Sunil was by far one of the most interesting, engaging and knowledgeable we've been lucky enough to enjoy - ever! He was flexible, timely, considerate, very well versed in local history and culture and a genuine delight to spend time with. Sunil, did those little 'extras' and thoughtful things that made a good day, -- great. We can not recommend him enough. Our only regret now is that we didn't spend more time in Dubai.

What a great host, what a great day!! Sunil and his driver were professional, enlightening and full of information. From the time of pick up the conversation started and didn't end til the end of the tour!! I walked away with so much information that I couldn't wait to message my friends about what I had learned and post pictures on fb for everyone to see! Sunil also helped construct some memorable photos and helped in bargaining situations! Thank you!!

My husband and I very much enjoyed our 10 hour tour of Dubai with our guide, Sunil. Being on a private tour is the most pleasant and efficient way to see a city. Sunil was a wonderful guide, providing us with lots of fascinating information and interesting insights into the city and its people. Plus, he managed to book THE most perfect table for us to enjoy an excellent dinner while watching the dancing fountains and the spectacular view of Burj Khalifa at night. Unforgettable! THANK YOU, SUNIL!!!

Had a great time in Dubai Layover. Sunil was an excellent guide/ Professional. Courteous and punctual. He has a lot of knowledge about Dubai's history and made the tour much more informative, providing the background of the various places we visited. He was no in a rush and actually added a couple extra monuments in the tour. Would highly recommend.

Sunil was a wonderful guide. We spent a couple of days getting to know him and his desire to please is outstanding. His knowledge of the local area, culture and history really was enjoyable. Today Sunil's father was ill and although he suffered a personal emergency, he made arrangements with another guide to assist us in the morning. It was unbelievable that he actually came to meet us and take us to Abu Dhabi given the circumstances. We have made a new friend and cannot recommend him highly enough.

It was our first time in Dubai. We only had a few hours between the flights and I wanted the tour to be as productive as possible, no time wasted. I didn't care for shopping, malls and hotels. I wanted to learn about Emirati culture, religion and see traditional and historical sites. That was exactly the kind of tour we've got with Sunil. He was very informative and attentive to our needs. All questions answered. Very polite and friendly. He did his best to make us fall in love with his home city!

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!

We did the old and new Dubai tour. Sunil was extremely accommodating and flexible with the tour. We modified it a bit to go to the skydeck on Burj and a bit less time in mall. Sunil has very broad and deep knowledge regarding Dubai and beyond. We learned a great deal in a short period of time. We never felt rushed and he always made us feel that we were most important. Outstanding guide and extremely informative. We are so glad we selected Sunil and Tours by Locals vs. a larger tour group.

Sunil was fantastic. He was charming, engaging, funny and so informed about his city. We would thoroughly recommend him to anyone wanting an in depth locals view of Dubai. We got a real taste of the city, that no group tour could have offered. A highlight was visiting the mosque and getting a real feel for the culture and tastes. Because he is a local, he had special access to places we wouldn't have been able to see without him.

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!

What an awesome tour experience. Sunil was fantastic, providing us a great wealth of information for the 4 hour Dubai tour. In the 4 hours we had a great variety of the incredible city of Dubai, covering both the old and new parts of th city. He had a private driver in a very nice vehicle that was great for our family of 4z Would highly recommend for your time in Dubai!

Sunil was not our guide. Anil was our guide for this excursion. He was a accomplished dune bashing driver and introduced us to a friendly camel guide who led us on our camel ride. A kl was pleasant and made sure we were taken care of at dinner.

Didn't find this tour as interesting as Dubai although the mosque was fantastic. The driver provided us with the appropriate clothing to wear which was helpful but we just wished that Sunil had told us ahead of time as we were stressing about appropriate clothing. We visited Abu Dhabi on our return from Africa so may have been a little tired of travelling by that time.

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

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.

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.

Exemplary in all respect.our guide Sunil Sathyan was avery friendly and knowledgeable person. Most importantly ready and willing to go that extra mile to please and make the tour better. One of our best if not the best tours. Although we had only half a day but he managed time and destination to maximise the experience. It was like being shown around by a family member living in the city. Very highly recommended. ��������������
