Waarish was an amazing tour guide who went above and beyond to provide a breakdown of Male' and the Maldives' history, culture, politics, religion and geography. It was great to get a local's perspective of the island and Waarish was amazingly knowledgeable on a broad range of topics from astronomy to marine biology. We really enjoyed his tour and experienced many local gems such as the local fish markets and important sites such as the President's residence. His navigational expertise, kindness in escorting us back to the airport and willingness and knowledge to answer all our questions was much appreciated. Waarish was also very quick to respond to any communication via Whatsapp. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you for a great day!
Fantastic Tour with great info from a local!

Irufaan was a terrific tour guide! We saw all the special spots and even a few only a local would know. We asked heaps of questions about Maldivian culture and it was excellent to hear from a local. The tour was well balanced and I highly recommend it!
Eye opening

We got very lucky with our guide Hikal aka Beast! He’s a really interesting young man that took us from the airport to the city as we had some time to kill in Malé. The city itself is intense with heavy traffic and few road laws, it’s got some really beautiful areas though and you can tell the Maldivians are fiercely proud of their identity and country. It’s worth a visit but if you haven’t been to a densely populated Asian city before (I hadn’t) be prepared for a culture shock. I would recommend asking for Beast (that’s how everyone knows him) specifically although he doesn’t do many tours as he’s been promoted. He’s not your typical tour guide and he’ll tell you everything about himself and his family and show you a few hidden gems along the way. You can book at the airport it was desk 49 when we did it. Enjoy
Excellent customer service.

We had this tour booked to fill in time between leaving our resort and flying out of Male. Unfortunately, our flight from our resort was two hours late. When it eventually landed, however, our guide was waiting, but advised that many of the attractions were now closed and it would not be worthwhile doing the tour. He also advised that we would receive a full refund, which we did.

Excellent customer service!
Our guide Mohammed was...

Our guide Mohammed was very knowledgable and experienced tour guide. The tour opened up my eyes on what this country is about. Its fascinating how far all the things came together for the past 20 years or so and its so much more to come.
