    Great trip!
    Ines_R, Jan 2024
    The day with Hasher was a pleasure. The communication before and during the trip was great. The pick-up at the harbour was smooth, even though we were late. The trip itself was relaxed, informative and comfortable. We recommend him to 100%!👌🏻☺️
    Bahrain in a Day

    Short 5hour tour of the places to visit in and around Bahrain. Our guide Ali was accommodating enough to include Tree of Life which not a part of original itinerary. Will recommend to all.
    Well organized tour, great experience
    Surada_W, Jan 2024
    An amazing tour and very well organized. Our tour guide Hasher was very friendly and we learned a lot about Bahrain from him. He was punctual and professional. I highly recommend this tour.

    Wastage of time.

    Ther is nothing to see in Bahrain for tourists. The camel farm trip was simply a wastage of time. However the boat tour and the cultural museum trip was good. I will not recommend Bahrain as a tourist city for tour loving people.
    Top Notch Tour of Bahrain City!

    Experiencing the Royal Camel Farm and prayer call at the Ahmed Al Fateh Islamic Center with our guide. It was educational and a special highlights of the tour. Our guide was attentive, very informative of his country and the cultures of this area. All stops were well worth the time allocated. Thank you again for a great day.

    Excellent experience with Hasher! I was reassured along the way after booking, with check in messages to confirm our meeting details. Needless to say he was there as planned, in a comfortable clean vehicle. Our personal tour started with a delightful visit to see the King's stable of camels. They were friendly and sweet! What a pleasant surprise! Hasher is a solid family man, a true gentleman who is savvy and knows his business well. He included all the must see sights and history, and threw in some special treats. Think we both had a great time! Further, for me as a solo woman traveler, he was respectful and protective. That counts for a lot when I'm in an unfamiliar place with a different culture. It's always a bonus to meet locals in a foreign land, and it was great to get to know something about life here from someone who takes pride in his home. Thanks for such a warm welcome here in Bahrain!

    An Unforgettable Trip
    Solita_T, Nov 2023
    I would absolutely recommend this tour to fellow solo travellers, couples and families- you’ll see and learn the ins and outs of Bahrain in the convenience of a day. This tour is the perfect blend of desert and water and unlike many other tours, you are given ample time to experience each sight. Being a solo female traveller, I often join day tours to get to know the country’s culture while feeling safe. Hasher went above and beyond with both, and is quite possibly the best guide I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. His extensive knowledge of his country is unmatched - all my questions and queries about Bahrain lifestyle, history, culture and even about surrounding Gulf countries were answered so so well. Hasher is committed to growing the business as well as ensuring his travellers are enjoying their stay in Bahrain. I am so incredibly thankful for the tour and beyond Hasher ☺️

    Visited major tourist sites in Bahrain in a single tour. The service was excellent. I had a great time.

    Well worth your time and money. You’ll not get the great conversation with a local unless you do a private tour.
    Miriam_R, Nov 2023
    The best was the way Hasher answered all my random queries about places we drove by. It was a treat to have an actual native of Bahrain to talk to. He told me so much about the Culture and Customs as pertains to a person who grew up here. (Unusual for the Gulf countries) His knowledge of the history and statistics was great. We would go to a site and I’d recognize it from my browsing and Hasher would supply the facts. Hasher was really easy to talk to and a pleasure. I especially liked the stop to sample the Bahraini sweets. He gave good advice about restaurants and reputable shops. The Mosque tour was very informative. He was very professional and adapted the timing to my needs.

    Must do trip for Bahrain!
    MelvinaZ, Oct 2023
    Our tour was custom and private and a wonderful day trip to Bahrain! I actually made a mistake with the date of the booking and the tour operator scrambled to make sure we had exactly what we wanted on the right day! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is curious about the beautiful kingdom of Nahrain!

    Best of Bahrein tour.
    Steven_D, Feb 2024
    We hebben Bahrein bezocht als onderdeel van een cruise in de Emiraten. Omdat de uitstappen via de cruisemaatschappij te duur waren (en minder interessant) hebben we deze geboekt via Viator. Een paar dagen voor de rondrit kregen we al een berichtje via WhatsApp met duidelijke instructies ivm het uur van vertrek en het verzamelpunt. Wanneer we van boord gingen werden we aan de taxistand opgewacht door Hasher die daar klaarstond met een bord met onze namen op. We hebben de rondrit gedaan met 4 andere personen in een luxueuze wagen. Tijdens de rondrit kregen we voortdurend water aangeboden. We startten de rondrit met een bezoek aan het fort van Bahrein, dat jammer genoeg omwille van de slechte weersomstandigheden van de vorige dag gesloten was. Het fort was echter langs buitenaf ook meer dan de moeite om te bekijken. Daarna reden we naar een kamelenfarm, waar de kamelen konden aaien en van heel dichtbij konden bewonderen. We hebben dan onze weg vervolgd naar de moskee van Bahrein, waar onze gids Hasher een zeer duidelijke uitleg gaf over de gebruiken in de Islam. Rond de middag hebben we de soukh bezocht, waar ons een lokaal warm middagmaal aangeboden werd. Na de middag hebben we een plaatselijke wijk bezocht in de buurt van de parelvissers. De rondrit werd beëindigd met een boottocht om beter de kunnen genieten van de skyline van Bahrein. We werden hierna door onze gids keurig afgezet op ons vertrekpunt, zodat we zonder problemen konden verder genieten van de cruise. Bedankt Hasher voor deze leuke dag! Als kanttekening en voor de volledigheid wil ik er wel bij vermelden dat Bahrein ten opzichte van Qatar, Abu Dhabi en Dubai de minst mooie bestemming was. Wil je toch iets van het land en zijn cultuur meenemen is deze rondrit een absolute aanrader.
