"Unique"- By Tanja I

"First of all, this is the only tour in the entire country where you will get to do something like this. It starts off with a kind greeting at the lovely hotel marina. Then you take a tour along the canal alongside the mangroves while guide gives a summary of the history of pearl-diving in the UAE. Very insightful!"

"Great Experience" - By Inana & Tina

"Thank you for this great experience. The tour was very informative, with a very knowing guide. We know now more about the culture of the UAE. My daughter loves the pearl - we will go to a jeweler to make a nice ring."
