      Oman Tours
      We had hired 3 land cruisers from AJ Tourism for our family holiday in Oman. The cars were as promised. Sulaiman, our guide and the other drivers were very professional, good and dedicated. We had a great time. I am glad to have used AJ Tourism for our transportation and tour services !

      Jebel Shams with Salim
      Al Hoota cave was interesting,although we couldn't go on the train because it wasn't in function. The walk and views on Jebel Shams are amazing. Our tour guide Salim was very good. He told us many things about hiking im Oman, so if you're interested just ask for him.

      I did a multi day tour including Muscat, Dinamiyat Islands, Jabel Al Akhdar, Nizwa, Jabel Shams, Wahiba Sands, Wadi Bani Khalid, Sur, Ras al Jinz turtle reserve and Wadi Shab. Everything was amazing! Great hotel selection with breakfast included, delicious lunch and organized itinerary. I had the best tour guide ever (Hamaid Ahmed Alamri)! Kind and patient, he went above and beyond to exceed ALL my expectations! I loved Oman and went returning will not hesitate to contact this company again. I strongly recommend to anyone coming to Oman. Suggestion for travelers: Try to accommodate your visit to Nizwa for a Friday as is the best day to go to the market.

      Amazing experience
      My mother and I were on a trip to Oman. We took several full days with this company. Can’t recommend them enough. They are very professional and very welcoming. They share the culture of the Omani people and country with passion. They were very accommodating. They gave us the most incredible journey. Our tour guide Humaid was amazing. When I’ll come to this beautiful country I will definitely book again with them. Thank you so much.

      Best tour in Oman!!
      My boyfriend and I embarked on a two day tour, we were entrusted with Said as a guide, a young guide who immediately put us at ease, was very professional and took care of us throughout the time spent together, he was very patient with us and gave us all the time we needed to finish the visits, meals and photos 😂. We filled him with questions about Oman and its culture and he always answered us kindly and helped us understand its traditions. Needless to say, he has satisfied us on everything and is also a great photographer! It was a beautiful tour that I highly recommend to those visiting this beautiful country

I can strongly recommend this tour and this guide to everybody

      Fantastic trip.
      I had most remarkable trip with our guide Khalid, Not only everything was perfect, but we felt, in every instance, that our guide Khalid truly cared about us. I liked the hike, nature, fish spa, and the food was perfect. Most importantly Khalid is a good in desert drifting 😁. The greatest value compared with the price. Thanks a lot.

      Outstanding tour of West Salalah
      I am a first time visitor to Oman and Salalah. Ghanim was an excellent guide! He provided so much information about Oman and Salalah. He provided great communication ahead of the tour so that I knew what to expect and what to bring on the day. He took me to several “secret” locations and we were able experience some absolutely stunning locations in Oman. I intend to visit Oman again next year and will not hesitate to book again with Ghanim.

      Amazing experience not to be missed!!
      We signed up for a private day trip to Bimmah sinkhole, Wadi Bani Khalid and Wahiba Sands with Aryaf Jibreen tourism after reading tons of packages and reviews from different companies online. We liked the recommendations and flexibility and the relatively reasonable pricing, so we decided to go with them in the end. We had Bader as our guide for the day and I couldn’t be happier with our experience! Not only had he demonstrated the best version of Omani hospitality, he’s also got great sense of humour and our whole trip had been filled with laughter and giggles (and also food & drinks 😂) We were welcomed by Bader at the hotel lobby and he took us with his land cruiser. Before we set off, he explained the time needed to travel between places and was a good timekeeper throughout the journey. He’s got a fridge ready in the vehicle where he prepared water and some juice to quench our thirst, and also some dates, tahina dips, karak tea and Omani coffee (my favourite) to make sure we don’t starve during the day. Lunch was included in this tour and we were taken to a Omani/ Yemeni restaurant for some really yummy camel meat and lamb shuwa (eating on the floor like a local!) My favourite part of the tour was definitely the Wahiba sands…!!! at first I was worried and skeptical coz I read on the internet before that some other tour companies would only stop at rundown spots and the photos taken would not turn out nicely. But Bader knows what we wanted and drove us into the dunes after visiting a badouin house. The view and sunset were just captivating!!! 🥺 he also made us kayak tea after sunset (tastes much like our milk tea in Hong Kong!) and we stayed on until dark. Bader seems to be very passionate about his job and would go the extra mile with his hospitality and recommendations (I even asked him where we can get good dates and coffee back in Muscat). In conclusion, i feel we were so lucky to have Bader as our guide, coz the whole experience didn’t feel like a commercial tour but more like a friend who welcomed his guests to his country, showing the best of Oman!! I’d recommend this tour to anyone!!
