Try out local flavours and do some bartering in Souq Waqif, see city landmarks on a private tour, and experience Arabian hospitality with a private coffee experience. You’ll also head on a desert adventure to the Inland Sea.


This 5-day Qatar vacation showcases Doha, the Qatari capital, and its blend of futuristic architecture and cultural traditions. It features deluxe accommodations and private-guided tours.

Your trip to Qatar takes you to Doha, the Qatari capital and a city on the rise, which is constantly reinventing itself with a rapidly-rising skyline and impressive array of cultural events. Experience the city as it was before the oil boom with a private tour of Souq Waqif. Explore the labyrinthine markets with a local Qatari guide and discover cultural traditions and local drinks and snacks in the midst of some shopping and bartering. Later, discover the city landmarks on a private tour that takes you from the skyscrapers of the Corniche to the Katara Cultural Village to the manmade island of The Pearl-Qatar.

Another day, board a 4WD vehicle for an adventure into the Arabian desert, where the sand dunes shift and dance beneath the hot sun. You’ll ride across the sand dunes, visit the Inland Sea, and have the chance to ride a camel. Back in Doha, experience Arabian hospitality with a coffee (pronounced “gahwa” in local Arabic) experience at the Cultural House at Souq Waqif Al Wakra. You’ll have another day at leisure in Doha to shop and see some more its highlights, including its wealth of museums.

At the end of your Qatar tour, you’ll connect to the airport for onward travels.
