We were picked up a little late, but were lucky enough to drive in a small bus to 5. At most sights we had enough time to look at something, take photos, etc. From time to time there were a few more minutes because of the small group. The oasis didn't have as much water anymore, so the short period of time was enough. Otherwise you would need a little more time for the area. It was enough to sniff. The lunch was delicious and everyone found something at the buffet. We were really happy. Our guide was very friendly, helpful and also explained something. The more covered clothing actually applies to women on the camel market. Despite my long clothes, I was very noticeable. Otherwise it is very interesting to have seen this too.

Great and exciting tour to Al Ain

The tour was a lot of fun and very informative. You immerse yourself in a completely different world. We were picked up punctually at the hotel by our guide and then four of us started the tour. Already during the approximately 2-hour drive you get a lot of information about UAE. When we arrived in Al Ain we first visited the museum, then the palace, the oases of Al Ain, afterwards we had an excellent lunch in a luxury hotel. Then we visited the cattle market and were allowed to marvel at camels in live. Small information for women, rather wear restrained clothing, the camel dealers are otherwise a bit irritated. Then we went to the mountain Jafal Hafeet with its unique view and finally to the really hot springs. Our guide Qasim was very friendly and helpful. Overall, I highly recommend the tour and would book it again at any time.

Something to see, time tight

The pickup took place in the hotel in Abu Dhabi. No other guests had booked the tour that day, so there were only two of us with the driver. He was very friendly, attentive throughout the day and also gave us a lot of information. His english very understandable for us. During the approx. 90 min journey you can listen to information about the area and Al Ain via the earrings that were previously issued. Visited: Al Jahili Fort, Palace Museum, oasis, camel market, Jebel Hafeet & the hot springs. Don't expect too much from the hot springs. There are some pipes out of which warm / hot water keeps running / dripping. But it is enough for a short foot bath. The length of stay is generally limited to 15-30 minutes per location. Since there were only two of us, we were lucky enough to be able to influence the times a little and to take our time a little longer. Lunch at the buffet (including soft drinks) was excellent.
