My tour guide Shambhu was extremely knowledgeable of Doha and Qatari history down to the fine detail. He has fantastic English that helps with the experience. He messaged me well before pick up to make it go as smoothly as possible. The tour of Doha was eye-opening and fantastic. I highly recommend it for everyone. The food that Shambhu introduced me to was next level. I look forward to coming back.

We took the 'Private Doha City Tour and Desert Safari Combo' to spend a day in Qatar. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the desert south of Doha. First, we got to ride a camel.That was a very short trip but enough in the heat of the day. We then went for some dune bashing. It was a thrilling experience, noticing that the driver knew exactly what he was doing. We then went to the Inland Sea where we could see the boarder to Saudi across the water. Arriving back in Doha we were taken to the Museum of Islamic Art, spending an hour admiring the riches of the museum. We had a quick lunch at the cafe (not included) before reuniting with the guide who then took us on a tour of Doha. The tour ended at the Souk where we went first to the horse stables and then to a falcon shop. Finally, we took a walk through the souk. We appreciated being guided by a 'local' we were not harassed by all the sales people as you would be on your own. A very nice day and well worth recommending.

This tour was a fantastic way to experience Doha. Wazir as our tour guide gave very good information and was flexible with the tour, allowing us to spend time seeing what we wanted to see and the order in which we experienced this. Excellent day! Highly recommend the double tour of city and desert.
