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!

Private tour, you see the most important things in the shortest possible time. Wishes are taken care of. This tour is quite cheap but the quality is good. The camel ride is only 5min (spoilers) but in this heat it's all about the experience and the photo. :-)

Gives a brilliant insight of Qatar and the surrounding areas. All the teams were friendly and buses accurate on timings for collections. The water is a great idea . I would definitely recommend this.

It's a perfect tour where you can get to know several sights of DORAH! And the education of employees is a 10!

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