    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.

    Great way to learn there is more to Qatar than just Doha. Kahn our driver/guide was very knowledgeable and gave us just the right amount of information. He didn’t feel he need to talk all the time. Vehicle in excellent condition and his driving was exemplary. We had more than enough time to wander at our leisure and he was always available to answers any questions we had. Good supply of cold water. SMS messages the evening before to confirm details much appreciated. Picked us up right on the agreed time.

    BEL TOUR.

    It was an interesting tour and our guide was wonderful. Unfortunately the problems arose at the time of booking in Qatar when, upon confirmation of the tour, I was not given the opportunity to choose the time of departure from those available and all my emails did not receive the desired results until late evening the day before departure. With a lot of stress that on vacation is all you want to avoid. It is the first time that I feel bad with you. Check that the options allow you to choose the time: when I did it was not possible and being in Qatar I didn't know who to call.
