No visit to the UAE would be complete without a trip into the Fjords of Mussandam at Khasab!!! For a very reasonable price hop onto a local Dhow and experience the magic that is the fjords. Dolphins following the Dhows coming right up next to the boats are only the start of the trip. Snorkeling at Telegraph Island immerses you... More

Saluja - it's absolutely the best to deal with everytime and this time musandam tour was amazing we did spot a dolphin extremely lucky and the lunch buffet was excellent and the tour itself was one of the best we bought it for less than 200 dhs from groupon.com it's really worth it

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
