What people are saying about Doha

The tour guide is the Gem of the tour. Hmoud was on time for pick up and he tried to connect with you with his knowledge around the city. He had lots of experience with the roads at the desert. I felt safe on the tour although it’s very windy. It was fun as Hmoud was driving through the sand dune. He would not force you to do activities that you didn’t want to do and he would accompany you if you decided to do so. Overall the experience was amazing. Hmoud is also a great photographer!

Just the right amount of excitement in driving up and down and over the sand dunes. Super driver! The sand boarding was lots of fun as was the camel ride. Just wish the camel ride could be longer because it was pretty short but still a great experience. The guides were super about taking pictures for you which would have been really hard to do without their help :)

This was a great tour! Adventurous, surprising and Hmoud was a very capable driver who delivered the thrills but I felt safe at all times. Highly recommend if you are spending time in Qatar!

It was a great experience. The tour combines some places and activities which are valuable for the price. The guide was friendly and experienced.

Hmoud was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledable and helpful.
