NOTE: Starting in 2019 we are offering this tour as a post rather than pre tour and changing the sequence to start with Bahrain. Currently there are issues in the Middle East concerning flights to/from Qatar and now the only direct ones are from Kuwait. Otherwise with the original itinerary we would have two of the 3 flights with connections wasting precious tour time plus adding a significant increase to the cost of these flights. At the end of the Arabian Peninsula tour it is a one hour direct flight from Abu Dhabi to Bahrain.
