Our guide Sabuh (we are no longer sure whether the name is correct ...) guided us confidently by car and on foot through Doha and the districts. We were picked up at the exit from the port, where the shuttle bus stopped. We were too early and then later unfortunately waited at the staff parking lot of the museum, which was wrong - but Sabuh tracked us down (a short note on the voucher or a more precise picture of the meeting point is missing if you don't have WiFi or can use the mobile data for communication) In such a small group tour you learn a lot more than on an excursion with a large tour group ... Unfortunately the sea was too rough and the boat tour was canceled ... But here too our guide got into it Stuff laid that we didn't really miss them - Thank you for this great afternoon!

Our guide, Shambhu, contacted us via Whatsapp on the day of the tour. Pick up at the hotel went smoothly. He then supplied us with water directly and explained the rough course of the tour. Since we had done part of it ourselves the day before, he spontaneously offered us 1-2 alternatives. He told us a lot about the history of Doha and its development. He answered and explained all of our questions. A great tour with a great guide!

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!
