Since starting operations in the Arabian Gulf more than two decades ago,...

Since starting operations in the Arabian Gulf more than two decades ago, Alpha Destination Management has grown into a choice that hundreds of clients have tried, tested and partnered with. From hotel bookings, ground handling services and excursions, to cruise management, air charters and VIP travel, Alpha Destination Management is the region’s market leader in terms of annual turnover, its wide network of partners and focus on excellent service.

The company serves traditional inbound markets, as well as being a trailblazer in emerging markets like Latin America and independent post-Soviet states. A pioneer in creating unique products, its helicopter tours from Atlantis The Palm and Port Rashid (servicing cruise passengers) are now considered a “must do” for UAE visitors.

With his partners, current CEO Ghassan Aridi started Alpha Destination Management in 1996 and built it into one of the industry’s most credible brand names, which today controls significant market share of the UAE’s tourism sector. The company is also backed by Mr. Jamal Al Hai, CEO at Dubai Airports.

There are many offers to do desert trips, but I can only say, that Alpha tours provided the most economical, and actually it was great. My son enjoyed it, my wife loved it, and the trip was worth it, just for that. Don't get tricked by much more expensive dessert tours, all pretty alike, hence, Alpha will meet your expectations

We have recently moved to Dubai, and as a part of my Wife's work leaving present, she was given a Voucher for a family Desert Safari with Alpha Tours. The driver (Fadi) was a little late picking us up, due to another couple arriving late at their Pick-Up Point, which he apologised for. This is no way spoilt the day,... More

Very professional and safe. Enjoyable despite slight cloud. Several photos taken by the organiser. I accepted the offer and paid the costs for the pictures to be sent by e-mail later. Today 21 March nothing has been received. Perhaps the organisers are very busy. I hope to have the pictures soon.

We booked the city tour as we were staying outside of Dubai in RAK and wanted to see the city. The tour offered a range of visits to the tourist attractions and was relatively good value for money. We were collected from the hotel at 08.30 and then driven into Dubai. This was a 1 hour 30 drive. The first... More

We booked a desert safari with Alpha tours and was not disappointed. It was worth every penny and was great fun. 30 minutes of driving over the sand dunes, stopping a couple of times and then ending up in a camp where you can ride the camels, sand surf, smoke shisha, have a tattoo, watch dancing and belly dancing and...
