4 of us did a day trip from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Huda and our driver were absolutely wonderful. She was knowledgeable, friendly and very accommodating. She answered every question we had about culture, religion, politics, history or the economy. She was always open, friendly with a sense of humor. Huda and our driver went above and beyond when we arrived back at our hotel to pick up our luggage, they offered to take to out ship. I highly, highly recommend Huda & will use her the next time in UAE.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much I really enjoy my time with. I’ll be waiting for your next visit

What makes this tour guide special is her willingness to discuss the life of an Emirate citizen from both a religious and cultural point of view. I spent a significant fraction of the day asking about issues of Muslim family life and issues that you cannot get from the tour books. Even when my questions crossed the line, she provided answers. If you want to see the monuments there are lots of tour guides. If you want to understand the life of an Emiratee, this is the tour guide to chose.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for ur comment appreciate it.

We had an amazing tour with Huda. She was extremely knowledgable about UAE history & local culture. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was beautiful. We enjoyed seeing The Palm & tasting dates at the market. We had a great time at the Louve. The highlight for us was hanging out with Huda & her sister Miriam. They are both warm, funny, spirited & our tour felt like a fun day out with friends. The lunch at a local restaurant was delicious & authentic. Huda is an excellent guide & this was an excellent tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Laura for the comment.. I enjoyed the tour with you

Huda is a very knowledgeable guide, willing to share about her experience and to adapt her tour to client interests. She is very personable and communicates her enthusiasm for Abu Dhabi and its culture in an informative manner. We asked to go to the Louvre in addition to seeing the splendid Mosque and the village lifestyle museum. She also took us to the local market to understand about the many varieties of dates. She very kindly dropped us at our cruise port and kept to the schedule we requested.

This is a great tour with a knowledgeable, friendly local. Huda answered all of our questions and introduced us to beautiful Abu Dhabi. The Grand Mosque is an architectural delight, stunning with its glittering Italian chandeliers and intricate floral designs. I highly recommend this private tour for anyone wanting to have a relaxed and scenic experience in Abu Dhabi and to make a connection with a local and to understand Emirati, Arab and Muslim culture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment.
Our friends and I recently booked a tour with Huda when we stopped in Dubai on our cruise. No problem to accommodate an extra passenger and to collected from the ship and drop us back again. Huda met us at the ship, on time, with a huge smile, with excitement and obvious pride to show us the wonders of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Huda is a modern young woman from UAE with perfect English and a passion to showcase her country and at the same time learn new cultures from her guests. Thanks, Huda

Huda was our tour guide in Abu Dhabi on March 28, 2019. She added a dimension and richness to our tour that exceeded the fee we paid for the tour. She took us to a local market where my daughters and I had fresh coconut and shopped for spices and watched Huda barter on my behalf. I learned about types of dates (I love dates) I never knew exsisted! Huda assisted with our Mosque attire, this was such a cultural learning experience for my daughters! We learned of the history and so much more!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment. It was glad meeting you and your daughters. The tour was wonderful with you.

A wonderful day with Huda who picked us up at the hotel in Dubai and drove us to Abu Dhabi. She tailored the tour to our preferences and showed us "must see" sights as well. Excellent conversation and insights topped by a meal at a Saudi restaurant before returning to the hotel in Dubai. We were so grateful to have this private tour as we encountered large cruise ship tour groups. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for ocomment. I am glad that you enjoyed your day.

Ever had a tour that left you not only thrilled about what you've seen, but also just as happy to have met the person who shared them with you? I felt as if I experienced a cross-cultural immersion as the welcome guest of a brilliant native friend who knows and loves her country. Huda uncovered the human and cultural contexts for all that we saw, making the tour unforgettable. She also tackled the "taboo" questions, eager to dispel common misconceptions. A great tour by the perfect guide. Don't miss it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Wayne for your review of the tour. It was my pleasure to be your tour guide. I enjoyed the tour and I wish you had more time to spend in here. Truly I feel that I gained a new friend.
