Start your experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Meet your guide, settle into your private air-conditioned vehicle, and set out on your day trip to Al-Ain, often known as the Garden City.

As you travel, hear about the history of this picturesque town from your guide. One of the oldest towns in the UAE, Al-Ain lies at the foot of the Hajar Mountains and is known for its lush gardens and tree-lined boulevards. While you chat with your guide, let them know if there’s anything you want to see more of. Your tour is private, so the itinerary can tailored to suit you.

After roughly 1.5 hours on the road, drink in the sight of the craggy mountain peaks, and pass Al-Ain’s green parks on route to your first stop — the Sheik Zayed Palace Museum. The former home of the UAE’s late first president, His Highness Sheikh Zayed, this museum gives you an absorbing insight into the still-revered ruler. Step inside to view the beautiful interiors, artworks, meeting rooms and gardens, and learn more about the great man and his life.

Get a taste of old-time Arabia on a stroll around the enclosures of Al-Ain’s camel market. See the braying camels and take in the fascinating sight of the hawkers’ as they negotiate over their valuable animals.

Enjoy a break for lunch in town (own expense), and visit the hot springs below Jebel Hafeet, the mountain that towers over the city. Perhaps paddle in the waters, and then start your drive back to Dubai.

This is an expensive tour and the camel market and the oasis were the highlights. We would have preferred more time at the markets in fact. Could have passed on the archeological site that wasn't.

En fantastisk tur og oplevelse. Vi havde vore helt egen chauffør, som kørte meget professionelt og vores helt egen private guide som informerede og underholdte vores lille familie på fire personer en hel dag. Vi så alt det vi havde drømt om af ørken, daddelpalmer, historiske monumenter og ikke mindst kameler. Alt i alt en oplevelse, som kan anbefales. Det er dyrt, men vil man opleve noget af det originale fra Emiraterne, samt lære lidt undervejs er det alle pengene værd.
