We feel most fortunate to have chosen Shehnaaz as our guide during our 3 day stay in Dubai. Steeped in the history and culture of the area, she designed and and carried out 2 full-day tours which gave us a varied and rewarding introduction to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and the greater Emirati region. And, importantly, she was at all times affable, accommodating, and fully invested in maximizing our experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robert Thank you for your kind review. It was my pleasure showing you around. Thanks for being such gracious guests.

we spent four days touring together after back and forth planning as to what we would see while in Dubai before boarding a cruise ship. Shehnaaz showed infectious enthusiasm for her product. We saw old Dubai, new Dubai, drove out to Abu Dhabi to see the mosque and palace, went to Sharjah to get the feel of a different Emirate. Anyone wishing to learn about the different components of this country would love to tour with her
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David Thank you so much for this honest and kind review. It was my pleasure showing you around. Thanks for being such gracious guests. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

Shehnaaz made our trip to Dubai outstanding! She spent so much time before our trip helping me to plan our agenda. I have never had a guide care so much about me enjoying our trip even on days she was not guiding us. She recommended restaurants, activities, and even made sure I understood the need to book early due to the holidays. The 2 days we toured with her our itinerary was so fun and well thought out. She followed up to check on me after our tours were complete. We felt like honored guests!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sheri. wow thank you for this amazing review. You know it was my pleasure working on yr UAE iternary, I wanted it to be memorable for you and Shana.

Shehnaaz is an absolutely wonderful guide. She is knowledgeable, caring and thoughtful. Seems that nothing is too much trouble for her - her client's wishes and needs come first. Her tour of Dubai and Abu Dhabi was well thought out and really interesting. The vehicle that she provided and her driver were also 1'st class. I recommend her without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much�� it was an absolute pleasure spending the 2 days showing you guys around. I had such a lovely time. Hope you visit again.. Enjy the cruise and love to all.
We are 3 couples who visited UAE by cruise ship, so we had no time to waste and selected a 2-days private guided tour. We have high expectations when we use a personal travel guide, but we can tell that Shehnaaz exceeded our expectations! Prior to our trip, we had questions about places to visit and Shehnaaz responded to our emails promptly. She was fantastic and we were so impressed with her professionalism and the whole service - thanks so much, Shehnaaz, for showing us Dubai and Abu Dhabi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tamara Thanks for your wonderful review. I had a great time showing you around, we laughed sooo much . Hope you will visit again. love to all

Shenhnaaz knowledge and passion for the Emirates is obvious. She was helpful in every way and did the majority of bargaining (very successfully) for all of us. I almost used a 4 star rating instead of 5 for only one reason overload with her enthusiasm she never took a break and we started to feel overloaded. We have used tours by locals and have never been disappointed. I would recommend her without question. Finding someone more helpful and as personable would be very difficult
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Thomas. thanks for your review. It was my pleasure showing you around. Regards to all.

I want to say that we have been using Tours by locals for quite some time now and by far the BEST experience and guide we have had is Shehnaaz. These past two days in Dubai and then in Abu Dhabi have been quite an experience. Shehnaaz is not only pleasant and courteous but her knowledge of the history and culture is fenomenal! She makes sure you are having a good time all the way through. She went out of her way to please us and made this tour memorable! I recommend anyone to book with Shehnaaz!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow. What can I say.. Thank you very much for this great review. My job was made so easy being with you two wonderful people... I felt I was with friends... so I enjoyed the time equally. Looking forward to a fun time in the desert today. Stay wonderful...
Very knowledgeable guide. Well organised tour. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great reviews. It was my pleasure planning your UAE iternary. Lovely family. Regards to all
Excellent friendly guide. Was very helpful in accommodating our requests while making sure the full itinerary was covered
This was a great tour and Shehnaaz provided knowledgeable insite. You could not ask for a better guide. She even went above the "call of duty" making sure one of our group had his cell phone returned to our hotel (he left it on the mini bus).

David KingDallas, TX, United States
We did a whirlwind tour of Dubai and Abu Dhabi in two days! A private driver with a large nice vehicle was provided as well; a blessing since we had some hefty luggage. This was a last minute trip, and I left it up to Shehnaaz to plan most of it. My wife requested to see "everything"! We did! What a tour! Shehnaaz had a great attitude, lots of energy and was punctual. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. She had an insider's knowledge of both cities, and she knew everyone. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David. Thanks for your kind review. Well I had to keep up, your energy was contagious. Will remember you as the couple I lost in Ferrari world. It was a pleasure. Love to Sylvia

Sheenaz prepared a well organized tour for us. As our travel was very short we were able to maximize what we experienced in Dubai and Abu Dhabi because of the well planned and thought of tours by our guide. She was very helpful, going beyond what was expected of her. Considering that we were such a large group, she was able to handle our tours with flying colors. We would definitely recommend her to all our friends bound for the United Emirates.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ferdi. Thanks for the kind review. It was such a pleasure meeting you and the family I hope you will visit again. Regards to all

Shehnaaz was prompt, friendly and knowledgable. She gave us a very concise and complete tour of Abuudhabi and Dubai and we enjoyed our time with her. She is very friendly and easy to understand with a very good command over the English language. I would highly recommend her for future travellers seeking a culturally immersive experience in the UAE.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bankim Thanks for your review. Hope you and Zarina are well. Look forward to receiving you again to UAE Regards Shehnaaz
