Guide (Hussein) was well knowledged, of full hospitality and funny. The tour was managed on time and fully covered items originally requested. Hussein’s explanation in the fort and fast developing Doha city gave us good additional insights that self guided or guide books can not give. Unexpected ‘Indian-style’ tea services and stop over at the local truffle stall gave us lively travel experiences (because of private tour?) Clearly and politely ask him what you want. He will make his best efforts to realize it unless it’s really possible. Enjoy Qatar and enjoy Doha!

I think we toured some of Doha's main attractions. The visit to the National Museum of Qatar was much better than I expected. It is completely worth the money of the entrance. I did not see the Museum of Islamic Art but I was not sorry. Everything went very well and as planned. I recommend without reservation. Thanks

The tour guide and driver tried their best to introduce the characteristics of each place. In four hours, I have experienced many Doha characteristics. The support team on this website is very efficient! Reply fast

With Guide Kerstin it was very exciting and interesting. Super guide highly recommended.

Compact information about this small country and Doha. Recommendable.
