    Our guide, Prakash, was couteous and very knowledgeable about the sites and the history
    However the sites were not worth the drive

    A very good way to see the North of Qatar and learn about its history and observe the marvelous changes going on.

    This was a very enjoyable trip. We got to see the landscape of Qatar and visit many old and traditional sites. These included a fishing village, pearl diving locations and a famous fort. We also went through various villages and towns, with lunch at one of these. The guide was excellent and he gave a wonderful perspective of the society and the traditional life in Qatar. The trip took us to the top end of the country and to the gulf. The views were quite impressive and we were happy to get away from Doha, which is itself a nice, modern city. The trip is highly recommended.

    This trip involved a journey to the fishing town of Al Khor and then to Zubara fort, which has some interesting historical and archaeological displays and artefacts. Next was a deserted fishing village of Jubail, finishing with lunch in Ruwais. Altogether, a most rewarding trip made even better by our well-informed and helpful guide, Rama.

    You see how is life outside of the capital city Doha and also view some of the past of the region.

    Excellent trip - you do get to see quite a lot of the country and see the difference between the north and the capital city. I was a solo traveller but i was well looked after by my guide and felt very safe
