Sunil was just great! We understood so much more about the culture of Dubai. It was a fantastic and fun day. I would do more tour with him!
Edward KernsUnited States
Amazing all day your of Dubai. Exstensive knowledge of history, culture current affairs, religious history and practices and beliefs. The social economic issues of Dubai. And on and on. An amazing history lesson throughout the day with stops at the great venues and special spots to view them. Funny as heck also. Love him.
Lynn M.United Kingdom
Sunil was a great guide with amazing knowledge at his finger tips. He took us everywhere we asked including dropping us off and collecting us after the 1 hr Dhow Cruise. He was actively very helpful, took photos and showed us more than we could have imagined. Comfortable vehicle. Would thoroughly recommend
Michael TobeyUnited States
Sunil provided an excellent day of touring Dubai. I was a repeat visitor but my wife and daughter were experiencing Dubai for the first time. The tour mixed major sites with some local flavor including a good local restaurant for us to take a break for lunch. Sunil is customer focused and was very attentive to our interests in adjusting the schedule based on what interested us the most. I have utilized ToursByLocals in nearly 10 countries and this tour with Sunil ranks near the top. Thanks Sunil
Marie TorguemanUnited States
Had only one day to explore Dubai with my husband and this 6 hr tour was perfect. Sunil was waiting for us at the airport and drove us to see and walk around so many of Dubai's wonderful sites, hotels, beaches, souks, malls, hotels, buildings and even took a little boat ride. He is very knowledgeable and patient explaining everything we were curious about. Had an amazing, unforgettable day and am looking forward to returning and doing future tours with Sunil in other areas when I have more time. Thank you
Ronnie BotkinUnited States
We enjoyed our time on the tour,. It's a great way to see a lot in a short time,
LInda MoskowitzWinter Park, FLORIDA, United States
We had a limited layover in Dubai so I wanted to maximize our time. I have hired off Tours By Local in the past and had great success. Once again I was more than impressed. Sunil was AMAZING! His response time to my emails were quick. He arranged our day according to things I wanted to see and things he felt were highlights. I felt like we covered all of Dubai in 6 hours although I'm sure there is so much more but from our perspective he gave us a wonderful insight into the culture, history and customs.
Sunil was an excellent guide, he knew how much time we had for our layover, and worked within that constraint to show us the highlights, he is polite, knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor. Thanks for the awesome tour
Lynn NolenUnited States
Excellent day touring. Sunil made sure we were comfortable. He is very knowledgeable, polite and has a good sense of humor. I highly recommend this tour.
Richard TaffetUnited States
Sunil was fantastic. Best tour of Dubai ever. We saw all the highlights in the time allotted. He was great in walking us around areas that we could easily have gotten lost in (Ex: The Dubai Mall). He also had a great sense of humor and was very patient with all our questions....
Had a great day with Sunil exploring Dubai yesterday. He was full of information, courteous & made sure we saw everything we had wanted to see. Would certainly recommend him for your day out.

Reica GrayUnited Kingdom
Sunil was an excellent guide, taking us on a thorough and very entertaining tour of just about all the main sites. We were driven around in comfort and Sunil ensured that we had some great photos to go home with, especially as he is far better at photography than either my husband or I. I would recommend him highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Reica, Thanks for your appreciation ! it was my pleasure to assist you here in dubai .Photographs not to mention , its the part of the deal .

Beth FoxUnited States
Sunil was terrific. We filled six hours driving to the major sights. His commentary was detailed, complete and informative. I dont see how one can accomplish as much on one's own. Sunil knows Dubai inside and out and is prepared to answer any questions. Bounding with much energy, we moved quickly from site to site. His tour was well worth the price.
Karl ShallenbergerUnited States
On time, extremely knowledgeable about the area, extremely efficient and a delightful guide. We were able to see all the highlights of Dubai in 5 hours and he gave us detailed instructions to go to the Dubai Mall later that evening to see the fountains,the aquarium, the waterfall and the ice skating rink. We are very glad we hired him and highly recommend him.

Sunil, our guide was very knowledgable and professional and advised us for the best use of our 6 hour tour. He knew the best places to take us to get the best pictures and was able to take us to places that not everyone had access to. He had a lot of knowledge of the city and showed us the best of Dubai. If we would have tried doing ourselves, we wouild have missed a lot. He even helped us get the best pictures with our Iphones.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeanne, No words can express how happy I am to lend you an Excursion. Thank you so much for your kindness and appreciation.Until next time.

Zara HaimoUnited States
Sunil did an excellent job overall getting us around Dubai to see all the sights with no wasted time. He knew exactly where to park and how to get in/out expeditiously. He has lived in Dubai all his life, so was able to answer our many questions in depth. He made sure to show us exactly how to get to a couple places after he dropped us off so we didn't wander around in the heat trying to figure it out on our own. The only reason for 4 stars is he was a bit distracted due to a trip later that evening.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Zara, Thanks a lot for such a wonderful words for me, next time i will do my best not being distracted. Hope that we cross our path again.
Outstanding, informative, comprehensive tour. Sunil was polite, courteous, respectful and incredible knowledgeable about Dubai. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with him and greatly appreciated his extra efforts and attention to every detail. We highly recommend Sunil and look forward to touring with him next time we visit the UAE. Superb job, Sunil!

Sophia HoldsUnited States
Our visit to Dubai and Abu Dhabi would not have been as comprehensive or complete without Sunil. He is a fabulous tour guide. He was extremely accommodation on many levels. We had late starts as we attended a meeting at the convention center, we increased the number in our group last minute, and interrupted the tour to allow my husband to drive the Yas Marina Circuit. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and history. Furthermore, Sunil is very nice and pleasant. Thanks! Sophia & John
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sophia! thanks a lot for your appreciation & kind words.
Bibi KumarUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you very much for your great review! I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time in "Fabulous Dubai". Wish to see you back..
This was our first experience with toursbylocals and we were very satisfied with it. Sunil is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and has a good sense of humour (that you need in a 6-hour tour). He was great with my 11 & 7 year-old boys and handled their (sometimes too many) questions with ease and a smile. He knows the best spots to take pictures and drives us in a comfortable and clean vehicle. The delicious local food was a bonus. For a family-friendly tour, Sunil is the perfect choice for a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth, Thank you very much for your review and recommendations! I am so joyful to spend more time together and visit other interesting sites detailed history of the city.

The tour was very thorough and informative. Sunil's knowledge of the history of Dubai was what we expected of a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great review Leah. I am so happy that you are my costumer.
When searching for a guide, I came across Sunil of "Tours by Locals" and immediately didn't look any further! A glorious 4 hour trip around Dubai was worth all that money! I was met punctually at the airport and we immediately set off to see all the sights Sunil had suggested. Each sight was well explained and he has a tremendous amount of knowledge of the Dubai he is passionate about. He even let me paddle in the Persian Gulf!! I would highly recommend any of his Dubai Tours. Thank you Sunil.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Genie, Thank you very much for your great review! & recommendation. I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time in Dubai with me.
Gillian MortiboyUnited Kingdom
Sunil was the most fantastic, informative, helpful tour guide who I would thoroughly recommend. Nothing was too much trouble and he showed us far more than we had asked for. He knew all the best photo spots and took some brilliant family pics for us. There was no rush, in fact, he spent 3/4 of an hour longer than we booked and was still prepared to spend even more time than that with us! Lovely, family man who we felt completely safe with. He even bartered us a few bargains in the Souks. Thanks Sunil
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your dynamic words Gillian! I am so glad to met you..
Helen SwainUnited Kingdom
It was a first trip to Dubai for my family. Sunil collected us from our hotel and showed us all that Dubai had to offer. He was very knowledgable and friendly and more than happy to stop for photographs, change the itinerary to suit our needs and answer all our questions. Regular water and comfort breaks were provided. We can wholeheartedly recommend Sunil as a guide and the tour (Dubai Shore Excursion) would be enjoyed by anyone who is on a flight stop over or as in introduction to Dubai. Thanks Sunil.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your warm acknowledgement Helen. I will always be happy to showed you around our beautiful city in Dubai. Till next time
Sunil was so much more than we had expected as a tour guide. He was on time, personable, agreeable, learned the names of the passengers, and was a wonderful representative for your company. I highly recommend Sunil and ToursByLocals.

Keith HoHong Kong
As a local borne and live there, Sunil has shown his expertise over his home city. Within 8 hours he showed us all the highlights and the best in dubai - including help us to arrange the breakfast in Burj Al Arab, and give us a free transfer to the airport after the trip. A very good touring experience in general.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words,Keith. I appreciate your great interest in Dubai history and culture. I was really happy to show you around the highlights of the city.
Sunil is really knowledgeable and a very eager guide - and had a big smile on his face all day. We had a great first day in Dubai with a 6 hour "Dubai Shore Excursion". A perfect start of our 3 day holiday. He answered our questions, but most of all he told us EVERYTHING without us asking - which was great! We would have given him 5 stars rating if he had joined us in the museum, gold souk and spice market as well. He dropped us of because of parkingproblem (which was indeed a good reason).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marie, I'm very glad that you enjoyed my tour. I will be always happy to show you around once again.
Beverly A.United States
Sunil is an enthusiastic tour guide. The 6 hour tour of Dubai gave us a great overview of the city and culture so that we had an idea of where to go and what to do on our own in the following days.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thank you very much for your good comments. Regards Sunil
Charne ThuynsmaSouth Africa
Sunil is truly a unique individual & excellent guide!!! Sunil was very helpful & patient. As a photographer, I wanted the flexibility of a private tour which Sunil was quite happy to provide. He was very patient and thanks to him, I got some AMAZING photos of Dubai. He was very knowledgeable when taking me round the sites. As a female travelling at my own, safety was also a #1 priority. Again, I can recommend Sunil to anyone travelling on their own, he's a trustworthy guide & very safe driver!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such a fabulous satisfaction & recommendation. I am so glad to know you.. Till next time again
