Recently returning from Oman, I want to emphasize how WONDERFUL our guide Jamal was. I found Jamal through Trip Advisor, and as a skeptical New Yorker was not sure what to expect. After contacting Jamal via email, he was quick to respond he was available and can take us to the places we requested. Communication from start to finish was super easy. His English is great and he made sure to touch base the a few days before to make sure we were still set to go.
At 8am, Jamal promptly picked us up from our hotel and did not return us back until 930pm! Sadly, we only had one day to spend with him, he said “he wanted to show us everything he can” and really did! They day was packed with the beautiful sights of Oman, a delicious lunch and a few coffee breaks. From the start to the end of the day we spoke with Jamal about everything! He was open to answer all of our questions and in return curious about our life in America.
We had such a great day with Jamal, we asked if he would join us for dinner the following night. We were so excited when he said YES!
Our only regret was not booking Jamal for two days to have more time seeing beautiful Oman with him.
The personal touch Jamal added to our trip to Oman far exceeded our expectations. Our day with him was the most fun and informative day of our entire stay.
Besides being an AMAZING guide we feel as though we left meeting a friend who we hope to see again one day. Our home is open to Jamal when he wants to come visit New York City. :O)
