Huda is a very knowledgeable guide, willing to share about her experience and to adapt her tour to client interests. She is very personable and communicates her enthusiasm for Abu Dhabi and its culture in an informative manner. We asked to go to the Louvre in addition to seeing the splendid Mosque and the village heritage museum. She also took us to the local market to understand about the many varieties of dates. She very kindly dropped us at our cruise port and kept to the schedule we requested.

Excellent private tour of Dubai; Shah is a fantastic guide: knowledgeable, obliging, good company. His comfortable car has excellent air conditioning for back-seat passengers as well as those in the front. We spent a superb 6.5 hours with Shah and very highly recommend him.

In April we had a wonderful day (8 hours) with Vinod in Dubai, where we could set the tour in Advance, but could also be advised. He was very punctual and very friendly and also very friendly, in dealing with our 4-year-old daughter. He knows a lot about Dubai (since he lives there already 22 years) and knows the city inside out and has given us a lot of information / details. Through him you can see one or the other corner, away from the tourist stream. He is a super Guide and i can highly recommand him!

Our guide Barti was excellent. Can't recommend him highly enough. Very knowledgeable, nice personality We enjoyed our tour a lot and had every single question answered thoroughly, accurately and in a light hearted fashion. It was a pleasure to spend the day with him.

We booked tour guide Barti well in advance and worked with him to customize our tour of Abu Dhabi. Barti provided the car and excellent driver to drive us from Dubai to Abu Dhabi and return (about an hour and a half each way on very good freeways). We had particularly specified to Barti that we wished to have lunch in Le Café at the Emirates Palace Hotel. We emailed Barti a few days before our visit and he was able to make the reservation (which is essential). Barti has lived in Dubai for many years and his knowledge, both of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, is extensive. He made sure that we arrived early at the Grand Mosque so we were able to get in before the crowds (which are very large most days). There was one stop on the tour at a private gallery which Barti told us sold handicrafts. However, the handicrafts were more in the line of jewellery, fine furniture and gold-threaded carpets. If you do not want this as part of your tour you would be well advised to say so when customizing the tour in advance of your visit. Overall, it was an excellent day and we would highly recommend Barti.
