We, a group of 14 from US, have had a wonderful time in Dubai. Ute thoughtfully planned our itinerary and provided clear and warm guidance along the way. We got a good overview of Dubai in a very effective manner. She is knowlegeable, articulate, flexible and patiently worked with us in a time of uncertainty. We really appreciate her efforts and meticulous guidance. We will recommend her guidance to anyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Celia. It was a pleasure to meet you and your friends. Have a wonderful cruise and see you next time.
Stephen HenryUnited Kingdom
Ute was fabulous. Arrived on time and took us to see everything we wanted to see.... stopping for us to take photos. We wouldn't have seen half as much on our own. She was very informative and friendly. At the end of the tour, we had afternoon tea booked, and she took us there to make sure we knew where we were going. Well worth the money.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you. I am happy you feel that you were able to make the most out of your time in Dubai. It was a pleasure meeting you.
Harvey FeldmanUnited States
Outstanding guide! Look no further if you want a guide to show you the highlights of Dubai. Ute speaks perfect English, but more important, is that she is extremely knowledgeable about the city, it's history and culture. She also knows great places to eat while on a full day tour. If that we're not enough, she is very friendly and accommodating. She volunteered to push my wife around all day in her wheelchair so that I was free to take photographs, which I avidly do when touring. Ute earns 5 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Harvey and Barbara. I am happy you enjoyed our 2 days together. I wish you a wonderful cruise. It was nice meeting you.
William Mailloux `United States
5 star all the way. Extremely knowledgeable, spoke English very well. She was very flexible in our tour. We decided at the last minute to go to the DUBAI MIRACLE GARDENS , not a problem. Late model, very comfortable car. She took us to all the major sites and attractions and to a very nice restaurant on the Creek for lunch. A fun guide to be with. TOTALLY recommend her.
We had a great day. Everything was perfect. We had the best tourguide in our life. Ute showed us the most beautiful sites of Dubai. Beside that she is a wonderful driver with a very comfortable car. We can strongly recommande her ! We wish her all the best. Kind regards Ruedi and Marlyse from Switzerland

Tamara HermansonUnited States
Ute is a terrific guide! She was right on time picking us up and modified the tour slightly based on things we had already done on our own. Her knowledge of the city and region is incredible! She provided backstory on how areas were developed, hit the highlights of the city in both new and old Dubai and really shows how much she enjoys the UAE and how she helps others enjoy the city. I would highly recommend this tour or any other that Ute provides. I will use her again when I return to the UAE!!
Jennifer F.United States
Ute was very knowledgeable, able to answer all our questions and provide interesting info. She was personable and friendly. The tour hit all the highlights we wanted, and she was ready to customize if we had different requests. She stayed with us while her driver would pick us up and transfer between stops -- a good system. Highly recommend!
Julie YbarraUnited States
Ute was knowledgable, personable & professional. She was awesome and made our short stay in Dubai. We did a full day tour, about 6 hours, starting at Ski Dubai and finishing on the queue for Burj Khalifa. We are a family of 5 (3 teens) doing a multi-day layover w Emirates and wanted the highlights. I think I might have driven her crazy with the pre-planning but she was patient. We got all the old and new world highlights without wasting precious time in traffic or queues, and in an A/C car (!!). wonderful
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie. It was a pleasure and thank you for the kind words.
William TumpneyUnited States
Definitely 5 Stars! We were extremely pleased with our tour of Dubai. Ute was very knowledgeable, accommodating, & pleasant. We had a great personalized tour of the city in a specific amount of time & arrived at the ship precisely on time. We would highly recommend her & would definitely use her as a guide on another visit.

Caroline StothardUnited Kingdom
We had a fantastic afternoon with Ute on our private tour. She was extremely knowledgeable about the city of Dubai and we enjoyed learning from her during our tour. We loved the abra ride to the spice and gold souk and it was lovely to have Ute with us during our shopping trip! I highly recommend a private tour as you can customise it to your own taste. I wouldn't hesitate in booking with Ute again if we ever return to Dubai! Thank you!!
Deborah MelloUnited States
Very well paced, interesting tour. Hit all the highlights of Dubai. Our guide, Ute was very knowledgeable and insightful. She has been here 25+ years and answered all our questions. We enjoyed spending the day with Ute. She had many recommendations for things to do with our free time. We will see her again when we return for a tour of Abu Dhabi. I guess that speaks volumes.
Charles BaumgartnerUnited States
Ute was great! We enjoyed our tour and our time with her.
Carole Ann O’ConnellStratford, ONTARIO, Canada
Ute is, without a doubt, the best guide we have ever had anywhere in the world. She is punctual, organized, efficient, and knowledgeable. Her information and ability to answer questions is unparalleled. In addition to all this, she has a delightful personality which radiates the whole time she is with you. Even though she has conducted this particular tour many, many times you got the impression that she was on a voyage of discovery and that we were very special. May her career be a long one with ToursbyL
Christina DuvalUnited States
Ute was a great tour guide. She showed up on time and found me in a crowded hotel lobby. Her vehicle was modern and she provided bottled water for me. Ute was easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about UAE, educating me about the emirates and the history of the area. She explained local customs and brought me to so many areas in Dubai, ensuring that I could hop out and take photos wherever I wanted to. It was a great day. 5 Stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christiane, so sorry to hear that you had to wait for a taxi. It must be because of the sale that's going on. God to know you reached home safe. Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope to see you back in the UAE again. Take care, Ute

We loved the day we spent with Ute. She is a wonderful tour guide! She was right on time picking us up at our airport hotel and had a perfectly planned day for us.
