Huda was very good at communicating before the tour. On the day of the tour, she was prompt. She gave a good overview of Abu Dhabi, and her strength was convincing people who were security or otherwise restricting access to landmarks to let us come and see them even though it may not have been publicly available. The downsides were having to pay extra for a larger vehicle (total of 4, including 2 children), and the unstructured nature of the tour. I wish we had seen Yas Island.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank for posting your feedback. I am happy that you are satisfied with the pre-tour communication and planing phase. I always try my best to give the best experiance to my guests as you mentioned. About the extra cost and I have to add it as I hire a bigger car when needed or requested. We could add Yas island if you asked for that in the planing phase.
On arrival at cruise terminal we could not find our guide. Sent her a text and she replied she was outside waiting. Finally found her but she did not have a sign with our name on it. Suggest in future she displays the clients name. Her car was not very clean we had to wipe away food crumbs before getting in. Huda was very pleasant and knew a lot about her country. Her sister was our driver so Huda could explain things and point out buildings etc. Went to a local restaurant which had great food
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your review. I appreciate your feedback back which always helps to improve the guests experience. Im glad that you liked the food and you were satisfied about my knowledge about AbuDhabi. Regarding the sign board, I try always to make use of technology and get to the travelers by sharing personal pic with them. This was always successful with guests specially that in the terminal usually I am the only one who wears the traditional black abaya. I will consider having this option in future
We are absolutelly happy for Huda as gouid in Abu Dhabi. She is full with energy, open-minded, knowledgable, friendly and proud about Abu Dhabi. From another side she is open for different view. In case if you want to more see Emirate and understand Emirate people, ask Huda to be your gide - 5 star trip quarratied Thank you Igo

Tour was first rate, the highlight of our Persian Gulf adventure. The Sheik Zayed grand Mosque is truly a wonder of the modern world. Abayas were provided for the 3 girls in our party. We really appreciated Huda's openness and frankness, she is a first rate guide who delivered the tour at the right level. As we came from a cruise ship we declined lunch which gave us more time for touring. Huda patiently explained the Hajj and Mecca pilgrimage which we found interesting and informative.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for the positive feedback. I am glad that we could make the best of your time in Abu Dhabi.

Huda is a perfect guide,she shows you every thing what is interesting and tells a lot about the way of life there, if you like to try some typical Arabian food,she will bring you to a nice restaurant.Very good way to get a general opinion about Abhu Dabi and there style of living.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the comment Freddy. I personally enjoyed the tour and your humor. I like always to share local food experience with my guest and am glad that you liked it.
We spent two wonderful days with Huda as our guide in Abu Dhabi in mid January. In the planning phase she responded to our emails very quickly and put together a great itinerary, weaving our requests with her suggestions and making sure we were able to see as much as possible while understanding and appreciating their history and culture. We had a lot of fun and would certainly recommend Huda as a guide. Kerry, Nev and Kate, Brisbane, Australia

We spend two days touring Abu Dhabi from Dubai with Houda as our tour guide. Houda was very informative and as a local herself, she has depth knowledge on the culture and heritage of Abu Dhabi. Along with a good sense of humour, she displayed a high respect, concern, patience and care for two of my elderly parent who were joining the trip as well. She make sure that we had a great time during the two days period from start to finish. For that, we were grateful to have her as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Siti it was my pleasure to be with you and your lovely family. I enjoyed the tour with you and I highly appreciate your positive comments.
