My husband and I have a lovely tour of Muscat from 8am till 2.30pm. Valentina provided a great whistle stop tour of Muscat, including the souk, fish market, grand mosque and the royal opera house.

I would highly recommend. Her knowledge of the city & country was fantastic.

We (four of us) greatly enjoyed our tour of Muscat. We started our day with a visit to the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque where our tour guide explained may aspects of the regilion practised in Muscat. Other spots of interest included The Royal Opera House where we were given a short tour, Mutrah Souq and Al Alam Palace. We had a great guide who was extremely knowledgeable answering all our questions plus adding points of interest.

We booked this tour at very short notice with Valentina. She was reliable and showed great flexibility as we were a bit delayed when she picked us up. She drove us to the main sites of interest in Muscat where we stopped and gave us a good insight in the city with interesting historical and background information. She was very considerate towards us traveling as a family with a younger one.
We would definitely recommend that you book with her whether you are looking to visit Muscat or another part of Oman.

We were waiting for our next flight to Egypt. We had 9 hours free time. Hence we contacted Valentina n she was more tahn happy to entertain us for 5 hours. We had a very good time visiting as much places we could within the 5 hours time limit. We also managed to get a heavy delicious lunch. Very happy with her service..will take her again should we come to oman again.highly recommended.tqvm

We arranged a tour with Valentina prior to leaving the UK. Communication was excellent and she arrived at our hotel at the appointed time to collect us.

Her driver, Mazin, is Omani and training to be a guide so he accompanied us in to all the sights. They were like a double act and we had great chat as well as seeing the sights!

We saw all that we wanted to see and were dropped back at our hotel by about 3pm. This was our first time in Oman and were very impressed. As well as seeing the sights of Muscat, everyone we met was very welcoming.

We saw and learned a lot thanks to Valentina and Mazin and would highly recommend them. We would have no hesitation in booking again and hope to do so if and when we return!

We arrived by cruise ship. We waited in the small carpark across the road from the entrance of the wharf. While we waited we asked some tour operators if they knew our tour company one person did and offered to call them to see if they were on their way. We finally got through to them and they said the traffic was bad hence the delay on our pickup. When they finally arrived some 30mins or 40mins later, we were met by Ahmed. He drove us around town to the mosque, opera house, fish markets and on to the souk. All in all we were pleased with the tour of Oman.Ahmed is a great guide and very knowledgeable. We are most thankful for the way he helped us find a pharmacy, as one of our party was not feeling well. Thank you Valentina and Ahmed for a great tour of Oman.

We flew to Muscat for the weekend and are so thankful to have booked Valentina on short notice - she truly made our trip to Oman! Valentina was extremely knowledgeable (even with all of my random cultural questions) and gave us a wonderful overview of Muscat while remaining flexible to tailor the tour to our interests.

I would definitely recommend VS Private Tours to anyone visiting Oman. I will be certainly be using them again the next time I go to Oman to explore Salalah and the mountains!
