I found Val on line as my travel agent was dealing with personal problems at the time. I e-mailed her to ask how we would recognize her when she picked us up at the JW Marriott Marquis. She replied that she would be wearing something orange and be driving a burgandy Kia Carnival. Sure enough, right on time at 9AM,... More

Though there are a variety of options for seeing Dubai, we're very happy we splurged on getting a private tour with Val. It's especially a good idea if you have limited time. We didn't have to waste time getting to/from hop-on, hop-off locations, or figuring out how to navigate through a new city. (Dubai is far more spread out than... More

For the second time we did a 24 hr layover in Dubai on our way home from South Africa and for the second time we toured with Val; last year 2 couples, this year 3 couples. Once again we had a fantastic day walking old Dubai, the souks, Creekside area etc., topped off by a visit to the top of... More

Fabulous tour & Val was knowledgeable & friendly. We really enjoyed her company and the tour was excellent. I would certainly recommend this tour guide and think it's great value for money. Will be using her again when I'm next in Dubai.

What a wonderful day we had this past week with Val in Dubai! She guided us on the full day (Old and New City) tour and it was excellent. Her professionalism, knowledge and vibrant personality had the city come alive for us. No stone was left unturned as we visited all the major city landmarks. From the top of the... More

I just finished a half day tour of Old Dubai with Val and had not only an excellent experience but a really fun day. Val is like spending time with an old friend you have not seen in years and now lives in Dubai. She is full of knowledge and knows everything you need to know about navigating the old... More

Val is an excellent tour guide. She picked us up at the shipyard on time and arranged the day due to the weather. Val gave us good incite to the area, people and culture. She took us around to see the architecture of the buildings and found amazing views for us to take photos. Then we went on a mini-boat... More

My daughter read excellent reviews of Val's tours on Trip Advisor, and with a 7 hour layover in Dubai, we thought a quick look at the emirate would be fun. Val was there to meet us and gave us quick peaks at all the things we were interested in--Historical Dubai, the souks, and a "fast track" up the Burj Khalifa.... 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.
