                    City tour in Bahrain from Khalifa Bin Salman Port
Duration: About 05 Hours
 
09.00 – 10.00 am Al Fateh Islamic centre – Grand Mosque
Bahrain’s Grande Mosque is set against a back drop of palm trees and the sea. Its exquisite architecture, crowned by the worlds most largest fibre glass dome.
10.15 – 11.00 am National Museum – Bahrain
You will not be able to comprehend much about the country unless and until you take a walk down the glorious past of this land. From the first inhabitants of this island to the foreign influences, you will know much about Bahrain like never before. The kingdom's rich heritage and past steps to the fore with the presence of Bahrain Museums. And the one that comes to mind is that of Bahrain National Museum.
11.15 - 13.00 pm Manama Souq
The souk lies in the centre of the old town, near the archway of Bab al-Bahrain and, although much of the surrounding area is modern, the street layout and division of occupations still follow traditional lines: the gold souk, for example, is to be found to the south-east of the market area.

                    Doha City Tour
Duration: About 04 Hours
 
Depart from the designated drive past the 7 km long Cornice Bay, the highlight of Doha sightseeing. The most picturesque part of the Arabian Gulf, it also houses the port of Doha. It’s well worth a walk around the dhow harbour, looking at the traditional fishing traps and admiring the wooden boats. Continue on to the souqs which by contrast, are a wonderful mixture of scents and sights. A very interesting place is the falcon market, located in the same souq. Breeding and training falcons is an ancient Qatari pastime and one of the numerous shops and you may get lucky if the owner lets you hold the birds. The next visit is a tour of the Museum of Islamic Art. Designed by the world renowned architect, I. M. Pei, it is an architectural masterpiece rising majestically out of the waters off Doha’s corniche. The museum houses a magnificient collection of artworks dating from the 7th to the 19th century. Later on, you will be escorted back to your cruise ship.
