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.

My wife and I booked a "private desert safari with a private dune dinner" last week, and we had the most amazing and very special experience. I have been on many desert safaris in Dubai with several different companies (having lived in Dubai for 17 years), but this trip was really special, as Gulf Ventures handled all the small details...

We are back in New Zealand after a wonderful Dubai holiday. We explored many things in our 8 days in the city and surrounds. The climax was the trip into the desert with Gulf Ventures Ltd.

We booked two tours with Alvin of Gulf Ventures and are so glad we did. We did a guided tour of the city which we felt was a more cost effective option than the hop on hop off bus considering you have a much more personalised experience. Our driver (yoseph) was punctual picking us up. We had to drive to... More

Gulf Ventures gave an amazing experience in Desert. Our vehicle was roller costing in RED sand dunes, it was a great fun. GV team and drivers are so friendly. It is worth of spending an evening in dessert with GV team. The private camp was so personalised to your needs. It is not crowded with lot of guests. On the... More
