Daniel P.United States
Highly recommend this tour. Best way to see Dubai in 8 hours. Our 2 day stay in Dubai would have been disappointing without Sunil. Not sure about other tour guides but strongly recommend Sunil. Pleasant, educational and very informative. Learned much about Dubai and very important to us about it's culture. Have been on many tours throughout the world and by far this was the best one.

Well worth the money ; we did the 8 hours tour . Sunil went out his way to cater for our tour. He was very knowledgeable and very honest about the shopping places . Gave tips about shopping and restaurants etc. Very customer centred and considerate . People like Sunil will always make people welcome to Dubai and give the city a good name . Thank you again for a wonderful tour. We will be back soon for a longer stay !
We spent a full day with Sunil touring Dubai, he was extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I would highly recommend him.

We enjoyed our day with Sunil Sathyan K. very much, he was very knowledgeable about the history of Dubai and was able to answer any questions we had. We learned a lot about the makeup of the city, and the different cultures within the city. He was great at helping us capture the experience with pictures, and even arranged a special stop for our son so that he could look at exotic cars. I would definitely recommend your service and Sunil to our friends.

Carolina Blanquer CalvoSpain
Sunil was an excellent guide! We couldn't get a better one! We had a 14-hour layover and we did an 8-hour tour. We were able to customize the tour with Sunil's help and it was possible to visit everything. We also booked tickets for the Burj-Kalifa tower and Sunil advised us when to book them. He share a lot of information about every place we went, making our trip to Dubai a memorable one. He was friendly and easy to talk to. We really enjoyed our trip. We recommend him as a tour guide 100%.

Sunil was awesome and made our 1 day layover amazing. We were able to see everything we wanted and he was extremely knowledgeable about Dubai and the UAE. He was FULL of facts- he even knew all of the spices we encountered in the Souk. On top of all of that, he is very personable and actually hilarious, he had our entire team cracking up. We want to thank him for an outstanding day that we will never forget, definitely made more memorable bc he was our guide. We wish him the best and highly recommend him!

Louise CampbellUnited Kingdom
We had a great day with Sunil; he was friendly, polite and did everything possible to make sure we enjoyed our day. He showed us all the main sights in Dubai that we wished to see. He explained about many of the customs of Dubai so we were able to gain a better understanding of the culture there. Sunil took us to a restaurant at the Creek for lunch. The food was delicious and the prices very reasonable. In all we had a very interesting and informative day and I would definitely recommend Sunil as a guide
Peter KurzweilUnited States
We feel so fortunate to have spent the day with Sunil. He arranged a wonderful 8 hour personalized tour for us. His vehicle is clean and big and comfortable. He knows the sights and culture of the city - and knows how to help you bargain at the markets! Let him take you to his favorite lunch place - it was a fantastic meal - and so inexpensive. We are recommending to all our friends and family that when they go to Dubai to arrange a day with Sunil
Sunil was a great, knowledgeable guide and very patient with 4 women and ALL their questions. One lady had a camera issue and he added a stop at a mall in order for her to purchase the necessary missing attachment. The entire day was comprised of new sites, smells and learning. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sunil for this tour.
June ReynoldsUnited States
Sunil was very patient with us. We were primarily interested in photography and spent more time at various places than he had planned. He was willing to alter his itinerary to meet our needs.
Very nice tour. Sunil arranged everything to our plans and wishes. Would always book a tour with him again when travelling to/via Dubai. Thanks Sunil!
Julie ParshallUnited States
Sunil was the perfect tour guide for two chatty American women. He was very knowledgeable about UAE's history and culture and was happy to go "off-script" and share some of his very interesting personal and family history. We asked to add the textile souk and the dancing fountains to our tour and he was happy to accommodate us. When we left our textile purchases on the water taxi, Sunil was so kind to track them down and mail them to the US for us - truly going above and beyond!
Barbara KaplanUnited States
Sunil is an excellent guide and he provided us with a extensive 7 hr layover tour of Dubai. We saw the highlights of the city and he explained much and answered our questions. He even went almost 1/2 hour over the 7 hours. The car was comfortable, air conditioned and water was provided. Sunil, was flexible in doing what we wanted and our needs were met. He was on time, friendly and I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
George Petersen IIIUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi George. Thank you for giving me the Excellent rate. Hope to see you again.
Kelle KucharskiUnited States
Phenomenal tour! I could not have asked for a better guide than Sunil. He was prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable. I was completely comfortable touring as a woman traveling alone. Sunil assisted in negotiations at the souks and made it clear he expects only the best prices for his customers. He was flexible and managed to squeeze in a quick stop at the beach fir me even though it meant running over the time scheduled. I highly recommend Sunil as your tour guide in Dubai.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kelle, Thank you for your Appreciation such an honor to served you and shared the beauty of the City.Hoping to see you again!
Jeffrey BlynderUnited States
We took the Dubai layover tour with Sunil and had a wonderful time. He provided the everything for us from the transportation to a diverse itinerary and we covered a lot of ground in our short stay. We learned a lot about the food, culture, and religions of this exciting city and Sunil went out of his way to provide for our every need. He is knowledgeable, professional and personable and the highlight of our time in Dubai. We would look forward to another tour with him if we are fortunate to return.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jeffrey, Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so happy to know you. Until next time.
Jim HindeUnited States
This rating is for an 8 hour Dubai tour. Sunil was friendly,knowledgeable, punctual and flexible. He shared a wealth of knowledge and accomodated our desire to visit the top of the Burj Khalifa. He worked that extra 45 minutes into the trip,and we still visited all sites on the itinerary. Ordered for us at a great and inexpensive seafood restaurant, off the tourist beaten path. Had 6 ice cold bottles of water for the 2 of us. Knows where all the restrooms are. Spent 10 hours with us. 5 star indeed
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jim, Thank you so much for your kind words. I am happy you are my costumer. Till next time.
Ray KlausenUnited States
Our guide was terrific. Very informative and responsive to our needs. We were traveling with an elderly gentleman who moved slow and who is hard of hearing. Not an easy person to deal with. Our guide Sunil could not have been more accommodating. He was a real plus to our stay .r. Klausen
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ray, Thanks for such a breathtaking message for me. I am so glad to meet you. Wish to see you again.
Mary MulierUnited States
The scope of this tour is overwhelming. So much visusal and factual content to absorb. However, Sunil made an impressive effort to personalize our experience--providing an abaya and shlela for our mosque tour, incorporating a stop at a local mall to purchase a critical personal item, taking us to a very authentic loclal restaurant that featured wonderful seafood at an incredible value. He was personable, entertaining, and we would recommend him to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, Thanks for such an awe-inspiring thoughts for me. I am so joyful to see you Till we meet again..!
Marshall DeitschUnited States

Sheila GreenhornUnited Kingdom
Sunil is one of the best guides I've ever hung out with. He is professional and obviously knows his craft. My dad rarely gives compliment to anyone and yet Sunil got the highest recommendation. He arranged the tour to suit our needs and also changed the itinerary based on weather (it was way too hot during our visit). Also, we wanted to try local food so he suggested "mandi", a dish with awesome lamb and rice. $299 is worth every penny paid and we learned so much from Sunil. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Daniel, Thank you so much for your massive Appreciation. I am so joyful to meet you.. Wish to see you again.
Great day tour with a guide that is passionate about his work and knows it really well. Thourghly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William, We are so thankful for your warm Appreciation. Waiting for your return..

Ronald EllisDe Winton, ALBERTA, Canada
My wife and I had a very enjoyable tour of Dubai with Sunil. He was friendly and very knowledgeable and also flexible - willing to change planned visit sites and the time spent at sites to accommodate our preferences. His five star rating is well deserved!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ronald, Thank you so much an awe-inspiring message in me. So joyful to meet you. Wish to see you again.
Sunil is friendly,polite,patient but lacks of cultural knowledgments regarding the main sigths.He should improve his cultural skills.He should get in into the museums,mosques,etc... with his guests To splain the history and architecture of the places and dont stay aiways resting in his Car waiting for us.We contract a quite expensive tour to have a " guide".Not a friendly driver who has a good car. A good taxi driver would cost far less
Il mio gruppo ha utilizzato il tour di Dubai ed il trasferimento dal porto di Dubai all'aeroporto. Siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti del servizio , per la grande puntualità, disponibilità , spiegazione dei posti visitati e precisione nei trasferimenti. Consiglio a chiunque vada a Dubai , di utilizzare questo servizio. Io lo farò il prossimo dicembre utilizzando ancora questa agenzia per il viaggio negli Emirati di mio figlio. Grazie ancora .

Sunil was very informative! We had a wonderful day touring Dubai. He was most accommodating!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marie, Thank you very much for your kind words. I hope to see you again and spend more time in Dubai.
We had an unbelievable day in Dubai with Sunil as our tour guide. He had made contact with us by mobile text prior to us landing in Dubai advising the pickup point. He arrived right on time for a 7am pick up and the day just got better from there. He was so full of information about Dubai and we found it so convenient to have our own guide, no hop on hopping off buses, nor big groups of people to contend with. The tour far surpassed our expectations. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cindy, Thank you very much for being my customers. It was my pleasure to show you around these Dazzling City of Dubai residencies.

Four of us arranged for Sunil to pick us up at Port Rashid after our cruise. We enjoyed an eight-hour layover tour before having him drop us off at the airport for our late flight home. Sunil was prepared, thorough, knowledgeable, and friendly. The vehicle was very comfortable. Everything was exactly as represented and a great deal for the price. We wholeheartedly recommend Sunil! Becky and Hoke
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Becky, I'm very glad that you enjoyed my tour & thanks a lot for the recommendation . I will be always happy to show you all the stunning places & landmarks of the Promising Dubai.

Jack MoneyUnited States
Incredible tour not to be missed; no worries. ToursByLocals guide Sunil was already booked that day. So, he arranged for Mr. Basheer to do his 8 Hour Dubai Layover tour. Dubai was wonderful. Greeted on time; saw all of the sights with no rush. Mr. Basheer was equally fantastic. Ended the day at the dancing fountains with time to see two shows from different vantages. Then, plenty of time to catch our departure flight. Sunil has a great tour, am sure he's a great guide, and if busy, has great colleagues.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback Jack. So glad to see you
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: The guide substitution was agreed to by the customer before the tour booking. It is ToursByLocals policy that in the unusual case where the guide actually giving the tour cannot be the person shown on our website, the customer is told before booking and agrees to the change.

Excellent Tour. Sunil was great! Only negative comment-spent a little too much time on his cell phone during the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. An Apology for any distraction of my phone next time I will keep it & focus on you..
