Description

Discover the riches of Sharjah, the Emirate known as the "Pearl of the Gulf"!

Departing from your hotel you will travel to Sharjah, a neighbouring Emirate of Dubai. The first stop will be in front of the Al Noor mosque on the Al Buhaira Corniche. You will then visit the Faisal mosque, one of the largest mosques in the world, where you will have the opportunity to take some photos.

The tour continues with a visit to the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization. There are several galleries where you can admire antiques collected from across the Muslim world, representing the contribution of Islamic art to world culture.

After this visit you will be taken to the historic centre of Sharjah. After a tour of the souk Al Arsa, you'll visit the Sharjah Heritage Museum where you can see items from a traditional Emirati household.

Before returning to your hotel, you can stop off at the Al Marzaki souk to pick up some souvenirs of this memorable guided tour!
