Departure Time

4:00 PM
Choose to visit Souk Waqif in Doha or Al Wakra Souk in advance, and after Doha hotel pickup, travel to your chosen destination by air-conditioned vehicle. Bottled water and sodas are provided for your refreshment in the vehicle.

Reincarnated from a Bedouin livestock market, Souk Waqif’s maze-like lanes and restored Arabian houses make it one of Doha’s cultural showpieces. Hear about its history from your guide and be introduced to some interesting stores, selling everything from Qatari crafts to jewelry, spices and fabrics.

Maybe visit a falconry shop to learn about Bedouin falconry, and perhaps get the chance to handle and photograph one of the beautiful birds. Enjoy free time to browse and buy, and perhaps catch a folk music or dancing display or see donkeys in traditional, patterned Qatari saddles.

Alternatively, head south from Doha to the seafront Souk Waqif in Al Wakra. Explore the shops at this traditional-style souk, while discovering its past as a Bedouin trading area from your guide. Enjoy independent shopping and strolling time, and perhaps enjoy a drink or refreshments (own expense) at a café along the scenic corniche.

Your trip finishes after your souk visit with a hotel drop-off.

The tour gave us an insight into the life in Doha - past, present and future. Our guide was fantastic. This is an ideal tour to understand the effects of Qatar government to make Doha a great city on the world map. Unforgettable scenes are the marina with jet skiers, amphitheater among other things
