Full description
Your adventure begins when you’re picked up from your Doha hotel and begin heading north for around 40 kilometers. Your first stop will be the Umm Salal Fortress, a tower built for Sheikh Jasim Bin Mohammed Al-Thani’s residence in the late 19th century. This amazing building is closed to the public as it's still occupied, but you’ll have the chance to admire the unique structure from the outside.

Next, you’ll visit Al Zubarah, an important archaeological site made famous by its old fort. A square-shaped site with circular towers in three of its corners and a rectangular tower in the fourth, this fascinating fort-cum-museum was built in 1938 during the rule of Sheikh Abdullah Bin Jassim Al-Thani and was erected upon the ruins of a neighboring fort.

You’ll then move on to Al Ruwais to discover the Dhow Harbor. Here you’ll take a short break at Ruwais beach to relax and enjoy the fresh sea breeze. On your way back to Doha, you’ll visit the Al Khor Museum and pass by Al Khor, the second-biggest town in Qatar renowned for its gorgeous harbor and golden beaches.
