It’s never possible to get your own pair of wings (who knows if technology will make that possible too in the future) but you can definitely learn how to fly an aircraft. Travelling in planes is definitely fun, but have you been curious to know what happens behind the scenes in the cockpit. What if we tell you there’s a way to find out?

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.
