Know More about this tour

Your personal driver will collect you (or your group of up to four people) from your hotel at 9am in a private, air-conditioned car equipped with mineral water and soft drinks.

Your first stop is Katara, Qatar's cultural village, that's home to an amphitheater, an opera house, a theater, two mosques, and landscaped gardens. Explore at your own pace before you drive to the Pearl, a manmade island sculpted from sand into the shape of an oyster.

Camel racing is an ancient sport in the Arabian desert although today robot jockeys have replaced the child jockeys of old. You'll drive out into the desert for an hour or so to the Al Shahaniya Camel Racetrack, where you may be lucky enough to see the beasts being put through their paces: a sprinting camel can reach speed of up to 40 mph (65 kph).

Discover more of Qatar's heritage at the vast Sheikh Faisal Museum, home to a private collection of 15,000 artifacts that enshrine the nations history.

You'll enjoy an included lunch at the Souq waqif, an atmospheric warren of stalls, stores, cafs, and eateries designed in a 19th-century style, before your last stop, the Museum of Islamic Arts. A world-class museum that's home to Islamic arts, crafts, textiles, ceramics, and jewelry dating back up to 1400 years, it's a great spot to immerse in Arab culture.

Your driver will drop you back at your hotel at 5pm.

    Concierge helped securing several tours with QATAR INTERNATIONAL TOURS, and specifically asked for Haithem to guide us on the WEST TOUR. The tour covered Zekreet, Richard Serra Desert, and much more. His knowledge of the sites and its history made the tour very educational and fun! Suffice to say, near the end of THE WEST TOUR, my friend and I looked at each other and exclaimed "lets have him be our tour guide for the next tour". Next tour - CITY NIGHT MARKET. Haithem arrived to the hotel on time, had cold water ready, and started the tour with points of interest to be covered for the alotted time block. As we drove though the city, he was passionnately explaining in greats details about the various buildings to the left and right side of the road, its history and name of the architects. He possesses a vast amount of knowledge about the city and its culture, making the tour that much more enjoyable! He took time to explained and described things that gave an "ah" moment. With that said, I highly recommend this company and Haithem to anyone who is seeking a tour guide to help them explores more of Qatar, learn more about the history and culture of the Qataris. I hope you will have a great time on the tours. Stay hydrated! One more thing. He is a great photographer. See if you can spot which photo I took with his assistant versus without. If you guess the picture without fencing received helped from him, you are correct! Finally, try camel meat if you are an adventerous eater. He can recommend a good restaurant that serves excellent camel dish.

    The itinerary of the tour is good, covers most of major sightseeing spots in the city. However, the tour guide was not professional at all. He tried to skipped one spot and pass by one spot without asking us though those are included in the itinerary. His information. explanation was very limited. Even we ask questions his answers were always very short no continuous conversation. Also, in our ticket it states that lunch is included but we were told it is not during the tour. After discussion they provided us lunch. I would say the meal was great.

    I had an all day tour with Jay & Albinder. We left from the airport & headed out for a day of exploring. Jay was a fun informative guide. Highlights were the Falcon Souq, Camel Racing & Islamic Arts Museum. You will not be disappointed with this tour!

    I had participated in October 2019 in this great 8-hour private day tour to the most important sights of Doha with my guide Haithem. Haithem is really an incredibly competent and experienced travel guide and provided me with an in-depth overview of Doha and the Qatari culture. He showed a high degree of flexibility and adjusted the tour according to my interests. For all our stops during the tour, he reserved enough time to take photos and answered all my questions with lots of interesting and entertaining stories. We never were in a rush and he even extended the tour to stop at additional places. I can highly recommend this tour for all looking for an in-depth tour with many stops at the most important places of Doha and interesting stories about Qatar and its culture. Haithem, thanks a lot for a fantastic day!!!

    Très bonne journée guidés a la perfection par notre guide Haitem. Nous sommes plongés dans la culture qatarie et nous profitons de l'incroyable connaissance de notre guide pour nous enrichir nous-mêmes culturellement. En tout cas si vous ne savez pas par ou commencer l'exploration je vous conseil ce tour privé ;)

    I got into the airport and PREM was already waiting there for me. He is a great guy, he speaks fluent english and he gave me a good trip to the city. I contacted this company from the link provided here and i requested a private special trip because my flight was arriving at noon, and i had a 20 hour layover, so i went to explore the city for 8 houts starting at the pick up time. They took me to 2 museums, i requested an extra meal when i arrived, which was paid by them, lunch and dinner were included (trip was from 12 to around 8 30 pm). Entrance to the museums as well. The guide knows a lot and answers all questions. Very helpful guide. Strongly recommended
