I had 18 hours between flights in Dubai and wanted to do a few things such as a helicopter tour, go up to the viewing platforms of Burj Khalifa, visit the Dubai Mall, see the Dubai Fountains and visit the Aquarium. Gulf Ventures together with our Swedish travel agent organized this beautifully. It couldn't have been handled better. Very professional... More

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

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
