Date: May 23/17

We enjoyed a wonderful two days with Barti touring Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Out time was well appointed among so much to see. Professional, courteous, extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the history and evolution of the area. He was very sensitive to our needs and interests and tailored our time together to maximize our experience. We especially enjoyed his recommendations of restaurants! Fluent in English and tremendous guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Arthur, It was indeed a pleasure meeting you both and being your guide in the UAE. I am glad I was able to share my local knowledge and learn from you as well. Thank you for your kind words and generosity. Regards Barti

Barti and Ali (driver) were prompt, friendly, professional and very informative. We had a delightful day with them, learning about Dubai and its culture. They were receptive to our wishes and adapted the tour as we spent longer in certain areas. We would not hesitate recommending this tour and especially Barti to anyone visiting the UAE (he is also registered in Abu Dhabi)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, I am glad that you all reached safely in Canada. It was a pleasure meeting you both and thank you for your kind words. Thank you for choosing me as your tour guide and hope we can see you all once again. Regards Barti

We arrived in a dust storm so it was difficult to see anything. Barti tried so hard to make the best of the situation. He was very concerned with us enjoying our time. He is a great guide, full of knowledge of Dubai. We had a great time and still saw so much during our tour. He was punctual and continued to ensure our well being throughout the tour. Even the abra ride was a blast. I would highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brenda, Thank you for your kind words. It was wonderful meeting you both in the middle of Dust storm in Dubai and you both were great sport. Thank you for choosing me as your guide. Kind Regards Barti

The guide Mr. Barti was very knowledgeable, eloquent, and helpful, and his English was immaculate, making the trip a memorable one. He answered any queries with concise in-depth knowledge of the sites. The Driver Mr. Ali was also a very good and safe driver. They also enquired as to whether you had any particular place of interest so that they could customize the trip. I would recommend them any time.

Barti was absolutely awesome! Barti was totally responsive and anticpated every need. We especially enjoyed all of the information he gave about the area, the history and culture. If we were on our own, we never could have seen so many terrific things in one day. Going the private guide route was perfect.

Hi there, Would like to say a big thank you to Barti and his driver, very professional, helpful and considerate! Just to name a few highlights from many, allowed us to use his phone to call our daughter in Australia, prompt and very knowledgeable with his surroundings, very helpful having a local with you when shopping and on unfamiliar territory. Dubai was beautiful & immaculate! The bonus was Barti could walk us through everywhere as he had a driver to look after the car & parking.

We decided to come back to Dubai after visiting 5 years ago. Not only was there 5 years of development to catch up on, we also felt that we did not fully explore Dubai old and new on our previous visit. Barti his driver were brilliant, listening and responding to our requests as well as providing unforgettable experiences as only a local can. His historical knowledge is excellent and we could speak on any subject thanks to his calm and approachable manner. Highly recommended, thanks Barti you're 5 star.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stuart, I really enjoyed meeting you and your family and it was a pleasure being your guide. Thank you for choosing me. Regards Barti

We had the most memorable time on this trip. Barti is extremely knowledgable on Dubai history and conducts his tours with professionalism and courtesy. We would most certainly recommend Barti as a tour guide to our friends if visiting Dubai and would choose Barti as our guide on further visits to Dubai. We would also like to thank Barti for his guidance in the gold souk with shopping and the excellent lunch recommendation. Many thanks also to the driver for his efficiency. June, Terry and Ian. UK

We were looked after very well by Barti and mohan. Barti was well informed about Dubai and could share a lot of information with us. They were very accommodating as we spent more time at a few places. Their recommendation about the restaurant to have lunch was also excellent. The experience of personalised tour was great and value for money for a family of four.

Barti was a fantastic guide. His obvious love of the city of Dubai is matched by his extensive knowledge and his willingness to share that knowledge with others. He showed us both the old and new areas including the Souks. We had great fun and would certainly recommend him to anyone. His English was excellent. Thank you Barti. Chris & Andy (South Australia)

Barti was a terrific guide for our day in Dubai. He customized our tour to include a few sights we wanted to include, while being sure to include major highlights of this wonderful city. We asked for a "local" lunch, which was great. He also made the reservations for us at the Burj Khalifa in advance, saving much time and assuring our view. His demeanor and presentation were one of the best we've experienced. I don't hesitate to recommend him. He made our day one to remember.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joseph, It was nice meeting you all and I really enjoyed being your guide. Thank you for your generosity and your courtesy. Regards Barti
