I plan to stay in Doha for one night, there was no place to go, and if I checked in advance, the desert tour looked good, so I tried to participate. The camel-riding experience was very short, but you may experience it once. Off-road in the desert was very interesting. I think that it is less than an hour in time, but it is recommended because it was a tour that you can not experience individually. The only drawback is that you didn't get the water ...

I booked this trip for my mom and dad. Unfortunately, we had to wait for about an hour to be picked up and only, after we called the service hotline. The local operator would not pick up the phone or answer any whatsapp messages. Even the service hotline was not able to reach Falcon Tours. They immediately organised another local guide, however. So this feedback is not for the local operator (they deserve no star at all) but for the fantastic guide Farhad who took such good care of my parents. My mom and dad had a blast and so much fun with him. Although their English is very basic, he entertained them from the beginning to the end and made them such a memorable trip to the desert. Thank you so much Farhad!!!

My husband (34 years old) and I (27 years old) booked this tour the evening before and were then contacted directly via WhatsApp. Sajid (that was the name of our guide) was very nice and picked us up at the hotel on time the next morning. We did the tour with another person, which is pretty nice! It was like a private trip. On request, he took us to quad biking (costs extra, as an external provider) and took our pictures and videos. At every point he was ready to take pictures and answer all questions. So super recommended.
