We really enjoyed the city of Muscat. Our guide was on time, friendly and very patient with all of our questions. The Grand Mosque is breathtaking. We learned so much in 4 hours. This tour was a great value and perfect shore excursion. We will never forget Oman!

We arrived by cruise ship, so had just one short day in Oman. We didn't know what to expect, but loved the beautiful, modern and old city of Muscat and would definitely visit again if we had the opportunity. Our private tour guide, Amur Alhabsi, was very proud of his city and country and gave us an excellent tour. We were there on a Friday, their holy day, so were unable to go inside the magnificent Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. On other days it is open for visitors until 11am. We especially enjoyed wandering through the new souk where fishermen sold their catch, and the old souk just a little ways away (I forget the name of it). It was a maze of little shops with so much to see and buy that is special to their area (like frankincense). Our guide, Amur, insisted on carrying our purchases for us so we could look around more easily. Amur also took us to the Sultan's Palace where dignitaries such as Queen Elizabeth stay when they visit. We did a lot more, but this is becoming like a book. There was so much to see and do, but we had so little time. You really need a week or two to take it all in.

Our guide was very kind but he was a driver and not a real guide that could tell us about the city or the monuments.

I have to express how much I appreciate your sincere arrangement and how much my team was satisfied.
Although it was requested all in sudden,
you and your team handled this very professionally in timely manner.
I admit you have only 1 hour to prepare everything since first minute I contacted you.

The vehicle was spacious and comfortable
and driver guide spoke good English.

I was on end of business trip to Duqm and wanted to have a chance to know OMAN better
since the country is pretty much unrevealed for all of us although there was good relationship between Oman and South Korea.

Mr. Sala (I guess the name of the driver) was full of this sincerity and patriotism on this own country
and we could feel and learn how this country has been developed from bottom of the heart.
It was very impressive how he could manage all the history and traditions as well as current situation in Oman including politics and religion.

I much appreciate that I could find you at the last minute of my staying in Oman
and I have to say, represent to all my people, that your superb tourism program enlightened us in different view of in foreign culture.

At last to tell you, the tour program fare was also more than reasonable and we were so much satisfying in overall.
Thank you for you and your team. Please be aware there has been 6 korean guys who fell in love in Oman because of your service.

I hope you have good life and business for the future with thousand of foreign visitors.
Thank you.

We contacted Basim one week before our trip, unfortunately he was busy at our dates, but he was always in contact with us answering all the questions we had. Instead of him we had 3 days of tours with his father Humaid and it was an excellent experience. The first day it was the Muscat tour, the second we went to Nizwa and the Green Mountains, and the last day we went to Wahiba Sands and Wadi Bani Khalid. Humaid was a perfect guide, very intelligent, funny and hospitable. Also he is an excellent driver and we felt very comfortable during the trip to the desert and the mountains.
We had only 2.5 days in Oman, but with the tours it felt like we've spent a week or more, thanks to the guide. He was always very attentive to us, we also spent two warm evenings with his lovely family. I think we will definitely come to Oman once again, and would be happy to spend the time with Humaid or Basim.

Khalid and his driver Omar were excellent! They took us to the fish market, palace, Harley Davidson (at our request), the souk, and the grand mosque where Khalid shared a wealth of knowledge. Water was provided throughout the tour. I would highly recommend Khalid and Omar!

I had an amazing day with Abdullah. He picked me up in the hotel (bang on time), the car was comfortable and air-conditioned, cold bottled water was provided. The trip was super flexible - I could decide if I wanted to spend more time in one location or another, and we could've gone to a completely different place if I wanted! Abdullah spoke perfect English (and knew German too!) and was very passionate about his country - I learned a lot about Oman.
He was extremely nice and accomodating, and hackled for me at the souq when I was buying souvenirs :) We saw the key attractions in Muscat and went for lunch in a traditional Omani restaurant.
Overall, I very much enjoyed my tour with Abdullah and can't recommend him enough!
Abdullah - thank you for an amazing day and your hospitality! I felt very welcomed and will definitely come again!
P.s. For the fellow solo female travellers out there - I felt absolutely safe and taken care of! Oman is also very relaxed in terms of clothing - I wore a maxi dress, but I also saw women in shorts and t-shirts (maybe don't push it that far, but a skirt covering the knees and a t-shirt will do). For visiting mosques, you will need to cover your head and dress modestly.

We were very impressed with our experience in Muscat. The guide was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. He gave us all the infomation we needed and really took his time explaining everything. We also felt in very safe hands.
We loved Muscat and found it very interesting. The souk was a discovery! The mosque is awesome and definitely worthy of a visit. We actually preferred it to the one in Abu Dhabi. It is smaller but perfect.

We went on to Khasab which is another experience but also well worth a visit. The drive through the mountains is breath taking.

We will certainly recommend your services to anyone travelling to Oman. And God willing we might return one day.

Driver was given wrong time to pick us up by 30 minutes, but he was even 10 minutes later. Companies' response was "So sorry" which translates to :tough luck for you we got your money and we don't care. Do go to Oman but don't use this company.

Hello first of all we know how much it is disappointed when you face unexpected situation in your trip . Their was little bit confusion as cruise line informed that ship will arrive at 9:00 AM , SO , as usual not less than 30 minutes till guest go out for port gate . Any way we totally apologize for any inconveniences that occur from this delay .
