Description

Discover the famous oasis of Al Ain and its archaeological site which is more than 4,000 years old!

After pick-up from your hotel, you will set off across the desert towards the Hajar Mountains.

The tour continues with a visit to the Al Ain museum and the Al Jahili fort, the former residence of the local governor. You will then stop at the Al Ain Oasis where your guide will explain how the 'falaj', an important underground irrigation system, works. You'll be surprised to discover a sea of greenery in the desert!

Next, you will visit the old palace, the former residence of Sheikh Zayed, the founder of the United Arab Emirates. Before leaving Al Ain, you will stop near the hot springs at the foot of Jebel Hafeet, the highest point in the Emirate. You will also discover the largest camel market in the United Arab Emirates, after which you will be returned to Dubai and dropped off at your hotel.

  • 3 excursions avec ceetiz en dehors de DUBAI pendant notre semaine. Il n'y a que celle-ci oĂč nous n'avions pas de guide parlant français, c'est peut-ĂȘtre Ă  envisager car c'est un plus. Timing bien respectĂ©, repas libre rapide dans un centre commercial. Petit groupe de 10 personnes. A combiner avec FUJEIRAH et ABU D'ABI
