Review of: Wadi Shab Coastal Trekking 4X4
This trip was so good and the guide was very friendly. The guide tell us about oman history and culture and a lot of other stories. He gave us time to see a lot of places and taking pictures and wondering around. We were very happy about this firm! 😊

A very warm, caring and welcoming family tour company that made me feel at ease and comfortable and accepted me as if I was part of the family. Their guide cared and guided me throughout the tour and showed and educated me on the history and culture of all the places we visited. Nasser was a very popular character and therefore his introductions gave me an insight to the warmth of the Omani people and their culture. The tour was well organised, varied and interesting with a wealth of knowledge on the history of each place on the itinerary. Tahia the owner phoned every day checking on my well being.It exceeded all my expectations,I shall certainly return to Oman and Vacation Packages Oman Thank you!…

Review of: Wahiba Sands Desert Safari 4X4
The tour guides on the day were really nice and friendly. Pick up and logistics worked very well. However, we didn’t get to do any dune bashing, just reached a dune, walked for 15mins and got back into the car. This was somewhat underwhelming, having done a 6hr round trip and expecting this to be the highlight of the trip. Also there wasn’t much flexibility in terms of seeing the sunset, contradicting past reviews. Having done a similar trip in the UAE, this one was overwhelmingly disappointing. …

Thank you for sharing your tour experience, we truly appreciate our guests reviews weather it was describing good or bad experience, we take it very serious as we believe that we can learn from it to get better and provide our best service for our future clients. Kindly accept our apologies for the disappointment we have caused to you, we want to explain to you the difference between UAE and Oman, regarding the tour time, as you know Oman is almost 4 or 5 times the size of Emirates, so the distance between places can take more that 1 to 2 hours to travel between attractions, we get that kind of impression regularly from our guests who had visited U.A.E before coming to Oman. Regarding the dune bashing, as we mentioned the nature difference between Oman and U.A.E., we taking into considerations the safety of our guests as in Wahiba sands (desert) there is low network coverage and it can be difficult to ask for help in case of any emergency so we prefer to do light sand driving. Regarding sunset watching, we recommend you to do overnight in Wahiba, because in day tour you only have limited time to return to Muscat and performing sunset watching can extend the tour time up to 4 or 5 hours. Finally we want to take the chance to thank you once again for sharing your experience with us and our guests, we promise to do our best to avoid the same thing from happening in the future.

Review of: Muscat City Tour Half Day
We had a 7hr layover in Muscat. I reached out to Majed and he arranged a 4hr city private tour with a guide. The tour was awesome to get a glance about Muscat. I would definitely recommend it to folks who doesn't want to spend 6+hrs at airport waiting for a connecting flight.
