Al Ain Day Trip from Abu Dhabi with Lunch

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
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.
  • Visit the ‘Garden City’ of Al Ain in a day from Abu Dhabi
  • Travel to the city with ease and experience another side of the UAE
  • Visit museums, markets, and date groves, and learn about them via a guide
  • Good for history buffs, with lunch, entry fees, and coach transport included
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.
