Disappointing
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.

Said A
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.

Hot desert visit followed by cooling off in a wadi
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.

Great day in the desert
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.

Perfect day! Better than expected!
Feb 2018 • Friends
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!!!!
