We loved the trip very much.
+It was my 3rd trip to the desert however I can say it was the nicest one. We enjoyed it to the maximum.
Our VIP guests from Azerbaijan enjoyed it a lot. Our driver Javid took us to the best places and gave us great ideas for pictures. Even before coming to the desert he helped our guests to find the National dresses for the memory and for nice photos.
Javid is very helpful. The ride in dunes was very exciting and full of adrenaline.
We will definitely advice to our friends and colleagues.
Thank you very much!

We had a great time with Mohammad. He was a super friendly and knowledgeable guide. His driving skills were amazing over the dunes which was both exciting and felt safe at the same time.
Camel tour was short but quite enough to be honest. It was fun to sit on a camel and ride it for a short time but the 5-10 minutes that we got was just perfect.
Quad bike was also fun, we rode for about 30-mins. That part of the tour could have been a bit longer but it was fun to just try it out and we were quite happy afterwards.
Dune bashing / Sand boarding was also fun.

The best part of the tour was definitely Mohammads driving skills over the dunes and seeing the actual desert. He was also a very good guide and talked a lot about Qatar , the Qataris, the city of Doha and the neighbourhoods which was interesting and fun at the same time.

I really recommend taking this trip!

A very good day overall. I enjoyed the dune bashing, sand boarding and inland sea. Our driver (Ahmed) was very good. He was careful on the dunes and where it was safe we were shooting over the sand. The sand boarding was fun in the way down but not so fun climbing back up! At least I can say I have climbed a desert dune now. The inland sea was picturesque and you can see Saudi Arabia on the other side. Seeing the singing sand dunes was an unexpected extra too.

I think the camel riding part of the day could be improved- the description does say short (5-10 min) camel ride, but I thought it would at least be a short walk on the camels in the local area. Really, it was just a picture opportunity. You get on the camel and they walk you outside the compound so there is a sand dune in your background and take some pictures.

The food was a good and the sea line beach was a little opportunity to sunbathe at the end. We didn’t swim though because we saw stingrays in the shallows.

Overall highly recommended and with a few tweaks I would have given 5 stars.

We had a great day together with our private guide Ali! We got to see different sides of Doha, including the Grand Mosque and the National Museum. Ali was full of positive energy and was able to answer all our questions about Doha but also on a more private level which was very appreciated! We can strongly recommend Ali as your guide in Doha!

We took the quickie tour with Sharif and Khalid. They were excellent guides. Very accommodating, skilled and extremely helpful. They went out of their way to assist us and return an item we thought we had lost. I would highly recommend the company and both guides.

We just finished our tour with Sadiq who took us on a tour of the fort of Al Zubarah, Khor, and other ruins in North Qatar. Our guide, Sadiq was very knowledgeable of the history and took his time explaining the history of the area. Great learning experience and very enjoyable to visit each area. Highly recommend when visiting the beautiful country Qatar!

Imran and Ali are the best tour guides in Doha and the surrounding areas. These two gentleman are very friendly, they treat you as a friend or family. They made sure I experienced everything, and provided me with other amenities like water, tea and snacks. I am forever grateful for their services. Mohammed was good as well, he stopped by to say hello while we were sightseeing. I highly recommend golden tours to anyone planning to visit Doha and surrounding areas

Private tours hinge on the guide. In this case, Mohammad Hussain gave us four hours of magical memories that we will never forget.

The tour picked us up at the Sheraton hotel - Mohammad was waiting for us when we arrived at the concierge desk 5 minutes ahead of time - and drove us out of the city. He instructed us about cultural sites we were passing as well as the special attributes of the stadiums that we could see from the highway.

Because our tour took place in the winter, there were many campgrounds in the desert and he shared stories about the way Qatari families camp through the cooler months.

His introduction of the 4-wheeler rides was met with glee by my wife and with skepticism by me, her stick-in-the-mud husband. But I finally agreed and the 30 minutes we spent in the dunes on our 4-wheelers were instructional, exhilarating, and downright fun. Mohammad took our phones and recorded videos of my wife and I frolicking up and down the dunes with smiles that never went away.

We made it to the Inland Sea after a couple of heart-pounding sideways slides down huge dunes (50 meters? 70 meters?) and Mohammad has never rolled his vehicle - we felt completely safe (as our hearts burst out of our chests with excitement).

As the sun set on the Inland Sea and Saudi Arabia, Mohammad urged us to take off our shoes and let the sand sift through our toes. The experience grounded us in the beauty of the region and of Qatar's powder-white sand desert.

After sunset, Mohammad stopped at a lovely camp and offered a meal and refreshments with the campers. His hospitality was remarkable.

We arrived back at the Sheraton under a night sky that we will never forget.

NOTE: The afternoon tours are the best for the views - sunset, etc.

This was an excellent tour of Qatar. Our guide, Imran, was very informative and knowledgeable about the history and culture of the region. He was happy to answer questions and show us around. Zubara was definitely worth visiting. Highly recommend.

We were picked up from our place in Doha. Driver had phoned in advance and confirmed the pick up time. He was there early. It took about an hour to drive out to the safari venue and on route Ahmed (the driver) was kind enough to point out landmarks and answer any questions we had. This in itself was good for a new visitor to Doha. The venue is quite basic but has a real buzz about it with desert vehicles, buggies, camels, souk tents all around. We paid for a camel ride, fun but quite brief so this is really just a photo opportunity and worth the money. We then set out into the desert on what turned out to be a fun and exciting ride! Ahmed is clearly a skilful and accomplished driver. The sand dune safari lasts about two hours and includes a stop at the coast. Whilst the ride is exciting it is also great to experience the natural serenity of the desert in contrast to the incredible modernity of central Doha. Well worth doing for any visitor to Qatar.
