Established in 1982 in Sharjah, UAE, by H.E. Sheikh Faisal Al Qassemi, Orient Tours has own branch offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Oman. In both United Arab Emirates and the Sultanate of Oman, the company offers a variety of carefully planned tour programs, innovative desert safari trips, overland tours between Dubai and Muscat, tailor-made round trips & study trips, adventurous expeditions, exploring sea-safaris, relaxing dinner-cruises, individual fly & drive programs, and corporate events & launches. A separate Cruise Ship Department provides complete services for cruise ship handling in the United Arab Emirates and in the Sultanate of Oman.
Our multilingual tour guides and drivers are professionally trained on safety and first aid. We were the first tour operator in the Gulf to initiate a Tour Guide Training Seminar to improve the standard of our tour guides. With presently more than 180 direct employees, Orient Tours is considered one of the major and most well established tour companies in the region. In October 2008, Orient Tours’ Chairman Sheikh Faisal Al Qassemi received the Global Achievement Award from the World Travel Award organizers in recognition of his efforts for pioneering tourism into the Arabian Gulf at a ceremony held in Dubai.
Orient Tours was one of the first tour companies in Dubai to obtain the Dubai Department of Tourism’s License to conduct Overland Tourist Safaris.
