What we do

Gulf Adventure Tourism (GAT) occupies a unique space in the tourism world. We are not a large volume provider. We do not sell pre-packaged trips. Simply – we create bespoke experiences with adventure-minded individuals and groups that go beyond mere tourism. These adventures that we create with our clients are wholistic experiences that have physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual dimensions. Upon completing an adventure, our goal is that each participant will have grown in each of these dimensions. Our goal is that each participant will better understand themselves and the people that they interacted with. It is our belief that these goals cannot be met without the support and buy in from indigenous service providers.

How it works

One of our most prized relationships is the relationship that we will have with our local providers. We cannot offer authentic, local experiences without your expertise. Our goal is to make sure that the vast majority of the revenue goes to local companies, in KSA. Our facilitators will plan each adventure. Once settled, we will bring the entire experience to our local partners to price. We will outsource to our local partners all elements of the experience from logistics to trip execution. Each experience will have GAT facilitators on a ratio of 10:1. For every 10 participants we will supply one facilitator. These facilitators have the responsibility to make sure that the trip is executed according to the contract. Our facilitators will have expertise in the field required (eg climbing), will be well versed in the local culture, and will meet minimum language requirements. Our facilitators are paid by our clients and will not be a financial burden on the local provider, essentially you gain an advocate at no extra charge. Simply – we provide paying clients while providing the experts needed to ensure maximum safety and compliance while allowing you, the local provider, the opportunity to show off your core competencies, culture and country to uniquely appreciative clients.
