Vinod was at the ship gates as we walked out the terminal. His knowledge of Dubai from a tourist level was most refreshing. It is a big city and we covered many areas and discussed a few personal stories as well. Air conditioned van with heaps of leg room is a plus in the heat. We selected minimal temples, mosques etc., and he showed us much of the old and new attractions. A good negotiator on prices of gifts. Loved it.

In short, one of the best tour guides I have ever met. Met at the port with a personalized sign. Transportation just steps outside. He took us to every spot we wanted to see in Dubai, and knew the answer to every question. His knowledge of Dubai is amazing. He took us to spots we would never find by ourselves, and structured the tour exactly as we had requested. His help at the souk is what every traveler needs, and I was extremely impressed.

Vinod was an excellent guide. He arrived at the airport to pick us up early because the flight arrived early. It was easy to find Vinod at the airport and he delivered us back to the airport promptly so that we could catch our flight. Vinod provided a wonderful adventure in Dubai. Vinod was knowledgable and really made our boys interested in the sights of Dubai. He was also flexible giving us time to eat and take a break. We could not thank him enough for making our 10 hour layover in Dubai awesome!

Merdene HessUnited States
Vinod was a LIFESAVER for us, he deserves 10 stars. As it turned out, I had appendicitis and went to the hospital that day, so he gave us a tour on the 8th when I was able to get around. The tour was EXCELLENT - we couldn't have survived so easily in Dubai without Vinod by our side. He met us in the AM when I had to go to the hospital, even though the ship had arranged for our transit to the hospital.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Merdene, I was so sad once you are admitted in the hospital, But God gives me a chance to show you Dubai, that s made me really happy, Thanks for your great comment!!! What I done its all part of my job. If I am getting a chance to help someone , I am really happy to do that. Thanks once again ... Best regards Vinod

Miryam Prosper-BlissettUnited States
Vinod was absolutely wonderful. He was punctual, knowledgeable, patient with my group of 9 people. We had fun talking with him about numerous subjects. His patience and ability to efficiently navigate a group of people is phenomenal. He kept us moving when we were lingering too much; he encouraged us to take the water taxi which was such a treat in the middle of a tight schedule. He was incredibly helpful and kind. I would greatly recommend him as a guide . He does need a mike to project his voice howeve
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Miryam I am very happy you all had a good time with me.Hope to see you all in UAE again.

Ram ManoharUnited States
We were met at the airport on time. The tour guide was very courteous and helpful. He spoke English fluently and was very knowledgeable about the local area. Since this was a private tour for just the four of us tour guide was extremely flexible.He also provided historical information about Dubai and provided anecdotes about the development of Dubai, including before and after photographs of Dubai. He left us with a smile on our faces upon return to the airport. We recommend him to anyone visiting Dubai.
