We had an amazing time with Shah. He showed us so much of Dubai in such a short time, and even rearranged the tour to add extra stops for us. He was extremely knowledgeable about historical and current Dubai. A fabulous experience all round, and I'd recommend Shah to anyone looking for a guide in Dubai.

Shah was an excellent guide and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day. Shah's knowledge of Dubai was exceptional and added to all the sites we visited. As an added bonus he took great photos of us at all the sites. No need for a selfie stick. Comfortable ride in his land cruiser. I would highly recommend his services to anyone wanting a thorough glimpse into the wonders of Dubai.

Shah really brought the city of Dubai alive alive to me through its' people, history and culture. Shah knew the city and where to go, the shortcuts and where to stay longer. He is extremely smart and sharp and deeply understands the nuances of what a tourist wants to see and behold in Dubai. The city of Dubai is a magical place and Shah is the genie that can bring it life.

Shah was our tour guide in Dubai and he was FANTASTIC! He is very knowledgeable and helpful in every way. In addition, he is a great photographer! In such a short period of time, he could identify the persons best angle so that the photos turned out amazing! He is very considerate, thoughtful and friendly. When we visited the souk, he shared us with local candies. He is well liked among people in the souk! I highly recommend Shah whenever you visit Dubai!

Mr. Shah was our guide in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai and he worked hard in both cities to ensure that we saw the essential sights as well as areas that tourists may not find on their own. He's personable, informed and articulate and we enjoyed his company. We learned a great deal about the Emirates in general and Dubai in particular. He's a talented photographer so helped us with our photos, which will be far superior thanks to his input. We would highly recommend him.

Shah took my parents out on his Legendary Expedition tour and they had an amazing time. The tour was informative and Shah was incredibly knowledgeable both of Dubai and the region. What they liked best was being able to chat with him and find out what his life in Dubai was like and he opened up to them with no reservations. He took great care of them (my parents are in their 70s) and was very solicitous through the tour. Thank you Shah, for an amazing experience!

Shah was wonderful. We only had a 4 hour layover in Dubais and he made the most of every minute. He was there at exactly the appointed time and had us back to the airport right on time as well. He was so well informed about Dubais and so proud. We went to all of the famous places and he would take our picture for us. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Shah. I hope we can go back for a longer stay sometime. Barbara

Absolutely the best of the best. Shah knows his stuff and goes out of his way to make the experience special for you. We toured the more common sites (which were spectacular) but he also asked me if there were things I wanted to see that was not on the tour. Of course I wanted to all the exotic cars Dubai is known for. He was more than happy to do so. It was fantastic. Could not rate him higher and recommend to anyone with at least a 6 hour layover and wants to get the most out of their time in Dubai.

Not only does he know more than a volume of history books, he makes the trip feel like you're out for a joyride with an old friend. Few tour guides master the rare art of being able to break down complex geopolitics, while also being able to tell you about the nightlife and hidden underbelly of the UAE. Be sure to ask him, in Nepali, how an Emirati who claims to be Mexican got a Pakistani passport when you take this tour that will make you feel like you've been living in the city for years.

He was flexible with timings and our itinerary. He was very knowledgable and gave us lot of information about everything related to Dubai and Abu Dhabi. In addition, he takes great pictures and also knows local vendors if you are interested in buying souvenirs and such. Our family of four really enjoyed the tours.

At one point when travelers fatigue set in, we enjoyed a refreshing local lemon/mint drink in the old city to perk us up. His knowledge and enthusiasm gave us a great experience for our limited time.

For those who are not sure what to do in Dubai and have limited time, the private tour will certainly help you. They have extended an itinerary of where and what you can do. Also it will be very helpful to get to know the city as a foreigner and you will definitely fall in love with Dubai! If you have any specific place or anything you want to do, you could talk or write to them and they will gladly assists you.
