While I'd gotten the 96 hour tourist visa, it was a bit difficult to find which operator to take a tour from. Marhaba is simply unable to understand you and Arabian Adventures don't even respond, so finding Gulf Ventures was a stroke of good fortune ! They organized not only the half day City Sightseeing Tour but arranged for it... More

Booked for the sand dunes, sand boarding, camel rides etc. We had a private driver, on time, knew his stuff as when we were driving through Dubai told us a lot of information about various tourist points. The sand dunes was fantastic and the opportunities for the sunset breathtaking. Part of the trip was to go to a camp where... More

I've lived in Dubai for the last 8 years and been and have been on numerous safaris before, none compare to Gulf Ventures. Our driver Khaled Hadi was amazing! His knowledge of local culture and geography is second to none. Once we got to the desert he delivered a dune bashing master class. The camp was beautiful. Very well laid... More

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
