I was born and raised in in Abu Dhabi and I've lived all my life here. Being an Emirati, I have the advantage to understand the local culture from the perspective of a native. Local guides are hard to find here, that makes my tours so special.
During my tours, I like to introduce and explain our heritage, culture, and lifestyle. I tend to focus on the experience, and that's what adds a special value and makes the visit unforgettable. With me, you will explore Abu Dhabi through the eyes of a local while I explain about our culture, behavior, and traditions.
My guests are always encouraged to ask questions about those parts of our culture that are considered private, offensive or "taboo": I believe this helps to eliminate prejudices about a different culture.
I have worked as a site guide in some of the traditional festival held in Abu Dhabi like Liwa Dates Festival, Al dhafra Camels Festival, Mirfa Water Sports Festival and more, because I believe that these events are designed and developed for locals and it's a perfect opportunity to get to mingle with locals and experience the true Emirati lifestyle.
Since I have been handling VIP and high delegation, including Sheikhs and governmental officials from overseas, I ensure that the tours I deliver are personalized and customized to the guest needs. Please feel free to message me to make your tour customized and fitted to your requirements.
Abu Dhabi is a modern city that changed a lot since the oil exploration in the 1950's and that created a unique overlapping between the Bedouin culture and the modern life style. The population here consists of more than 200 nationalities where each adds to the culture creating a mosaic blend of cultures that worth a deep look to how the cultures here mix and live in coexistence. In Abu Dhabi, whether you are looking to a building, mosque, fort or a beach in every place in the city there is a unique fascinating story to tell.

Houda gave an excellent tour; her knowledge being extensive and her personality made it comfortable to ask any question that came to mind. I had fun and will share my Abu Dhabi story for years to come. Thank you!
