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.
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 Driver and 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 2018 to April 2019 season.
A Recent Review of this guide
We had a very interesting tour to the camel races;unique experience. We even could drive with one of the camera trucks folloing the 8km race. Barti clearly had good contacts there. And he is a very pleasant host. Highly recommended.

I am a certified tour guide by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing in Dubai and Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority in Abu Dhabi. Many of my clients are referred by others who have travelled with me.I work hard to get to know each and every client and help design an itinerary that will be unforgettable with memories that last long after photographs have faded. I have been chosen over and over again as one of the best tour guide in the country.
My English is easily understandable to both native speakers or to non native speakers and 98% of my Private tours are conducted in English.
