With its outstanding and incomparable blend of antiquity with modernity, Abu Dhabi is a city of immense promise, reflected in the skyline of its business centre's skyscrapers which flank the signature Corniche and overlook the sparkling waters of the Arabian Gulf.

As a result, she enthusiastically decided that she wanted to work as a tour guide in the United Arab Emirates; she obtained her license and now accompanies groups, sharing her knowledge and love for the UAE.

Hetty will meet you at the Beach Rotana Hotel at 08.45 hours and the group leaves by minibus at 09.00 hours. You will be back at the hotel at 17.00 hours in time to join the reception.
