When travelling through Qatar, there’s no need to wish your time away at the airport. If your transit is 8 hours and more, you can turn your stop into an extended holiday by joining a city tour of Doha, the city where modernity meets Arabic tradition, or a desert adventure taking in the incredible Inland Sea.
We have made this as simple as possible for you, taking care of all arrangements for your transit and ensuring you are back in good time for your following flight so that you can make the most of your transit time and taking a break from your travels to discover Qatar and explore its unique Arabic heritage before connecting to your final destination.
If you are within 48 hours of arriving in Doha and you cannot see availability to book a tour, please come and see us in the Duty Free area of Hamad International Airport, where we can check live availability for you. See map for our location.
