    Excellent tour-pick up from hotel on time guide was informative

    Great pick up service. The drive through the desert to Al Ain was fascinating with interesting commentary from the tour guide throughout the drive. Visiting the mountains bordering Oman to see the oasis was breathtaking, date farm was interesting with ability to buy great dates.
    Overall a great tour with only a few minor issues. Maybe too many sites to visit in one day making it a very long day, people attending the tour should be considerate of others and return to the bus at expected time rather than make people wait
    The camel market could be missed as its expensive not an extra cost and yields little

    I enjoyed this trip but disappointed that we did not go up the mountain. We only stopped shortly by the hot spring within the park on the bottom of the mountain. I got this mainly because I thought we would go up the mountain.

    Besides that I enjoyed the tour.

    Very interesting and exotic trip in Al Ain with many well organized tours . The guide was very knowledgeable and efficient. Thank you to him and his team. A beautiful day and a lot of memories.

    This was a very good tour that got us outside Dubai. We had a most enjoyable time seeing a garden city in the desert. The visit to the camel market and seeing racing camels was most enjoyable as was the visit to the mountain hot springs. A good lunch too. One complaint. We had to be transferred some distance to meet up with the main bus and needed to pick up other travellers on the way. The problem is that there was restricted room in the back of the transfer vehicle - very uncomfortable for someone like me withy two titanium knees. .. !!! Other than this, a good day out to a more traditional desert town...
