          Amazing country - amazing people
          I had a great time on the Wahiba Sands and Nizwa tour with Vacation Packages Oman. They are very attentive and provide good communication. The guide, Nasser, was friendly, organized, and knowedgable. I enjoyed his conversation as he introduced me ot his beautiful country.

          Very good experience
          I went for the Muscat city half day night tour. My tour guide was Nasser and he was extremely helpful. He took me all over Muscat and showed all the main points of the city. He also explained a lot of the city's history and culture. I took the tour when I had an eight hour transit. He picked me from the airport and dropped me back. It was a very smooth and pleasant experience. Next time I will try to go for a day tour, since in the night you cannot experience everything.

          The Lead Partner of the company ( Tahia) was very attentive and responded to questions quickly. Excursion tour guide was friendly. For this trip, it’s good to be prepared to swim and hiking to the pool & waterfall is about 45 to 60 min one way.,

          Round Tour in Muscat
          A very warm, caring and welcoming family tour company that made me feel at ease and comfortable and accepted me as if I was part of the family. Their guide cared and guided me throughout the tour and showed and educated me on the history and culture of all the places we visited. Nasser was a very popular character and therefore his introductions gave me an insight to the warmth of the Omani people and their culture. The tour was well organised, varied and interesting with a wealth of knowledge on the history of each place on the itinerary. Tahia the owner phoned every day checking on my well being.It exceeded all my expectations,I shall certainly return to Oman and Vacation Packages Oman Thank you!

          Muscat Layover
          We had a 7hr layover in Muscat. I reached out to Majed and he arranged a 4hr city private tour with a guide. The tour was awesome to get a glance about Muscat. I would definitely recommend it to folks who doesn't want to spend 6+hrs at airport waiting for a connecting flight.

          Taking advantage of the 7.5 hour layover tour in Muscat
          Me and my family just came back from a trip to London, and within as early as 6 months before the trip we have chosen Oman Air as our carrier of choice due to very reasonable prices (540 GBP for a return flight from Jakarta to London) and during the inbound flight we had a lenient layover time of 7.5 hours. As none of my family had been to Oman before, I did a bit of research of what can be done during a short layover tour in Muscat in the evening with such duration. Vacation Packages Oman was on top of the search result, and amazingly within seconds from the moment I opened the website, a manager on duty promptly popped up on the live chat bubble and directly answered my inquiries. I finally agreed with what they had to offer and I didn't regret it. I felt really guilty because I showed up more than an hour late due to late flight from London to Muscat and had to amend the number of participants because of my grandparents being not fit that evening, but nevertheless our guide Mr. Sulaiman said it's not a big deal and continued on guiding us seeing the Grand Mosque, the Royal Palace, and the Mutrah Souq. He is very friendly and informative and speaks really good English as well. We are picked up on a large air conditioned MPV Big thanks to Mr. Majed Khaled as well on helping me with the inquiries beforehand. I am looking forward to going back to Oman for a longer period of time to enjoy more of what they have to offer.

          A lovely tour of some of the variety Oman has to offer
          My family (6 members, 4 young children) chose to visit Oman during the Eid Al-Fitr holiday. Vacation Packages Oman had a bit of difficulty securing a guide for us since it was a holiday and most people were home celebrating with family, but they succeeded in placing us with someone for two days during our trip, and we're happy they did. Our guide Rashid was fantastic. He was patient and understanding of our travel needs with the young children, and was always happy to chat about any aspect of Omani life and culture. We all traveled in one very capable Land Cruiser into the "Interior" of Oman to see the town of Nizwa with its old fortress and some of its date farms. Then we traveled down to the Wahiba sands. We had to cancel our plans to camp in the desert overnight due to a violent unexpected storm, but the storm did make for a drive that was quite an adventure in itself. The second day, we worked our way back toward Muscat, seeing some of the wadis (Wadi Bani Khalid, Wadi Tiwi, and Wadi Shab) as well as the Bammah Sinkhole on the way. The whole family really enjoyed our time on the tour, as well as our other non-guided days we spent in Oman. It is a lovely country, with stunning coastlines and friendly and generous people. Highly recommended!

          Beautiful
          Was amazing, you need to be able to swim to reach the end unless you wear a life jacket. The swim is moderately difficult but well worth to reach the cave at the end. Also swim shoes or runners are needed for the rocks in between swimming.

          Great experience and value
          I enjoyed excellent service from Majed when booking and from my guide Nasor on this personalized trip to Wadi Al Shab (as the main landmark). I have described the trip in detail on my personal blog. I can highly recommend the said services and would love to see more of Oman in the future.

          Excellent!
          We spent only 4 days in Oman and we were wondering what can we do in such a short time. So, we write an email to Vacation Packages Oman and Majed from the agency helped us planning everything. We chose two tours Whaiba Sands and Wadi Bani Khaled & Wadi Shab and Wadi Tiwi. Our guide, Mr. Suleyman was very nice, very patient and an excellent driver. Oman is an absolutely amazing country with stunning views and unique places. People are very polite and helpful and we felt safer in Oman than in our hometown. We have to come back for sure to see the rest of the country!

          Excellent custom 6 day multi-stop tour with driver and guide.
          Over the December break this year my family of 3 (3 teenage kids) travelled to Oman and arranged the land portion through Vacation Packages. Tahia, the owner was fantastic in helping organize our trip looking after all details including booking a birthday cake for my daughter! We stayed in Oman for a few days ten travelled in a private car with a driver/ guide to the turtle reserve, the desert, Jebel Shems, Nizwa and the beach at Sahannah. Our guide Nassir was excellent, thoughtful and informative, the car was great and the hotels were reflective of the locations we were visiting. Nizwa lacks decent hotels but that should change over the coming years. I highly recommend using Vacation packages for your trip and highly recommend visiting Oman!

        The tour guides on the day were really nice and friendly. Pick up and logistics worked very well.

        However, we didn’t get to do any dune bashing, just reached a dune, walked for 15mins and got back into the car. This was somewhat underwhelming, having done a 6hr round trip and expecting this to be the highlight of the trip.

        Also there wasn’t much flexibility in terms of seeing the sunset, contradicting past reviews.

        Having done a similar trip in the UAE, this one was overwhelmingly disappointing.

        Thank you for sharing your tour experience, we truly appreciate our guests reviews weather it was describing good or bad experience, we take it very serious as we believe that we can learn from it to get better and provide our best service for our future clients. Kindly accept our apologies for the disappointment we have caused to you, we want to explain to you the difference between UAE and Oman, regarding the tour time, as you know Oman is almost 4 or 5 times the size of Emirates, so the distance between places can take more that 1 to 2 hours to travel between attractions, we get that kind of impression regularly from our guests who had visited U.A.E before coming to Oman. Regarding the dune bashing, as we mentioned the nature difference between Oman and U.A.E., we taking into considerations the safety of our guests as in Wahiba sands (desert) there is low network coverage and it can be difficult to ask for help in case of any emergency so we prefer to do light sand driving. Regarding sunset watching, we recommend you to do overnight in Wahiba, because in day tour you only have limited time to return to Muscat and performing sunset watching can extend the tour time up to 4 or 5 hours. Finally we want to take the chance to thank you once again for sharing your experience with us and our guests, we promise to do our best to avoid the same thing from happening in the future.

        We (family of 5 with teenage kids) had a great day! Our guide was very friendly and informative, both at our destination as on the way there. He told us a lot about Omani culture, buildings and economy.
        The visit to the Bedouin tent was very interesting. It may be used as a tourist attraction, but it does give you an impression of what authentic Bedouin life is/was like. The desert safari was a thrill ride, and we saw some wild animals (camels). Our guide made a great effort to show us interesting parts of the desert and find us good spots for photos. Stepping out of the car to take some pictures was very hot, I would advise wearing sneakers if you don’t want to burn your feet on the hot sand!
        The wadi after that (which was a longer drive than I had expected) was beautiful and a great way to cool off. All this was topped of by a cheap (4 OMR/person) and tasty Indian buffet lunch at the wadi.

        We had a great day out with our excellent guide, Nasser. He told us many things about Oman and was very flexible regarding the schedule. The desert was incredible and the dune bashing was scary and exciting at the same time. We ended up back at the hotel much later than expected, but this company doesn’t mind that, they just want you to have a good time and full Oman experience.

        I was stupid enough to leave my hat in the car, but the tour company dropped it off at our hotel the next day. Great service, highly recommended.

        We were a group of 4 wanting to maximize our time in Oman. We wanted to have a fun packed day and they absolutely delivered. We arranged a pick up time and received a call the night prior to confirm. Once we were picked up, we were driven in a 4x4 to wadi bani khalid. We enjoyed a perfect day; we were not rushed at any point. After having lunch we were driven to the Wahiba sands and went dune bashing....IN-CRE-DI-BLE. We stopped for coffee in a Beduin camp (although was not the most realistic one...). Our driver asked us if we wanted to stay and see the sunset in the desert (which was incredible) at no additional cost. He drove us back to the hotel much later than planned, just so that they could give us the most perfect day possible! Would recommend to anyone!!!!
