From Abu Dhabi: Al Ain Full Day Tour with Lunch
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 8 hours
Visit Al Ain, the traditional seat of the Sheikhs and perhaps the most traditional of the main cities in the UAE where desert life is best demonstrated. 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.
Super journée, visites très intéressantes, excellent rapport qualité prix. Tout s’est très bien déroulé. En plus d’avoir visiter de beaux endroits et admirer de beaux paysages, nous avions un excellent guide Farman Ali, très gentil, très souriant, très bienveillant. Je recommande vivement, thanks Gray Line
Al Ain is one of the agricultural centers of the Emirates, a university city and the birthplace of the first President of the UAE. The first stop is the archaeological Hili Garden which dates back over 500 years. Next, learn about the origins of the city at the Al Ain Museum. Enjoy a shaded walk through the Jimi and Hili oases, before visiting the Al Ain Palace Museum, the residence of the late ruler Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Explore the collection of family portraits and learn how the royal family lived and entertained guests to the palace. At the end of the day, you will be dropped off at your hotel in Dubai.

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.
Picked up a little late. Excursion was something different and very interesting. We were completely alone with the guide and therefore very flexible. Time was good enough. Food was delicious. Please for women: dress a bit covered at the camel market
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.
Super punctual, friendly driver who answered questions at any time, even took a short detour to show us more. Fully worth the price!
