A full day tour. A lot of driving, over 450km. (75% was on multi lane freeway.) Got an appreciation of the different landscapes. Nizwa fort was interesting and totally rebuilt. Oman’s Grand Canyon was amazing. The Wadi’s were interesting, and the old town built into the hills. Great restaurant for lunch.(Which you pay for yourself) but great food and not expensive. Guide arrived half an hour late, but when I rang company advised he was held up in traffic so felt reassured he would arrive. I good way to get a feel for the countryside of Oman if you only have a few days to visit. Would recommend.
I was surprised when the tour guide (Sharaf) and the driver picked me up because this is a private tour and I am the only guest. They customized everything according to my preference and manage the timing to suit me the best. The price of the tour is the same as Big Bus. I would strongly recommend this company to any tourists. I think the fact that they are new in the market makes them pay more attention to the customers now.
Great tour that’s covers all the main sites of Muscat. Our guide Abdullah was always very helpful, polite, and friendly. Also super informative about Muscat and the Muslim religion, I feel we learned a lot. He bought lunch and souvenirs for us, which was such a lovely touch. Overall, great experience!
Snorkeling was great. Lots of time to explore. Saw some sea turtles within minutes of being in the water. Boat was great. Better quality than expected. Lots of dolphins. Cool at first, then kind of funny because it was just a bunch of tourist boats chasing after dolphins. Poor dolphins.
It was a unique experience. We saw so many dolphins and got to snorkel for one hour. The guide was very friendly! Would definitely recommend for families, there were kids aged 3-11 with us that thoroughly enjoyed it.
