Barti was the most informed guide you could ask for. Very professional & polite He made several calls for us about various times and tours before we left and emailed us the information. He asked for a list of the things that we wanted to see in Dubai and planned our entire day based on those. His driver, Ali, was excellent also & very courteous. You couldn't have a better guide & driver!!!!

We found the tour was not rushed in any way and he was very knowledgeable and obliging throughout the whole tour.He made our first trip to Dubai a very pleasant experience. I would recommend Barti as a tour guide for any tours throughout that region.

First of all, we were very well informed by our tour guide during our tour. There were many things that we did within 9 days in a private tour rather than a group tour and we also did many things because of our tour guide that was so very informative of all the places and can suggest many places that we want to go if we don't like the place. Our guide was very good and has a great knowledge about the history of the place and some of the buildings that were built before. overall our tour was a excellent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Allibert, It was indeed a pleasure meeting you and your Parents who were wonderful people. This several days tour which you booked with me was first for me of a client booking for 9 days with me. I enjoyed being with you all the days and appreciate your courtesy. Thank you for choosing me as your tour guide while in UAE. Thank you and your parents for your kindness and generosity. Hope to see you all again in the future. Regards Barti

We can't say enough about Barti and Ali, they accommodated our every request, we just "had" to stop at the Harley Davidson store-without notice, and then when we were tired and requested to not go to the Souk, they offered to take us the next day but we had other plans. I will definitely book again with Barti and Ali when we come to Dubai again. Awesome customer service and listens to what his customers want to see, do and experience in Dubai. He is very attentive and has vast knowledge of Dubai.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kimberly, It was indeed a pleasure meeting you and your family. Thank you for your kind words and thank you for your Generosity. Look forward to see you all again. Regards Barti

Barti was prompt when he met us. He handled booking a desert safari tour through another company for me. After we finished that tour we met Barti who took us on a city tour. He was very knowledgeable and interesting. We told him what we were interested in and he customized the tour accordingly. The car was comfortable. He and his driver were extremely nice. We only had 4 hours in Dubai and we felt that he showed us everything we needed to see. I would recommend him highly.

Barti was an excellent guide for us over a two day period and he made our visit to Dubai very enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable about the city and was very accommodating on showing us the highlights. He is a very pleasant, intelligent man and we learned so much about the history and culture of the area from him. I can not say enough of how much we enjoyed our tour with him and would seek him out to be our guide if we were to visit Dubai again.

Barti and Ali (the driver) were really great. Barti gave me such a great perspective on all aspects of the city - the government, economy, mix of cultures and religion, and history. It would have taken me a week to see and learn as much about the city as I learned in my 5 1/2-hour tour. Note to potential buyers: unless you book with other people in your group, you will have to pay the entire price. I didn't understand that when I booked. That being said, the tour was entirely worth it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kimber, Thank you for your feedback. It was a pleasure meeting you and being your guide. Regards Barti

Barti was the absolute perfect guide for seeing Dubai. He planned a great visit for us, while still being very flexible when we wanted to spend more or less time at various stop. He was on time and extremely courteous. Most of all, Barti is incredibly knowledgeable about so many topics relating to Dubai, life here and the country's history. Finally, his SUV is immaculate and air-conditioned, a must in Dubai. We could not recommend Barti more strongly!

Barti was the most amazing tour guide we have ever experienced; and we tour as a group often. His level of expertise regarding every aspect of not only the predefined tourist spots, but also the general knowledge of the country, was nothing short of astounding! There was not one single question asked that Barti could not immediately answer with 100% accuracy. His incredible knowledge spanned the local customs, politics, infrastructure and overall culture of the country. We were so impressed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lilibeth and Jason, Thanks so much for your kind words. You all have been amazing and at times groups like you become more than just clients and the emotions left by both sides tell how much we enjoyed each others company. Regards Barti

The correct guide did not show!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Carolynn, My dear Father passed away hours before your tour on May 16th and hence I had to arrange for TBL guide Hans J as my immediate replacement and I apologize for not being able to inform you about that I was trying to arrange a flight to be with at my fathers funeral in India on May 16th. Hence in this most saddest situation for me I could not be there for guiding you. Barti

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: The issue was brought up to the guide and his guide support manager. Who together agreed that despite the unfortunate personal loss Barti had to deal with, the right thing to do in this case was to compensate the customer accordingly and so was done.

BARTI IS THE BEST!!! He and his driver picked us up for a tour of Dubai at 0515hrs at our request for dawn at the beach near Burj Al Arab. We got fabulous photos too!! We travelled the well trod routes and some not so well trod. Barti was widely knowledgeable, and easygoing to converse with. We had an amazing tour with him and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone. We found the 6 hour tour best suited our needs particularly the earlier start. Well done Barti and your driver.

Barti was a superior guide in Dubai. We booked an all day tour and it was wonderful! He showed us not only the typical tourist sites, but also personalized it at our requests to include things like the Harley Davidson dealership. The driver was excellent also. I would highly advise to book with Barti as he can convey to you his extensive knowledge of the people, culture, history and hoped for future of this Emirate. No question we posed went unanswered.
