I am traveling solo to Doha in January 2014. I have a few questions, mostly budget-related, that I'm hoping to get solved.
My budget is hopefully between 1000-1200 USD for a one week stay. I am a young American female, living in Istanbul. I am quite adventurous, and this is not my first time traveling alone, but will be my first time traveling in an Arab country.
Firstly, I am trying to decide whether to book through a travel agency. I already have my tickets, but nothing for hotels and tours so far. If anyone has any advice on Qatari travel agencies or tour companies, please send it my way. Though I am traveling alone, if I use a tour agency, I do NOT want to book a private tour.
Secondly, I want to do the overnight desert dune tour, the camel racing tour, and the north of Qatar tour. Are the last two things that I could do by myself, without a tour guide?
Lastly, I have done lots of research, but if you have any other advices, do send them my way!
Thanks in advance,
