We only booked a driver for the day - he was amazing and very knowledgeable. Would recommend this type of tour for anyone want to make up their own tour.

Ute was the perfect person to show us Abu Dhabi . She was very informative during the whole tour . That made drive to Abu Dhabi pass quick . She was able to show us most of Abu Dhabi eventhough we want to stop at Ferrari world for 1.5 hour . I will definitely contact her again when I come back . Thanks Ute for the nice day

Sandra WilliamsUnited States
Ute was professional, fun, informative, flexible, organized, efficient -- a great guide and terrific companion on our tour. And -- often an issue of more importance than some might expect -- her English was both good and her accent easy to understand. For those who have trouble with hearing, or who are unaccustomed to foreign accents, this can make a huge difference in the experience. We very much enjoyed our tour of Abu Dhabi with Ute and would enthusiastically recommend her as a guide to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I am so glad you enjoyed despite the sandstorm.

Susan SkochelakUnited States
Ute's private dour of Abu Dhabi was absolutely professional, informative and fun! I emailed her ahead of time because I had some specific things I wanted to do, such as tour the Louvre AbuDhabi. She was flexible and organized. She gave us extra time, for which I'm grateful. She was so informative, telling stories about the history of UAE, local wedding customs, camel racing, falconry. She kept up an ongoing commentary the whole tour - not too much, nor too little, just vivid descriptions that help you
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I am happy you enjoyed and it was nice meeting you.
Very well-informed guide with a nice personality. We have learnt so much within a few hours. A lot of great local travel tips were shared with us. Highly recommended!

Ute was wonderful, she had a lot of knowledge and was friendly. We were in Dubai and figure why not see Abu Dhabi for a day trip. Ute was able to give is a good overview tour of the city and made sure we were informed along the way. I would recommend her as a guide and would use her again.

Our second time with Ute, this time to explore Abu Dhabi and surroundings. Again we had a perfect day. Ute explained about everything we wanted to know and see. She was perfectly organized (e.g. provided additional dress for my wife for visiting a mosque) and she was also very open minded for additional desires and ideas during the whole day. You cannot ask for more. Thanks a million, Ute
We were with a group of 49 people from Aruba. We had 3 days of tours with Ute. She was one of the best tour guide we ever got from all our tours. Everybody was very happy and satisfied with the tours. We can recommended everyone who goes to Dubai or Abu Dhabi. Hire Ute as your guide.
Nancy HartillUnited States
Ute did our 8 hour "Private Abu Dhabi Tour from Dubai" tour with pick-up from our hotel in Dubai and drop off with luggage at Abu Dhabi. She allowed us a 2 hour visit at the Emirates Palace with lunch and completed the remaining 8 hours in style. She loaned me an Abaya for the visit of the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi as well. She earned 5 stars from me!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy, thank you very much. For further info on hotels or excursions, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am happy to keep you updated.
We had the greatest tour of Abu Dhabi with Ute. She is extremely knowledgeable and gives great insights into living in the UAE. I would highly recommend her for any of her excursions, and will definitely use her again on our next trip to Dubai.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review and for choosing me as your guide. It was a pleasure meeting you all. Hope to see you back again soon.
Doug MacMillanUnited States
Wonderful tour by an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Will highly recommend this to our friends who are coming in October.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much ! Nice to meet you !
Very good tour. Ute is very knowledgeable on everything in The Emirates. She has very good English (possibly better than the English themselves) and no doubt very good German. Will definitely use her again in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was nice meeting you and would love to welcome you again in The Emirates. I wish you a wonderful cruise and lots of memorable moments with your family.
We had a fun day in Abu Dhabi! Ute planned the day out really well. She also gave us fun facts about the UAE and its culture. I would definitely recommend her to friends going there. :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pamela, it was a pleasure meeting you and your family. I am glad you enjoyed our tour and your friends are always welcome.
Luis VegaUnited States
Ute was great. She was very knowledgeable, approachable and accommodating. She engaged in good conversational topics and had insights perhaps other general tours would not have known or communicated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I am happy you enjoyed our tour together.
Richard SteinbachWheeling, IL, United States
If you liked my review of Dubai overview with Ute then believe me when I tell you that a full day Abu Dhabi with her is more than twice as good. You cannot put a value on the details and shortcuts provided by Ute in seeing that you have a full experience in UAE from start to finish.Go ahead - eat the gold , insiders will know what I'm talking about and smile.Well worth the cost.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again for taking the time to write so positive about me and your Abu Dhabi experience.
A well organized and complete day with Ute. We are a 60+ couple from Canada, first time in UAE and wanted a day of highlights of AD. Ute paid attention to our wishes and planned a day with varied activities - all interesting for both of us. A highlight was the SZ mosque and opportunity to see a wide range of architecture. Ute was well informed about the area having lived here for many years with her family. No question went unanswered. Thank you Ute.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words. I am happy you enjoyed our day together.
Mike ScanlinUnited States
Fantastic guide. A German woman who has lived in Dubai for 20 years. Speaks fluent English and is incredibly knowledgeable about all the sites, activities, and culture of Dubai and Abu Dahbi. Loved the falcon hospital (got to hold and feed a falcon, and see about 50 of them), the Emirates Palace, the Sheikh Zayed mosque, and everything else she took us to. Excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Sterling Helwick JrUnited States
Thank you for your promptness and the map.Your endurance with this long day was noted as both the driver and guide.You successfully combined your Abu Dhabi tours into one trip.At Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, we arrived near midday.The closed front abaya was difficult to slip over my short sleeved knit top and knee length skirt.I saw other female tourists simply wearing the hijab over and around their heads.Please consider seasonal adjustments.Thank you for the clarification regarding the Dubai Metro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. As mentioned the abayas are just another additional service of mine to avoid waiting at the rental counter or for guests who are not dressed appropriately. It was fun spending the day with you in Abu Dhabi. I know it is very hot at this time of the year but I am glad you enjoyed. Hope to see you again sometime soon. Best regards, Ute
Cheryl AldenUnited States
Ute was absolutely fabulous! She was extremely knowledgeable about the areas history, past and present. Very personable and easy to converse with. I would highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cheryl. I look forward to welcoming you again hopefully in the near future. All the best for you, Ute
What can I say about Ute? She is an amazingly knowledgeable guide. We took a private tour (2 people) to Abu Dhabi and had an absolutely marvellous day. We learned and saw so much. Indeed we would consider a return trip to the UAE for an extended stay as a result of Ute's influence. Having lived in Dubai for so long during the development of this country, Ute is well placed to escort visitors and provide a very detailed account of how this country has developed; history and religious aspects of life alike
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Valerie. Thank you very much for your kind words. It was my pleasure showing you around and would love to do it again sometime soon.
Brenda HarrisUnited States
What a great day in Abu Dhabi! Ute was a great guide, full of knowledge of the area. We were able to see so much and get a real taste of the culture. We loved our stop at the Emirates Palace Hotel and the mosque was amazing. All of the stops were great with many memories to last. We highly recommend Ute.
Richard GroffKeizer, OR, United States
Ute provided us with a very enjoyable and extremely informative tour of Abu Dhabi, perfectly tailored to our passion for architecture and photography, and handily accommodated our physical limitations. She gave us many thoughtful insights into the UAE culture, and candidly answered numerous questions about everyday life and prevailing attitudes in this country. Her arrangements to get us into the Emirates Palace Hotel were a real treat. Her love for her adopted homeland really came through in her tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, thank you very much for your kind words. I am glad you enjoyed our day together. Hope to see you back sometime.
