What people are saying about Katara Cultural Village

Our experience with them has been wonderful, our guide (Sadiq) speaks perfect English, and has an exquisite treatment that has made our visit to Doha so nice. He knows perfectly both the country and the culture, has a very notorious ease in the treatment, and has made our stay something extraordinary. Sadiq has been punctual, generous in the time that has exceeded even the corded without charging a penny more even though we offered it and at all times has been attentive in the service. We fully recommend him and wish him every success in his life on behalf of Yanira and myself. We will always have a beautiful memory of this city and the kind guide who accompanied us on this trip.

My husband and I were very impressed and pleased with our experience during our 9-hour stopover in Doha! Communication was smooth, efficient, and very punctual upon our arrival in the airport. Our guide allowed for plenty of time for us to get back to the airport and go through security while ensuring all of our priorities for our tour were met- including trying local tea, having a delicious authentic dinner, and seeing multiple different sites around the city! Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a taste of Doha with limited time.

We had a Fanta time with our guide QANDEEL BILAL who was very knowledgeable. We added an additional tour to the north of Qatar and he suggest we move the show boat cruise to the evening so we could get the full beauty of the Qatar night skyline

My guide was professional, pleasant and on time. Took me to many photo stops and included was a visit to 4 small museums that I enjoyed. Would recommend this tour if you have a long layover in Doha. You can skip the meal and eat on your own.

We enjoyed our tour very much. It gives you a nice impression of Doha and Sadiq is a very good guide!
