I love traveling to different places around the UAE. I believe in creating tours that are interesting and deliver the best in terms of exotic views and unique experiences. I want all tourists to enjoy each tour with the excitement that I got while traveling to these places. When I first started my career in technology I realized the lack of tourist information about UAE online. It was then that I decided to explore different places in the UAE and move with the people of UAE so I can give tourists the first hand experience. My passion for exploring places and dedication to my work means that I create information with real life experiences and design tours that unique, exciting and interesting.
