Booked a private day tour with our driver Syed. Syed was a fantastic host who went over and beyond his duty to make it a day to never forget.

Syed is an extremely skilled driver so rest assured you are in the best of hands! Once the excursion was complete, we enjoyed a fantastic meal at the camp

10/10 would highly recommend!

We did the full day dune bashing desert safari with them and had a blast! You don’t realize how big and massive the desert is until you are out there in the middle of it with all dunes and sand in every direction you look. It’s like another planet! We went all up and down the dunes and went all the way to the Inland Sea where you can see into Saudi Arabia! The dune bashing was about 2 hours and then we went to a cool desert camp where we had lunch and beach time for the afternoon. It was a very windy day when we went so we didn’t swim, but the views and beautiful turquoise blue water never got tiring to look at. They had tons of cabanas you could use as well. This was a great day out in the desert for sure!

QIA is brand to contact for desert tours. Theirl hospitality and staff are very friendly and provide fast response towards your queries.

Captains were friendly. We travelled with family as a group with infant and it was awesome. I strongly recommend QIA for your trip as Trip advisor...

On July 13, 2018 we had full day desert safari with QIA. Unfortunately, our pleasure ended up in the emergency section in Hamad hospital myself and my son 8 years old. After the driver dropped us to the camp, he explained how the things will go and added that there is camel ride free for whoever would like to try. The most important that the camels are wild and the person who looks after these camels from QIA side has NO control on these camels and he insisted on us to pay QR 20/ person to ride the camel (NOT FREE). I ride the camel with my son (8 years old) and after few steps the camel started jumping and kicking and that person didn't even take any action to control the camel. Anyway, the camel threw us high and both of us flew away (height about 3 M). We were laying down with my son on the ground, no breath, passed out, and full in pain and nobody from the workers there even called the emergency. The most important for them was that nobody should know about what happened. The person who is in charge for the camels threatened us that his brother is a police officer and easily he can let him drag us away. The driver took us by the same safari car to the city and it doesn't matter for them whether we need an ambulance or not. Ambulance took me and my son from the city to Hamad hospital and we spent our night there for health inspection. NO ONE FROM QIA CAME TO US IN THE HOSPITAL. Just the driver called us by phone one time. Already 8 days passed after the accident and we are spending our time in the hospitals with daily 4 types of pain killer.

Tour on 20th September 2018. Our tour was totally disappointing and there was no adventure. We had a driver but he certainly didn't do any guiding. We were picked up from our hotel and after introducing himself the driver just drove with the radio up high and changing channels on the radio. He didn't offer any information, only answered questions asked and because he kept turning up the radio he couldn't be heard in the back. We had to ask him to turn it down. After a fuel stop and then a stop to lower tyres he drove into the dunes. He did ask once if we wanted to stop for a photo when we commented on a spot quite close to the sea but it was like an afterthought. Then he drove to the Saudi border we got out there & then we got back in and he drove to the camp but didn't say anything. We didn't know where we were or why we were stopping and had to ask. He just said this is the camp mam. That was about 11am and he said we would be there to 3.30. There was absolutely nothing to do except go for a swim and there was nobody else there except the staff. So after lunch we just asked to go back. there was no sand boarding, no activities, nothing.
I booked this tour as a birthday gift for my husband on the day of his birthday which made it all the more disappointing.

We have booked a full day program with QIA. Everything was smooth and the ride was fun until we went back to the camp for lunch and have some rest. A room was assigned to us and we were asked to leave our personal items there. At the time we decided to move, we have noticed that a couple of our personal items ( 2 sunglasses) were stolen from the room although the items were there 10 min earlier. No one except a staff member from QIA have entered the room to clean in order to prepare the room for the next arriving group. QIA Managing director Walid Jaouni was there at the camp and have approached us and asked us to leave and promised to investigate more about the issue and get back to us the next day. No action has been taken from QIA until we called them the next day to follow up yet no positive reply from their side. Mr. Jaouni claims that the person that entered the room has been working with them for the past 3 years and no incident has been previously reported as if he is removing the responsibility from his staff and as if we are making up this story. Although there are pictures that were taken during the tour which shows the sunglasses that were with us.

Hello Sir my deepest apology for you regarding the below matter, and i hope to solve your problem ASAP please note after investigation about all the situation as you mention our manager Mr. Walid was in the camp that day, and when you inform him that you missing two sun glasses from your tent , he asked our staff to clean the tent to check if they will find something or not and he gave you his business card to contact him for update as our procedures to check all the camp again after the guests leave our camp and report any found items to our lost and found department to start to communicate to the guests and after checking everything we didn't found the sun glasses, when you called our manager he inform you to check about the price of the two sunglasses and come back to him so he can issue a cheaque with the amount of the money or to buy same glasses and the answer was you will check about the exact price of the sunglasses and come back to him again , however you didn't call him back my apology one more time for any inconvenience that happen to you and hope to contact soon to solve the problem All the Best AZ

Guide came punctually but barely spoke during our drive to the dunes (except when he was chatting on the telephone.)

Sand bashing was like a gentle roller coaster ride. Wouldnt call it exhilirating but it wasnt boring. Our guide skillfully manipulated the 4WD thru. Car was spacious and clean.

The inland sea visit is just a photo stop taken from the top of the sand dunes. We spent about 5 or 10 min there.

The camp facilities were appalling. My kids commented the bathroom provided was worse than the rural ones they had visited on their mission trip to Cambodia, so imagine the state! I had contemplated doing the overnight stay but really glad I decided against it cos the huts were dank and gross and I didnt even want to step into it to change into my swim gear.

Camel ride costs 20 QAR more for a 100m guide-lead ride which was over in less than 5 min.

Sand boarding was fun but there is no staff to show u how to do it. U just have to figure it out yourself (snow-boards are provided). When we asked the staff said they didnt know how to do it either; they had just seen other guests play there). Also, the sand dune slopes at at most 2 storey high and ends at the flat bit which is littered with animal poo so u may careen straight into dung (gross)

Each guest is given 3 bottles of 330ml mineral water bottles, and 1 soft drink. If u need more water u can refill your bottle at a dispenser.

Dinner was very over-cooked bbq meat - tasteless and chewy. I wouldnt have chosen it if there was a choice but there is none. Its supposed to be buffet style but food runs out if u are at the end of the line (and thats before anyone has had the chance to go back for seconds)

I will not be coming back for this tour again

Sand-boarding: We would like to share that we have a Supervisor in the Camp for the sports/outdoor activities, they are knowledgeable and well trained. Maybe you ask the wrong staff for this activity and we will investigate to make sure that this will not happened again. Inland Sea: The weather in Doha during this month of June (summer) is extremely hot. We give you a short stay in the Inland Sea because we are considering the other participant with Kids and we know that they cannot stay that long on that weather condition. We care more about your welfare. Driver: The driver need to communicate more often to the Lead and Back Leader of the convoy to check if they can make the maneuver specially in the dune bashing. This is their way to check the whole convoy to be safe. Camel Ride: The camp has a large number of participants and we want to accommodate all of you to experience the camel ride. Anyway camel ride cost you $5 only for more than 10 minutes which is 200 meter riding. Bathroom: We make sure that we have Staff that monitoring and maintaining the whole facilities, however, we are trying our best to keep it clean, but we face some issues when there is a large group in the camp. But we will make sure we will keep an eye on this. By this we can make an action to improve our services and your comments will be shared with our team, and we are confident they will find this a source to keep up the great work. We look forward to serving you again soon. Hoping to be of service again on your next trip to Qatar. Best Regards, Gizell

We went on a full day trip with Khojamir as our driver and it was perfect! A very friendly and experienced driver who took us on a full day tour to the inland sea. We had a lot of fun and closed off with a BBQ dinner in the camp. If you're in Doha, don't hesitate and book the tour. You won't regret it.

We spent a perfect day in the desert with our friends! The morning trip was a good time for us to see and enjoy the desert and the beach. The tour was handled professionally. My reservation online was wrong and I changed it easily by calling the company number. Our driver was extremely experienced with his driving skills and even showed us his favorite part of the desert. Lunch was only prepared for us since it was the weekday and the beach and desert were full only on weekends. Highly recommend this experience!
