See a true series of oases and take a visit to the Al Ain National Museum and Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum, as well as a trip to the camel race track and the livestock market where you can watch real-life bargaining, an important part of the culture.  Following this, head to Jebel Hafeet, the great mountain and its remarkable location that overlooks the beauty of Al Ain city. Also, visit the Hot Springs situated at the foot of the mountain and discover the healing water which is found abundantly in this area. Then, enjoy lunch in a hotel before heading back to Abu Dhabi.

Visit the beautiful garden city of Al Ain, the greenest of all the Emirates, on a full-day tour from Dubai. Begin with a visit to the Al Ain Museum with its extensive archaeological collection, including some spectacular second-millennium gold pendants. It also houses a reconstruction of the Grand Hili tomb with its rock engravings.  Next, go to the top of Jebel Hafeet, UAE's highest peak, giving you stunning views of the desert. At the foot of Jebel Hafeet are hot water springs, ideal for bathing tired feet in steaming therapeutic waters. Then stop at the largest camel market in the UAE, recently renovated to entertain guests all the more. Depending on the time of year, you may see baby camels. Move on to Al Ain Conservation Zoo, which houses some the world's last remaining white lions and tigers. You will have the chance to get up close to the animals while strolling through the wonderful gardens and enclosures.

It was really a lovely excursion to Al Ain with the nice views on the desert Rub al Khali, and the beautifull Al Ain city, A special thank the driver Shanaka. I recommend this excursion. You won't be disapointed

very complete, very friendly guide, buffet meal of very good quality. schedule respected but with timed stops. French attention by the audioguide only.

Great and varied insight. Lots of information from the voice guide (several languages including German). On time with a good driver / guide.

It was very interesting and very varied. You can see a lot in a short time. The oasis was the only one not that interesting.

The tour is well worth seeing, all points were approached, enough time for everything, I can recommend it
