Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Bus was comfortable came on time. Abbas our Bahraini guide was very good and passionate about history. The tour was well organized we picked up participants from various places. Mosque was great but museum was bit too much for me. Tour was expensive relative to other cities but the entrance to the sites was covered.

My friend found this tour online. It was a nice day and reasonable cost. Our guide, Ludmela was very knowledgable and friendly. She answered all our questions and was very pleasant. Our driver, Amire was also great. Highly recommend, a great way to see a lot of things in a short period of time. Take sunscreen for the outdoor parts, the sun and heat are beyond brutal.

In four hours this tour quickly covered the highlights of Bahrain with a guide that was very knowledgeable about the rich history and culture of the area. Overall a fun and interesting tour. Book a couple of days in advance if possible to ensure pick-up time and location are confirmed in advance.

We have done our trip with Alysia and she tried to make the trip nice, unfortunately she is not a tour guide by nature. We rushed through the different sights and comparing this tour with 4 other city trips in the Arabic Countries, this was the one we would not book anymore. Also comparing the price, it is far too expensive in comparison to other city trips that cost nearly half of the price.

I was picked up promptly , driver Amir was great. His english was better then the Tour guides. Katrina was nice too ( tourguide) but like i said her english could have been better. And it seemed so rush rush, esp the museum and other parts. So that was a bit of a let down. :( also i was the only person in a 30 seater bus as no one else booked this trip on that day could have bought a smaller van.

Thank you for your review. Our guest's feedback always helps us elevate the quality of our services. You're right, having a 30 seat bus all to yourself for a tour might be a bit too much. Sometimes larger groups cancel last minute and we don't have time to switch vehicles. Luckily we just acquired a new fleet of wonderful mini-buses that we know you'd love. Looking forward to seeing you on one of our tours in the near future so we have the opportunity to win a 5 star review from you. P.S. Ameer & Katerina send their warm regards.

This tour was brilliant. There was only two of us with Alicia the tour guide. The tour of the mosque was so informative. I’ve never been given a tour around a mosque before and the lady was really helpful and told me things I didn’t know. Alicia was so knowledgeable and really interested in us as well. She took us round the museum which was great because she pointed out specific areas and made it much more interesting than just walking round on your own. The driver was also really friendly as well

The tour guide Ludmilla was excellent- friendly and presented all the interesting information in an entertaining way. The tour was very well planned so that you explored lots of different aspects of Bahrain life and history. Comfy tour bus, great driver and lots of refreshments. I would really recommend this tour as great value
