Sharjah and Ajman City Tour

There's much more to the UAE than Dubai, as you will discover on this fascinating and enjoyable day tour of two of the other Emirates. Sharjah and Ajman are packed full of culture, art, beauty, history and heritage - offering an unmissable chance to broaden your knowledge of this intriguing region and see some of the highlights of these stunning cities.

The bustle, vibrancy and gleaming towers of the big metropolis are what attract millions of visitors to Dubai – one of the world’s most modern and advanced cities. However, the United Arab Emirates contains a vast array of other cultural and historic attractions just waiting to be explored. Our day trip from Dubai to two of the other Emirates – Sharjah and Ajman – provides an ideal opportunity for you to really make the most of your holiday and gain a fascinating insight into this region and its unique heritage.

Our first stop is Sharjah, a charming city considered by many to be the cultural heart of the UAE. Its commitment to culture, art and historical preservation is plain to see, and this is what makes it such a delightful place to visit. Situated between Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah provides an intriguing blend of the modern and the traditional. You will encounter many art galleries and museums throughout the city, alongside prime examples of Arabic architecture and beautifully preserved areas showcasing the city’s rich cultural heritage.

Sharjah demonstrates a clear commitment to preserve its distinctive Arabian customs and lifestyle, along with its Islamic cultural traditions, and you will find it a welcoming and hospitable place to visit. In addition to all the history and culture, you will also discover a vibrant and thrilling shopping experience among both the modern malls and the traditional souks – including the proud centrepiece of the city, the famous Blue Souk. Here, amid its beautiful design and distinctive Islamic decoration, you can shop for bargains galore.

After an enjoyable visit to Sharjah, we head just a short distance north-east to the smallest of all the Emirates – Ajman. Its position as a long-established port town gives it historical importance, and this, combined with its undeniably picturesque beauty, makes it a wonderful place to spend a few hours.

Among the highlights of Ajman is its carefully preserved and restored 18th century fort – the heart of the city. Now home to a fascinating museum documenting local history, you will find intriguing displays and artefacts relating to everything from military battles to everyday family life.

For a day packed full of history, culture and enjoyment, don’t miss this fascinating tour.
