Desert Delights of Bahrain

Half Day Private Tour

09.00 Our English speaking guide will meet the guests at the hotel lobby & continue tour.

 

First visit will be to Sheikh Salman Bin Ahmed Al-Fatih Fort. Built in 1812, the spectacular fort sits at a high vantage point overlooking the surrounding desert.

Next you’ll visit the first oil well where Bahrain’s oil industry began more than 70 years ago. People are often surprised to learn that Bahrain was pumping oil years before Saudi Arabia began its own search for black gold. In fact, Standard Oil, of California, formed the Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) in 1929, and Bahrain’s first well was studded in October 1931, with oil found the following year at Jebel Dukhan, or Smokey Mountain. “Well Number 1,” now a landmark tourist site in Bahrain, once produced 9,600 barrels a day. Next proceed to the Oil Museum which is next to the First Oil Well. The Oil Museum was officially inaugurated in 1992. It houses old drilling equipment, samples of rocks found underground, topographical maps and some information about the companies that had participated in the exploration for oil (Oil Museum is open only on Friday) .

The last attraction for the day will be the Tree of Life. An Acacia tree which survives itself for more than 400 years in the middle of the Bahrain desert without any water supply. Some believe this tree belongs to the Garden of Eden.

13.00Hrs After the tour back to hotel & over night at hotel.
