It was so great! A guide, named Noufal picked us up at the cruise shop terminal which isn’t nearby. Great Service - thanks!! The Tour was also a highlight; we really enjoyed the camelriding, sandboarding, jeep adventure and so on. Noufal explained a lot, answered all our questions - a really friendly and recommended guide. He took beautiful pictures and helped preserve memories. Thanks at All - we‘ll come back.

A very polite, knowledgeable, and excellent guide/driver, Noufal from India, was our guide/driver. During our tour, he made sure that we had a great time. While travelling with my younger cousin, we shared a ride with a German family, whose parents are doctors and the children are primary school students, and we truly enjoyed their company.

Our guide was called Asim. He really did well! He explained on the way a bit of Qatar. We got a nice thé from him and after went for a camel ride, then dune bashing and some nice stops for pictures. The last stop was the inland sea close to the border of Saudi. Was really worth it!

Puskar was great! I gave us a lot of information about Qatar. He was also very accommodating with adjusting the time of our tour when we got to town earlier than expected. Great customer service

It was fun! Even though the day was a little rainy, still a great adventure!
