What people are saying about Doha

The desert safari was perfectly organized. We booked the afternoon tour and were picked up on time with a clean car. The guide was very friendly and kept us entertained on the approximately 1-hour drive there and back, so that the journey there was already very entertaining. The camel ride takes about 5-10 minutes, but is very fun for a first experience and was enough for us. The dune bashing and also the sand boarding were very eventful and in between there are always opportunities to take photos. Before we went back, we drove to the Saudi Arabian border and were able to marvel at the starry sky. All in all highly recommended!

A fantastic trip, picked up from our accommodation in a clean comfortable land cruiser. Had a short camel ride, which was enjoyable and not very long. After refreshments taken for an amazing drive through the dunes, exceeded expectations with some proper dune bashing with very steep descents. Superb scenery as well. Finished off with a sled down a dune then a gentler drive back through the dunes to the road home. A definate 10/10 and superb value for money. I have already recommended it to a few of my freinds.

From the booking process, the messaging from our guide about the pick and then the activity itself.......it was brilliant ! The whole activity was as described, with plenty of time doing each element so never felt rushed. Our guide Hmoud was great as well. Totally recommend it.
