Know More about this tour

Leave Dubai with your private guide and travel north to Sharjah, the coastal city thats often known as the Pearl of the Gulf. As you travel, chat with your guide about the UNESCO-listed city, and about the things that you want to see. Your itinerary is flexible so if theres something you particularly want to see, simply let your guide know.

First stop is King Faisal Mosque, Sharjahs largest place of worship that was gifted to the city by the Saudi Arabian king. Stretch your legs on a stroll around the outside and pose for pictures in front of its towering minarets.

Continue to Al Hisn Sharjah, the citys historical fortress, and hear how the building was once lived in by Al Qasimi the citys ruling family. Stroll around inside and admire the traditional Emirati architecture and artifacts that date back some 200 years. Nearby is Sharjah Heritage Museum, so head here next to browse a fascinating array of exhibits that document the citys history.

After getting acquainted with the citys religious history and heritage, head to the souks to discover the importance of these lively markets in everyday Emirati life. Wander through Souq Al Arsah to browse stalls selling colorful pashminas and khanjars (daggers) alongside everyday herbs and spices, and hear stories of the Persian traders who hawked their wares at the souk almost 50 years ago.

Travel on to Souq Al Markazi where stalls brandishing gold and diamond jewelry are sandwiched between silk carpet shops. Enjoy some free time to explore the stalls and shop for souvenirs, and then start your journey back to Dubai. Your tour finishes with a drop-off at your Dubai hotel.

    We had a tour to Sharjah Emirate today. We saw great sights. The organization was really good. Especially through Nimesh, our tour guide, we learned a lot about the Emirate and people. We were also very well explained to life and culture and all questions could be answered super. We can recommend the tour to all those who want to see not only Dubai and also have interest in culture and history. Thank you again to Nimesh and his nice companion for the beautiful day!

    Die Tour war super aufgrund unseres Reiseleiters Nimesh, der alles super erzählt hat und sich viel Zeit genommen hat. Wir würden jederzeit wieder eine Tour mit ihm machen.

    Fizemos o tour de meio dia partindo de Dubai com destino a Sharjah. Quem nos acompanhou foi o guia Mehul Bulsara que foi super simpático e solícito. O tour como um todo nos surpreendeu positivamente. Por ser apenas 4:30h de passeio, pensamos que não conheceríamos muito, mas pelo contrário, fomos a museus, mercados e ficamos sabendo de bastante coisa sobre a história e cultura local. Recomendamos a qualquer pessoa que tenha mais dias de viagem em Dubai.

    Since having problems with previous two tours in Dubai, we were given a different driver for this one. He was excellent and the tour was very interesting. He took us to the museum which was great and other places of interest. Plenty of photo stops. He didn't rush us and it was a very enjoyable morning. We were told by our previous day's guide that there was nothing to see in Sharjah. There was plenty. Would recommend this tour.
