What To Expect
Al Zubara Fort
For our ancestors, Al Zubarah was a thriving pearl fishing and trading port. Now it’s Qatar’s largest heritage site, with its impressive city wall, ancient residential palaces and houses, markets, industrial areas and mosques.
It’s one of the best-preserved examples of an 18th and 19th century Gulf merchant town and in 2013 was named a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Also spelled Al Khawr means "sea on threesides" in Arabic. Older than Doha but far smaller in size. Al Khor is located an easy 50 kilometres to the north of Doha. It used to be the center of the pearling industry in Qatar but lost its importance after the introduction of cultured pearls.

This was an amazing tour! You get to see beautiful landscapes and much of Qatar.
But the best thing was travelling with Adnan. He is the best guide I've ever had. I learnt a lot from him, and he was kind, friendly, patient, and flexible with all my requests. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Only great memories of this day!
Amazing tour to discover more about Qatar
I wanted to see more than Doha in Qatar and I wasn't disappointed. With Adnan, an experienced guide and a careful driver, we drove from Doha to the north.
With many stops on the way.
He gave me good explanations of every important buildings, sites and the culture of Qatar. We visited a fishing market, we stopped to see the mangroves, the Zubara Fort and an abandonned Qatari village.
It was very interesting and no stress with him, he takes the time that we need.
I recommand Adnan as a guide, I really enjoyed talking and joking with him (he has a very good sense of humor).
