Based on fantastic reviews by TripAdvisor fans I decided to contact Val to request information about a two day tour for Dubai and Abu Dhabi on October 24/25 after a cruise. Within a few hours she replied with a potential itinerary. I wasn't keen about a few of her choices, but I provided her with more details about us and... More

We did a half day tour of Old Dubai, Val really knows Dubai and gave us a good understanding of the life and history of Dubai while seeing the sights. She was a charming guide who couldn't do more for us. She also organised tickets for the Burg Khalifa for the end of our tour and liased with the Dessert... More

Had a full day tour with Val, a perfect one at that. She was right on time to pick us up and we began our "Old Dubai and New Dubai experience" with one of the greatest guides I've ever had.

My elderly father and I had a 1-day stopover in Dubai and Val showed us as much as we could take while she kept in mind his difficulties with too much walking. We really enjoyed her energy and enthusiasm, and we were impressed by her knowledge of the area. She's fun and friendly, and we highly recommend her to anyone... More

I was sightseeing solo so scheduled a full day Dubai tour with Val a few weeks before my departure. As my trip approached I decided I'd also like to tour Abu Dhabi but unfortunately Val was already booked for the day I needed. She most graciously offered to find me another guide - Ines - who was wonderful also! I... More

Val was absolutely wonderful, my husband and I can't speak highly enough about the past and modern day tour. We learned so much, viewed all the major sites and attractions. We never felt pressured into buying anything walking through the souks, which is nice because I have been on other tours like that. Lunch was wonderful on the Dubai creek... More

My business associate and I only had a half day to see the city and I actually booked the wrong day. When I called Val she had just finished another tour and just said no problem and came to get us, modified our schedule and spent the afternoon and early evening seeing the city. She is very knowledgeable and fun... More

I was on the Sea Princess world cruise and was in Dubai for one day, leaving late in the evening. I organised an 8 hour tour with Val for 12 people and cannot recommend her highly enough. Her tours are flexible and the cost was almost half what we would have paid if we went on a ships tour. It... More

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
