          Great city tour in Doha with Sam
          We had a private tour with Sam and he did an excellent job of showing us around the city. He was very knowledgeable and provided lots of interesting background information. The tour is a perfect mix of walking, driving and boat tour. We enjoyed it a lot and highly recommend this tour with Sam.

          Doha Experience
          Dajid Khan was very professional and friendly. He knows his stuff. The tour itself is very enjoyable and rich in culture. I highly recommend the sand dunes experience. He was a superb driver.

          THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!
          I highly recommend everyone book a tour if you have a layover in Doha. This is what happened to me. I had an 8 hour layover and I did not want to spend such a long time at the airport. I am so grateful I found Doha transit and tours. From the beginning it was such a smooth process. Easy online booking process (I booked it short notice) I am so happy it worked out perfectly. I was able to get the confirmation within minutes. The day of the tour my tour guide, Sam, reached out to me directly and explained everything with so much clarity and ease. As a solo female traveler, feeling secure is a priority for me. Sam made the experience even better by being such a welcoming person. After pick up, he took us around the city and showed me all the key points. I was so impressed with his knowledge and hospitality. I even requested to stop by the mall and he made it happen for me. He took me to the souq and it was incredible. I got to pet a falcon, eat delicious knafeh, and shop for a magnet. I didn’t know what to expect whenever I booked this tour and honestly I had no idea what Doha was like. I simply took the chance to get out of the airport and I am soooo happy I did. Sam showed me the highlights of Doha and it really encouraged me to come back and visit for vacation. I cannot express enough how amazing the tour was!!! Book your experience today!!

          Great time with Yam
          Booked directly after some bartering Picked up by Yam in clean car. He was very polite and helpful. Good English. We had a 3m baby with us and was very understanding and flexible. Saw all the major sites with lots of information. Fun and interactive. Visited during Ramadan so also helped us to get some food at the end of the tour before dropping us back! Highly recommend a tour with Yam

          Wonderful guide
          Our group of 4 visited Doha as part of a cruise and we booked a full day excursion with Doha Transit and Tours, a half-day excursion to the desert and inland sea following by a half-day city sightseeing tour. Our guide for the morning safari was Nawafi and we had a wonderful time with him. He was a super competent and careful driver who managed to give us a great dune driving experience while still being mindful of my elderly parents' backs. To top it all off, he worked a small miracle: The restaurant we were supposed to have lunch at - the 360 at the Torch - told their office last minute they didn't have any openings, yet he persuaded them to give us a table. A great experience and highly recommended!

          A trip to remember
          Saleh proposes an affordable and exciting tour for those who don’t know the desert. He also offers a custom made tour for those who want a bit more sensation during the sand bashing (ask for the adventure tour). He was very attentive during our tour and showed us more than what we expected; we all enjoyed being in/ driving through the desert with Saleh!

          Qatar Outside Doha Experience
          Sam was a great guide, he shared enlightening comments about the city and the tour, the west coast is impressive and we even had a bit of an off road experience. Visit to the camel racetrack was lots of fun, so many camels gathered for their training at the racetrack and also crossing the main road, loved the ride.

          Wonderful and worth!
          This was a very satisfactory and useful tour. Our guide Sam was genuinely interested and very enthusiastic. Very well spent a few hour followed by a short boat ride with beautiful views of doha skyline in the evening.

          Perfect Tour
          Perfect tour to see a lot of the city. We took the night tour (5 pm) highly recommend this time. Sam was a great tour guide. You see the city at night, take a dhow boat ride, Souq Waqif (market place), Katara, the Pearl and a few other stops! A definite tour to take when you are in Doha.

          Very fun
          Shahzeb very good, great experience. Bring a towel to get sand off of your feet after the beach. Amazing though I’d do it again if I had a chance to do so

        We had an absolutely terrible experience and would advise others to STAY AWAY. This is not a tour, it's a very expensive Uber.

        We contacted the tour operator the night before our tour via whatsapp since we had not heard from them. All seemed well, we were told our guide would contact us in the morning.

        The next morning our guide contacted us, with a very awkward text exchange and told us to be ready 30 minutes before our tour started, which we were unhappy with, but we complied. However, he was late by almost 30 mins. First strike.

        The kid, Tariq, showed up and asked us what we wanted to do. Umm, excuse me? I was extremely confused and should have just got out of the car.

        I showed him the tour we booked and then he started driving. He had terrible communication and had very limited knowledge of what was going on. We started going to Doha port and sat in traffic for about 30 mins since a cruise ship pulled in. We asked him what was here and he told us to let him know when we wanted to take pictures. Then he continued to ask what we wanted to do next. Strike two.

        After the traffic we told him to just take us to the Souk Waqif. He did, and spent another 30 mins looking for parking on the first level of the parking garage, instead of going to the lower levels which we recommended. He eventually went to the lower level and spent additional time trying to park close to the door instead of just taking one of the hundred empty spots. Once in the Souk we asked him to show us around, he declined and said to just wander and do as we please. We continuously lost him and at one point found him shopping for watches. Strike three.

        We then asked to go to Katara and if he could tell us what it was, he says "a place to walk around" lol. Strike four. It started raining and we told him to just take us back to our hotel.

        It was obsoletely ridiculous to call this a tour. It was more like a very expensive uber. He just drove us around for two hours and offered to take pictures. He also took terrible pictures. Based off past reviews we suspect this is a one off, maybe the tour operator forgot about us and over booked due to the cruise ships that pulled in and they asked a young sibling to drive us around. Either way I highly recommend everyone book with someone else.
