This is my second time using Barti--he is terrific! We had a tour of Dubai and a tour of Abu Dhabi, both were flawless, very interesting and well organized. I would give Barti, my highest recommendation.

Barti gave us an unforgettable 3-day tour of UAE—Fujairah, Dubai & Abu Dhabi. We have been fortunate to enjoy countless tours around the globe, and Barti is without question the best of the best. His knowledge is extraordinary, and his perspective on this fascinating and beautiful country and culture is both passionate and objective. Thank you, Barti, for being a delightful teacher and ambassador!

Alison RogersUnited States
We did the private tour of Abu Dhabi with Barti and enjoyed it very much! We found him to have extensive knowledge about Abu Dhabi, the UAE and all sorts of other things that we asked him. He was very patient, made great suggestions, let us decide things that were more important for us to do during the day and steered us to a super lunch. We would absolutely go on a tour with Barti again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Vivian Thank you. Regards Barti
We spent a fabulous 2 days with Barti who couldn't do enough for us to ensure we saw what we could in our 2 days in Dubai. He was extremely polite and well organised and so knowledgeable about everything in the UAE. All of the sites and activity wish list was arranged so that we got to see and do everything - Dune driving, Abu Dhabi mosque, The Palm, Falcon Hospital, as well as driving to see Dubai marina, cbd, the worlds tallest building and so much more. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lyle and Ian Your kind words are appreciated. It was indeed a pleasure meeting you both and being your guide for the two days in Dubai. Thank you for choosing me and Thank you for your generosity. Regards Barti

Derek PrestonUnited Kingdom
Barti is a well informed Indian gentleman with an excellent grasp of English; his tour covers the main sights of Abu Dhabi and is well supported by a wealth of information to enhance the experience. With his own driver and a people carrier, Barti is able to commit fully to engaging with his clients and we appreciated his manner throughout: never intrusive, Barti allowed us enough time to explore alone but was always present to set the scene beforehand and answer questions as they arose. Thank you, Barti!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Derek It was a pleasure meeting you and your family and being your guide. Thank you for your kind words and generosity. I always wanted England to win the World cup and ever since I started watching Football world cup 30 years ago and I realize how much it means to its people. Just may be this time as they say "It's coming home" Regards Barti
Susan JohnsonUnited States
Barti and his driver provided a comfortable, informative and memorable trip to Abu Dhabi. He had good ideas about what to see (the date and vegetable market) and also was flexible with what we wanted to see. Of course the mosque was a must but also wanted to see the Emirate Palace hotel and the Louvre Museum. Could have done without the Art Market, but at least we were able to get through that quickly. Barti had good insights and lots of up to date information. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan It was a pleasure meeting you and your wonderful husband. Thank you for choosing me as your tour guide. Thank you for your kind words. Regards Barti

Very nice guide, we saw all the highlights and he 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. I would book him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bastian, It was a pleasure meeting you both and thank you for your kind words. Hope to see you again. Regards Barti
Mary Susan BarnhillUnited States
Our trip to Abu Dhabi was so interesting because of all the facts that Barti relayed to us. We knew more about Dubai when we left the states than we did about Abu Dhabi. We learned about the culture, the emirates, the rulers, the way of life, the change of color on the pavement, etc. Again, he asked what we wanted to see and planned the day with those things in mind. He added several other spots for us to see as there wasn't much information on them in the guide books. Barti & Ali are the best!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, Thank you very much for the second day tour with us in Abu Dhabi. Thank you for your generosity.. Regards Barti

Harry H.United States
There is no problem at all with Barti. See my review of his Dubai tour. But there is just not that much to see and do in Abu Dhabi. The Sheikh Zayed Mosque was interesting and worth the time to see that. But that left the entire afternoon with little to see or do. Abu Dhabi is basically just a modern city with some fancy hotels. We were back in Dubai by mid-afternoon. If possible, just book a trip to the mosque.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Harry, Thank you for choosing me as your guide and it was a pleasure meeting you all. Regards Barti
We really enjoyed our day with Barti. The Day was very well planned and we were able to see everything that we had wanted to see. Our time at the mosque was very good and Barti provided excellent information.
Cynthia KnuthUnited States
The tour to Abu Dhabi on November 25, 2015 with Barti. I would give Barti R. a 5 for the entire tour. He was polite, knowledgeable and has excellent English (important as we are from the USA). My only comment is that we did not enjoy the Iranian Museum - because the person in the museum who guided us was so aggressive with his sales pitch on the rugs that it became very annoying. And then he acted so annoyed when we did not buy anything. The museum was excellent. Regards, Cynthia Knuth
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cynthia, Thank you. I will speak to the Iranian Museum management about this behavior of one of their staff since it was only a brief stop. Hope you all had a nice time in UAE. Regards Barti
Bradley JensenUnited States
Excellent tour experience. Barti was my guide and he was fantastic. He answered all my questions about Dubai and the UAE. He is very knowledgeable and insightful. I learned a lot, much more than I could on my own. He also had excellent tour guide skills - very polite, professional, and respectful; suggested certain locations for taking photos; appropriately monitored the time to keep on schedule without feeling rushed; and gave suggestions on how I could save money on some of the activities.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bradley, It was a pleasure meeting you. I learnt from you and not to forget sitting in a brand new Bentley car for the first time for me thanks to you. Thank you for your generosity. Regards Barti
Tim MatherUnited States
A very nice and informative day with Barti. I was able to set the agenda as I wanted it, move at my pace, and have a gracious and informative Barti to guide me through my tour of the city. And don't miss the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital! A great addition that Barti handles too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tim, Thank you very much for choosing me as your guide during your trip in Abu Dhabi and I learnt so much from you and it was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for your kind words. Regards Barti
