Doha: City Tour and Dhow Boat Cruise
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 4 hours
We booked this trip very last minute as we ended up with a 24 hour layover due to a delayed flight, and although when we were booking it seemed quite expensive, it was worth it and we really enjoyed. Our guide Sambu was absolutely great and has so much knowledge that he shared with us as we visited the city. He took us to a few different parts of the city and gave us plenty of time in each stop. It felt very comprehensive and really gave us a great insight in a short amount of time. We’d highly recommend this tour, as well as Sambu as a guide. Thanks very much!
The tour was very enjoyable and my guide, jacob (sorry for the spelling!) was very patient and attentive. I am not giving 5 stars as the booking with the local agency was a nightmare and they only confirmed when getyourguide got in touch with them. Pick up point instructions were confusing (they kept referring to gate 4 rather than exit 4) and they were not able to clarify or would not give me the driver contact number. Luckily everything went well in the end.
first ,we didn't have the time schedule for each stop second ,lines are not operated fully.I used the red line half day as the green line was next day thirdly , the green line was supposed to pass by the meshireb museums ( but didn't ) I bought the voucher online the day before my departure but I was disappointed that I didn't make the best of it last but not least , why the driver is not announcing the stop area ( not everyone is using the headsets)
You can pick up the bus from ANY of the stops even though in the GetYourGuide app it says to go to the meeting point to actually board the bus. This misunderstanding on our part and on the part of our hotel concierge led us to wasting about 45 minutes trying to track down the bus. If you stay at the Hilton Doha there is a stop directly outside your hotel; you DO NOT need to walk to City Center Mall to board the bus.
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.
