Tour Reviews

    Thank you to Maher for a very pleasant and informative tour ! Can only highly recommend! 

  • Sue

    Everything about our three days with Maher was exceptional!  From the small things like timely communication, arriving on time, sticking to our pre-arranged schedule (all of which add up to be very important in the total scheme of things), to the big things that make an average tour fantastic.  Maher was The Best. 

    Maher made us feel like family from the first moment we met him. He’s gentle and kind, accepting and tolerant, he’s very engaging with a subtle sense of humor that makes every minute with him fun and entertaining. He is very intelligent with a vast knowledge of Bahrain’s rich history, and his simple teaching techniques helped our simple minds to absorb as much as possible in a short period time.   We also appreciated that Maher was willing to share a little of his personal life with us, whuch helped us to better understand Middle East culture, traditions, religion and politics - not always easy subjects to talk about, but Maher did it with tact and ease. 

    If you ever get the opportunity to have Maher as your guide, don’t let the opportunity pass. He is a beautiful man and a fantastic tour guide!!

    My sister Priska and myself we really liked the tour with Maher Yaseen. He answered  all the many questions we had about the Country's constitution, Religion, Idea of Life. It was most interesting to listen to him. We loved Bahrain, saw a lot and will always remember our great Guide Maher. 

    We hope to see him again, maybe on a trip to Europe. In the short hours we visited the Mosque and lots of interesting places. 

    With our best wishes, Miriam Levin and Priska Roncato from Switzerland

    We had an AMAZING tour of Manama/Bahrain with Maher Yaseen! 

    Maher is a very knowledgeable professional friendly guide. 

    After looking at what the cruise excursions offered and charged we’re so happy we booked with Maher via Tour HQ. 

    Maher planned a city/cultural tour and then had no problem when we asked to see a camel farm and the F1 Bahrain International Circuit. Maher went out of his way when we made a last minute request to stop at the Hard Rock Cafe. 

    We have SO MANY wonderful memories of our short time in Manama/Bahrain.


    We HIGHLY  recommend you!
