Very cool sites - mostly all to yourself
Victoria_M, Nov 2019
I very much enjoyed this tour, and my tour guide Abdul Aziz and driver Sultan were very pleasant and knowledgeable. The four sites we went to were almost all deserted except for us, which was pretty cool - made me feel like I was getting to see things most tourists don't. The one thing about the tour is I would have liked to spend time at the Fort Bahrain museum, and there was no real time for that as it was closing when we were wrapping up our tour. But otherwise, highly recommended.

My tour guide. Abdulaziz Hassani, was magnificent...knowledgeable, helpful, joyful. Both tours were the best I have ever been on. Cheers. Michael Shaw

Benjamin F, Dec 2017
Rather disappointing. The company appeared to have forgotten that I had booked, and I had to call about five times after the scheduled pickup time to find out where they were. In the end they were over an hour late. The guide was rather unprofessional and not hugely knowledgable - very often just reading off the notice boards at the sites. He also asked a number of rather uncomfortable questions about religion, which were not wanted. At one site he was soliciting for other business whilst guiding me, and at another he left me to 'look around' whilst chatting to a friend.
