Great itinerary, very very poorly executed
, Jun 2022
The tour was 3 hours, not 4. We made 5 stops, but rather than being the 15-20 minutes advertised, nearly all were no more than a get off bus, take photo, get back on. The first stop was the burial mounds: guide pointed to what looked like a pile of bricks (especially as we saw some 'real' burial mounds in the museum a few days later) and ushered us into the pottery shop. Barely had time for that too! No time to take any of it in, such a disappointment.
Great Tour

Excellent transport with wi-fi and courtesy water and juice. A wonderful tour guide who was so interesting and knowledgable.
Top tour guide Ayat

Ayat and saher were great guides. Local knowledge was phenomenal and everything was smooth in terms of the ride with fantastic wifi service also available- highly recommended when in the city
Group Booking

I booked a group tour but was the only one who booked for that day so it was essentially a private tour. They were great and friendly! I recommend sneakers for this excursion.
Hit the highlights, but none of them are spectacular
, Nov 2019
This was a good tour for seeing many of Bahrain's top attractions quickly - we made 7 stops in 4 hours. The tour bus was great, the guide and driver very nice and knowledgeable. The sites themselves just weren't that exciting.
Great Half-Day in Bahrain

Perfect way to get out of city and learn more about history and culture of Bahrain. Knowledgeable and friendly guides, a great diversity of stops on the tour, from camels to Formula 1 to oil. Highly recommend!

After trying the City Tour we opted for this one also. This one was super cool. Loved the full tour in the F1 track and the Safari drive in their incredible bus big screen tv, refrigerators, wifi, killer sound system etc around the Zoo. We had the same guide from our city tour which was very nice and professional. Again A for Visit Bahrain tours. Four hours flew by.

We loved it! Our tour guide was exceptional and the red bus felt like we were in a limousine. Unlimited refreshments and the high speed wifi made the day even better. Loved the camels and the whole desert experience.
