Ute was the perfct guide for me for Dubai and I am lookng forward to workng with her again in 2 days in another port via my cruiseship . The places she took me were things I would never have found on my own in the souks, and historical sightseeing . Spending the day touring with Ute was like meeting an old friend and having the pleasure learning many interesting facts. Excellent guide and I highly recommend Ute. Tours by locals has matched me with the perfect people for me in my travels .

Our private Dubai city tour with Ute was excellent. Ute was very informative, spoke perfect English, and went out of her way to make our tour interesting and enjoyable. We never felt hurried and she is a very safe driver. She also gave us valuable tips on how to get the most out of our 5 day stay in Dubai which we found very helpful. I would really recommend Ute as your guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, it was my pleasure to be your guide. I am glad that I was able to help you make the most out of your visit in Dubai. Hope to see you back in the near future.

If there were a 10 star rating, we would definitely rate Ute that. She was a very nice guide. We saw all the highlights in Bur Dubai and Deira. Ute was able to adapt during the tour to our wishes. As we had a tour for two there was also a lot of space for privacy. We would book she again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vielen Dank fuer die super Bewertung. Es hat mich sehr gefreut Euch kennenzulernen und freue mich sehr dass Euch unsere kurze gemeinsame Tour so gut gefallen hat. Ich wuerde mich freuen Euch einmal wieder in Dubai oder Abu Dhabi begruessen zu duerfen. Sonnige Gruesse aus Dubai !

My husband and I both really enjoyed this day. Ute took so much trouble to make sure the tour fitted what we wanted. As it was our 30th anniversary, she made it very special for us. Really enjoyed all parts of the tour from water taxi markets, Burj Khalifa 148 floor sunset, Burj Al Arab for Friday Brunch (which was amazing). I would thoroughly recommend her. It was an excellent tour.

Absolutely fantastic. Ute has an amazing understanding of her adopted city and nothing seemed too much trouble. She guided us through the crazy city that is Dubai and made us feel both welcome and well looked after. We had a pretty comprehensive introduction to the major highlights - which is exactly what we wanted, with a few surprises along the way. Thank you Ute!!

I was greated with enthusiasm by Ute, and this continued right through the tour. I was amazed how much she knew about the place, people and politics of the place. She was always thoughtful of my requirements. I thoroughly enjoyed my trip around the area because it was obviously she knew what I wanted. Nothing was too much trouble with her. I would certainly recommend Ute for anyone who wanted amour but especially for woman on her own.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Veronica, it was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for your kind words and I wish you many memorable moments throughout your entire trip.

I was very impressed with the service we received from toursbylocals.com from booking to execution. We had to cancel our initial tour due to illness but toursbylocals.com reseduled so that we could still enjoy the sites! I would recommend booking your tour at the beginning of your trip - this allows for you to further explore points of special interest. Our guide Ute, was presonable, knowledable and professional - I would highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lianne, thank you for your kind words. I am happy your Dubai experience was a good one despite the illness. I hope your husband has fully recovered. Hope to see you again sometime. All the best, Ute

Ute was a brilliant and highly skilled guide offering so many insights into Dubai's hotspots. The tour was perfectly planned and flexible according our personal interests and wishes. Ute allowed as much time as required for all spots and spend even much more than agreed time with us without extra money. She gave good recommendations for bars, restaurants and other tours. We enjoyed every single minute. Thank you so much.

Ute was prompt in responding to the couple of emails we sent in advance. When we connected, she had a proposed agenda that responded to the interests we had outlined in advance. She could give us background information about Dubai while negotiating traffic at the same time. She was sensitive to planning our time together so that we could have lunch together after a period of having been on our feet. Ute is very personable and speaks English fluently. We recommend her highly!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I am glad you enjoyed the tour as much as I did. Save journey home! Hope to see you again. All the best, Ute

She was a constant fount of info on Dubai, took us where we wanted to go, accompanied us thru the souk, across the river on a Dhow, drove out on the palm island, saw the marina area.

I really appreciate Ute taking the extra step. I had a minor emergency at my departing airport. I was unable to bring my tripod with me in my carryon luggage. A quick e-mail to Ute explained my situation and I just hoped for the best. Ute met me at the airport and she even managed to provide me a tripod for my evening photography. Save my night shots!

Ute gave us terrific advice before we arrived - about what to see and do in Dubai before /after our tour with her- and we enjoyed our two days with her as our guide. She's a terrific driver, very safe and savvy about road shut downs, bad traffic areas/times. We tailored our tour to our interests based on her recommendations. It was very successful. She was flexible and intuitive about our needs, as well as being a genuine, thoughtful person. She provided a great experience for us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hollie, thank you very much for your kind words. I also had a great time showing you Dubai. Hope to see you again sometime soon.
