A wonderful day in the dreamland of Oman! Our guide Khalil was not only very friendly but also competent and told us a lot about the culture, the country and the people. We felt very well looked after and saw fantastic landscapes. The excursion into the desert was beautiful and swimming in the wadi unforgettable!

Awesome!!! Super well organized, great guide with equally good knowledge. Excellent English speaking too. The Wadi is very, very beautiful. You can safely bring (conservative) swimwear for swimming. Drinking coffee in the desert and then a trip on the sand dunes. We got stuck in an unexpected hole, but the auxiliaries were close by. Here too the guide was great On the way back eaten and had traditional Omani food including a kind of camel meat stew. Everything about this day was great, the good care of the guide, his car, nature ..... what an experience. Do not hesitate but book these excursioners you will regret ....

The desert safari was a real highlight!

With Muath, our guide, we had a great day and saw the wadi and then the desert. We visited a Bedouin tent where we got fresh coffee and dates. On the way back to Muscat we made a photo stop at the big mosque and visited the haunt, which was really very nice. There, with Muath's help, our men could still buy the real Omani clothing. Kudos to our guide, who was open to all our questions (and there were a lot of them) and accompanied and looked after us excellently. It was really great!
