Head to Al Ain with your private guide after being picked up from your Abu Dhabi hotel. The city, whose name literally translates to “the spring,” is nicknamed the Garden City for its abundance of lush greenery. To experience its natural beauty, choose to visit the Al Ain oasis and date plantation, which is filled with swaying palms that shade the walkways and is fed by a 3,000-year-old irrigation system. Get a stunning overview of the radiant city from Jebel Hafeet, a rocky mountain that rises 4,068 feet (1,240 m) above Al Ain.
For a look into history, pay a visit to the birthplace of Sheikh Zayed, the founding father of the United Arab Emirates, at the impressive Qsar Al Muwaji. You can also stroll among the private rooms and gardens of the first president's former residence at the Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum. Stop at the Al Ain National Museum to explore the comprehensive archaeology exhibit, which features artifacts from the Hili Gardens, one of Al Ain's UNESCO World Heritage sites. No matter where you go, your enthusiastic guide supplements the experience with engaging facts and insightful anecdotes, giving greater depth to each location.
