Planning a Dubai stopover on the way home from Europe saw us come across Val on Tripadvisor. A couple of tours seemed a good idea – and so it proved to be. Emails to Val saw us organised with variations that we wanted – no worries as we Aussies say. Val even suggested we change the hotel –glad we did... More

We had organised a day tour with Val. She was super responsive and organised. As we wanted to do a desert tour the day before,she recommended a company, Arabian Adventure Tours. They were fabulous. Val organised the tour on our behalf, paid for it and arranged for them to pick us up. As to our tour day, the whole day... More

Valerie is the best person to show you whatever your heart desires in the UAE! We arrived in Dubai with a full day to spend exploring. Beforehand, I worked with Valerie on my wish list -- and she delivered ALL of it over the course of 13 hours. We started at 9:00 and returned to the hotel at 10:30. A... More

Our tour was totally enjoyable, informative, and one of the best we've taken. Val knows all of the history, the culture, the stories and how to get the absolute most done in a day that doesn't leave you breathless as she is so skilled at planning and executing. We saw so much and never waited in a line Tickets were... More

Since we were going to have a couple free days in Dubai - we started to review all of the "what to do in Dubai" sites prior to our trip. One thing we wanted to do was a desert safari one of the days/nights and the other was to maximize a day with a tour of the "must-sees". After researching... More

We had a 19 hour layover in Dubai, Val picked us up as arranged, spent the day showing us highlights of Dubai and explaining a lot of interesting facts. We really enjoyed our tour and would recommend her as a tour guide who is knowledgeable about the area and flexible if you need to be.

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
