Overall - average rating. I wouldn't go if knew in advance what's the tour going to be like. Please see below a couple of comments:

- tour is very much like driving from one spot to another
- out of the entire list, you will actually see two places: the old Souq (i.e. market) and very briefly the Museum of Islamic culture, other stops are literally stops - you get out of the van and snap photos with a two line explanation
- the Museum of Islamic culture is a heavy historical place - which is somehow left without much attention to it
- last hour you are given free time at the mall (i.e. Central Souq) which is completely out of my expectations, I wouldn't get the guided tour to be brought to the shopping mall to wander aroud
- all mosques which are in the program are photo stop only with 2-4 minutes explanatory note and plenty of free time, but (!) you are not allowed inside the mosque

As a recommendation for tour management: from my point of view - the tour needs a significant re-design or price re-considered. A price of nearly $35 for this tour, compared to the $42 tour to Abu Dhabi (a day long) - this is just day and night. Abu Dhabi was amazing, the guide was very much engaging and easy going, lots of information and places covered. Maybe this is a matter of the guide as well - but it's for the company to consider (not sure the feedback is read).

Dear mihail439, Greetings from ORIENT TOURS! Thank you for your feedback which will help us in our endeavour to constantly improve our services. We shall forward your feedback to the concerned departments so that they can take the necessary measures to ensure we provide the service that our guests expect from us. However, we would like to clarify a few points that were raised in your review: The tour you had joined was a sharing basis bilingual excursion conducted in 2 languages – German & English. Our tour guide Abdullah, bilingual in German & English, is one of our most experienced tour guides and we are surprised having received this feedback for him. As this was a sharing basis tour, our tour guide had to follow a fixed itinerary and cover all stops as planned. The excursion was conducted as per the description. The two mosques i.e. Al Noor Mosque and King Faisal mosque, we covered in our excursion are photo stops only and it’s indeed not allowed for tourists to enter inside as per rules and regulation of local authorities during our tour. Our tour guide covered the Sharjah Islamic museum and the Sharjah Heritage museum as promised all the while giving explanations about the history of the stops in 2 languages and also covered Souq Al Arsa - a direct contrast to the super modern, glitzy malls in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. A piece of history well preserved featuring traditional Arabian architecture and the typical ‘Bedouin’ style atmosphere that allows visitors to haggle for goods like the Arabs used in the old days. The Souq Al Markazi or Central/Blue Souq is a stop in which we provide the guests with free time to explore the Souq or to shop for souvenirs by themselves. We apologize for not being able to meet your expectations. We do hope that if you do visit the U.A.E. in future, we will be able to serve you again. We would recommend choosing a private excursion experience with an exclusive vehicle and tour guide just for you and an itinerary that is flexible to suit your preferences. Thank you for the time to review us! Best regards, Sarah P. Dubke Manager Guest Services ORIENT TOURS LLC

Sharjah Central Souq was a place to relish. going around the Blue Souq gives your a feel of local shopping. I enjoyed the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization the most, dont miss the top floor star painted ceiling.
The guides are fluent in English and in just 3-4 hrs you get to understand Sharjah upclose.

Dear Zippysh, Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback about your Sharjah City Tour that you recently joined with us. Great to read y our review which will definitely help other readers to book this tour to "The Cultural Capital of the Islamic World" with us. Sharjah is certainly a must-see when in the UAE as it is so different and interesting. Glad our guide had advised you to go to the dome of the Islamic Civilization museum to gather the beautifully painted ceiling! We would love to see you on one of our tours/safaris soon again. Thank you for choosing ORIENT TOURS and taking the time to review us! Best regards, Sarah P. Dubke Manager Guest Services ORIENT TOURS LLC
