Private tour, you see the most important things in the shortest possible time. Wishes are taken care of. This tour is quite cheap but the quality is good. The camel ride is only 5min (spoilers) but in this heat it's all about the experience and the photo. :-)

Gives a brilliant insight of Qatar and the surrounding areas. All the teams were friendly and buses accurate on timings for collections. The water is a great idea . I would definitely recommend this.
