    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.

What people are saying about Muscat Governorate

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

Great experience, a must do in Oman. Our guide Ali was amazingly helpful, happy and fun to be with. I wouldn’t recommend to people who aren’t particularly mobile as a degree of flexibility and agility is needed for climbing over rocks etc on the way to the wadi. Really enjoyed it and cheaper than what we got quoted from other companies

It was a great day out and we really enjoyed exploring interesting historic sites outside Muscat. Our driver and guide Malik was very professional and approachable. I would highly recommend this trip.

Awesome trip, The experience is top notch, just bring both a sturdy pair of shoes and some water shoes. Lunch was excellent. Not much else to say.

Great review of the city, interesting information and new things to see.
