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.

Many km and almost nothing to see. Very disappointing tour. Luckily my guide was a very, very competent guy, also on the history of Qatar. I spent the almost 5 hours of the tour in a pleasant and very interesting way just because of him.
