    Amazing experience. Khalid is MVP
    WaqasAhmed_S, Mar 2022
    An amazing experience. Khalid is an excellent guide who ensured to make this trip a very memorable one. It was truly enchanting to be walking the streets of Muharraq, the old capital of Bahrian.
    Experience Bahrain with one foot in its rich past and one in the dazzling present!

    Our guide, Khalid, was the epitome of Bahraini kindness and hospitality! He took my husband and I along the 'Pearling Path' in Muharraq, visiting countless cultural houses and shops along the way! Bring a bottle of water with you (even in cooler weather) as you'll be sampling a plethora of traditional snacks! This tour offered us the chance to more fully appreciate Bahrain's current culture by learning about it's rich and storied past. This is a side of Bahrain that even many of the locals have not yet seen. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone - groups, couples, single travelers, families, etc.! Khalid is a world traveler himself and a wealth of information on all things Bahrain and GCC! We ended the evening feeling that we had gained not only a new appreciation for the country, but a new friend as well!
