An absolute must do adventure here in Qatar! Many blessings to you, your wife, and your five sons Amir!!

Wow!!!! Where do I start? Mohammad was prompt and early picking me up from the hotel. Didn’t know if I would enjoy the tour alone, but I absolutely loved it. Had my personal tour guide. Went with the full package; the quad, camel, and dune bashing. Even had a chance to encounter wild camels. Amazing experience!!! Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Your adventure begins when you’re picked up from your Doha hotel and begin heading north for around 40 kilometers. Your first stop will be the Umm Salal Fortress, a tower built for Sheikh Jasim Bin Mohammed Al-Thani’s residence in the late 19th century. This amazing building is closed to the public as it's still occupied, but you’ll have the chance to admire the unique structure from the outside. Next, you’ll visit Al Zubarah, an important archaeological site made famous by its old fort. A square-shaped site with circular towers in three of its corners and a rectangular tower in the fourth, this fascinating fort-cum-museum was built in 1938 during the rule of Sheikh Abdullah Bin Jassim Al-Thani and was erected upon the ruins of a neighboring fort. You’ll then move on to Al Ruwais to discover the Dhow Harbor. Here you’ll take a short break at Ruwais beach to relax and enjoy the fresh...
Guide (Hussein) was well knowledged, of full hospitality and funny. The tour was managed on time and fully covered items originally requested. Hussein’s explanation in the fort and fast developing Doha city gave us good additional insights that self guided or guide books can not give. Unexpected ‘Indian-style’ tea services and stop over at the local truffle stall gave us lively travel experiences (because of private tour?) Clearly and politely ask him what you want. He will make his best efforts to realize it unless it’s really possible. Enjoy Qatar and enjoy Doha!

Very nice tour with our multi-language guide, who knew a lot about the food and the restaurants of Granada. A few nibbles of jamon and cheese, and a tasting o olive oil were followed by the visit to 2 excellent traditional restaurants. A very friendly introduction to the town's gastronomy.
There are only two of us on the tour so it was nice to get a more personalized tour. Our guide Yosin did a great job of providing the history of Granada as well as the different types of tapas and the history of tapas.
