Booked this trip last minute with my sister since we are transiting in Doha and it was the best decision we made. Our guide, Jawid (sorry if I spelled it wrong) was really friendly, accommodating, and fun! He made the trip so lovely and answered all our curious questions. The whole experience itself was memorable and truly an experience you have to go through at least once in your life! I love that it’s private and so we can go at our own pace. Thank you so much!

Was picked up at the hotel by our guide who drove us to the Dow and gave us some history of the city on the way. lovely sunset cruise around the bay and he pointed out the sights. It was too hot for the Corniche walk so he drove us to Gallerlies Lafayette and around katara culture. It was a great trip and good value for money

One of the most beautiful experience I have ever seen. Tour guide was very helpful and understanding. Thank you so much.

The experience was great! I have so much fun during the trip! Really recommend for anyone who visit Qatar to try this.
