Our guide was very good! He contacted us to let us know the meeting location and met us a few minutes early. He was an excellent driver and helped us get a wonderful guide at the Grand Mosque. He showed us expertly around the sites of Muscat. Thank you for a beautiful day!

Jamal was absolutely amazing - one of the best tour guides we've ever had!!!! It was an absolut highlight! He made us feel so welcome and we learned so much about life in Oman! He made us fall in love with his country!

Really nice tour and the audio guide worked very well. Oue driver gave us additional information and allowed plenty of time at the different stops.

everything was as advertised on time. vehicle was comfortable and cool. Good value for money.

Sait was an excellent and very accommodation guide, top marks
