Gorgeous tour of spectacular places
Jan 2020
In one round, we visited several unique places in Salalah. The guide is very responsible and knowledgeable. Enough time to inspect places and take photos. I advise everyone to choose this tour for exploring Oman

Wonderful adventure with amazing guide
Nov 2019
We booked the trip 2 days before the requested day and we got an immediate confirmation followed by a confirmation from the guide with the exact information of the pick up. We liked very much that it was only us and the guide, thus we were able to ask anything at any time and we spent as much time as we wanted on each stop. The guide was amazing, showing to us phenomenal views and even hidden sites. He gave also information about the culture, history and current situation of Oman which was also exciting to listen to. I can simply emphasize this trip to anybody who would like to see something extra of Salalah area.

Camel Milk and Arabic Coffee = A Fantastic Cultural Experience
Oct 2019
We spent two days with Karel, a guide as unique and interesting as the sights he showed us with the knowledge and comfort of a local. What we found to be particularly impressive was the manner in which Karel tailored a trip to our time requirements both days, and the flexibility he demonstrated in doing so. Travel distances between the various stages of the trip were minimal and whenever a stop was required, Karel duly obliged. What made the trip particularly special was however Karel's unexpected ability to speak Arabic, something which had a noticeable impact on the Omanis we met and which enabled cultural experiences such as the sharing of camel milk with some resting camel herders, and an impromptu jeep ride towards a natural spring with a young fisherman at the wheel. Takamul are a much smaller company than the others whose land-cruisers roam the Omani landscape like a herd of migrating buffalo, depositing dozens of tourists in each assigned spot with the precision and grace of a German train schedule. Takamul and Karel however allow you to zip in and out, letting you dwell in the more serene locales a little longer if desired, with scant regard for what appears to the people-moving efforts of their larger counterparts. I'd truly recommend him for his professionalism, his knowledge of the area, and his ability to work with you to tailor a trip that you will both enjoy and remember.
