Know More about this tour


Hop aboard your comfortable 4x4 in front of your central Dubai hotel in the morning. Settle into the air-conditioned interior and with your driver-guide at the wheel, set off on your journey through the UAES stark desert landscapes. Head toward the UAE-Oman border and Hatta, an old trading settlement with a historical fort and rock pools, nestled high in the craggy Hajar Mountains. Watch as the terrain shifts from open plains to dunes and rocky mountain slopes, and after roughly two hours on the road, arrive at Hatta Heritage Village. A recreation of an old mountain hamlet dating back to before the 20th century, the complex comprises dwellings and buildings built from mud, palm leaves, reeds, and stone. Head inside with your guide to stroll around the houses, mosques, and watchtowers and see the displays of weaponry, handicrafts, and traditional dress that showcase what life was like here until the mid-1900s. See Hatta Fort as you learn more about the regions history, and then climb back inside your 4x4 to venture deeper into the desert. Continue to Jebel Maleihah, otherwise known as Fossil Rock. This large rocky outcrop rears sharply from the sands and gets its nickname from the many ancient marine fossils embedded in its slopes. Hop out to look for these swirling, aeons-old fossils imprints of shells and tiny marine creatures that lived on the ocean floor when the Arabian Peninsula was covered by the sea millions of years ago. Then, make your way to nearby Camel Rock. Take snaps of the desert rock formation that resembles a camel, and then return to Dubai where your day trip ends at your hotel.

    Our guide was great and everything well Organizer. It was a funny trip in the dessert without any stressful safari riding. Everything calm. Bee‘s , Dam and Hatta hills gave us a wider view of Dubai.

    Very nice trip! The driver was very kind, helpful, polite and very informative (he told us about the desert, animals, arab culture, Hatta mountain, etc) I can easily claim that it was his absolute priority to do everything it takes for us to enjoy this trip. First we drove from Dubai to the desert and then continue our trip to the Bee garden (very interesting visit and their selection of authentic honey is amazing - we bought three jars of delicious honey!) and Hatta mountain. The scenery was beautiful (see the pictures), weather was amazing and breakfast very tasty! Definitely recommend!

    Die Tour ist zu empfehlen. Ein kleine Wüstenerfahrung mit Besuch von Hatta und seinen Hotspots. Unser Fahrer war sehr freundlich, aufmerksam und pünklich. Es gab viele Infos über Land und Leute. Vielen Dank!

    Musthafa was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable on the sites and surroundings. He was entertaining and helpful at all times. Could not fault his service The trip was interesting but had more driving that anticipated, we stayed in dubai and it was almost 4 hours of driving in a half day session and the heritage site was shut due to construction work. Would recommend but check the driving distance to hatta from your start location and ensure everything is open along the way!

    It is a little hard to grade this trip as I will explain later. We had an excellent guide and were kept well informed about pick up. The trip across the desert was interesting and our guide pointed out various interesting plants. We felt no need for 'sand bashing' and asked him to drive slowly so we could see and experience the early morning desert, he was happy to do as we asked though it was a pretty bumpy ride anyway! Breakfast was good, a lovely spot, clean and litter free. We were able to watch birds and see some desert plants. We then went on to the bee farm. It seems a bit of an odd option and we felt it might be just a 'filler' to break the trip to Hatta. It was actually very interesting with a very professional and in depth tour, followed, of course, by the opportunity to buy. We did shop as it seemed a worthwhile enterprise. A quick stop at the Hatta dam and then on to Hatta Heritage village which is where the problems arose. While we were admitted, everything was locked up and apart from wandering round the outside there was nothing to see, all the exhibits and rooms were padlocked, all we could see were courtyards. Our guide was surprised and was told on asking that there was a staff shortage, he was very apologetic. As this was a significant part of the tour we asked for a partial refund but Orient Tours refused. The small print says that they reserve the right to cancel parts of the tour but they did not do this and insisted that the village was open. I suppose if being allowed through the entrance counts as open then they are technically correct but even when we sent pictures of padlocked doors they insisted that the village was open. In the end Viator stepped in and kindly offered a partial refund for the missed part of the tour. So in conclusion, this is a good tour, especially if you actually get to see Hatta heritage Village properly, the guide was excellent but we cannot recommend Orient Tours, so maybe look for a different company offering this.

    Sehr schöne Tour nach Hatta (inkl. Heritage Village, Hatta Dam und Honey Bee Garden). Vorher ging es noch in die Wüste und zum Camel Rock, wo wir auch Sandboarding ausprobieren konnten. Die Tour ist sehr zu empfehlen, um auch das Umland besser kennen zu lernen und dem Trubel der Stadt zu entfliehen. Unser Reiseführer Javed war super: er war sehr hilfsbereit und hat uns sehr viele Informationen gegeben. Am Vorabend wurde uns per Whatsapp die genaue Abholzeit mitgeteilt und entsprechend pünktlich war er dann auch da. Gut fanden wir auch die Picknickbox sowie das kostenfreie Wasser.

    The Hatta tour was very good, and the driver/guide was very friendly and informative. Unfortunately the dam was closed for maintenance, As an alternative we visited a camel farm, which was very jnteresting. Loved the driving through real desert with breakfast which was a fantastic experience, and would have liked to have seen more even more desert. Overall a really good excursion to experience other areas and scenery of Dubai.

    Wonderful trip led by Sahib. My friend and I were made to feel very safe with his expert driving. Nothing was too much trouble. He went above and beyond what was expected.
