Our guide was really friendly and knowledgeable and made sure that we really enjoyed our day. We traversed four emirates in a day so really got a sense of life for Emiratis outside of the big cities. The dunes, desert rocks and breakfast under a tree were real highlights. Hatta Heritage Village itself needs a bit of TLC and not ideal if you don't like plastic human figures! but had some interesting exhibits. Many thanks to Mustafa for being a fantastic guide and making sure we came away with some amazing pictures!
We did this trip about 18 months ago. However we still recall it as a very useful and memorable trip. A great chance to get out of Dubai and see the real culture of the Emirates.
We were more interested in the heritage than the dune bashing and decided on the Heritage Hatta Tour. The driver picked us up on time from the hotel in his luxury air conditioned car which is a must for the terrain and outside temperature. We were interested in knowing more about the culture and day to day activities and living conditions, but the driver was not forthcoming with much information at all. Still the journey through some very scenic country with a surreal mountainous area in the middle of the desert is worth the drive. Once at Hatta, a small town in the middle of nowhere which is having a beautiful transformation, it is short time to the Hatta Villiage. This small example of how village life used to be is having it's own maintenance upgrade which appears to be overdue. The tower which is the centre piece needs to be prioritized with directional signage and remedial repairs.If going to The Hatta Village you need at least 1 hour to explore. The Gift Shop work. Once completed we travel to the desert wher we have a simple but enjoyable lunch on a blanket on the sand under a tree. The driver does not join us and sit in the vehicle waiting for us to finish. Once lunch is over we travel up and down over dunes taking many photogaphs of the amazing landscape, then it's back on the highway and back to our hotel in 5 hours. It's a good trip to see the very scenic landscape outside of Dubai.
Trip started with the hatta tour. The place was serene and beautiful. The visit to the cultural village was educational. There was no mountain trail off road as depicted in the given picture.
None the less, the driver stopped at picturesque sites for photo-taking
The 2nd half was the trip to the desert. The dune bashing was rough but fun and thrilling. The driver was very skillful. Overall it was a pleasant trip.
Sights at Hatta are excellent and the red sand dunes ride is really exhilarating
This tour was not my 1st choice, but the Desert Morning Tour was already full by the time I booked. Our guide was very knowledgable and pleased to answer the many questions I had. Hatta is interesting but it is a long trip for a destination that is mildly historical. The 4x4 on the dunes was definitely the highlight of the trip - better than any Disneyland ride! The picture that represents the tour is a little misleading as you do not go four wheeling into river areas however the Hatta reservoir is remarkable. If you want a taste of the geography and culture of Dubai - outside of downtown - this tour does it.
Really enjoyed the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and very helpful.
Not sure lunch was that great or required - could have just had cool drinks and got back to Dubai earlier and not paid for a lunch, but maybe some people like the lunch option...!
I was luckily, the only one on my tour! It felt nice having a private guide for the day. We went to see Hatta Heritage Village which is a bit cheesy and touristy but it's free and you can see some cool stuff. Then afterwards, we went to the dam and got some nice mountain pictures and then you go see camel rock with soft dune bashing. Since it was just me, we tailored everything to what I wanted. We couldn't go see the lakes since that's in Oman and there's passport/security issues now. Lunch is very simple - a burger with just meat, apple, and small side of potato salad. It was tasty anyway. My guide was awesome and spoke English and we had a blast getting to know each other.
This was a really nice day out in the rugged mountains and lonely sand dunes. My guide, Jafar, did a great job four-wheeling over the dunes. He also did a nice job of explaining the sites at the Hatta Heritage Center. Really a fun trip!
