We had a great time with Jawith (I hope that's the correct spelling). Obviously, we had an opportunity to see all of the sites in Doha. But what was particularly impressive was Jawith's knowledge and openness about the country and city. He went the extra mile and arranged a place where we could get some takeaway food before catching our onward flight. A great experience and a great person!

Excellent tour of Doha-perfect for a quick layover, saw a little bit of everything. Our tour guide Javid was very friendly, knowledgeable, on time and attentive to us. We enjoyed it all but the Dhow cruise was the best part.

Fantastic tour, ask for Amir. Air-conditioned vehicle, exceptional service, he adjusted the booking to our circumstances, showed us all the best places and was just a top bloke! 11/10

I enjoyed my tour with Faisal. He’s a knowledgeable guide, good driver, and a pleasant personality. He was a good adviser at the souq
