What people are saying about Doha

My husband and I booked this tour on January 6, 2023. The tour guide was professional. Our first stop was Katara, where we enjoyed a warm cup of Karak tea before moving on to The Pearl. Our tour guide drove us to Lusail City and walked around Souq Waqif because it was pouring heavily on the tour day. We enjoyed our time and gained more insight into Qatar's iconic locations. :)

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