What people are saying about Doha

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.

My husband and I went on the tour during the World Cup. Ahmad was very professional, he confirmed the meeting place with us and was able to answer all of our questions about the areas we were visiting. The food choices were excellent and the boat taxi ride was very relaxing and the view was magnificent.
