Join us for a 4 hour comprehensive tour for the culture curious as we take you through the golden roots of Islamic heritage in Qatar. We pick you up from your preferred location within Doha city to embark on this mystical journey through some of the most unique mosques as well as the old alleys of Souq Waqif.
Our first stop is the Katara Mosque which is an architectural masterpiece that reflects the amazing diversity in Islamic art. After a guided tour here we proceed to the beautiful Katara Cultural Village. It was built in a fusion of oriental architectural and retro-romantic style, pretty differently from most of Doha’s charming new cultural buildings. We follow this tour with a visit to magnificent Museum of Islamic Arts. This five story museum represents Islamic art from three continents over 1,400 years. This collection is highly acclaimed and recognized as one of the biggest Islamic art collections. This trip is perfect for all tourists looking for an insight into the mystical Islamic culture in Qatar. The last stop of this journey is the century old Souq Waqif which roots the traditions and historical identity of the country. We take a walking tour here while you enjoy the sights, sounds & smells of the maze-like market. We end this tour by arranging a convenient drop off to your preferred location within Doha city.
Bring on Board:
As it is a mosque visit, kindly observe modest dressing. Men should wear long pants and plain shirts without messages or slogans. Women should wear ankle-length skirts or pants. Sleeves should reach to each wrist and the hair should be covered by a scarf. Pants or skirts that are too revealing, clingy, or tight should not be worn.
