If we could give Vinod a rating of six stars we would do so! He made our day in Dubai one we will long remember. We ended our tour at the airport and rather than dropping us off he parked the car and walked us all the way to our check in counter. This was above and beyond what one might have expected. Also, he went out of his way to take us to a mosque that we wanted to see. His English is perfect.

Vinod, I am from Atlanta, GA. Vinod did an excellent tour. We asked him to change things and he agreed and met our every need. Easy to understand. He is from India with family and 2 children. His car was very nice, drove in a carefully and answered our 100 questions very well. Vinod is an excellent choice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Mitchell!! and your best support. see you again Dubai Best regards Vinod
Sandra BailessUnited States
Vinod is a FIVE STAR tour guide. Fluent English, very knowledgeable, a true professional. We had seen a few of the sites before our cruise, so Vinod rearranged and added a few things he thought we would enjoy....we did. He drove his own car (very nice and easy to access). After our tour, we felt we had experienced Dubai. If you are lucky to book Vinod, you won't be disappointed. We were a party of 4.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sandra, happy to hear all of you had wonderful time with me... thanks a lot for your positive comments. See you again in UAE. Thanks ®ards Vinod

Ravi PadmanabhanUnited States
We did the 8 hour Dubai tour with Vinod. Everything went smoothly and was as promised. Since we traveled with 2 kids, he took care to modify the tour based on all our interests. He is very knowledgeable about the history and geography of Dubai, and patiently answered all our questions. When we mentioned that we were interested in buying some spices & pistacchios, he negotiated well on our behalf. Overall, we felt safe & comfortable in Vinod's company and had a very enjoyable Dubai tour. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ravi great!!! I really happy to hear that you had wonderful tour with me, wishing you and your family a great time in India. please my regards to everyone..

Jeffrey AndersonUnited States
My friend and I booked an all day tour of Dubai with ToursByLocals, and we lucked out by getting Vinod as our guide. He has years of experience, and is pleasant, totally knowledgeable about Dubai, a nice guy and is accommodating and patient with his clients. His professionalism and experience shined through. I felt like we were being shown Dubai by a friend, since he made us feel totally at home. I highly recommend ToursByLocals when visiting Dubai, and I suggest that you ask for Vinod.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeffrey thanks for choosing as your guide,and your valuable comment, its giving me a positive energy...always.I hope we will see again in Dubai...
Marcie EwingUnited States
Our second day with Vinod was just as great as the first. He said we could see all of Dubai in two days. I think it was a perfect amount of time. Another day would have been too long. He made a suggestion we take the monorail to Oalm Island and have driver take us back. Wonderful suggestion. It's the small things like this that makes it worth the money and time to hire a private guide. Highly recommend him. Very professional and one of the best guides we've had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marcie, Thanks a lot...I had a wonderful time with you and your family too.
Marcie EwingUnited States
Vinod was a great guide. He showed up on time. Can was clean with safe driver. We had a complete full day tour of old Dubai. He was easy to understand, thorough and changed course anytime he sensed we needed more time. His flexability was much appreciated for our group of 9. I highly recommend his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marcie, thank you very much for your great comment..I hope you will definitely choose me again as your guide in UAE
