Let me start by saying that I couldn’t possibly rate our time with Lika any higher – it was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. Let me start with the base information. Communication was always prompt and clear. Pricing was very reasonable, and Lika was also very clear about what additional costs we would encounter and if they would require cash or a credit card. Additionally, we communicated several times around the “planning phase” – where Lika made sure we were able to see/do what we were interested in and provided us a multitude of options for the evening. Once we settled on a framework itinerary – I can say Lika gave my girlfriend and I the most personable and memorable “tour” of Doha we could have ever asked for!
We were also joined by her husband Arshad and literally within minutes, our evening changed from a “tour” to feeling like we were spending the evening in Doha with good friends showing us around their amazing city. Lika was so informative about everything – the history of the city (and country), contemporary events and daily modern life in Doha – again, provided to us in engaging conversation. On our 5 hour visit we took in the Corniche, a Dhow boat ride, Souq Waqif, enjoyed a traditional dinner (complete with a birthday “cake”) and went to see Al Janoub Stadium (had to see at least one World Cup venue!) – so much, yet none of it felt rushed at all!
Beyond the tour itself, she also guided us through the ever changing, due to covid, Qatari entrance/Visa requirements – and because of that we passed through border security in less than 10 minutes – giving us additional “Doha-time” for the evening!
All in all – it truly couldn’t have been a more perfect evening, made even better by us gaining new friends in Lika and Arshad…again – HIGHLY recommend spending your time in Doha with them!!!
