Full description
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.

Not quite the standard I was expecting.

The guide, though very friendly and polite, did little to enhance the overall success of the tour. At each of the attraction we were just dumped and left to find our own way with no advice on special places or items of particular interest. With limited time at ones disposal some guidance would have very helpful. The lunch was a great disappointment. It turned out to be not the buffet lunch as advertised but an inferior offering in a totally deserted poolside cafe. No apologies either!

Nice trip for everyone who wants to get out of Dubai

We were lucky enough to be the only three travelers for this excursion in July. A visit to the mountain is worthwhile because of the view, the oasis with the springs is not absolutely necessary in summer. The food at the Hilton was very good and certainly made up the largest part of the price of the trip. Fort with museum (interesting old photos from the beginnings before the founding of the UAE) and zoo are also very worth seeing. All in all, the trip was worth it, could be a little cheaper.

Nice green city but 1 and half our near the desert road was horrible

Starting time on paper 8am, phone indicated 8:30, real 9am. The guide was also the driver. After a half an hour drive a brake fluid problem on the road between Dubai and Al Ain. Waiting the new car in the small shadow of a bush in the desert near the road, horribly hot. The new driver asked: how are you? Without official apologize by the Funturs Dubai Company. 1st stop at noon. After that there were interesting places but only 5-10 minutes photo breaks. Hurry and rush to fulfill the indicated program. We have only 40 minutes for the lunch in Hilton as a most expensive element of this tour, so without enough time. After this hurrying the guide smoked 10 minutes. At the Camel Market they did not mentionned before the agressive behaviour of guys for money asking pictures with camels. The guy asked 100AED (gave 20). It was the deficiency of our Indian guide. The way back the guide slept and handed over the steering wheel to his inexperienced learner collegue, fear of death on the road
