Ute is a terrific guide! Not only did she show us the sites, her insights into them were very educational and interesting. She was prompt, professional and a pleasure to spend 2days with. She also made herself available to answer any questions we had prior to our arrival. She gets 5 ⭐️! Our only comment is to the corporation. In its advertising it should state that a lot of the sites are more drive-bys. Not knowing the region at all, we might have wanted to arrange to spend more time at a place.

Ute was our guide for a full-day tour of Abu Dhabi. She is very personable and full of information about the area. She arranged a tour at the Falcon Hospital and spent extra time guiding us around the Grand Mosque. She even thoughtfully brought along some beautiful abayas for us to wear for the visit. She also arranged for us to have lunch at the Emirates Palace Hotel, and got tickets for our visit to the Louvre. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we would highly recommend Ute!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Diane. I am happy that you have good memories of our Abu Dhabi Tour and hope to welcome you back soon.

Excellent tour of Abu Dhabi. Our tour guide UTE was full of so much knowledge and gave us an insightful 5 hour tour always with a smile on her face. Our favourite part would have to have been the Grand Mosque which is a must. She even kindly dropped us off at the Shopping mall at the end our tour. Thanks UTE. Will definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting a snap shot of Abu Dhabi.

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.

We were very impressed with Ute's tour of Abu Dhabi. Ute was extremely friendly, co-operative with our requests to be dropped at the cruise terminal after our tour; she was extremely knowledgeable and shared her knowledge with us. If we had known Ute also did tours in Dubai, we would have booked her for that as well. Unfortunately, we had already booked our tour there before leaving Australia. I would highly recommend touring with this company and particularly Ute.

Had we not had this introduction we would have been hunkered down and unable to enjoy our time in the UAE. She is tops.

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.

Ute was truly amazing. Her knowledge of Abu Dhabi, but also, each of the other Emirates, was comprehensive. Whether we were talking about oil, government, sports, or cultures she was extremely knowledgeable. We laughed a lot- and that is always a criteria I hope to find in a guide. As a photographer she placed me in great places to capture the utter magnificence of Abu Dhabi architecture. She also had a little surprise that I won't reveal, but it shows the true meaning of pre-planning.

Very informative; excellent itinerary; responsive to requests to include or exclude locations; excellent suggestion and choice for lunches; safe driver; pleasant personality. Only suggestion: arrive at the Burj Khalifa earlier since the waiting for the elevator on Saturday was about 45 min, making us get to the top in the dark. It also took 45 min to catch the elevator down. Not a fault of Ute, this venue was the single disappointing experience. Ute, many thanks for a delightful introduction to UAE.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, thank you for your kind words. I am very sorry to hear that you had to wait this long to get to the top. Dubai at night is very impressive but I do understand that the idea was to see the sunset. It was a pleasure spending two days with both of you and I hope you will pass by again some time soon.

I recently had a 2 day tour booked with Ute, in Dubai and as I was so impressed with her, I extended my tour by one day. Ute could not have been a more knowledgeable, fun, easy person to be with. She showed me so much of Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah and imparted her extensive knowledge about each place. Ute's vehicle was impeccable, and as a nervous passenger, I felt absolutely safe and relaxed. I would highly recommend Ute to anybody planning a private tour in Dubai and surrounds.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Yvonne, it was great spending time with you and I am glad you enjoyed. Keep traveling and make sure you pass through Dubai again soon. Best regards, Ute

She was very informative, and gave us some insight into the life of an expat in the Emirates. We would definitely recommend Ute as a guide for any visitor to this part of the world.

Ute was very professional and helpful helping me to see quite a bit of Dubai in 9 hours time. Hearing about living in the area from the perspective of a female was invaluable. She knew the best picture spots and ins and outs of the souks that I on my own would have never been able to figure out.Don't miss out going to the top of the Burj Kalifa or at least cocktails at the Burj Al Arab as both really added to the experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nicole, it was a pleasure meeting you and showing you around. See you next time. Scorching hot regards from Dubai We have 115F now. All the best, Ute

Our guide was Ute. She is simply the best guide I have ever had. Her English was flawless and her breath of knowledge was astounding. We were extremely comfortable in the car she drove. She was able to keep up a constant interesting commentary on everything we drove by and instantly answered any questions fully and was able to resume the commentary without missing a beat. She covered all of the sites promised and even added extras. I only hope I can use her in the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Juanita, thank you for taking the time to write such nice words about me. I am happy that you enjoyed your time in Abu Dhabi. It was nice meeting all of you. Sunny regards from Dubai, Ute

Ute was knowledgeable, personable, professional, and flexible. She took us on an amazing tour of Abu Dhabi. We covered all the highlights, the history and some places that were off the beaten path. She allowed us to spend a bit more time in places we really wanted to explore, although there was a loose structure to her tour. Because of her vast knowledge and perspective we were able to get all of our questions answered about culture and history. She was so good we would not hesitate to book her again.
