Great way to learn there is more to Qatar than just Doha. Kahn our driver/guide was very knowledgeable and gave us just the right amount of information. He didn’t feel he need to talk all the time. Vehicle in excellent condition and his driving was exemplary. We had more than enough time to wander at our leisure and he was always available to answers any questions we had. Good supply of cold water. SMS messages the evening before to confirm details much appreciated. Picked us up right on the agreed time.

We made this excursion from Doha to the far north of the region through expanding areas, old fishermen villages and archaeological sites. Khan the guide from Falcon tours was really kind and helpful and told us a lot about the past and present of this country. Quick and accurate booking. Experience to try. Thank you very much Khan.

I thoroughly enjoyed this - the mangroves of Al Khor and harbour were great. I loved the drive seeing the scenery and learning about the history of Qatar and Zubara and pearl diving.

Wonderful day out exploring the historic sites of Qatar.

Absolutely loved everything about our tour and day out in Qatar. Thank you for the memories!

Enjoyed the whole experience the fishing boats to the fort
