Khasab in Oman, is a lovely place to visit in cooler months, say November to March. We stayed in Khasab Hotel and took a dhow cruise, dolphins were sighted. Its truly dubbed Norway of the Middle East. The mountain (jabel) safari in a 4 wheel drive was a gr8 experience. It is amazing.....!! Atana Hotel too is well placed facing... More

When you get on board head for the cushions below the awning to keep the sun off, though the crew will be very attentive throughout the voyage and keep you supplied with cold bottles of water and soft drinks. We headed out to Telegraph Island where the curious could climb ashore but the whole trip was eventful with opportunities to... More

Nobody would expect to have Fjords in Oman. Reality, there are. They remind of the sounds in NZ or the ones in Chile. Dolphins along the way, deserted islands and remote villages. A place to go from Dubai for sure.

My partner and myself decided to do this as a day trip and i personally think was perfect. We left Dubai (where we live) at 10 clock and got to Khasab in the Omani enclave of Musandam after an easy drive and stops on way around 1.30. Spent an hour checking what little there was in the town and visited... More

We had the experience of visiting Oman Fjords by taking this tour from Arabian Desert Safari Tours Dubai.The drive is not very much scenic but as we entered Fujairah,the deep blue clean sea delighted our sight. On arrival at Oman UAE border there's a precise but necessary checking.Soon we went to harbour where many Traditionally decorated Dhow Cruise ships were... More

The punctuality and 'no problem' attitude of the Shemeer and his guides simply made our trip to Oman and the UAE the wonderful experience that it was. We knew that we wanted to take a dhow cruise to see the Oman coastline and fjords, but were uncertain about the best way to get there from Dubai. Schmeer and Siraj took... More

I would recommend this travel operator. We chose to make our own way to Musandam through the UAE-Oman border. I would definitely recommend this if you are a driver, the trek to the UAE border is not scenic but the drive after the border to Khasbah is amazing, a drivers dream! The tour operator was very helpful and made himself... More

A handful of friends and I rode our Harley's from Abu Dhabi to Ras Al Khaimah and crossed over to Oman at Al Dhara Checkpoint. The transformation in scenery was dramatic and magnificent. Gorgeous well kept roads and amazing scenery will make your heart sing. Will be definitely going back for an overnight stay over and a dhow trip. Well,... More

Coastline is dramatic and worth a boat trip to explore the scenery. Snorkelling excellent too. Beware the influx of day trippers from Dubai who seem to arrive at lunchtime but leave pretty quickly.
