  • Private full-day Doha cultural tour
  • Discover Doha’s culture at Katara, the Museum of Islamic Arts, and Sheikh Faisal Museum
  • Visit the Al Shahaniya camel track to learn about camel racing
  • Explore The Pearl, Doha’s Mediterranean-style residential and shopping island
  • Have lunch at the restored, traditional Souq Waqif
  • Includes entrance fees, bottled water, and sodas
  • Private transport with hotel pickup and drop-off, plus personalized attention from a private guide
Meet your private guide at your Doha hotel, and hop inside your private, air-conditioned vehicle, equipped with bottled water and sodas on board.

Then, take in the views as you travel to your first stop: Katara. This modern cultural center celebrates Qatar’s artistic heritage and the traditions and arts of other global communities. Head inside to see the art exhibitions, gardens, souk, amphitheater, and opera house at your own pace.

Continue to The Pearl, Doha’s huge, oyster-shaped artificial island and stylish shopping, residential and dining destination. Take in the Mediterranean-inspired walkways, marinas, and waterways, and hear how the island was built on a former pearl diving site.

Next, drive out of town to the Al Shahaniya Camel Racetrack, the setting for Qatari camel race events. Known as the ‘sport of sheikhs,’ this age-old Arabian pursuit can be traced back to the 7th century, although the racetrack now uses robot jockeys rather than the child jockeys of old. With luck, catch a race or training session, watching as these remarkable animals reach speeds of up to 40 mph (65 kph).

Then, visit the vast Sheikh Faisal Museum, home to a private collection of 15,000 historical Qatari artifacts. Stroll around the displays of pottery, weaponry, jewelry, boats, coins, and vintage cars, building a picture of the country’s rich heritage.

After lunch at the Souq Waqif, a restored, maze-like bazaar that began life as a Bedouin market, move on to the Museum of Islamic Arts on Doha’s corniche.

This stunning museum houses intriguing displays of Islamic art spanning 1,400 years. Spend time admiring the ceramics, jewelry, manuscripts, and textiles, and then finish your tour with a late afternoon hotel drop-off.
