What to expect
  • Select a morning or afternoon departure on booking. Then, after a hotel pickup in Doha, begin your 4-hour tour with a journey west through the desert to the Sheikh Faisal Museum. Set in a desert fortress, this charming museum showcases the historical collections of Sheikh Faisal, one of the country’s ruling family. Enter through the arched wooden doors and explore the 15 halls. Together, they house over 15,000 interesting artifacts, ranging from vintage vehicles and coins to antique manuscripts, weapons and arts. Next, drive to Doha’s Camel Race Track for a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Qatar’s national sport.

Perched on the camels’ backs and clothed in racing silks, these remote-controlled wonders are used to help train up the camels to peak fitness. Finish at the Racing and Equestrian Club, home to the Qatari royal stables. View some of the purebred Arabian and thoroughbred horses stabled here, and watch some of the magnificent steeds in training. Your experience then concludes with a hotel drop-off.

Great Half Day Tour
Our family took a half day tour of the camel racetrack and the Sheikh Faisal Museum as well as horse stables. We took the tour through Qatar International Tours and it was a great morning of seeing the sites. Our guide was patient with me as I asked a lot of questions. Would definitely recommend this tour company and the experience.

Enjoyable experience with tour guide Jay
Dec 2019 • Family
The car came to pick us up at exactly 9 am. The tour started and Jay pretty much knew something interesting about each and every building we saw on the way out of the city. Each question we asked he was able to answer and provide some interesting story or information. The camel market/race track were really intriguing and we were able to take pictures of the camels and their robot trainers while they were on the go. We then went to the museum of Sheikh Faisal where we spent hour and thirty minutes. It was pretty cool although somewhat disorganised. I definitely recommend it however just be aware its not your regular museum since it has stuff from all around the world put together. There are guns, swords, furniture, cars, statues, really everything. Then we visited horse ranches, with beautiful European and Arabic horses where we were able to see how they are trained and taken care of. We went back to the hotel at exactly 1pm and on the way back we, again talked with Jay about some really interesting topics. Really good tour and tour guide, we definitely recommend the experience.

An all day visit to thesespecial places
Oct 2019
We went to the equestrian center first and had a nice tour of the faclities-indoor and outdoor arenas, show barns, exercise areas where the horses work in water, spas and on treadmills. We saw them getting ready for a show jumping competition and got up close to many of these beautiful Arabain horses. The trip to the camel race track was not as good as the camels were not racing that day and we could only see them laying down and resting. We did get to see the tiny robots that ride the camels on the race track. The Sheikh Faisel Museum was a vaste collection of items from all types of interests. There were cars, cameras, furniture, clothing, carpets, fossils and so many more treasures. It was a nice place to visit with something for all ages.

Terrific Day!
I recently went on a weeklong trip in Qatar and QIA took care of all of our activities for the week including pick up and drop off at the airport. I also took this day long trip as a solo traveler. My guide was Eric- he is fantastic! Very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. The day trip was excellent.
Throughout the week we also went dune bashing (so fun!) and to museums and the souks. All trips were well planned and very enjoyable as Eric always took care of our group and made sure that everything happened on time and went according to plan.
