‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Free Personal Walking Tour with a Local

Discover Doha through a free personal walk with a local

Doha was founded in 1850 and was first called Al Bida. In 1883, Sheikh Kassim’s battle against the Turkish army took place here. In 1916, the city became the capital of the British protectorate of Qatar, and it was not until 1971 that Doha received its present name and became the capital of an independent state. Doha is known for its modern architecture, high-rise buildings, and luxurious shopping malls. The Country Qatar was described as a famous horse and camel breeding centre during the Umayyad period. In the 8th century, it started benefiting from its commercially strategic position in the Persian Gulf and went on to become a centre of pearl trading.

Remember: A Greet means meeting a local resident to walk around town with you as new friends. The first step will be to talk to the Greeter about the details of your personalized tour. It's not about taking part in a standardized tour, but about exploring the city with an expert volunteer .

Thank you, Doha Greeters, it is so great to be welcomed like friends, to see a place with the eyes of a local, have a chat in a tiny café and - eventually - leave as a friend.
