We had a great time with Jawith (I hope that's the correct spelling). Obviously, we had an opportunity to see all of the sites in Doha. But what was particularly impressive was Jawith's knowledge and openness about the country and city. He went the extra mile and arranged a place where we could get some takeaway food before catching our onward flight. A great experience and a great person!

Excellent tour of Doha-perfect for a quick layover, saw a little bit of everything. Our tour guide Javid was very friendly, knowledgeable, on time and attentive to us. We enjoyed it all but the Dhow cruise was the best part.

Great! When you book ask for MR. QANDEEL BILAL you won’t be disappointed. By the way, he also provided us with wifi in his SUV (which we needed to check the status of the results of our COVID test). :-)Doc

We, as a couple, very much enjoyed the Doha city tour with our guide Amir in his comfortable car. He was very knowledgeable and friendly and made all efforts for us.. We can highly recommend the tour!

It was fantastic to have a local taking you around and to be able to find out a bit more about the country.
