What people are saying about Muscat Governorate

We are 3 girls and we had this trip on January 2020. We really love it, mostly the red dunes actually. The dunes are spectacular. We get there in a 4wd car driven by our guide and I think that having a local guide to drive in the desert is the best choice. The road is quite not visible and you have to know how to drive in the desert to make sure that you don’t have any car crash or you get lost. The guide (“Jacob”) was very friendly and kind. The second part of the tour was in Wadi Bani Khalid and we entered a cave where you can see fresh water underground. We really like this trip!

We had a great day with Sharaf! So happy that we booked the trip. He was very nice, very helpful and very funny. Not only as a guide also as a photographer;). I would highly recommend this trip!
