A Recent Review of this tour

We did the old and new Dubai tour. Sunil was extremely accommodating and flexible with the tour. We modified it a bit to go to the skydeck on Burj and a bit less time in mall. Sunil has very broad and deep knowledge regarding Dubai and beyond. We learned a great deal in a short period of time. We never felt rushed and he always made us feel that we were most important. Outstanding guide and extremely informative. We are so glad we selected Sunil and Tours by Locals vs. a larger tour group.
