Ahmed was very attentive and answered any questions. The tour was more by foot as the boat ride came at the end and only 5 minutes so a little disappointing. Generally the food element was good and we worked through five courses at five establishments. At each the food was preselected with no alternative so if you didn't like, you just moved on.

Loads of food, lots of interesting facts about life in Qatar and a short walk around the pearl. The food was all really good and there was plenty of it. Our host Ahmad was very friendly and informative. Nice way to get to know the Pearl and some international foods.

Bassel was a great tour guide. Had good knowledge of the area and of the foods we tried. And the boat side on the sea was beautiful and relaxing. Great views! Would highly recommend this. Only tip for improvement would be a better meeting point. Was quite hard finding the place without the gps on our phones.
