We had a wonderful afternoon touring the main sights in Doha with Amir, who also gave us interesting and helpful insights into the history and current situation in Qatar. We enjoyed visiting the souq waqif and holding a falcon, seeing the stadiums and learning about the ongoing planning for the 2022 World Cup, and visiting the Villaggio Mall and the Katara Cultural Village.

We had a great afternoon with Shambhu, our friendly tour guide. He was on time to pick us up at our hotel. He showed us all the ineteresting points and explained the history and culture of Qatar / Doha. The tour was well organized by falcon tours. We can recommend falcon tours and Shambhu to every one !!

The guide was very helpful, pleasant and considerate as well as knowledgeable on the city, country and region. He was very respectful of the surroundings and friendly to all those around him. Booking was made simple through the web site and App and the whole process worked well and on time.

It was a great tour with a great guide. We had some really wide ranging conversations about the history/society in Qatar and learned a lot.
