Amazingly organized trip by Faizan Mirza. He had a vast knowledge of the indigenous culture of the region. His fluency in different languages amazed me and everyone else on the trip.As a tour guide, I think you were phenomenal. With you by our side, I don’t think we could have anything unknown about the country.We were extremely fortunate to have you with us.
Informative and knowledgeable trip

Abudhabi, rich heritage and culture. We enjoyed this trip too much. We had the knowledgeable guide Faizan Mirza. It would not have been possible for us to learn about the rich heritage and dynamic culture of the places we went to on our own. You explained everything beautiful and we came to know about various interesting things as tourists. We will always remember the great time we had on this vacation.
Best guide faizan

We would like to say a big THANK YOU To Faizan for making our trip to Dubai in Nov 22 so special!

We originally had 2 pre-arranged trips booked (Abu Dhabi and Miracle Gardens/Global Village) but after our first meeting with Faizan we went on to arrange other things throughout the week (Dubai Frame, Gold Souk, Marina Dinner Cruise!).

Prior to arriving in Dubai and throughout our stay, we communicated with Faizan via WhatsApp and can honestly say he is totally trustworthy and very knowledgeable and passionate about his country. We learned so much from him!

What a lovely, respectful, trustworthy gentleman your are Faizan and we would certainly use your services again when in Dubai and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to others!

We will surely book with you again for our next tour.....

Problem was no break for lunch or to have a drink. No water provided.
Picked up over one hour late but tour was not extended by one hour. Visit to mosque was rushed and tour guide should have been with us like other groups
