The tour guide is the Gem of the tour. Hmoud was on time for pick up and he tried to connect with you with his knowledge around the city. He had lots of experience with the roads at the desert. I felt safe on the tour although it’s very windy. It was fun as Hmoud was driving through the sand dune. He would not force you to do activities that you didn’t want to do and he would accompany you if you decided to do so. Overall the experience was amazing. Hmoud is also a great photographer!

It was a fantastic trip! I truly enjoyed my time! The driver's soo amazing, was making funny jokes and entertaining properly. He took a bunch of cool pictures of me (and the other traveller from the group). Highly recommend this tour, you won't regret

Ahmad is an excellent guide. He puts safety first and at the same time made the trip one of the best adventure i have in Doha.
