Definetely a good trip! Our guide Abdullatif was very talkative, answered all our questions and was a good driver too. Tour starts with 50mins drive to camel riding spot. Actual time on camel was under 5 minutes but we honestly did not expect more and enjoyed it anyway. Straight after we head to dunes. It was fun and great experience even though it was not as crazy and adrenaline as some might expect. We took pics on a nice spots and also enjoyed swim in Persian Gulf sea. What was bit surprising is fact that we actually did not make it to inland sea as we were told it s too close zo S.Arab borders and it s not safe. On the way back driver gave us a lift where we wanted. Overall tour was bit shorter too (3,5hrs) but we enjoyed it and would recommend it to everyone. We started our tour at 10am and weather and everything was just fine. All in all I d go 4,5 star if possible as description of what s included is not as accurate but definetely worth our time anyways

Booked this trip last minute with my sister since we are transiting in Doha and it was the best decision we made. Our guide, Jawid (sorry if I spelled it wrong) was really friendly, accommodating, and fun! He made the trip so lovely and answered all our curious questions. The whole experience itself was memorable and truly an experience you have to go through at least once in your life! I love that it’s private and so we can go at our own pace. Thank you so much!

The tour was well organized, at least before the start I doubted whether I would be picked up from the destination because the guide did not contact me in advance. The equipment like the quad or the jeep were in top condition. Small extra requests were received without any problems.

A must if you’re visiting Doha! We got some amazing pictures and had the most beautiful day with our lovely driver Zishan :) truly one of our favourite days in Doha, the most amazing memories!

It was an extraordinary tour with a professional driver who was provided us lots of funny moments. We really enjoyed it and recommend to everyone!
