Sameh picked my husband and myself up at our hotel to spend a full day touring. We had a fabulous day seeing everything Dubai has to offer. Sameh loves Dubai and had us fall in love with it also. He took many pictures for us and is quite a fantastic photographer. He recommended a great lunch and dinner place. We really learned so much about the culture and couldn't believe how safe Dubai is. You will not find a better tour guide in Dubai

We had the good fortune and distinct privilege of having Sameh lead us on an incredible 8+ hour tour in, around, and through Dubai. I expect premium escorting from TBL guides. Sameh far exceeded that! Prompt pick-up. Clean, comfortable transportation. An encyclopedic knowledge of Dubai and all things Emirate-related. No subject off limits. No rush at any stops. Personal perspective in addition to facts and figures. Great restaurant choice. We left Dubai much more knowledgeable because of Sameh.

As two American ladies traveling in Dubai, we could not imagine doing it without Sameh. Sameh took us to everything we wanted to see, provided access to his contacts, was a resource for shopping and Emirate culture. We also toured Abu Dhabi and the dessert dune bashing tour with Sameh. Sameh was ultra professional and was never judgmental when explaining more sensitive matters of religion, culture, and politics. He was an ideal guide. Thank you.

Sameh was a delightful and very informative guide. We only had 4 hours to see Dubai, but he made sure we saw the key areas and got a very good sense what the city, and country was like. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.

This tour exceeded all expectations. This was the best part of our three week vacation. We went to all the normal places and then were exposed to some out of the way things that tourists may not get to see. Sameh was SUPERB and I recommend him for your trip to Dubai. A class act!!

5 stars do not reflect Sameh's 10* performance. His delivery and intuition of what clients want to see and hear shows his experience. We covered so much in a day, we felt we had been there a week! We really enjoyed the historical, cultural, political, and social discussions. He drove comfortably and safely, using well-timed routes and layouts. His awareness of traffic, parking and sights allowed for great photos throughout the day. We were sad to leave but took home many memories and positive feelings.

Tour: Camel Souk Visit - Full day Al ain tour, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Date: Feb 4/19

The tour was excellent, we went to Al Ain to see a bit different area of the country. Two of the favorite parts of the tour were the camel market where Sameh was able to explain traditions and insights to the camels and the market. The other favorite section of the tour was seeing the oasis. It was quite amazing to tour through the Oasis and be explained the history and see the beauty. Sameh was very informative of the local ways and history always adding interesting facts throughout the tour.

Sameh was wonderful . His English was perfect and his knowledge of the country was outstanding. I have used Tours by Locals many times and Sameh was one of the best guides. He was on time and very good about letting us decide what we wanted to do and see. I would definitely give Sameh a 7 star rating and know he would do an excellent job being your tour guide.

How lucky we got for having Sameh as our guide. He filled in at the last minute, I can't imagine having anyone better. He is smart, fun, knowledgeable, accepting of last minute changes, and a GREAT sense of humor. Only one negative on our whole adventure and that was not of Sameh's doing - was the trip to the top of the Burj Khalifa. I would recommend this to no-one unless they have a dire need to get to the top of something. We loved everything else, especially the serendipitous things along the way.

Sameh absolutely made our short stay in Dubai a success. He is informative, interesting, and very personable. He shared his story which gave us insight. He was clearly known and respected in the souks and he was sensitive to our requirements. I highly recommend having a local guide when you visit a city and Sameh was an excellent guide.

Sameh gave an excellent tour. He welcomed me at the airport promptly and conducted a tour that was so well-planned out that we saw so much more than I expected in just four hours. We also got off the beaten path, so to speak, and were able to see the city from different angles -- like the water taxi, and by experiencing some of the markets. Sameh was fun to talk with during the tour and also very helpful. I would certainly recommend this tour with Sameh to other travelers.

Had a thoroughly enjoyable 4 hour tour around the city on a short layover in Dubai. Sameh was very accommodating and it was a pleasure to have hung out with him. He was on time at pick up and dropped us off right on time for our connecting flight. We had interesting conversations and was told interesting facts about the UAE. We even stopped to pick & sample some fresh dates off a palm tree!! Looking forward to a longer stay in Dubai next time around.
