Kuwait has very few places to visit as a tourist. The grand mosque is the highlight. We found our guide to be very knowledgeable and gracious. Make sure you inquire in advance a good time and day to visit.

The Grand Mosque of Kuwait is a real working mosque, not a tourist attraction like some I've visited. It's beautiful, but not ostentatious. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgable, informative, patiently and enthusiastically answered all questions. You must not miss this experience when in Kuwait.

Tour can easily consume 90 minutes. Women must... More
