Know More about this tour

Your first visit after your hotel pick-up will be to the historic Shaikh Isa Bin Ali House situated in Bahrain's second city, Muharraq. View the traditional Arab design style where each room directly overlooks an open courtyard and wind tower. The house represents the 19th century construction style using local materials like coral stone, mortar, and palm tree trunks. Look out the antique windows, decorated in ventilated gypsum geometrical designs for which Bahrain was well known. 

Then visit the Shaikh Ebrahim Center. Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, a well-known intellectual in the early part of the 20th century. The Center is home to research and today hosts a series of rotating lectures, exhibitions, and recitals by prominent writers, philosophers and artists from all over the world.

Next you will proceed to the Kurar House. Tour the house and view the beautiful age-old craft of embroidering traditional throbs with gold thread. Downstairs, there’s a leafy courtyard surrounded by rooms displaying handmade garments, while upstairs you can watch women wielding the needle and thread. 

Your last stop will be Muharraq souq that is most well known for its halwa or sweet shops. Watch how the halwa, a sticky sweetmeat, is still made in the traditional way in enormous copper pots, by the halwachi. Visit famous sweetshop, Hussein Mohamed Showaiter Sweets and taste the warm halwa. Cut the sweetness of your treat with a strong cup of fresh, unsweetened qahwa. After you’ve satisfied your sweet tooth, you will be returned to your hotel.
