Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Highly anticipated! The whole trip was super smooth. Our guide AbdulRahman was a star. The pick up at 7am was on time, he took us for breakfast local Omani breakfast. Loved it. I was unsure about my swimming skills, so we got some life jackets too.

    The journey to wadi shab was an adventure, the panoramic views are insane. Abdul was so supportive throughout the hike. Without him it wouldn't be possible. Lunch at a restaurant, followed by a quick trip to Bimmah sinkhole.

    Overall the service was incredible. Must do when your in Oman. Thank you Abdul and GidOman for this experience

    I travel with my husband and this is my first time to Muscat. Glad that I enrolled this day tour at the first day of our trip. I love the desert very much. Ali, the tour guide, was super nice, kind, helpful! He made our trip fruitful and smooth. Thank you to Ali.

    This day trip is a must do if you want to get off the beaten track and visit historical sites and beautiful villages, see some with incredible views, and learn about the Omani culture.

    Walking through these villages was a dream. For most part (except in Nizwa) we were the only ones there. The only sounds were of birds chirping and water running through the falec. Photos do it no justice.

    I traveled solo and Qaseem the tour guide was incredible. His love for his country is infectious. He introduced me to local knowledge, kept me safe, made me laugh and ensured I had a great day! He was flexible and adapted the itinerary to meet my requests.

    While it was a full day it was nicely paced, and not rushed, so I had enough time at each stop to enjoy it at my leisure. The car ride was super comfortable and clean.

    Chukran Qaseem, Chukran! Thank you for such an unforgettable day. I look forward to one day returning to Oman and booking another tour with you!

    It was amazing! Highly recommend! Never saw this much dolphins at once! They were all over! Our boat wasn’t crowded, so we felt very comfortable during the tour.

    We did two full day tours with Waleed at Sunshine and one half day tour with Ahmed. During all three, everything was amazing. Waleed is an amazing guide: friendly, knowledgeable and a person who will go out of his way to make sure you enjoy. On day one, we saw Wadi Shab + the Bimmah Sinkhole (make sure you bring water shoes for the Wadi - i did not know this was needed so Waleed went with us through the Wadi and to a local swimming cave even when many guides did not go with their people. Waleed helped us make it through some slippery areas and made sure we were comfortable and safe. I did it in flip flops - but a huge yes to water shoes in the future). The Wadi + the sinkhole were gorgeous. Then Waleed took us to a delicious restaurant. He ordered for us and we had some local fresh fish, rice + veggies (yummy). On the way home he stopped for us to see the Arabian Sea and some great views. On day two we went to Nizwa + Green Mountain. Waleed showed us around and stopped so many times to let us take photos and check out the view. He customized everything to us and made sure we were at the right places at the right times PLUS he knows everyone, so we got no pressure in the small shops we visited, we got delicious food like coconut, dates, halwa, king fish and more + with him we met so many lovely Omani people. On day three we were scheduled to leave early but our flight was delayed so Waleed arranged us a half day tour at the last minute with another guide, Ahmed. Ahmed was also fabulous. He took us to tour the grand mosque, the opera house and to experience a local Omani restaurant (per our request). We learned so much about the country of Oman, about the Omani people and their lives and traditions + I would highly recommend Sunshine Tours to anyone visiting Oman.

    As a side note, I am a woman visiting from the US who was traveling with a female friend. For anyone else traveling like us I wanted to share that I did not known much about Oman prior to my visit and did not know what to expect. I was so pleasantly surprised by the country and it’s beauty + the people who were beyond amazing. I felt safe the entire time I was in Oman. The people were kind and welcoming a gracious + helpful at any time I needed it. I often travel without tours but as I do not k wi any Arabic I thought a tour would be best. Waleed made both myself and my friend feel like family, 100% safe and at home in his country. Ahmed also showed us things he loved in Oman like his favorite halwa and some traditional foods. Sunshine made our trip ten star.

    The tour with Oman Sharing tours was fine. Our guide is great with kids. He really made an effort so that we caught the important timings to make the most of it. We saw and experienced everything we planned. We would have wished to have had more time for everything to enjoy every stop even more. Maybe next time, when we come for longer.

    I had an amazing experience in Nizwa and Jebel Shams. My guide Mohammed was very knowledgeable and had an answer for virtually any question I asked. Would recommend to any traveller.

    This was a truly perfect tour. My guide, Ali, was an absolute gentleman. He made sure I was comfortable every step of our journey and completely accommodating. Be aware there is a lot of driving involved from Muscat, but when you get a great guide like Ali, the time really flies. One of my favorite moments was actually after the official tour. He even brought me to a few extra spots, simply out of generosity. He is the epitome of Omani hospitality and made me feel like Oman was my home too.

    Ali is an excellent guide and an experienced driver. We spent a whole day with him touring the wonders of Oman. He is very relaxed and did not put any pressure on us. We added additional stops in the way and he was very enthusiastic about it.
    He gave us a complete explanation of all the places that we visited. It was extremely valuable also the conversation about everyday life in Oman.

    We booked with no expectation for the trip. Came up that the experience is great for dolphin watching and snorkeling along coastal Omani island. Very recommended. Direct booking via website is cheaper though.

    We had an amazing experienced in Wadi Shab. The trekking was a bit challenging but we enjoyed the waterfall and the hidden cave was amazing.
    Thanks to our guide, he was very helpful all throughout the trip.
    Highly Recommended this tour.

    I was on the morning Local-Style-Muscat-Tour with Fanja Tours with Kassim, the driver and guide. From the beginning till the end it was a fantastic tour with a well-informed guide and nice spots to stop, visit and explore. I really liked it. Absolutely to recommend of me to go in the morning with not so many people and traffic.
    Also individually wishes fulfilled of Kassim. I really appreciate it a lot.
    Thank you very much
