Adnan picked us up ahead of time at our hotel. The car was immaculate and comfortable. He had plenty of water and added a ‘tea’ stop.
He went above and beyond to show us the planned sights and several more. (Including getting close to one of the World Cup stadions) We learned a lot about the area and the people in North Qatar. We highly recommend this tour and Adnan, our guide!
