        The Authentic Omani food experience
        I went to Al Harith family, he is very kind and generous. I really like the conversations we had,I think this is the best way to connect to Omanis.

      We were met at our hotel by Hamed and driven through Muscat to his home where we met his wife Wiaam.

      Both are well travelled and we had a very interesting evening discussing Omani culture and daily life.

      A delightful couple who went out of their way to make us welcome. They also stayed in touch during our trip around Oman and helped out with a couple of queries that we had along the way.

      The food was excellent and we would thoroughly recommend signing up for this experience.

      Everything about this experience was fabulous. Mohammed picked us up and gave us interesting facts about Oman on the way to dinner. Our dinner hosts were warm and welcoming. Food was abundant and delicious! This is a must-do for Muscat visitors.

      We had the fortunate experience of having a wonderful dinner with an Omani family through Zayr.om last night! My family and I had a great time and completely enjoyed the hospitality of Rahman and her family. The hosts went above and beyond to make our evening special with an overview of Omani traditions, henna, food explanations, and much more. The food choice were extravagant and I can honestly say was one of the best meals I have had in Oman. Thank you Zayr for a great time!

      I am so glad we did this. It was the best thing we did on our visit to Oman. It wasn't about the food (although it was delicious and interesting), it was about meeting a wonderful local family who welcomed us graciously into their home. We talked and shared about our cultures and our countries and it was a remarkable experience. I highly recommend it. added bonus was a tour our driver Hammad gave us after on our way back to our hotel. Worth every penny. Wish I had time to do a cooking class too.

      We visited a very friendly and welcoming family who had a very nice home to experience Omani food and learn more about the culture. My wife got to help out cooking too. They were also kind enough to give us some gifts to take with us too (spices and frankincense). Their English was great and the conversation was flowing. They have also travelled a lot like us so it was fun to talk about those experiences.

      Thanks for the experience, definitely worth doing if you want to appreciate the real Oman.

      Thanks

      Had a wonderful evening at the home of our host, Osama: we couldn't have asked for a more welcoming, attentive, and engaging host. It was an easy and relaxed atmosphere, and the conversation was as good as the food - this was a really rare chance to have a genuine connection with a local Omani family, and to learn more about this fascinating and ancient culture.

      Couldn't recommend more highly :)

      Meberu, you are the first to try this one of a kind experience in Jabal Al akhdar! When we vetted Dawood we knew he would be a great hospitable host, but we didn't know he would be such a great hike guide! Glad you enjoyed your visit with him and his family! -Hamed

      We are very glad to be a hosting family with Zayr.
      I've always wanted my family to travel and meet new people, but now we can meet them at home.
      We enjoy sharing our culture and Zayr made it easy.
