Abbas is an absolutely superb guide. Really knows the history and culture of his country, and communicates superbly. Enthusiastic and committed. One of the best one-day introductory tours to a capital or country that we have experienced over the course of many years of traveling globally. He is a great friendship ambassador for the Kingdom of Bahrain. Also, the bus driver, Mr. Sahar drove safely and has a wonderful personality.

Phenomenal Tour Guide!
Lisa_P, Feb 2024
Ravinder was a phenomenal tour guide. Explained everything in detail and had a positive/upbeat personality.
Everything I needed to see
ANDRE_M, Feb 2024
Thr Al Fateh mosque, the camels (although I did not have the chance of feeding any of them) and the souq (I would like to have more time there)
Highly recommended
Wenlang_G, Feb 2024
Our full day tour was very well organized and very informative. We have been taken good care from the moment we booked the tour until we have been brought back to the hotel. Our guide Ravinder and the driver were very professional. It was a long day, but we have never felt tiring or bored. There was enough time for each stop and always informative. The grand mosque tour was very educational. I have learned so much there. I also like the tour in the national museum. Our tour guide Ravinder guided us through the museum and gave us good information and back ground. It was much more fun and informative than if we would have to walk through the museum by ourselves. The tour in the afternoon was fun and very interesting too. I felt very privileged to see the first oil well of the country and the tree of live. I will recommend this tour to anyone who would like to see and to know the country a bit in a very short time.
Mediocre at best; Cheap-labor guides who are not local
Paul_G, Feb 2024
Except for the first two stops - the Grand Mosque with an excellent mosque-provided tour guide and the National Museum -- the rest of the day was made up of medicocre, poorly-explained "sites" that would hardly make the list of most countries' must-see places. Worse, the heavily-accented, almost unintelligible Punjabi (yes, from India, not from this country) tour guide was full of useless and often glaringly incorrect facts and figures that offered no insights or perspectives of a real Bahraini person

Dian_R, Jan 2024

Very Nice
ALAA_S, Jan 2024
Was an nice experience been most important spots in Bahrain our guide and driver were nice and polite, but price is over rated a bit
Great tour, with amazing guide
Pierre_D, Jan 2024
I really enjoyed the tour. Bharti was an amazing guide with great humor, knowledge and always happy to answer any questions. Considering how small the country is, the sites were Interesting. Only problem with the tour is that there is not much else to see. I highly recommended the tour.
A great introduction to Bahrain
Justine_O, Jan 2024
We loved this busy day, with so much to see and do, we felt we had a good insight into what Bahrain had to offer. We felt welcome, safe and well informed. You could spend longer or revisit some of these destinations if you wanted to, as this gives you a limited time. It also helped us get our bearings - when we hired a car the next day we were more familiar with locations.
Camel
Gianluca_C, Jan 2024
During the tour, visited different sites, but the stop at the Camel firm best moment, the only one!!
Interesting tour around Bahrain
Anna_U, Dec 2023
Had a great day with the guide Ravinder and her driver. We saw all the important sights, and although the day is full and we saw many sights, there enough time to see them all. There’s not much else to see. The guide had enough info to tell and also let have my own time. Offered to take my pictures too! The van was very well air-conditioned, the wifi worked well and there was enough water and juice.
Hire a private taxi and see the city only. It was so overpriced too.
Adelfa_S, Dec 2023
There was not anything to see outside of the city that was worth seeing. camel Farm? There was no farm, maybe less than 50 camels. Pottery? Spend a minute there. When the guide sent us away on our own, immediately jumped on the phone and chatted the entire time, everytime we were sent away.
Old and new in one day - a great flavour of Bahrain
Alastair_F, Dec 2023
An amazing day with a great guide. Ravinder was very friendly and helpful and pointed out lots of interesting things even not in the tour. The whole day tour crams a lot in - but gives an amazing perspective and many thoughts of things that you would maybe spend more time doing later. Thank you!
Amazing Bahrain
Tunc_B, Nov 2023
We spent a wonderfull time to discover Bahrain on the behind of guideness of Ravinder. All visited attractions were soul of Bahrain. Recommended to everyone visiting Bahrain
Great tour!
Yangshen_Y, Nov 2023
Perfect tour in which you could visit many places. The first stop was the grand mosque followed by the national museum. We then moved to the desert after lunch, and saw more history of Bahrain. We were also provided an unlimited supply of water and juicy. Our tour guide was really professional and knowledgeable. She came from India but knew tons about Bahrain! We never got bored in the trip.
Great Tour
Chris_I, Oct 2023
This was a great tour. I enjoyed all of the stops and our guide. I especially liked our stops at the various museums around town.
Great Way to Spend a Day in Bahrain
Ann_K, Sep 2023
This full day tour was a lot of fun, allowing me to see so many places that I would not normally have been able to see. Our tour guide was friendly and made sure we had plenty to drink, as it was very hot!
Great friendly staff nice relaxed tour
Nick_M, Sep 2023
Communication about pick up was very good. Driver was on time and waiting in the lobby for me. Tour guide Ravinder was very friendly and knowledgable and made the tour well worthwhile. Plenty of refreshments were offered throughout and plenty of time was given at each location. Great staff and very relaxed tour with lots of the major attractions of Bahrain covered.
Best way to discover Bahrain in 1 day
Romain_A, Jul 2023
Best way to discover the best points of interest of the city in just 1 day ! Husain, our guide, was super nice and tried to give us all the information he had on the country. The transport and the refreshments were well-appreciated as I did the visit during the summer.
Bahrain all in one day
Janine_W, May 2023
A great day of seeing the sights of Bahrain. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and flexible with timing at the different locations. The air-con bus and cold drinks provided were definitely appreciated in the heat.
