Excellent tour of Ras Al Khaimah sites - The tour of sites in the Ras Al Khaimah emirate, including Jebel Jais, was excellent. Tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was excited to show us around. This tour is listed only if you search from Ajman -- I suggest it be listed from Dubai -- which is where I started from. Also, it might be a good idea if the tour mentions up-front that there will be photographs to optionally purchase. In any case, the tour itself was well worthwhile.
