Hello, I am Frederic.
I have been living in Dubai since 1990 and I have had the privilege to indulge in my passion of travel ever since my early 20s, when I started working in the holiday business.
I always tremendously enjoyed tailoring itineraries for my friends’ or my relatives’ holidays, listening to others’ amazing experiences, or indeed talking about my own. And now, with the backing of 37 years’ experience, I have decided to do just that for a living.
Holidays mean different things to different people. They even conjure up different dreams at different times for the same individual, don’t they?
So, what does your next dream escape feel like today? Discovering another culture? Visiting ancient monuments? Admiring awesome landscapes? Pacing a big city? Exploring new cuisines? Meeting different people? Indulging in your favourite sports? Relaxing on a tropical beach? Or maybe cruising from one of those to another?
If you would like to dream about it aloud, exchange ideas or get innovative suggestions, feel free to contact me.
I am here, first to listen to you and to understand your needs and your wishes; and then, if you so wish, to tailor a bespoke itinerary down to the last detail, to suggest the airline and the hotels that will best match your individual requirements for this particular holiday, from a week-end break to an extended vacation, taking the worries and the hassle of planning and booking away from you.
Two words of advice, if I may:
• Don’t leave it until the last minute: you risk being disappointed by a lack of availability, either on your preferred airline or in your selected property, or both.
• And don’t hesitate to contact me: a conversation is not a commitment!
Just drop me a note on [email protected] or call me on +971 50 100 8680.
I very much look forward to being of service to you and to assisting you in organising your next dream holidays.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-

Thanks to a century-old family property, I spent a large part of my holidays in close proximity to St-Tropez since my early childhood. Having just enjoyed one more sojourn there, I cannot resist sharing my thoughts and possibly debunking some myths about that world-famous French Riviera resort. The very name of Saint-Tropez often evokes a glitzy resort, a playground for the rich and famous, an overpriced heaven for mega-yachts and luxury mansions hidden away beyond guarded gates. In fact, this small coastal settlement has retained all the charm of the Provence villages, with its narrow streets, markets and gardens. Most typical of...

Frederic took the time to understand our request and wishes for our trip to Namibia. He advised us perfectly explaining why some of our wishes were unrealistic or not wise. During our first talk, Frederic asked about our budget. It has been perfectly respected. I would definitely recommend Frederic to my family and friends.

Frederic is a real professional. No booking is too large or small for him and his customer service before, during and after my trip made me feel reassured and very well looked after. I would highly recommend his services for both leisure and business requirements.

I will recommend Mr Bardin to my friends. He was quick in his answers, was able to give me some good feedback on hotels. He worked closely in consideration to my budget. I will use Frederic for my next trips.

Frederic is the ultimate example of a travel advisor. He has a real passion for his work and truly endeavours to match your requirements and your budget. Because he has travelled so much, he also thinks out of the box and surprises you with uncommon places, visits or tips you can't find in a guide book or on the internet, and that’s what you are really looking for when you want to travel differently.

Frederic Bardin is incredibly talented, has an outstanding knowledge and listens carefully to match and remember all your wishes, habits and preferences. He certainly is the best travel counsellor we've had so far. It is a real pleasure to talk to him about our trips as he has been there, gives excellent advice and does a perfect follow-up, like a Swiss watch.
