What a great moment! Thank you Valérie for transmitting your knowledge and passion. Our half day visiting, the Dubai museum and it's surroundings, the old part of the city with it's "souk", a local restaurant with its traditonnal dishes, all was perfectly timed. Your 10 years experience at Dubai is very interesting as you can explain how quick construction goes.... More

Since we have never been to Dubai but have lots of friends who have lived here, we arrived with high expectations but little knowledge. We knew we wanted to get an overview of the area with an "insider". So we booked Val off her previous reviews and it was perfect. She picked us up at our hotel. She was on... More

Who would have thought that a Frenchwoman in Dubai would have been the perfect guide for an American father and his 22 year old son? Well, I could not imagine a more wonderful person to make us feel at home in a foreign land. She has deep knowledge of her adopted country, but that is not why she is so... More

I've been living in Dubai for 10 years. I received VIP guests from France and I've booked Valerie for a 3 hrs trip in the old Dubai. Even after so many years here I learned a lot !! My guests were absolutely satisfied by the visit, they could better understand how the city became what it is today. It really... More

On January 5th and 6th Val guided my family ( me, my husband and our 15 year old son) in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Both days were great and productive, with Val showing us all the major sites and teaching us about UAE history and its present days. She drives a Kia Carnival and we felt very confortable with her.She... More

Before meeting Val, we considered Emirates as too much about not much. Val added a third dimension to the place making us discover the deepness of the place and most of all the enlighted achievement of its inhabitant. Actually we are the worst travel Customers you could imagine being picky, spoiled, having seeing most of the places in the world... More

Val escorted two very tired people around Dubai showing us both the old and new areas. Not only did she show us the Souk and ancient areas but also gave us a true indication of what is happening in Dubai. Her comments on the culture and customs of UAE people was also fascinating. I can highly recommend Val to any... More

Val is amazing, she has a great personality , she was able to understand our needs and tailored a tour that met our expectations perfectly. Val is European but has been a Dubai resident for a long time and she has expert knowledge of the local culture and history. I can recommend her services with both eyes closed ..... You... More

We (6 friends from NYC) had a great private tour with Val. She picked us up from the airport and spent 9 hours with us on a private tour of Dubai. We had a jam packed schedule but she was very accommodating in terms of what we wanted to see, do, shop and eat. She took us to all the... More

Valerie provided us with a one day tour of Dubai on a Sunday from 8:00AM until 4:00PM. She took us to both the old and new parts of this fabulous city. We managed to see sights that we otherwise would not have had the opportunity to see in our brief visit. I would highly reccomend Valerie to anyone with a... More
