Barti R.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Hello All! My name is Barti and Please join me along with the fortunate few who have experienced an authentic Dubai and UAE journey free from mass tourism.

For over 24 years, I have seen Dubai change from a simple town into a mega city and one of the world's most popular tourism destinations. My private tours are customer focussed with a chauffer driven new car and I show my clients the most interesting places of Dubai and the Emirates of UAE and also places that are not in the regular tourist map, beyond any guide book will show you. My Private tours are not just about showing popular tourist places, but providing unbiased, accurate and interesting information besides sharing my indepth local knowledge.
I can design customised tours whether for one person or for a group for every budget to every fascinating destination in Dubai and UAE, from Dubai to Abu Dhabi and other five Emirates. My customised tour program include private tour guide(who is me), Air-conditioned transportation with driver, bottled water, inclusive of admission expenses, either for one person or for a group. My past clients include Pleasure/Business travelers, Children, Prime Ministers, Royalty, Nobel Laureates, Cruise Passengers, Special needs Passengers, Students, Regular Tourists and we treat everyone Special. By the way, I take good photographs too and have some sense of humour.
My several thousand trips in Dubai and the UAE and the local knowledge what I have gained over these 24 years of living in Dubai and the UAE and speaking to Experts and long term Citizens of UAE, I have been able to put together an exceptional program awaiting You.

PS: If any tours are shown unavailable(red) in the availability calender, please check with me by sending me a mail since web availability gets updated and tours may be still be available on days showing red in the availability calendar.

Why Me?
a) I only use New cars and use a safe and experienced driver during my tours and hence me as your Private Tour Guide can 100% focus on my Clients (instead of road directions and traffic) your questions and your needs and the Tour itinerary. The Comfort and Safety of my Clients are extremely important to me. My prices for my Private tours are reasonable for the quality I provide and a bit higher than Guides who drive the car and do guiding at the same time. My Private tours have SEPARATE DRIVER and SEPARATE GUIDE(me) in our Tours.
b) My Private tours are NOT about just showing places giving flat, regular information. My Private tours are all about making your visit to Dubai and UAE an unforgettable experience by providing unbiased, accurate and interesting information sharing my local knowledge beyond any guide book will show you.
c) If you are interested in special weekend custom tours like watching CAMEL Racing in Dubai or HORSE Racing they can be organised based on schedule of events during October 2017 to April 2018 season.

A Recent Review of this guide

Barti and our driver took us out into the desert on a beautiful Dubai morning. We enjoyed the ride up, over, and around huge sand dunes, but also the many interesting facts we learned about how people lived in the desert in the past and how they live and utilize the desert today. We also stopped at a camel racing track and saw some racing camels that were having their morning training sessions. Barti was quite knowledgeable about the camel racing culture in Dubai, another interesting facet of the tour.
