Top attractions in Al Ain
What people are saying about Al Ain
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
FUNTOURS DUBAI, being part British gives the most elegant and upright service with absolutely no short cut. On 09/14/13, their very professional and gracious Driver Qismat pulled up at our Hotel pick up exactly on scheduled time. On that day, the Driver had only my Sister and I for the entire 7 hour tour. He was very patient and informative all the time and showed us everything and more of our scheduled activities. This Dubai to El Ain day tour offers far more very interesting activities that FunTours advertise. For the very reasonable all inclusive cost, they include the nearly 2 hour drive showed us the entire village, local market place, Museum, Zoo, Camel Market, soaked our feet on a Rock Spring. He drove us thru the very top of the highest Jabel Hafeet Mountain which were spectacular in hight and beauty and most surprisingly enough, Funtours, being British, reserved for us a grand Buffet at the magnificent Hilton Hotel located at the foot of the Mountain. Great value!!
Our driver was almost a guide, as he took us to many of the sights we may have found difficult to find without him. His driving was also careful, something some of the drivers we have used, are not. They left us fearing for our lives in the manic Dubai traffic, but this one was careful and considerate to us as nervous Europeans too! The tour took in many places which we had asked to visit, like Dubai creek, gold souk and the Burj Halifa. Highly recommend this driver especially if you want to preserve your life!
Friendly English speaking driver, very informative and patient to drive us wherever we wanted to go. We had plenty of time to roam about and take photos at various locations, even had time to shop and have lunch! Great on time service and our guide was amazing! We would definitely do this again.
We had a 13 hour layover. This tour was worth the money and time spent. Be sure to confirm pick up time and place, as our driver was a bit late... although ( I thought our pick up was at one, and driver thought plane landed at one) we had our driver pick us up at airport.
