What people are saying about Khasab

Despite a very short-term booking (less than 17 hours beforehand), everything went great. Picked up from the cruise terminal, short city tour. Then on the dhow, the boat driver was great. Tried very hard to entertain us, to attract dolphins (we saw it very close) and did not look at the clock. Explained a lot to us. Highly Recommended . Despite exceeding the booked time frame, no additional costs and returned on time to the ship. Very hospitable.

Very nice boat trip. There were free soft drinks, tea, coffee and fruit on the boat. A simple toilet, a fresh water shower and towels were also available. Dolphins could be observed for a relatively long time. The crew was very nice and helpful. This excursion was an absolute highlight for us!

The gentleman who picked us up, the dhow captain and his crew, we're all very pleasant, friendly and eager to help, yet remain a comfortable distance so that they don't over-whelme the guests - we had a very relaxing and refreshing trip

The boat tour and jeep tour were well organized. The boat crew and the jeep tour guide did an excellent job. The lunch in the restaurant was also excellent. This combination tour can be recommended without hesitation

Nice trip, nice tour guide. He even caught a squid and grilled it for us on the boat!
