Travel planning made easy with our Destination Experts around the world

Why Cmycities?

Who knows a city better than the people who live there? Being able to ask a friend for advice when planning a trip is easier and much more fun than searching the internet by yourself. That personal touch, insider information, and trust is what makes the difference.

 

Cmycities’ international network of Destination Experts will introduce you to their city and help tailor your trip so that your time there is unique, and more importantly, unique to you. We propose one-to-one video consultations and ongoing contact during your preparation and your stay. This is how it gets personal.

Vivienne, votre Correspondante

Vivienne est née et a grandi à Hong Kong : elle vit toujours dans cette ville internationale et bouillonnante. Elle a été témoin de la mutation de la ville coloniale en ville au statut spécial, administrée comme province chinoise. Vivienne a passé quelques mois en France : elle connaît bien la culture française et toutes ses différences avec la culture hong-kongaise.
Elle a travaillé dans l’industrie hôtelière et propose aujourd’hui des parcours à pieds dans Hong Kong, dont elle connaît chaque quartier : aussi bien les quartiers « touristiques », les incontournables, que les endroits typiques et préférés des locaux.
Vivienne est aussi bien connectée aux groupes d’expatriés, notamment français, qu’aux communautés locales, ce qui vous garantit une immersion rapide et facile dans la ville.

Vivienne parle français, anglais, cantonais et mandarin.

After some experience in the hotel industry, she now offers walking tours in Hong Kong: from the inevitable touristic places to the most typical and local-favorite spots. Thanks to Vivienne’s expertise and to her connections with both expat groups and local communities, Vivienne will help you upgrade your experience to new levels!

Violaine, votre Correspondante

Oman – considéré comme La Perle d’Arabie – a tout pour vous surprendre. Oman regorge de richesses culturelles, d’une histoire passionnante et de paysages à couper le souffle. Le dépaysement est assuré alors que vous parcourez les fjords bleus de Musandam, les villes blanches le long de la côte, les oueds et massifs montagneux, les dunes de sables rouge et doré dans l’arrière-pays, les palmeraies verdoyantes sujettes à la mousson sans mentionner les wadis où il fait bon de se rafraichir.
Je suis belge francophone, une maman comblée avec 3 enfants et passionnée par le Sultanat d’Oman. J’habite dans la région depuis 5 ans et je serais ravie de partager mes coups de cœurs et petites adresses pour que votre voyage soit magique !

Il y a tout à fait moyen de combiner un itinéraire avec Cmycities Dubaï-Abu Dhabi et Cmycities Oman pour vous concocter un itinéraire sur mesure car nous travaillons en collaboration.

Violaine parle français et anglais.

Violaine, your Destination Expert

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.
I am Belgian and a happy mother of 3 children. I’ve lived in the region for almost 5 years, where I totally feel at home. As your destination expert, I am passionate about Oman, its treks in the mountains, its lush green oasis and wadis, the cruises on a dhow in the Musandam fjords. Let me guide you through Oman to 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.

Client Testimonials

Claire from London

November 2017

« As someone who had never been to Paris before, faced with the possibility of one weekend away and so much to do and see in such a small amount of time, I had no idea of where to start. Cmycities were a fantastic help in easing much of that pressure. Larissa was able to make many excellent suggestions based on location and her experience of the local amenities. She even booked our meals at various restaurants to help ease the pressure further. My family and I had a truly fantastic time. Paris is a beautiful city and I was able to experience that to its fullest as a result of the knowledge and service offered by Cmycities. Many thanks Larissa. Until the next time. »

Susan from Nuneaton

October 2017

« I used Cmycities to help me organize a weekend for four people to celebrate a friend’s 50th birthday, and she had never been to Paris. Cmycities was with me every step of the way over months of planning. Everyone had a great time and had nothing but praise for the hotel, location we stayed in, hand-picked restaurants, and the sight-seeing activities chosen. My friend has now fallen in love with Paris and we all want to go back to the beautiful city of light. »

Marie from Cape Town

October 2017

« Going to Dubai with Cmycities was a great experience! When exposing some of my second thoughts regarding the destination (I was 6 months pregnant then) on our initial call, Renda gave me so much valuable insight she convinced me it was a good idea. She gave me some tips on how to have an amazing experience in the desert, and how to get out of the city to discover Oman. This trip would not have been the same without her! She really took good care of us and shared her best addresses for spa, shopping and restaurants… A real point of view as a local, was crucial. She gave me the opportunity to ask her a lot of questions about culture too, and not as boring or commercial as it could have been if I had organized this short vacation with a travel agent. And I made a new friend! »
