I and my partner went on Desert Safari in Dubai with Gulf Ventures and we had an amazing experience. Firstly I would like to appreciate our driver KHALED MOHAMMED HADI without him the safari would have been boring. He is someone who will make your experience that you will never forget. The only thing that we didn't enjoy was the... More

I had a good experience with gulf ventures right from the first time I contacted them. We booked a desert safari through them and it didn't disappoint. The staff, especially Sarath and our driver Khalid, are wonderful people. Khalid, who was from Yemen, was very enthusiastic and didn't waste a second to explain to us the history of the Arabian...

My family and friends attends the Xmas camp and it was a massive success. Every one of my guests was really impressed. The children all had a ball and were exhausted by the end of the evening. Food was good. Facilities great. Nice location with easy access to the main road for the end of the evening. Absolutely fantastic evening... More

Gulf Ventures Afternoon Safari Tour Review Jan 2015 Picked up on time at 2:45 by Arif - v knowledgeable, sincere and professional. Once on the road (45 mins in mild traffic to get out to the dunes) we were given the run down for the afternoon/evening. We sighed about having the stop at the 'shop' to wait for the other... More

Just went on the tour today. The best part was a smaller crowd and a guide that outlined all that would happen before we took off - including the initial restroom stop at the tourist kiosk. Highlights were many: * great guide / driver - sincere and professional with good knowledge and great attitude * smaller group * great pace... More

Just returned to London from a Christmas holiday in Dubai with the family. My brother who lives in Dubai recommended Gulf Ventures and helped book everything. It was the highlight of an amazing holiday. The driver was friendly and helpful as we had two adults and 4 children in our group. Riding up the dunes was brilliant fun and we... More

I had the opportunity to book Gulf Ventures private car safari. Booking was easy. Our driver, Ejaz picked us up right on time and whole safari was great. Ejaz was very informative, great tour guide and extremely experienced driver so the dune bashing was great. Stopped three times on the way to the camp; first one was for tyre deflation... More

Having been on several dubai desert experiences, can honestly hold this out as head & shoulders above the rest. Superb location and facilities, really excellent staff, and not another 4x4 in sight (a welcome change to the crowded dunes experienced with other operators). Saleh & his team were brilliant, they could not have done more to help us relax &... More

A wonderful evening in an atmospheric desert environment. We were looked after by friendly knowledgable staff. The campsite was traditional and full of character, with modern facilities in the heart of the desert, but within 20 Minutes of downtown Dubai. A lovely way to experience a taste of local traditions.
