About
The beauty of Qatar’s desert and Inland Sea are best experienced without crowds. This private tour from Doha visits both locations with just you and a guide. Plus, the tour only takes half a day, so it's ideal for time-pressed visitors. Take a dune bash, admire the turquoise Khor Al Adaid sea, and stand where dunes run into the ocean. A choice of pickup points and times means extra flexibility.

What to expect

Carve up huge dunes and slide down the sheer drops sideways as your driver deftly spins the wheel. Continue across desert to the Khor Al Adaid Inland Sea, a vast expanse of turquoise water that forms a natural border with Saudi. Admire this stunning UNESCO-listed body of water before traveling to one of just 3 places in the world where the desert runs into beaches.

Our driver Ibrahim was excellent. As well as being a great driver while at the sand dunes, he talked us through the various sites we saw on the way to/from the dessert.

We learnt a lot of interesting things about Qatar/the dessert itself during this trip, and would highly recommend (especially with Ibrahim!)

Mr Mohammed Hussein was great from moment one of the pickup, informative and friendly on the drive to the spot to ride the camels and then read my face of being petrified of the dune bashing and ended up making me enjoy it. It was like being on a roller coaster! And the falcon holding. Beach and sand boarding was incredible. Highly recommend him and this company as we were taken care of from booking to drop off! Thank you sir!

Had the best time. We were picked up at our hotel by Muhammad Hussain and another nice man.
They took us to the dessert were we then went waud biking for about 40 mins. Its felt like longer and it was so much fun!!! We then were driven around the sand dunes in these 4x4 vehicles and it was really exciting. We all loved it. Muhammad took lots of pictures for us. We then went to the beach area and had a drink. We all absolutely loved it and would 100% reccomend. I will deffo be doing it again. Thanks Muhammad.

Several friends recommended the safari and we (group of 4) decided to do the half day version for our first time out in the sand dunes.

The website was very easy to use for reserving the safari and paying for the group. On the day of the pick up the coordination with the driver was very smooth. Our driver Mohammad messaged me a few minutes before he arrived to give me notice, which was very appreciated. We drove about 20-25 minutes to the point where you enter the dunes and while he depressurized the tires (for better traction in the sand), we had camel rides and held a falcon (20 riyal and 10 riyal, respectively).

From the moment we started in the dunes it was a blast driving around with Mohammad. He made it fun and while we were completely safe the whole time, he did things with the car that I didn't think were possible. I don't want to spoil the fun, but needless to say it was a great mix of beautiful views and crazy excitement.

After an hour or so of very exciting off road driving, we stopped at the ocean side resort area and relaxed for an hour. After the resort we drove more directly back to a main road to fill the tires and then head home. Mohammad was timely, professional, and fun! Thanks for a great time!

A very well-organised tour, setup by Walid, confirmed by Gizell in the office and executed by the lead driver, Sami. Our three families all enjoyed the exhilarating experience of being driven through the dunes to Inland Sea. We returned to the camp in good time for a BBQ buffet dinner with plenty of activities on location to keep the kids entertained. Thanks QIT Team!

An awesome experience.
Mr Mohmd Husain is an excellent tour guide. Apart from good communication skills, he is a best and an experienced driver, dune bashing was thrilling.
After a great adventure, we saw quiet sunset at inland sea, quite a view.

We had the most amazing experience. We did everything you could do for the tour including dune buggy’s, camel rides & dune bashing. Syed was a great tour host who provided fun, pictures / videos & laughter. He provided music and joined in with all the fun! Highly recommend.

A lifetime experience roaming in the Desert, going up and down the sand hills going close by to the sea just a few steps away and riding on a motorbike which we had not planned for but would have missed if our guide had not recommended it to us. My kids and of course me and my husband thoroughly enjoyed this half day Desert Safari in full. The camel ride was another addition to my kids which I am sure they will never forget. Thank you QIA for your great suggestion.

Me and my family loved this funny and adventurous trip!
First we stopped at a camp where we were able to ride camels or to take some pictures with them.
After that the Safari starts, no time we felt bored.
Also our driver was very friendly and explained us different things about the desert.
Definitely to recommend!

I had a great guide and driver who made the whole experience worth it. I had a private tour with Ibrahim . He is very professional and also gave a tour en route to the desert. I definitely recommend the desert safari for everyone. I plan to do it again with my son.
