UAE FROM A DIFFERENT
POINT OF VIEW
MEET NATHALIE VAN DE VREDE
PASSIONATE BY THE U.A.E.
Our mission: To help you discover the emirates as they really are: rich in traditions, contrasts and lessons.
An expatriate for 23 years now, I arrived in the United Arab Emirates in 2010, 13 years ago. With a degree in sociology, my academic background and my curiosity have enabled me to approach my expatriations in a unique way, blending ethnological, sociological and geo-political influences.
Fascinated by the United Arab Emirates from day one, I wanted to pass on its history, often far from preconceived ideas, which is how I became a guide in June 2011. In 2017 I decided to embark on the adventure of the travel agency, receptive to be able to both guide and offer my customers personalised trips.
I am convinced that we are all unique, and while the essentials will be revealed to you, we work to find that memory that will make your trip an unforgettable experience.
We are fortunate to see a nation growing up before our very eyes, where the watchwords are vision, ambition, innovation, tolerance and education to project ourselves into the future. This country has turned my life upside down, and I like to share the emotions I feel in the many contrasts that characterise its matrix.
I have visited and guide in all the emirates. I have mastered to perfection all the products I offer. I invite you to let the emirates surprise you, in complete immersive experiences that will take you on a journey that will not leave you indifferent.
I have also worked personally with each of our guides to train them and support them in their research, so as to offer rich and interesting tours.
Let Dubai and the United Arab Emirates charm you with their measured excess.
MEET MARC ANTOINE ABADIE alias MARCO
In Dubai for 20 years, I have always been passionate about the outdoors.
Coming from the luxury sector, where I worked for more than 20 years, in 2013 I chose to devote myself to my passions: the desert, the underwater world and knife sharpening.
First French certified desert driver by the DTCM and RTA, PADI/RAID diving instructor at sea or Certified Guide Instructor at Deep Dive Dubai, I can also put on my captain's cap and show you the Dubai skyline from the Gulf aboard a small boat. A true Swiss army knife, I accompany you in unique and unforgettable experiences.
I like to tell the stories of these great spaces, between survival and traditions. I also like to say that together we discover the 2.0 version of the Emirates. Between camel races and the famous robot-jockeys, a dive in Deep Dive Dubai (the deepest swimming pool in the world), a crossing of the country's deserts in a private convoy and everything related to the outdoors, I will be happy to share my enthusiasm towards this fantastic country that has so much more to offer than "the obvious".
I arrived in the United Arab Emirates 3 years ago and I work with Nathalie and Marco to prepare your stays.
In this diverse and varied city, it is not always easy to make choices. Curious and organised, I accompany you to create a trip in your image.
Most of the activities and restaurants that we offer have been tested by our team or our guides.
Travelling, it leaves you speechless,
then turns you into a storyteller.
WHAT CLIENTS SAY
Thanks to the professionalism of Apolline and Nathalie, we had a unique experience combining cultural visits to the Louvres museum, presidential palace and Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi, museum of the future in Dubai and the authenticity/conviviality of a typical meal in the middle of the desert. Thank you again for these unforgettable moments.
