My name is Hoda. I am a fully licensed tour guide working in the UAE (Dubai / Abu Dhabi). I love meeting new people from all walks of life, sharing and exchanging culture, talking about history and future, blending with local way of life and following their daily routine. Sharing my knowledge with stories and facts, I love taking guests to an uncharted area which is often missed out in the typical guidebook. I have been a tour guide for nearly 14 years and guiding is not just a job. To me its the greatest passion! Based on Availability me or any of my Collages who have some excellent reviews might be running your experience the day before your tour i will send you a message to confirm who will be running your experience.
