The trip was amazing, the driver picked us up at 8 am from the hotel and drove directly to the village. Unfortunately, we chose the wrong season for the trip because the dam was closed as well as most of the shops within Hatte Heritage Village area, hence if you are to visit it book it on a winter month; less heat and more stuff to see.
We went for 30 mins horse riding and got to see most of the towers in the Hatta Heritage Village and also the hill park which is full of grass, trees and you can hear the birds singing, making your excursion more enjoyable.
History lovers will appreciate the village as it combines elements of traditional arabic architecture and living with more modern arabic history, as one can see within the weaponry in the Hatta Heritage Village area which includes exhibitionary swords, daggers and muskets from the 18th, 19th and 20th century.
Abdul was very kind and we talked a lot on our way to the village; basically we did not get bored at all.
We are now 4 days in Dubai, got to see most of it, but we both agreed that this excursion was the best experience so far
