Full description
This special tour will take you to the past of Qatar. From where it all began. The northern part of Qatar, which plays a great role in the country’s rich cultural history. Starting the tour with Al Khor’s harbor, the country's center for pearl diving & fishing in the old times. And old ship repairing and renovating yard. After that you will visit Al-Thakira mangroves. Which is one of the hidden gem of Qatar. Al-Thakhira mangroves forest is among Qatar’s oldest and largest forests. And then you will visit Al Zubara Fort. This 20th century fort is the youngest and most prominent feature of the Al Zubarah Archaeological Site, a UNESCO World Heritage site. A pristine example of a typical Arab fort, its one-meter-thick walls warded off invaders and helped keep rooms cool during the hot summer. Originally built by Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani in 1938 to serve as a Coast Guard station, the Zubara Fort now serves as a museum displaying a varied collection of exhibits and artworks, with a focus on contemporary topical archaeological findings. The fort, which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in recognition for its preservation and as a unique example of a formative period, is the perfect place for fans of Middle Eastern history to learn more about military life in Qatar in the 18th and 19th centuries. After all this, you will also be able to see an old traditional Qatari village.

Mr Zeenatullah arrived early to take my husband & I on our 4 hour tour of Doha. Our relaxing drive in his spacious, pleasantly air conditioned car was a delight as we sipped hot Chai bought by Mr Z. We were shown off the beaten track wonders that are a photographer's dream. Mr Z is a courteous, honorable man who gives 100% to his guests. He is knowledgeable & takes great care to explain the sights. As we had left something behind at our motel, Mr Z offered to drop us back at the motel after our tour & then dropped us at our shopping destination in his own time. He is a most generous man. We had a wonderful day with Mr Z & we highly recommend him. John & Sue.

We really enjoyed the tour with our guide Mehti, he was very communicative and was able to tell us a lot about the history. He listened to and fulfilled all of our requests. Cool drinks were available and the car was clean. Mehti is a very pleasant person and I would have liked to have done all the tours with him. :)
