Great tour
Khanh_D, Feb 2024
It was worth the money. Mahir showed us great parts of Bahrain. Saw all the places as on the review and was in no rush to show us around.
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Great thanks Khanh for the beautiful time we spent together in Bahrain. I enjoyed your accompany. Please accept my best wishes.
Fantastic way to see most of Bahrain in one day with a great tour guide (Maher)
Antoine_E, Jan 2024
The tour guide Maher was awesome and very knowledgeable. He is professional and explains everything very well. He took me to see the main sights of Bahrain, from all the way North at the Bahrain Castle, to almost all the way down at the tree of life. I was in Bahrain for 3 days and he covered most of Bahrain during that day-trip on day 1, so on day 2 I didn't have much left to do :) Places visited: Bahrain skyline, Castle, First Oil pump, Tree of Life, Grand Mosque, Souk, Bab al Bahrain, Museum

A day well spent and enjoyed thoroughly. Maher the tour operator was very nice and took me through the history of Bahrain while we were driving. Car, hospitality was extra ordinary and locations for lunch, coffee, juice were just spot for the day.

A thorough trip to see all of Bahrain
Carter_H, Feb 2023
This was a great tour to learn about Bahrain's history and to see more than just a fort or a museum. We covered a lot of ground, and it was a full day! Maher was very knowledgeable and a wonderful guide. After this 8-hour tour, I feel like I had a good command of the highlights of Bahrain. Highly recommended (even if paying more as a solo traveler).
Response from Host, Feb 2023
What a great compliment Mr Carter. Yes, I enjoyed your accompany, and it was a great day. Please accept my thanks and my regards.

It was a wonderful tour considering the small history bahrain has! My guide Maher was super nice, very informative, punctual, patient and very helpful! He was very detailed and polite too!
A great tour!
Lynnl_K, Sep 2022
The guide was very informative. Since it was so hot, he moved slowly. There were 3 of us. He bought us tea and fresh juice. He also let us take our time at a stop if we wished to do so.
Response from Host, Sep 2022

Jiravot_T, Sep 2022
Our guide Maher, was very knowledgeable, courteous and attentive. He took us to several interesting attractions both ancient and modern ones. Lunch was at a restaurant in Manama souq where you could order any dish from the menu. Water and soft drinks were constantly served during the trip, moreover Maher stopped for fresh juices along the way. We had a very good time and highly recommend the tour whenever you are in Bahrain.

Thank you so much Mr Jiravot for your valuable feedback. It was my pleasure to show you around. Hope to see you again in Bahrain soon.
Tour Exceeds Expectations
ben_b, May 2022
I had limited time in Bahrain and opted for a private tour with Mr Maher. It was nothing short of outstanding. Pickup and drop off were provided and the tour was at my pace despite the many sites covered. I never felt rushed and Mr Maher was knowledgeable and professional, providing insights to the culture, landscape and history of Bahrain. We covered all the sites and more. When Mr Maher noticed I was interested in the burial mounds, he made extra stops for pictures. I found the Tree of Life most captivating and a highlight of the tour. The included Lunch was at a local restaurant. The food was flavorful, and there was much character and ambience to the restaurant. Highly recommended
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you so much Mr Ben for your valuable and detailed feedback. I enjoyed the tour with you as well. Hope to see you again and again in Bahrain. My best regards
Excellent Tour if Bahrain
Rosalyn_H, Dec 2021
This is a great tour to take while in Bahrain. My husband and I enjoyed all of the sites. Maher, our local Bahraini tour guide, was very accommodating, polite, and knowledgeable. He helped us get our PCR test, which is sometimes a hurdle to jump while traveling. The car that he drove us in was very comfortable. The lunch that was included was tasty. A must do when visiting Bahrain!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Thank you so much for giving me a chance to show you around my country. Grateful to your valuable feedback. My best wishes for you and your husband, and happy new year.
VIP tour on a Lovely day
Roushelle_W, Nov 2021
Our guide Maher introduced himself immediately after booking. I had a special request for the lunch that's provided as a guest in my party is Vegan. He was able to offer great solutions that worked out really well. It was lovely to have a guide all to ourselves, we didn't feel rushed. He has a wide knowledge of all thins Bahrain. He was funny and punctual. An all around great tour guide. If you're ever in search of a well versed guide in Bahrain, Maher is your guy.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you so much for your review. I was lucky to meet you all, and show you around. I felt like I was with my brothers and sister. Hope we will meet again one day. My best wishes to you all .
A-Z of Bahrain in one day
afifah_t, Nov 2021
A wonderful day Maher - the tour guide was so well learned and that’s what matter most for me. I learnt so much about history and civilisation from him He is flexible, decent manners easy going I did a solo trip and felt very safe and comfortable
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you Afifah for the good tour we did together. And thank you for the feed back and the wonderful pictures. Hope to see you in another tour soon. Best regards to you and your family.
Amazing! We saw everything and enjoyed the day
Anamaria_I, Nov 2021
We saw F1 track, camels and many other things that we would not have seen if we were on our own or of there were too many people on tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and tailored the trip to our interests. The trip lasted a bit longer than expected because we took many pictures and asked many questions, but it was not a problem for Maher and he made sure that we managed to see everything and that we had a great time. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thanks alot Anamaria for the feedback. It was a great day for me too. Hope to see youagain in Bahrain. my best regards to your beautiful group. And.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY
The best tour ever
Nra_I, Jul 2021
This tour was more than we've expected. It really worth the money so we strongly recommend this program to take part in. Maher - the tour guide- has amazing knowledge. We felt that he really cares about his guests. The program is divers, there is nothing boring. Maher arrived to our hotel in time, the communication was easy with him before travelling. He was patient with us even if we wanted to spend a little bit more time around the souk.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Thank you Nora, Thank you Imi. Realy I enjoyed your accompany, and our time together. Looking forward to welcoming you again in Bahrain. Thank you again
Mahal was an excellent...
Chris_h, Mar 2021
Mahal was an excellent guide. I did not know much about Bahrain so really did not know what to expect. He developed a great itinerary and was knowledgeable, flexible and engaging. He also posted a short personalized video with pictures from the tour on Instagram (with my permission) which was a great touch!
Response from Host, Mar 2021
Good day Chris. It was my pleasure to be your guide. Really I enjoyed the tour with you Wish you luck in your tour in this small world Hope to see you again in Bahrain Stay Safe Thank you so much
