Lucie, your Destination Expert

Destination Expert Lucie grew up between Latin America and France, studied architecture in Paris and lived in Japan. But it’s San Francisco that she has been calling home for the past few years. Architectural gem, tech hub and sanctuary of the hippie movement, San Francisco is a very international city. Which is reflected on the wide variety and quality of its restaurants. Are any other reasons to visit San Francisco really needed?! The city is also a great starting point for a roadtrip in California. Lucie loves finding hidden gems around the city and sharing them, so don’t wait any longer, get in touch!

Lucie speaks French, Spanish, English, Italian and some Japanese.

Violaine, your Destination Expert

There are two faces to Dubai, the “over the top”, extravagant, state-of-the-art architecture with its modern sky-scrapers, shopping malls and artificial islands of The World and the more charming and authentic side with its traditional housings, souks where you think you’d stepped into a different era and thats the best part!
I live in the modern Dubai but enjoy taking a stroll in the old Dubai, by the Creek to watch all the abras (wooden fishing boats) speeding across the Creek to reach Deira and its hidden treasures of the past.

I am Belgian and a happy mother of 3 children. I have lived in the region for almost 5 years, where I totally feel at home. As your destination expert across the region, I am not only fascinated by Dubai and its neighbouring Emirates, of which Abu Dhabi and others, but I am also passionate about Oman, the country next door, only 4 hours away from Dubai.
Abu Dhabi is also definitely worth the trip. It’s an hour’s drive from Dubai and hosts all the cultural events and museums – such as the Louvre Abu Dhabi – and is also considered as the cradle of the Emirati civilisation.

Oman is the pearl of Arabia! Oman is as surprising as unfamiliar. It’s magic – as you travel and explore the wonders of its landscape – formed by deserts, mountains, oasis and virgin beaches with pristine blue waters, you will realize why this country is known as the pearl of Arabia. It simply has so much to offer and one thing that really stands out is the kindness and closeness of its people and the authenticity of their culture.

So why not make a round trip Dubai – Abu Dhabi (and /or other Emirates) – Oman? I can guide you through the region and make your experience a fantastic one!

And don’t forget that you can also ask to have an itinerary planned with both Cmycities Oman and Cmycities Dubai – Abu Dhabi as we do collaborate to offer you services across both locations.

Violaine speaks English and French.

Phoebe, your Destination Expert

After four years of expatriation in Jakarta – Indonesia, I now live in Hanoi with my family.
This first experience abroad gave me the love of traveling and the desire to discover Southeast Asia more.
Hanoi is a city with crazy charm: a mix between small streets, street-food restaurants, pagodas, the vibrant «Old Quarter» and elegant wide Haussmanian avenues lined with trees and Belle Époque villas as well as its Opera built on the model of the Garnier Palace, its St-Joseph Cathedral and the Hoan Kiem lake.
The capital of Vietnam is a promise of a unique stay, combining tradition, culture, colonial heritage, exoticism and modernity.
The choice of things to do in the rest of the country is vast. Why not spend a night in Halong Bay, go trekking in the north through the mountains of Sapa, visit the Imperial City in Hué, stroll through the alleys of Hoi An, discover the Mekong Delta or simply lay back at the beach!
It is also a paradise for food lovers with its incredible gastronomy, a cuisine full of freshness that will undoubtedly be one of the daily highlights of your trip!
Vietnam is a beautiful and authentic country and I would be happy to help you organize your stay!

Phoebe speaks French, English and a little Bahasa (Indonesian)

Client Testimonials

Isabelle

Novembre 2020, Inde

« Merci Julie !

* Qui m’a permis de découvrir une partie du Rajasthan au travers d’un parcours inattendu. Un contact simple et agréable avec Julie qui comprend les attentes et communique les bonnes informations.

* Je retiens en émotions fortes: la découverte du Taj Mahal par le jardin situé sur l’autre rive de la rivière en fin de journée et le lendemain la découverte du monument au petit matin. Entre la veille et la visite: sons, couleurs, impressions toutes différentes et magiques!

* Par ces temps compliqués, j’ai apprécié l’accueil dans la guest house d’Agra et au Cottage de Samode qui parviennent à faire oublier que vous êtes seuls puisqu’ils conservent un sens de l’accueil agréable.

Au plaisir ! »

« Julie chez Cmycities nous a aidés à organiser notre voyage en Polynésie . Tout d’abord, très en amont, nous avons pu échanger sur le circuit, les îles à voir, sur la durée des étapes . Ensuite nous sommes rentrés dans le détail avec des conseils précis et toujours pertinents sur les lieux d’hébergement, les activités etc. La crise sanitaire est passée par là et échanger avec Julie , sur place, nous a rassurés sur le voyage et nous a permis de remodeler notre parcours. Julie nous a ainsi donné l’idée d’une croisière qui a été un des moments forts du séjour .Sur place, les échanges réguliers nous donnaient l’impression de parler à une amie installée sur place, qui nous a permis de sortir des sentiers battus . Et c’est vraiment cela que nous retenons de cmycities, les conseils d’une amie locale toujours disponible et toujours à l’écoute . Un immense merci, sans Julie notre voyage n’aurait pas été le même. »

« Je tenais à remercier Violaine pour l’organisation de ce magnifique voyage. 2 semaines formidables entre Oman et Dubai. La formule Cmycities permet d’avoir un voyage sur mesure tout en laissant à chacun le choix de l’adapter- surtout avec 2 enfants de 4 ans et 7 ans. Nous avons adoré l’itinéraire off-road, le désert et la découverte des villages anciens. Encore merci ! »
