What to expect
  • Meet your private guide at your Dubai hotel and set off by private, air-conditioned vehicle for Al Fahidi, the city's oldest quarter. Stroll the lanes to see the wind tower houses, and learn how the area was inhabited by Persian merchants during the 1800s. Visit the Coffee Museum to uncover the origins of this age-old beverage, and learn about local coffee-drinking etiquette. Next, continue to the Al Shindagha neighborhood, where Dubai’s royals settled in the 1900s, and visit Sheik Saeed Al-Maktoum House, once a home of the ruling Al-Maktoum family, and now a museum. View the artifacts that chart Dubai’s 20th-century history here, and ride an abra across Dubai Creek to Deira’s Gold and Spice souks. After perusing both of these bustling bazaars, look around the Al-Farooq Omar Bin Al-Khattab Mosque, one of Dubai’s most beautiful buildings. Afterward, see the glitzy yachts and high-rises at Dubai Marina, and visit Dubai Mall, the world’s largest retail mall. Gaze at some of the marine creatures of Dubai Aquarium through the mall viewing windows, and then head for the Burj Khalifa. Marvel at this soaring tower — the world’s highest — from outside before your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.

Wonderful Dubai tour
Sep 2021 • Solo
We had great time with Lucy, she customized our tour to us and it was absolutely lovely. She was talking and describing things a lot, but also gave us space to take pictures and look at the sights in peace. Wonderful tour!

Best Tour Guide! See Dubai with a Real Pro -Lucy!
Lucy is more than excellent! She was early, super friendly, waiting for us at our pick up spot. Spanish and English tour. Her driver was clean, polite, a good driver, and knew how to get to places fast. We saw old Dubai, took a river boat, saw new Dubai, the cool photo spots and she knew information about everything. You can tell she has lived there for a long time, everything was smooth, not rushed, she was on our time, we were instant friends no awkward moments. I have my best Dubai pics because of Lucy. Super hot day, but we still made our photo spots and when we went to the Market area she was there to keep the negotiating quick and in our favor. Thank you so much! Thank you for your patience also. Taking us to eat, shop, take pics, and all on our schedule! 5 stars!!! I will see you again when I return to Dubai. Toured July 31, 2021

Perfect way to explore Dubai at night!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Sruthy Gomez provided a great evening tour. My husband and I had a great time and felt so comfortable with Sruthy - like hanging out with an old friend. She was raised in Dubai and had so many great stories to share about how Dubai has evolved. She also educated us about local customs and made sure we were comfortable with the dos and don'ts! We felt extremely safe wandering around Dubai after dark. It was a great way to get a sense of what was worth further exploring on our next layover (tomorrow!) I personally loved our visit to the spice souk. There are so many assertive shopkeepers - It would have been intimidating without her! If you have a chance to tour with Sruthy - do it!

Great night tour with Gomez
Feb 2020
Gomez led our group of 8 on an entertaining and informative late-night
layover tour of Dubai. His knowledge of the country, and its history,
combined with his great sense of humor held our attention all night.
Gomez is a pro and I highly recommend him to anyone visiting Dubai.

Excellent guide and tour!
Feb 2020
I am so very pleased with my tour with Sruthy! Excellent communication
from my first questions before booking to after saying good night and
receiving a thank you message with a great photo to share with family
back home. I was concerned about my energy level for the tour after 14
hours of flying but Sruthy customized the tour and made sure I saw
everything on my list! I encourage everyone to book their tour with
this charming, considerate and knowledgeable woman!

A fun and truly local experience
Spending 5 hours with someone you don't know can be a bit daunting ...
but not with Sruthy! From the moment Sruthy came to pick us up at our
hotel it was smiles and comfort all afternoon. We covered so much
ground and saw so many things but nothing felt rushed. We loved the
spice souk (leaving with spices from Sruthy's local shop), tried
different foods introduced to us by Sruthy and learned about how the
souks operate (Sruthy helped us barter!). Then the abra boat trip
across the creek, old Dubai, the coral houses (fascinating), the art
show was lovely inside the original buildings. Sruthy had so many
stories to share and clearly loves history, is incredibly respectful
of the many cultures and religious practices in Dubai. Sruthy made us
feel welcome in the mosque we visited and was able to talk with ease
about cultural make up of the city. New Dubai (with my zig zag
building!) was just amazing to see and to understand why there are so
many twin buildings! Nothing was too much trouble for Sruthy, and our
driver was lovely also. We ended our tour by the fountain show and had
dinner at a restaurant recommended by Sruthy. Karen, my best friend,
and I had such a lovely afternoon with Sruthy - we absolute 100%
recommend you hang out with her when you are in Dubai. Thank you for
the fab experience of Dubai Sruthy - you are a true local!

A Great Private Tour! I'm very satisfied!
Jan 2020 • Solo
I, a Japanese woman who traveled alone, asked Gomez for Dubai city tour during my 10-hours transit at Dubai. He picked me up at airport and took me to all tourism spots. I could see everything I wanted to see.

I personally asked Gomez to take me to
Dubai museum, which was not included in an original plan, but he organized it for me.
He is really kind, funny, friendly, flexible and informative. In addition, he's a very good camera man, and he took many beautiful professional photos of me.
It was really safe and comfortable trip, and I am very satisfied!
I recommend this tour to those traveling to Dubai, especially a woman who will travel alone like me.
