    I already knew QIT from a former holiday in the Gulf Region but my high expectations were more than fulfilled. Special thanks to my friendly and polite guide JLO. He provided my with a lot of information and background stories regarding the locations we visited. In addition to the described tour program and duration, JLO organised a visit at Baladna farm. He also chose a very beautiful location to see the mangroves at Al Thakira due to his long experience and good knowledge of the country. Many thanks for this interesting and memorable day in your lovely country :)

    Nous avons eu la chance de faire ce tour avec Haitham un guide chauffeur francophone de Tunisie qui en plus d’être fort sympathique, était un puit de connaissance sur l’histoire du Qatar, mais aussi sur les traditions et coutumes qataries. Ce fut une expérience extrêmement intéressante de sortir de DOHA et de visiter une partie méconnue du pays. Tour vivement conseillé.

    It was amazing tour. Visiting this unique places , I got a lot of information about the history of Qatar from smart guide Heitham ,he is professional. We learned not only the history ,additionally the tradition, industry and the interesting facts about Qatar. I really liked the purple island with mangrove forest.

    Tour operator très qualifié pour toutes les excursions et activités imaginables autour de Doha et au Qatar. Je recommande tout particulièrement le guide Haytham qui parle français, de plus très professionnel, très ponctuel et extrêmement sympathique.

    We were wanting to know something about Qatar and this was a good introduction. George, our guide, was knowledgeable and conducted a good tour. We enjoyed 3 entries at the restaurant lunch. We had an extra stop at a high tech dairy. A good experience for us.

    The lunch was great. However, the guide was not that great.... There is no hospitality. His explanation and conversation were very limited. Our tour ended 20 mins before the end of time.

    Tour interessante; Erik, la guida, si è dimostrato gentile e molto preparato, rispondendo con competenza ad ogni mia domanda; ottimo il pranzo; perfetto anche l’autista.

    A must do tour when your in Doha. Qatar doesn't have a long history, so don't expect something like Egypt. Tour guide George is born for this job. You can ask him everything about Qatar (not only history), he's friendly and likes to talk a lot. You have to sit a lot in the car but that's normal for a dessert country.

    Being in Doha, I wanted to see more of Qatar. This company offered a range of tours around the peninsula. As a solo traveler, I did have some sticker shock in seeing the prices (which go down for each additional passenger). Nonetheless, I took the plunge and did the drive to the north of the country. The guide was very informative, pointing out sights in a relaxed manner and patiently answering questions. The tour description mentioned "mangroves", suggesting that guests would go into these areas but we only saw them from a distance. I asked the guide if it would be possible to pass by some other sites on the way back to Doha, including venues on some of other tours. He called his office and they said yes, but I would have to pay full price for another half-day tour. I was not pleased with this. I thought that I could at least get a small discount as I was already in the vehicle and we were only extending the tour by a couple of hours. While I was pleased I got to see what I did (camel farm and racetrack), I found the company rather greedy.

    Realizamos la ruta norte, con visita a un pueblo de pescadores, unos manglares y un antiguo fuerte. Los emplazamientos son atractivos y es interesante conocer algo distinto a Doha si estás de visita en el país. No obstante, el precio del servicio debería incluir algo más que un taxista que te lleva de un lado a otro (con una música electrónica horrible en el coche, a pesar de decirle que nos resultaba molesta y que la quitara). El guía-conductor fue de lo más soso, y no nos explicó nada relevante sobre los emplazamientos que no hubiésemos podido leer en cualquier guía online, Habría salido más a cuenta alquilar un coche. La guinda: cuando el viaje todavía no ha acabado, te medio "obligan" a hacer la review en Tripadvisor.... No sé si el resto de rutas u otro conductor nos harían cambiar de opinión, pero lamentablemente no recomiendo el servicio.
