Vinod was at the ship gates as we walked out the terminal. His knowledge of Dubai from a tourist level was most refreshing. It is a big city and we covered many areas and discussed a few personal stories as well. Air conditioned van with heaps of leg room is a plus in the heat. We selected minimal temples, mosques etc., and he showed us much of the old and new attractions. A good negotiator on prices of gifts. Loved it.

If we could give Vinod a rating of six stars we would do so! He made our day in Dubai one we will long remember. We ended our tour at the airport and rather than dropping us off he parked the car and walked us all the way to our check in counter. This was above and beyond what one might have expected. Also, he went out of his way to take us to a mosque that we wanted to see. His English is perfect.

In short, one of the best tour guides I have ever met. Met at the port with a personalized sign. Transportation just steps outside. He took us to every spot we wanted to see in Dubai, and knew the answer to every question. His knowledge of Dubai is amazing. He took us to spots we would never find by ourselves, and structured the tour exactly as we had requested. His help at the souk is what every traveler needs, and I was extremely impressed.

The tour Vinod A. gave me was the highlight of my 6 week vacation. He was professional, personable, attractive and what I most appreciated was his complete knowledge of the region. He was like an encyclopedia of information. I ask many questions - about the social, economic, political, development - there was nothing he wasn't able to answer in a clear concise manner. Really this man could be an ambassador for the Emirates. He loves the place; loves showing it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marry,..Thank you for encouraging me with your great feedback, It makes me really appreciate with my working where my efforts are appreciated. I am glad this gave me enthusiasms and opportunity for the work I do.

Vinod was an excellent guide. He arrived at the airport to pick us up early because the flight arrived early. It was easy to find Vinod at the airport and he delivered us back to the airport promptly so that we could catch our flight. Vinod provided a wonderful adventure in Dubai.

We could not thank him enough for making our 10 hour layover in Dubai awesome!

First Tours by Locals guide. We were extremely impressed with Vinod's knowledge and commentary. He was punctual and immediately noted that my blouse would be unacceptable in the mosque so produced a suitable garment from his car. The vehicle was comfortable and roomy. He took us everywhere we wanted to visit and more He even returned 2 of our group midway through the tour so that they could take a specialized 'ship trip'. Excellent in every respect.

Vinod is a FIVE STAR tour guide. Fluent English, very knowledgeable, a true professional. We had seen a few of the sites before our cruise, so Vinod rearranged and added a few things he thought we would enjoy....we did. He drove his own car (very nice and easy to access). After our tour, we felt we had experienced Dubai. If you are lucky to book Vinod, you won't be disappointed. We were a party of 4.

A great trip to and around Abu Dhabi. Vinod was prompt for the agreed pick up, made our party of six immediately at ease and we were amazed by his knowledge. He arranged the tour as requested and was there to provide information and advice. The day was fun and his experience allowed us time to enjoy and see more places than expected. We spent the evening reliving the experiences and will forever have happy memories. I have no problem giving a 5 star rating and recommending Vinod to all.

Another 5 stars, but he deserves 10. I was in the hospital about to have my appendix removed and it was the final day of our cruise. Vinod drove to Abu Dhabi and picked up my husband from the ship along with all of our luggage. He brought him to the hospital and brought the luggage up to my room. My husband was able to stay in my room and Vinod came to see us avery day. As soon as I was moved to the hotel, he met us on the 8th and took us on a tour of Dubai. It was excellent and he really saved us.

Vinod was a LIFESAVER for us, he deserves 10 stars. As it turned out, I had appendicitis and went to the hospital that day, so he gave us a tour on the 8th when I was able to get around. The tour was EXCELLENT - we couldn't have survived so easily in Dubai without Vinod by our side. He met us in the AM when I had to go to the hospital, even though the ship had arranged for our transit to the hospital.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Merdene, I was so sad once you are admitted in the hospital, But God gives me a chance to show you Dubai, that s made me really happy, Thanks for your great comment!!!

I indicated that two of our party of 4 are interested in food. Immediately, he took us to a date shop, the vegetable market, and then the fish market, resulting in my friend wanting seafood for lunch. Vinod was very patient and able to get us to see everything on our list. I highly recommend Vinod!

My wife and I had a 6 hour tour of Abu Dhabi with Vinod on January 2, 2017. Vinod was very well informed, communicated well in English, went out of his way to show us additional features of the area that he thought that we would like, and did a terrific job of showing us the highlights of the area.

He has a particular passion for Al-Ain, and we appreciated his flexibility in customising the schedule to align with our specific interests (skipping the Souk and our lunch break to include 1.5 hours in the wonderful Zoo, which was not on the original itinerary).
