Sunil took my 11 year old son on a fantastic tour of Dubai's architecture. My son came back bubbling with excitement. Sunil not only showed all the spectacular sights but also did so in a fun filled way, teaching him in the process how to use filters for his photographs! A big thanks to Sunil for making sure my son had the time of his life!

This was a great way to see all the fascinating modern architecture of Dubai. My guide was also great about explaining the local culture and answering questions about life in the city for both locals and expats. Highly recommend!

Sunil has provided us with a beautiful tour of the very hot Dubai. Fully customized, tailored to our wishes and exactly what we intended. He knows Dubai well and can tell about it. In half a day, we got a good impression of the city and our visit to Dubai Mall and Burj Kalifa made our trip complete. We would like to recommend Sunil.

We enjoyed seeing the key sights in Dubai with Sunil. He was very informative and provided interesting information on the culture and customs of the Emirate people. He was very patient and we were not rushed. As an Architectural tour it was more of an overview of the main buildings however limited in depth of technical information. Nevertheless Sunil provided a great introduction to the city of of Dubai and would recommend him to others.

I made an impulsive decision to try Tours by locals while I was in Dubai. I'm so happy that I did! I was very fortunate to have Sunil as my guide for the day. He was so informative, nice and patient with me and my parents. I highly recommend going on a tour with him. I will use him again next time I go to Dubai.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tabassum, Thanks for such an admirable message. Looking forward to see you again.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We're so pleased you decided to give us a try, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Dubai (or anywhere else you travel!)

1st - if you are going to Dubai contact Sunil. He is an immense help - hotels, logistics, transportation, what to avoid, local restaurants, when to go where, etc. I booked his architecture tour and he REALLY knows the buildings, best vantage points, and even cameras. Book him-1st day of your visit. He has a spectacular vehicle and is extremely personable, life-long resident, fine English, and 1st class. I felt very comfortable in his city after my time with him. Like the Burj Al-Arab - 7 stars not 5.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, Thanks for your sensational message for me. I am so delighted to have you here.. Till next time

We have done the architectural tour with Sunil. As he picked us up at the hotel we told him what we would like to see and he adjusted the tour. He has a book in his car and explained the history by. I think that was great because it was much easier to understand the things from the past that way. We had a coffee and heard a lot of everyday life in Dubai. I had a lot of questions and he was great in answering them. Sunil is very easy to understand and we were very pleased that we had him as our guide. 5*

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dubravko, It is my pleasure to have you here. Thanks a lot for your charming words for me.. Wish to see you back!
