Tour description provided by Viator

The Heritage Market Tour highlights the contrasts between the old and the new in this fast growing and exciting city. Our exploration of Doha's traditional part at the Souq Waqif Heritage Market: the spice souk, a sensory delight with a host of cooking spices, herbs, rose petals and incense, the textile and Gold Souk, the art galleries... Our trip ends at the glittering windows of the handmade crafts. With such fantastic choices in one place.
Souq Waqif means “standing market”. Falcon souq, spice souq, pet souq, gold souq, handicraft souq and art gallery are the highlights.  Bedouins and locals would gather on either side of the river to trade goods — from cumin to wood. It’s also worth seeking out the small gold souq and the falcon souq, where you can handle these prized birds. Falcon still plays an important role in Qatari life, used for hunting both in Qatar and abroad. If you walk a little further into the labyrinth, you’ll see families shopping for their everyday needs. Souq will give you an opportunity to check your bargaining skill. You can find good collection of Qatari traditional wear and handicrafts. A great opportunity to experience Shisha with Arabic coffee and traditional foods. To enjoy the heritage culture our driver will pick up you either 9:00 AM or 3:00 PM as per your convenient. So
