Fahidi rather than the Gold Souk, a more interesting area. However trip on the abra boat was good, and visits to the Dubai Museum and other stops also good.
I have been living in the UAE for 2 years now & this is by far the best experience we have had yet. We had the most amazing day from start to finish I honestly could not fault a single thing! This package is great value for money considering all that’s included. If you’re looking for the best desert safari in the UAE then this is it... an amazing day is guaranteed!! 10/10
Just awesome! We really enjoyed this trip. We were with two kids (4 and 9 years) - no problem, they love every part of it. Dunes ride, camel ride, henna tattoo, dinner, show, squads... Our driver was so great, very smart man called Imram. Highly recommended. Desert is just beautiful...
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.
