I found the staff incredibly helpful; both on the bus and the ticket kiosk. The information provided (several languages) through provided earbuds was very interesting. In fact, I found myself wanting to hear more. This was my second trip to Doha; thought the overall tour would help me catch items for my next trip - and that it did. Really a great job, handling some challenging customers. Great skills by the staff!

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

Excellent service. Promptly on time and very informative. First day was actually rained out and they rescheduled no problem. Sohil was a great guide.

Hassan was a very good driver and guide. Lots of km covered with all major points plush market walk. Recommendation

I was in Doha on a layover and this was a great way to see the sights and all of Doha in 24 hours.
