Barti Is an excellent guide and ambassador for UAE. He was very responsive to our individual interests and questions; and we learned a lot to help us understand and experience the local culture and history of the UAE and the individual emirates. Barti has a friendly, professional, and welcoming personality that made the four of us feel very comfortable during our nine hours together. Knox and diane bell

Bart is a talented and capable guide who speaks excellent English. The low rating is because Barti changed our tour at the last minute and seemed preoccupied with some form of problem all 2 1/2 days we were with him. We also had a dispute over $100 in tickets I had prepaid for 6-8 months earlier that he forgot about. I even had copies of his emails that he would not acknowledge. My advice, use Barti at your own peril and be prepared for last minute changes.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals have investigated the issues raised here and have found that it was not properly clarified who was to pay for the $100 tickets. As such ToursByLocals refunded the customer for this expense. We appreciate the feedback and have full confidence in Barti and his ability to deliver 5-Star tours going forward.
A very well informed guide, who has a lot of patience to answer all the questions, to go the extra mile and to fulfill the individual needs. It was a great day out, we learned a lot and can only recommend this tour. Thank you Barti!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christa, Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you both and thank you for choosing me as your guide. Regards Barti

Barti did an excellent job of combining the usual sites with some more 'in depth' cultural and historical stops and information. He also accommodated a special request we had to visit the University of Sharjah.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, Thanks for your kind words. It was indeed a pleasure meeting you both. Regards Barti
Barti is very knowledgeable of all the states of UAE. I am travelling with a young child and he understood if I need an extra stop to the toilets or it takes me a longer time to deal/see/do anything. Transport is very clean and well taken care of, a very comfortable drive. I will not hesitate to recommend to anyone to take up the tour guide service with Barti.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Norfizah, It was a pleasure being with you all and Alia. Thank you for your kind words. Regards Barti
