Amir was a very informed guide who was happy to share his knowledge with us. He told many things about the country and people so the trip was quite informative. The sights themselves are a bit more modest, the fort is quite small and nondescript, the mangrove island had no water so it was rather unimpressive to look at. In the off-season, this excursion is probably not recommended. But since the guide really went to a lot of trouble to make something out of everything, we are still quite satisfied.

We made this excursion from Doha to the far north of the region through expanding areas, old fishermen villages and archaeological sites. Khan the guide from Falcon tours was really kind and helpful and told us a lot about the past and present of this country. Quick and accurate booking. Experience to try. Thank you very much Khan.

I thoroughly enjoyed this - the mangroves of Al Khor and harbour were great. I loved the drive seeing the scenery and learning about the history of Qatar and Zubara and pearl diving.

Habeeb our guide was on top, he arranged the tour so that I could see as many stadiums of the cdm2022 as possible. Outside of Al Khor not much to see but very nice.

Great guide who explained a lot about the history of Qatar. It was very worth it!
