Hetty is an excellent guide. She lives by the motto "be flexible". When we asked for assume it's to the itinerary, she figured out how to make it works so that we could spend more time visiting sites. Would hire again in a minute.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot! It was an honor to guide you and your family! I wish you all the best.

Hetty is tops. From our first email contact through tour day, she showed excellent responsiveness and flexibility for our tour--two qualities that are always important to us. Those were combined with broad subject knowledge, a sense of humor, and efficient use of time. When one of the scheduled stops was seen by us independently the day before on our own, she quickly adapted and substituted a wonderful alternative. One of the best guides we have been fortunate to hire over many years of foreign travel.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear George, Thank you so much for your kind words and it was really nice meeting you. I am very happy I could meet your requirements. For me as well are personalized tours the best. Thanks again and all the best. Hetty

Tour: #206307, Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates    view tour
Date: Feb 14/18

Met ons gezin van 11 pers. (leeftijden 11j tot 75j.) hebben we na de Dubai tour ook genoten van wat Abu Dhabi te bieden had. Ook hier heeft Hetty (onze gids) haar uiterste best gedaan om iedereen op een aangename en leerrijke manier een fijne dag te bezorgen. De tour heeft ons iets minder gecharmeerd, misschien vanwege de groet afstanden die per bus moesten afgelegd worden. De gids was zeker TOPPIE en bij een volgend bezoek zullen wij zeker opnieuw beroep doen op haar diensten.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dank voor jullie uitgebreide en eerlijke feedback!

Met de familie (11 pers.) voor de 1ste maal op vakantie in Dubai. Onze voorkeur ging naar een gids die Nederlands sprak, daar de jongste (11j.) en de grootouders (75j.) de Engelse taal niet machtig zijn. De tour was super en zeer gevarieerd. Iedereen heeft zijn gading gevonden. Hetty, de gids, had zin voor humor, wist ons te boeien met verhalen en informatie. Een dag om nooit meer te vergeten, iedereen heeft genoten. Een aanrader voor jong & oud.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ha familie Paermentier, Dank jullie wel voor deze mooie woorden. Het was ook een genot om met jullie op pad te mogen!

What a fabulous day with Hetty in Dubai! Her knowledge was excellent & she created a great itinerary for us. Hetty arranged for our driver to pick us up in Abu Dhabi & take us to Dubai. We packed a lot into the day but we never felt rushed or that there was not enough time anywhere. We loved Hetty's insights of the old and the new Dubai & her passion & knowledge of her adopted country made it very special. We had lots of fun & would highly recommend Hetty as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nev, Kerry and Kate, You were such a wonderful audience and family. I really enjoyed touring and planning with you. I wish you all the best and maybe we meet again! Warm regards, Hetty

Tour went Exactly as planned. Guide showed up early and allowed customization of itinerary. She and the driver were very engaging and knowledgeable of atea and region.

Hetty was a wonderful tour guide for my one day in Dubai. She was extremely organized, knowledgeable and flexible. Hetty is not interested in giving a standardized one size fits all tour, but rather concentrates on what your interests are. I mentioned my work in special needs and within a few minutes we were visiting the most amazing art program for adults with special needs. I got a wonderful overview of Dubai in my 20 hour layover.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbara, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. This is what I like most in my job! Hearing and feeling the subjects my guests are really interested in so I can make the difference. I myself had a wonderful time with you and I wish you all the best. Hetty

With just a few hours to spare Hetty certainly maximised on the time available and managed to show us the highlights of Dubai. I relied on her expertise and she certainly did not disappoint. Information not just on the sites but also life in general here. Brilliant time management. She is enthusiastic and assertive. Finished our holiday at a lovely restaurant with full view of fountain show thanks to her recommendation and reservation. She changed our opinion of Dubai. Thank you Hetty. Brilliant job.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Joan and Chris. What a honour to guide around the best tour guide of Malta! We had such a lovely day and for sure we could have spent many more hours together. Next time you will be my guide in Malta!

We found Hetty to be a superb tour guide and host, she certainly exceeded our expectations. Hetty's level of knowledge and professionalism in all aspects is outstanding, plus when you add to that her warm and friendly personality, it just makes the tour feel that little bit extra special. We are experienced travelers and soon felt at ease realising that that we simply couldn't have chosen better, it is fair to say that we all felt truly privileged to have found the wonderful Hetty for our guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, Shirley, George and Joan, Thank you so much for your kind words! It was definitely an honour for me to be your private guide. Hope to see you again! I will try to send you some pictures. Hetty Hetty
