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!
I had such an amazing day guided by Huda out through the Liwa oasis, including some amazing sites like the Liwa fort and Moreeb dune - which is absolutely massive. I must come back to see the races up and down this dune! The Liwa tour is a road trip, so most importantly thank you Huda for opening yourself and letting me get to know you, to see the UAE from your perspectives and experiences. I really loved our discussions in the car all day and hope to tour with you again when I'm next back in the UAE.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Damian for your commitment. I had great time with you and I am glad that you enjoyed the tour and willing to do it again. I hope to see you in your next visit to UAE

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.

Outstanding experience! Our guide and the tour provided a wealth of knowledge and diversity of flavor. We were introduced to the historical Arab delicacies and what the locals are eating now that the community is a blend of nationalities. I highly recommend the guide and the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the positive feedback. I am glad that you enjoyed the food and the overall experiance. Food tour is always a great chance to talk about history and poeple lifestyle.

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.

Huda was a wonderful tour guide. For many hours the three of us asked her question after question and she answered all of them with knowledge of her country and religion and even politics (only if we asked). She was delightful to be with and even had her sister Merrium drive us all the many hours. Her sister was wonderful too although her English was limited, we had nice conversations with her. Would certainly recommend Huda to anyone else and we have had many guides all over the World !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much for your positive feed back. I enjoyed the trip with you and I wish I had the option to rate travelers because you deserve 5 stars. The tour with you was fun and we had a lot to share and talk about. I liked that you are very interested in all the small details about the culture and life in Liwa area. thanks again.
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 GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank for rating the tour. It was my pleasure to be your guide in Abu Dhabi and I am glad that you like the tour.

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
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kerry, Nev and Kate. It was such an enjoyable and fun time for me too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the rating.
We had an excellent tour with Huda, she was knowledgeable, informative and had a great sense of humour. She communicated promptly prior to our arrival and offered a number of suggestions to make the best of our brief time in Abu Dhabi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Molly for the positive feedback. I enjoyed your company. It was fun and I am happy that you have enjoyed it.

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.
