Sunil was the perfect answer for a four hour window during an airport layover in Dubai. Being met at the airport by a professional guide who filled our time with expertise and efficient use of our visit was sheer joy. One could not ask for a better guide, historian, and cultural ambassador to transport us seamlessly through the famous hotspots of this dazzling metropolis. Great pace. His sensitivity to our physical needs was a bonus, as our ages ranged from 54 to 84. 5 stars for a stellar experience!

Our guide Sunil did a wonderful job showing us the city and explaining the sights and culture. He had a challenge as we were on a layover and started at 12:30 am when everything was closed. Despite the early time we had a wonderful experience and learned and saw a lot. I highly recommend Sunil and will book him when we are in Dubai in the future.

Sunil was was my personal guide for my four hour tour. I provided my personal itinerary as I had visited Dubai many times in the past but not for the last 11 years and knew that much had and still is changing in Dubai's architectural landscape. Sunil was a fantastic guide, he was SO informative on many topics about Dubai's culture, history and landscape. Panorama scenes were a must in Dubai.. everything is tall and big. Thankyou Sunil for a memorable visit to Dubai, worth every $ The only way to see Dubai

I am so IMPRESSED with ToursByLocals & my tour guide Sunil. My flight was 5 hours late; I feared that my tour was lost. Arriving at Dubai Airport I find my name on a sign & my private guide waiting to make my trip to Dubai a memorable one. He rescheduled & made it easy on me due to my long haul flight. I felt safe & taken care of the whole tour even on the wrong side of the road & in traffic that resembled a city race track at times. Such a BEAUTIFUL place & I fell for it too. Lots of stunning photos.

Definitely choose the perfect guide! Sunil was very informative and being our first time in Dubai, he showed us all the places that we had wanted to visit (and also places we didn't know it exists), all within the 6 hours!! He also brought us to Zam Zam Mandian for lunch-an awesome & sumptuous lunch! Sunil was also very attentive. Knew that we haven't had breakfast & since we didn't have enough time, he brought us to a nearby place for us to grab something along the way. We enjoyed our trip very much!

Sunil arrived right on time at the hotel and we were able to cover a great deal of Dubai. He was most informative and I had an excellent excursion looking at superb buildings, going on the river taxi and wandering in the market places (spice, gold). Credit should also be given to the excellent driver. This half day private tour which started at 14.00 and ended at 18.00 is to be highly recommended.

Fantastic half day tour of Dubai. Sunil was on time, friendly and engaging and very knowlegable. His van was a newer model, clean and very well maintained and we loved the fact his tour included a driver which meant his full attention was dedicated to our tour. Unbeleavably well organised my wife and I would recommened Sunil to anyone traveling to Dubai. His english is outstanding so there are no language issues at all. Don't think things could have gone any better.

The itinerary was jam packed to the extent that I felt like I'd really "seen" the city in just four hours. The guide Sunil was exceptional and a very enthusiastic guide. I wanted to add a visit up the Burj Khalifa to my itinerary, and Sunil was able to adjust the programme to suit my needs. Fantastic! Thank you so much.

He did a wonderful job of showing us all the sites of Dubai that could be crammed into 4 hours! This was my younger son's first time in Dubai and boy, did Sunil make the most of it. It was also very cool to see things I had missed on previous visits. Sunil did a great job! Thanks again for everything.

Es una persona simpatica que además te explica cualquier cosa que preguntes de Dubai. Nos recogió en el aeropuerto y nos devolvió puntualmente. Aunque fue una visita corta, estuvo muy bien aprovechada gracias al guía, haciendonos una idea de lo que la ciudad es. Además disfrutamos juntos de un sabroso plato de cordero. Tour muy recomendable.

Overall an enjoyable experience. Sunil was very friendly and accommodating and allowed us to tailor the tour according to our needs. He has a good understanding of Dubai and spoke reasonably good English. His opinions of the lifestyle and culture of the West is not quite based on facts; some reading and learning will be helpful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bobby, Thanks for your warm thoughts for me. & I will take your advise to read some articles in order to give me more Facts & gain more information with regards to the culture on the west part.

We booked this tour as it covered all the areas we wanted to see in Dubai in one outing and wanted a guide as well so we can learn about the history and culture. Our guide Sunil provided all of this for us. He was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. We also had many opportunities to take photos and take our time. He was able to show us locations of where to take the best photos and where to buy tickets to things and many handy tips along the way. Thanks again. Loved it

The guide came on time to pick us up at the airport, took us around the city and showed us all the highlights. We didnt feel rushed at any time, he gave us ample time to look around. Although we only had 4 hours, we felt he did justice to the tour and felt satisfied that we had seen all we wanted to see. His AC car was very comfortable, we felt very safe with him, would definitely use him again and have no hesitation what so ever in recommending him. Thank you Tours by Local

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your interest in Dubai history, literature and our life,culture Sudha! I was really happy to show you around 'the most abstract and intentional city in the world'.
