    The complications of meeting up with our tour guide took away from our enjoyment of this tour. I had communicated with Qatar International Adventures before I left the States to confirm how we were to meet up with our tour guide because coming off a cruise ship, I wanted to be sure we would be picked up at the port as we would be unfamiliar with the area. My instructions were to "take the shuttle bus and meet outside the Port's main gate. Look for sign with Qatar International adventures and our name" That never happened. The guide was waiting at the City Center for us. The shuttle driver had a hard time communicating with us, and thought we needed to be dropped off at a taxi stand. He let us off at a busy intersection with no taxis in sight and insisted we were to wait there for our ride.The phone number given to call on my reservation was wrong and reached a recorded message in two languages to inform me that it was not a working number. So we sat at this busy intersection in Doha trying to figure out what to do. Finally I thought to looked up Qatar International Adventures on the internet and found a number that connected with their office. Then I spent another time span trying to describe which intersection I was at to a woman who spoke with an accent that competed with the traffic at this busy intersection. When we agreed on our location, she wanted us to walk to meet our driver at the Museum of Islamic Arts. I told her we were three senior citizens unwilling to risk getting lost and the tour guide had to pick us up at our location. They finally found us, but we had lost an hour of tour time, and the tour guide was scheduled for another tour at two o'clock. The solution was that he stayed with us until 1:45 and then dropped us off at the last stop, The Museum of Islamic Arts, where we had to catch a shuttle back to the Port. The tour guide had a driver with him which took up available seating. At first we all sat in the back seat which was not comfortable. Then I sat in the seat in back of the back seat, but that was difficult to get in and out of for a senior citizen. The solution that worked was the Tour guide took that seat for the rest of the Tour. It was not the Tour guide's fault that our trip started out bad and he was very apologetic and the rest of the trip proceeded okay. He was very knowledgeable and we managed to visit the sites listed on the itinerary. In the end he gifted us with a knitted scarf from the Olympics.

    Very good tour given by Haithem on my quick visit to Doha. Haithem was very knowledgeable of the city and was very thorough with information. I got to see everything that I wanted and felt like I got my money's worth! Highly recommend!

    The guide arrived on time and asked what we wanted to see, he suggested museums and galleries and we said please drive us around and show us the sights and a marketplace. This was the best tour we have ever been on due to the great guide, he not only showed us the sights but explained the history and the culture of Qatar

    despite the temperature being 42 degrees, the trip was well worth the heat, George was very knowledgeable and we learnt alot, the new pearl is a must to see, and buy off plan if you have the money!

    The guide wasn't that enthusiastic about our tour, and we could have arranged most of this via Uber. The guide wasn't a local, and his insight was limited into the city and the country. His tip to try the fine dining at the Museum of Muslim Arts was a good one.

    Excellent tour. Good photo opportunities along the way. Great way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time.
