What people are saying about Doha

Loved it! The camel's were sad and seemed exhausted. You only get to sit in them, walk a few feet get a picture walk back and get off. Beware of the bird guy he charges for pictures. Our guide/driver was AMAZING!!! The dunes and sandboarding were sooo much fun and well worth the trip. The beach was an added bonus. I wish I was told we could've brought a towel and clothes and gone in the water! You only have 20/30 minutes but would've been worth it! Definitely recommend!!!

Bassel was a great tour guide. Had good knowledge of the area and of the foods we tried. And the boat side on the sea was beautiful and relaxing. Great views! Would highly recommend this. Only tip for improvement would be a better meeting point. Was quite hard finding the place without the gps on our phones.

Fantastic tour. Ahmad was a great guide a very thoroughly decent person and great company. appreciated him showing us around and showing some good local food! nothing felt rushed..he had plenty of time for us which made for a nice vibe.

our experience was exceptional, but honestly how made it exceptional was our tour guy. Courteous, and very knowledgeable. We learned so much about Qatar’s culture.

Awesome experience. Everything was great and as said in the description. Recomended 100%.
