Fantastic. It was the colour - such a sureal blue for the water and sky; the land colour was amazing - all shades of yellow, brown, grey etc. The well run trip was so friendly - opportunity to snorkel twice. The meal was very tasty. We saw a lot of local daily life from the boat.

Me and my partner booked through khasab tours because of a recommendation from our hotel and were not disappointed. We were picked up from our hotel door at 8am and had our visas into Oman paid and sorted by our friendly English speaking driver. (Who also gave us a mini tour throughout the drive) We then got on to a... More

The fjords were beautiful. Dolphins followed us during our boat tour, which was amazing. The mountains in the area breathtaking. I strongly recommend this trip!

Landscape is a little monotonous, but still nice. You can't see anything except sun, sea and rocks. It's nice for snorkeling. Traditional Ottoman ships are too rocking and I don't recommend them to those who have problems with nausea.

We did the full day dhow trip. Very comfortably seated on lots of cushions, nice lunch, swimming towels provided and even a (clean) toilet available - taking the dhow trip is a must if you want to see the weird and wonderful (not similar to anywhere else) setting of this remote outcrop of the Sultanate of Oman.

Great day out doing something different! Sun, sea and dolphins with beautiful cliff formations and a bit of history with Telegraph Island!

The fjords were a world removed from what we were used to. It is staggering to note how remote some of the islands are - and how scenic. You even get to snorkel and swim while out on one of the m any dhow cruises to the fjords.

Idyllic. Loved the history, tour guide was very informative. The snorkelling was interesting, so much to see. The dhow ride was good, the company was interesting nd the inch was wholesome.
