Doha: Discover Qatar (DQ) is offering specially-designed tours to showcase Qatar's top-tier educational and tourism resources as well as the distinctive features of Doha. Custom-made for school and college students from across the globe, these tours present a unique opportunity for a holistic view of Qatar's premier academic ecosystem, while immersing guests in the culture of the country.

Through these tours, DQ aims to provide life-enhancing travel experiences to empower students to learn beyond the classroom. These tours will enable cross culture connections for the students to develop new ideas and perspectives through special experiences, training, and networking opportunities.

Steven Reynolds, DQ Senior Vice President said:“The successful development and launch of our educational tours for school and college students is a testament to Qatar's dynamic offerings as a unique global destination for educational pursuits. We look forward to enriching the academic growth of students around the world with resources, insights, and experiences from leading academic and cultural institutions in Qatar.”

DQ's educational tours focus on a range of subjects including architecture, art and culture, sports and performance excellence, fashion and design, business management, and gastronomy, all with the goal of stimulating learning for students through curated activities and workshops. Bringing learning curriculums to life, students can develop problem-solving skills, improve critical thinking, broaden their worldview, and learn through a variety of custom-designed workshops, activities, and interactive experiential sessions. 

The specially-designed programmes are offered for five days and can be extended up to ten days based on the subject or expected learning outcomes.

These are all-inclusive group programmes that combine services such as hotel accommodation, meals, airport and local city transfers, sightseeing activities and a guide who escorts the group for a complete stay in Doha. 

DQ recently conducted familiarisation tours during which participants discovered diverse opportunities through interactions at Qatar Foundation and Education City, mainly at Weill Cornell Medicine – Qatar, Texas A&M University at Qatar, and Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar.

It also arranged visits to National Museum of Qatar, 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum, Fire Station, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, M7, Katara Cultural Village, and Aspire Academy to present an all-inclusive understanding of Qatar.

Mark Alexander, Happymiles Outdoor Learning Founder and CEO, who was part of familiarisation tour said:“I was pleased to witness things beyond my imagination in Doha. Fascinating architecture influenced by its traditions and culture, priceless art treasures, sumptuous gastronomy diversity, state of art interactive museums, fantastic education infrastructure in form of modern campuses, labs, classrooms, teaching facilities and open spaces – there is so much to learn from.”

“Qatar is one-step ahead in fashion and design uniquely maintaining its culture and a country that encourages top quality sports in world-class facilities. It was a treat for my eyes to see the serene white sand dunes merging with blue sea. Qatar has a high focus on innovation and sustainability, I truly believe there is a lot to learn from this forward-looking country.” 

Happymiles Outdoor Learning is aiming to send approximately 25 student groups to Qatar in next six months.

Discover Qatar has already signed several agreements with key travel partners in India and is looking to Europe and USA markets for strategic key partnerships.
