Overview
Visit Al Ain from Abu Dhabi on this full-day tour and avoid having to hire a car or find local cabs or buses. Enjoy the scenery on route, and tour the highlights of this ‘Garden City’ with a guide to provide background. View Bronze Age finds at Al Ain Museum, visit the camel race track, souks, and palm groves, and enjoy an included lunch and admissions for a great-value trip.
What to Expect
Your tour starts at your Abu Dhabi hotel, where you board a climate-controlled coach destined for Al Ain, situated near the mountainous UAE-Oman border.

On route, hear how Al Ain’s parks have given it the nickname of the ‘Garden City,’ and learn how ancient archaeological finds have proved that the area was first settled in the Bronze Age.

View the Bronze Age artifacts at Al Ain National Museum and explore the Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum, once home to the UAE’s late founding father. Then, call  at the camel racing track, livestock market, and food market to glimpse local life before heading into a palm grove to see its falaj—mud-built irrigation channels.

Next, drive up Jebel Hafeet mountain for bird’s-eye city views before seeing the hot springs at its base and relaxing over a buffet lunch at a local hotel.

Finally, your tour concludes at the original start point.

Worth doing for the contrast

This trip is worth doing, if only because it takes you out of Abu Dhabi and gives an additional perspective on the extraordinary - and somewhat bizarre - country that is the UAE. I was fortunate to join a small group (only 4 in all),...More

Must-Do Al Ain Trip with Saleem Highlight of our Visit

Wow-our trip to Abu Dhabi City would have been very one-sided had we not seen Al Ain with Saleem. Saleem introduced us to an entirely different aspect of the Emirate from many perspectives, including its traditions, culture, history, nature, religion, food. What a great fun...More
