        Amazing tour
        Got in the tour at the very last moment. Contact them thru whatsapp and were super friendly and open to make a last minute reservation. All stops were very interesting and our guide,Rvinder Kaur, explained all the history and culture with precision and finesse, making it a engaging and enjoyable tour. Also, she is a great photographer! A little hot this time of the year but they provide water and juice, what was amazing as I forgot my water and although there is not a lot of walking, fluids are needed.

        Good tour.
        I did the FULL DAY TOUR ULTIMATE BAHRAIN which was very good. Covered a lot of the main tourist attractions. Tour was not rushed and we were given enough time in each place including a break for lunch. Transport was small but comfortable and there was complimentary WIFI too which was handy. Tour operator was easy to communicate with. I learnt a lot and really enjoyed it. Guide was lovely and friendly. The first half of the tour concentrates on the city area itself and then the afternoon covers the desert. They will collect you from your hotel and bring you back at the end. We started just before 09:00 and were back by 17:15. Small group. They will also provide complimentary water and juices. Lunch is bought at your own expense. Bahrain is a small country with not that much to see. Also, public transport is not really great so you will spend a lot of money otherwise with a taxi commuting between each location. This tour is a good option, as it covers all the main attractions at a reasonable price. I learnt and saw a lot.

        Top rated tour
        This trip basically covers the importance tourist places. The circuit is the highlight but we couldn’t see the track as they were preparing it for the race. The oil wells and the saline camping is not a sight to be missed. The your guide Ms Kaur was really nice and friendly.

        Great overview of all the highlights of Bahrain
        I was picked up right on time with a nice air conditioned little bus. There was free juice and water all day and free wifi on bus. Tour was great! Ravinder Kaur explained all the stops, gave history, and even let us stop for a few extra photo opportunities. If you only have one day in Bahrain, do this tour and you will see all the highlights.

        Nice overview of Bahrain
        A very nice tour covering a lot of places worth seeing! Ravinder the guide was very professional in messaging me that due to rain and traffic they will be 10-15 late for pick up from the hotel. She kept updating me along the way, which was very useful. The trip was very comfortable. The only stop that I felt was a bit of a disappointment for me was the Souk. Not very nice as a place and I got significantly overcharged for some dates, nuts & spices. Better buy small souvenirs from the airport where they have a proper listed price.

        Excellent Tour!
        The tour was wonderful. Our tour guide Ravinder was great, full of energy and couldn’t do enough for us. She was so knowledgeable about each stop on the tour, and we even had some extra stops thrown in which we weren’t expecting such as the first ever Gulf Oil Drill. A lovely afternoon from start to finish!

        Best way to see the Bahrain best visit locations
        Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about her what her job consisted of, her knowledge was second to none, she went into full detail not just about locations visited, but also what could be seen on route between locations, water or juice was offered regularly, air conditioning was regulated for passengers. So we would just like to thank Ravinda for a perfect guided bus tour of Bahrain 😁😁👍👍

        Good value for money
        Good experience overall. Good value for money. Friendly, knowledgeable guide. Informative tour covering all the highlights of Bahrain. Maybe the addition of the pearl trail would be good. Sad to see the cruelty towards the camels though.

      We have done our trip with Alysia and she tried to make the trip nice, unfortunately she is not a tour guide by nature. We rushed through the different sights and comparing this tour with 4 other city trips in the Arabic Countries, this was the one we would not book anymore. Also comparing the price, it is far too expensive in comparison to other city trips that cost nearly half of the price.

      My friend found this tour online. It was a nice day and reasonable cost. Our guide, Ludmela was very knowledgable and friendly. She answered all our questions and was very pleasant. Our driver, Amire was also great. Highly recommend, a great way to see a lot of things in a short period of time. Take sunscreen for the outdoor parts, the sun and heat are beyond brutal.

      That was a short but very nice experience which allowed me to know more about Bahrain and its history. I highly recommend it to all tourists visiting this small country. Husain is a very nice guide and you will enjoy his company for sure.

      I was picked up promptly , driver Amir was great. His english was better then the Tour guides. Katrina was nice too ( tourguide) but like i said her english could have been better. And it seemed so rush rush, esp the museum and other parts. So that was a bit of a let down. :( also i was the only person in a 30 seater bus as no one else booked this trip on that day could have bought a smaller van.

      Thank you for your review. Our guest's feedback always helps us elevate the quality of our services. You're right, having a 30 seat bus all to yourself for a tour might be a bit too much. Sometimes larger groups cancel last minute and we don't have time to switch vehicles. Luckily we just acquired a new fleet of wonderful mini-buses that we know you'd love. Looking forward to seeing you on one of our tours in the near future so we have the opportunity to win a 5 star review from you. P.S. Ameer & Katerina send their warm regards.

      In four hours this tour quickly covered the highlights of Bahrain with a guide that was very knowledgeable about the rich history and culture of the area. Overall a fun and interesting tour. Book a couple of days in advance if possible to ensure pick-up time and location are confirmed in advance.

      This tour was brilliant. There was only two of us with Alicia the tour guide. The tour of the mosque was so informative. I’ve never been given a tour around a mosque before and the lady was really helpful and told me things I didn’t know. Alicia was so knowledgeable and really interested in us as well. She took us round the museum which was great because she pointed out specific areas and made it much more interesting than just walking round on your own. The driver was also really friendly as well
