About
This 8 hours, Dhofar mountain safari tour, will take you to a magical journey to the Eastern side of Salalah, where one of best landscape of the Middle East awaits you. The most popular valley of the Dhofar Region, Wadi Darbat will be your first stop. Here you will be seeing the seasonal waterfall, a spring where you can do boating (kayaking/paddle boat/motor boat) overlooking the mountain of Jabal Qara series. Sumharam Archeological site is a place where you can see the remains of an old city and a small museum is on site - Sumhuram Archeological Gallery. Taqa Castle is one of Dhofar’s most distinguished landmarks, which was built in the 19th century. Taqa Beach and Taqa city will also be covered in this tour. Jabal Samhan is the highest point in Dhofar region, which is above 4000 feet. From here the view is amazing and if you are lucky, you will see mountains passing below you. It’s a perfect place for a recording timelapse and taking photographs of clouds being over it.

Fantastic professional 5 star services with a personal touch
We had an excellent tour in Salalah with our guide Ahmed - not only did he show us around the usual tourist places but also took us to some wonderful off beat places and areas - we had a wonderful short vacation thanks to him and to Hassan our organiser at Beautiful Salalah tours. Would highly recommend these for anyone who wants to experience the real beauty of Salalah at their own pace and time - Very well organised, professional and yet personalised touch with no hurrying through, allowing you to take your time to enjoy.

We had an absolutely enjoyable day
Feb 2020
My wife and I booked the trip for 7 February at 7.30am. We were picked up at the hotel right on time and were greeted by our tour guide Mohammed.
Mohammed was very nice and we enjoyed his company right from the start. Mohammed is born and bred local and lives in Taqah so knows the area very well, and also knows many people.
Our day visited all the listed locations was very well spread out throughout the day. We also visited the Mirbat Fish Port.
We could have stopped for lunch but my wife and I aren't lunch eaters so we continued our tour. We had plenty of drinking water in the car which was nice on the warm day.
Rather than list all the places we visited separately, I will say that we enjoyed every place we visited equally. The locations are very interesting and have a lot of historical facts.
The tour was mentioned as being 8 hours, and we were dropped off at our hotel at 3.30pm.
We recommend this tour when visiting Salalah.

We had a very pleasant experience with Beautiful Salalah. Our driver was very accommodating so we ended up taking other tours with them while on our trip. Highly recommended.

Amazing full day trip
Nov 2019 • Friends
My full day private tour was everything that trip advisor mentioned in previous reviews . From the start Hussein , who booked my trip was very helpful and made sure that all my questions were answered . Second the tour guide , Ahmed was exceptional! He arrived on time , greeted us warmly and provided water , explained the tour points and how the day would go, was talking about each place we stopped at to understand about the place , plus was taking a lot of photos of us with his own initiation which I found really great. Only thing from the tour that was disappointing was the sinkhole and cave area that is part of the tour as due to government closing it down for safety and renovating isn’t worth going at all since you cannot see anything and should be skipped until and if will be accessible again. Plus , when we stopped at Mirbat town , we were taken to a Lebanese restaurant and although the food was amazing and plenty, English menus should be printed and provided to the guests as it’s a place that the tour guide suggests and didn’t really know what was ordering. Thank you beautiful Salalah tour , it was amazing day trip and great service and company provided by our tour guide especially.

East Salalah tour
Sep 2019
This was a very interesting and comprehensive tour of a fascinating part of Oman. Our guide could not do enough for us and had almost become a friend by the end of the day. The only thing stopping me from giving five stars is that our guide's English wasn't the best, so we had difficulty understanding him at times.

Fantastic short weekend in Salalah with Beautiful Salalah.
Jul 2019
Actually, I visited Salalah in July 2019 but only now I had a chance to write a review. Prior to my visit, I was searching for Tour companies on the net. I have been in contact with many of them but Beautiful Salalah is the one I decided to go for.
The team is very professional and hospitable. I asked them lots of question before making the booking and yet they were very patient in answering all my concerns. They even helped me to book the hotel for me in a very good location and the best price ever. Much lower than booking.com and other online travel agency. Although I pay direct to the hotel but they got me a very good deal. The hotel name was Hamdan Plaza. When I arrived in the hotel I was treated very well and when they knew that I am booked through Beautiful Salalah, they upgraded my room to a bigger one and did not even ask for my Credit Card or other deposit. I offer them but they said “ you can pay when you check out sir “ 
They provided me with all details information in advance through my whatsapp on what to do, where to go, how long will the trip be and the contact details of the guide. On the day, the tour Guide his name Hafeed called me and he came to the hotel to pick me up 5 minutes earlier than expected. He was very polite, knowledgeable, funny and helpful. It was an amazing and unforgettable experience and all of this because I have made my correct decision to go with Beautiful Salalah.
I booked 1 full-day tour and ½ day tour.

East Salalah private tour full day and West Salalah half day private tour
Aug 2019 • Friends
We booked our tour with Beautiful Salalah at the very last minute but they were very accommodating. I was coordinating with Hussein he was really helpful and kind hearted.

The tour guide Ahmed was excellent. He was patient with us and explained to us on the history of each touristic spot. He was jovial and we didn’t feel the time pass as the distance was a bit from the place we stayed. Ahmed was kind enough to take us to a local Omani restaurant where the owners wife is head chef in the kitchen . We loved the food . I must say an amazing initiative for Omani ladies. Keep it up.

Highly recommend this tour company and the tour guide.

We had an amazing experience in Salalah thanks to Hussein , Ahmed and Ahmed the tour guide from Beautiful Salalah tours.

Visiting East Salalah is one of the Must excursions to plan when you are in Salalah, Oman and "East Salalah Tour - Full Day - By Beautiful Salalah" is the best tour plan you can pick to do this as they provide excellent guided private tours for a very reasonable rates. Special thanks goes to our tour guide Mr. Hafez for making the trip fun and remarkable. He came with us to show and explain all the places and he was friendly too. Also, he was very responsible and drove the vehicle cautiously since we had an infant on-board.

East Salalah Full Day Tour and West Salalah Half Day Tour
Feb 2019 • Solo
As other reviewers have said, Beautiful Salalah tours do a great job. My guide for the full day east tour was Mr Musallam who was very friendly and really knew the area. The archaeological site at Sumhuram was outstanding was were the old forts and Wadi Darbat. Mr Ali and Ms Gretchen were my guides for the west half day tour. They were again very friendly and I enjoyed hearing about their passion of the area. My favourite was the beauty of Mughsayl beach and the blow holes
