What people are saying about Muscat
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.
Very good trip. Wadi Shab is great place to visit. . . incredible nature. Interesting audio guide that was describing every important place that we saw during trip. Bimah Sinkhole is also beautiful place but not that much as Wadi Shab. We saw some more interesting places during the trip. What I did not like is that we were in a hurry all the time. We spent less than 3 hours in Wadi (arrived around 11:20 had to go at 14:00 because of the lunch) and it was not enough for me to really enjoy the place. Lunch I did not like but the place was nice with very beautiful seaview
I had a great time and though I need to leave a positive review because I have seen many negative ones. My Driver was on time, I was with 6 others in a small group tour bus, and had a great day. The description matches was was happening - and it was worth the 75 USD ;) Don't expect too much from the lunch but it is also not overstated as being super sumptuous... The GPS tour guide in English was excellent - it's well curated, the voice is from a native speaker and the choice of words was sometimes colourful. Did this tour on Friday, Feb 28, 2020
We were a bit late (our fault) and the driver was very kind and waited for us at the hotel. He picked us up with a 4x4 car. The quantity of water in the wadi al abyad depends on the season. We went on the dunes and enjoyed the BBQ there, prepared by the driver. All was great. The whole family enjoyed it, especially the kids playing on the dunes. We could discuss all along the way with the driver.
Nice tour with audio guide. We unfortunately brought a lot of valuable documents with us on the hike and think it should be noted that you can't carry them with you to reach the cave destination. Maybe they could have mentioned this to leave our things in the car, or hopefully you read this and dont make our mistake. Otherwise, an enjoyable day out to some interesting landscapes.
