Fantastic way to see the city sights in 4 hours

We had a private guide to take us on a 4 hour cultural city tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and provided a lot of background and information about Doha.

Good however the guide was soft spoken and I was in the back of car and didn’t hear him much .

Wonderful tour arround Doha City. Very experimented guide. Very good price. Best Regards
