Dadhabai Travel: 40 years of excellence

Dadabhai Travel started out as a single office in 1981 with a vision to become the epitome of success in the travel and tourism industry.

Their core values – integrity, customer care, teamwork, and reliability – have been at the heart of everything they do as a team and as individuals. Through such, they have established themselves to become a well-known brand that radiates optimum trust and satisfaction among customers.

For its 40th anniversary on 18th May 2021, key team members and business partners at Dadabhai Travel have shared some messages:

“On this momentous day, I look back with pride and satisfaction. I also look forward with optimism and confidence, as the Business Friendly approach
and clear message from the leaders of our country helps us plan our future strategy.

Our gradual and sustained growth is undeniably attributable to our team and the support and continued patronage of our clients who are some of the most prestigious financial and commercial institutions in Bahrain.”

“It has been a tough but educational journey over the last 40 years. What started as two-man travel agency in a 200 sq. ft office, is today Bahrain’s largest travel agency with a team of over 100 people spread over 17 locations and across the GCC with an amazing team of 250 dedicated and committed professionals.

Under the guidance of our farsighted and visionary Chairman, Mr. Mohammed Dadabhai, I have been very privileged to have witnessed quite a few landmark developments in our company’s history, but the one that gives me the most satisfaction is when we moved into our own premises – an iconic heritage building in the heart of Manama – which became our head office in which we centralize the entire operations of our travel agency.”
