We have done our trip with Alysia and she tried to make the trip nice, unfortunately she is not a tour guide by nature. We rushed through the different sights and comparing this tour with 4 other city trips in the Arabic Countries, this was the one we would not book anymore.

The tour guide Ludmilla was excellent- friendly and presented all the interesting information in an entertaining way. The tour was very well planned so that you explored lots of different aspects of Bahrain life and history. Comfy tour bus, great driver and lots of refreshments.
