What to Expect
The tour begins with a visit to the northern region of Qatar to the city of Al Khor. Enjoy a fascinating tour of the Weaponry Museum as well as the Al Khor Diving Museum.
Then head through the wonderful Corniche waterfront promenade of the Qatari capital of Doha. The promenade leads the tour through the city and to the town of Al Zubarah, a ruined and deserted town located on the north western coast of the Qatar peninsula in the Madinat ash Shamal municipality.
Zubarah was once a thriving pearl fishing and trading port and is one of the largest and best preserved examples of an 18th-19th century merchant town in the Gulf. Covering an area of circa 400 hectares, Zubarah is Qatar’s most substantial archaeological site. The site comprises the fortified town with a later inner and an earlier outer wall, a harbor, a sea canal, two screening walls, the fort of Murair, and the more recent Zubarah Fort.
After Zubarah, the tour heads towards Al-Ruwais City, where you will sit down to lunch in the traditional Qatari House “Majlis.” Following lunch, the tour will proceed to see the traditional Qatari Fishing Dhows.
