Sunshine tours truly go above and beyond the job description. I booked this tour THE DAY BEFORE my sisters from the U.K were due to visit because of Covid uncertainty and the owner (Mohammed Thani) answered the phone, explained prices, tailored the best deal to suit our needs and sent a typed plan within the hour. Very professional, honest and efficient.

Our guide Rashid was so chill and lovely, it felt like an uncle taking us out on a family trip. I would highly recommend for all female groups who want to travel around with peace of mind and experience Oman to the fullest. A huge thank you to Rashid for looking out for us, standing in queues for us and teaching us about all the delicious food Oman has to offer. We forgot our bags and Rashid dropped them off AND gifted us with some delicious date sweets. Above and beyond.

Everything!
From the Sultan Qaboos Mosque to the desert, turtle beach, mountains, the souks, forts etc..
It is so peaceful & the views are breathtaking.
The Omani locals are soooo nice 😊
My guide was Hamoudi & he was fantastic.
Friendly, knowledgeable, patient & a keen sense of humour.
I felt safe with him as a solo female traveller.
I booked my trip literally last minute - 5 days before the tour started - & Sunshine Tours were accommodating with the itinerary & payment.
In fact, they gave me much more for the same price a UK based company offered.
Try the food in local restaurants, much cheaper & tastes just as good.
It was hot (> 30 degrees) & some of the treks can be moderately difficult: wear a hat & good trainers.
Am already planning my next trip, cannot wait to return!
Thank you Hamoudi, Muhammed & Maymouna. May God bless you all! 😇

We couldn't have chosen a better travel company for our trip to Oman.
 
During the booking process, I liaised with Maymona and Mohammed who were both very patient and accommodating to our requests, questions and changes to the itinerary. We booked an 8-day private tour with 3 extra days at the end. The price of the tour was the best value for money of all the quotes that we received from various tour companies. All accommodation, transfers, transport, entrance fees, breakfast and dinners were included. There were no hidden costs.
 
The tour with Sunshine Tours Oman was excellent! It was well-paced and thorough. The trip was filled with a variety of different experiences which we got to see and enjoy with a fantastic tour guide. From swimming in the breathtaking Wadi's to riding camels in the magnificent Wahiba Sands desert, Oman has many beautiful sights to see.
 
Our tour guide Mr Rashid was very knowledgeable, kind and patient. He shared so much of the Omani history and culture with us.
He spoilt me with my favourite Karak tea every day and my husband with his favourite lebnani bread with Chips Oman :)
Mr Rashid went the extra mile to take us to the best local shops and ensured that we got good deals. He even allowed us to drive on the dunes in the Wahiba Sands desert which added to the fun experience. We shared many meals, laughs and conversations with Mr Rashid, making it feel like we are family.
 
Ahmed (Mr Mohammed's son) is a rising star. He did the airport pick up and drop off and also took us for our COVID test.
 
What stands out the most about Sunshine Tours Oman is their hospitality, generosity and how genuinely nice everyone is. Mr Mohammed also invited us for a lovely dinner at his house. On our free day he heard that we plan on going by taxi to the Muttrah souk (which is about 25km away), he insisted to take us and he even surprised us with a delicious lunch at our guesthouse on one of our free days. It is these things and so much more which made our experience with Sunshine Tours Oman absolutely amazing!

We've booked nearly all our trips in Oman with this company. We were lucky to get Juma Said as our Tourguide for all our trips. He is great and shares his profound knowledge on every occasion. The long car drives we got fast to a point, where we've shared personal stories. We even visited the area he is living in. We got a really good insight to life in Oman as he was answering all our questions. Drinking fresh coffee on a sand dune for sunset and sunrise will always be remembered. The tours were : half day muscat, 2 day trip to the desert with several stops and on Friday the tour to Nizwa.
Also I do not want to forget to mention the professional way, the booking office is working. Contact via WhatsApp is working perfect, also with the guides.

I arrived in Muscat and Oman, disappointed at having lost one day due to the carelessness of Air India and cancellation of my flight, we had just about three whole days,
not knowing what to do, we came across the site of Sunshine tours,
after that, what has happened is just magical,
starting from the first telephonic talk with Mr Mohammed, their owner to all what happened later,
it was just brilliant service all the way.
From then on, Mr Hammoud took over, we did a half day tour of Muscat, a full day tour of Wahiba sands,
and a full day tour of Niizwa and Jebel Akhdar with him.
He is a brilliant guide, a very knowledgeable person, always perseveres to give the best experience and an excellent and safe driver
But what endeared him to us, my wife and me,
was that he is a very very good human being, very caring, very friendly and very kind.
We started with a guide, and are ending with a new found friend in him, and also a new support system in Oman in the form of Sunshine tours.
I intend to come here again and do more and longer tours with them, surely in the future.
To anyone coming to Muscat and Oman, I would recommend very strongly to to do their sightseeing and touring with Sunshine tours.
I have fallen in love with Oman, that only due to Mr Hammoud and Sunshine tours.
God bless!

I just came back from a 2 week holiday with Sunshine Tours Oman on an extensive tour all over Oman for X-Mas/New Years. We are a small group of 5 experienced travelers from Hong Kong and quite selective, we made last minute requests and numerous changes to the itinerary, but Mohammed and his team was so responsive and helped processed all the changes and every request.

We flew into Muscat connecting through Bangkok, Mohammed and his team took care of us once we landed and immediately escorted us to our hotel to begin our adventure. The next morning, we went to Hawaiyat Najm (known also as the Bimmah Sinkhole or the Dabab Sinkhole), White Sand Beach, and Wadi Tiwi. Wadi Tiwi is an amazing oasis, it is great for nature lovers and adventure seekers as you can swim through the valley after hiking to see the cave. We ended the evening at the Ras Al Ginz Turtle reserve and was lucky enough to witness turtles laying eggs. The next day, we ventured to Sur for amazing pictures of the coast, a visit to the Dhow (sail vessel) factory, Ghazal farm and headed to Wahiba Sands Desert to catch the sunset. We stayed for 2 nights in desert camp. Afterwards we headed to other destinations: Nizwa, Gebal Shams and Daymanyat Island for snorkeling with turtles and sea life. My friends and I also booked a night to watch performance at the Opera house, exotic shopping at the Mutrah Souq (market) for frankincense and other goodies. We ended NYE celebration at the Ritz Carlton Al Bustan Palace for a fabulous dinner. The best aspect of the trip however, are the Omani people. You will find that the people of Oman are very friendly with open hearts, the people are very pure.

We were lucky enough to have Hamood, the best guide. Hamood was very flexible on our itinerary, he made suggestions along the way and his humor made the trip very fun and memorable. The guide speaks fluent English and is very knowledgeable of each location. The drivers are skillful and safe, vehicles are very clean and tidy, the guides and drivers took very good care of us. The guides are not just knowledgeable, but they also know where to go for good photos.

During the trip planning stage and the entire trip, Mohammed and his crew are so flexible and accommodating. They really understand what you need, Sunshine Tours Oman is not about taking your money, but they provide fantastic services and they set very high standards for themselves. I highly recommend Sunshine Tour Oman.

My husband and I came to Oman for the first half of our honeymoon, and we had 2 day trips booked with Sunshine Tours to see parts of Oman outside the capital city of Muscat. Words cannot express how amazing our tour experience was.

Our tour guide Majid was so wonderful - a loveable personality who also knew every little detail and hidden gem about the areas we were visiting. Our first day was spent touring the Sink Hole, white sand beach, and Wadi Shab, which became an amazing hiking and cave swimming experience on the perfect warm weather day! Majid was great at not just giving us the background on these places, but also guiding us on land and in water expertly (the wadi can be a bit challenging to swim!) We finished the day with a yummy lunch at a local restaurant and then a trip to Wadi Tiwi which offered the most amazing hilltop views.

For our second day, Majid convinced us to start our tour early (6am) to see the goat market in Nizwa, and it did not disappoint! While we also toured the souk afterwards, seeing the early morning goat market and the families that were out with their animals was one of my favorite moments. Majid navigated us expertly through the souk, where we saw vegetables, live animals, dates, jewelry and more.

We then made our way to the Nizwa fort, where we learned about the history of Nizwa, the fort and local culture. My husband was able to jump in and dance with the local men and boys who dressed in traditional garb and danced and sang throughout the compound.

Our day finished with a drive up to Green Mountain to experience the priceless views from the top, as well as a brief stop to the hotel which sits on the site known for Diana and Charles’ visit back in the 80s. We then went to Falaj Al-Khatmeen to see the local irrigation system that supplies water to the garden areas, followed by a gorgeous drive through tree cover and past the lush gardens. The pinnacle end the trip was a STEEP ascent up a side road and to the top of a major hill to get one final view over the tree canopy.

I can’t say enough about how amazing our tour guide Majid was - a knowledgable and engaging guide, as well as a wonderful and fun person to spend 2 days with. I was also expressed with Maymona with Sunshine Tours, who helped me arrange everything by email and reached out by WhatsApp to confirm details the day prior. We highly recommend Majid and Sunshine Tours Oman to anyone visiting Oman and wanting to see it from a local’s point of view.

The nature's beauty and relics of the city's ancient history are places one cannot resist to step their feet upon. Last Friday's tour with family and friends were indeed heart warming, relaxing, inspirational and imagination triggering.

We visited Wadi Al Mur in Jalan, the Castle relic in Jalan Bani Bu Ali and the Sacred Mosque Al Hamouda in Jalan Bani Bu Ali. It was a day tour full of obscurity, and unpredictable stories about this place and it's history itself. Visiting this kind of places were very honorable especially for us, who's mostly sees city like places.

Wadi Al Mur in Jalan was an old village, but suddenly because of the climate change lots of stuff changes in that place. As the deserts are expanding all over the world village's were invaded by the desert sands. Visitors, travelers or the locals are still coming to rediscover the city which was once engulfed by the desert.

Castle relic in Jalan Bani Bu Ali an ancient castle in this particular region of Oman. An ancient castle continued to crumble back to where it belongs, still manages to give us an impressive sight. One of the significant facts of the castle is it's advantage during wars.

Sacred Mosque Al Hamouda in Jalan Bani Bu Ali, the hundred year old mosque is actually an architectural masterpiece that has kept it's tradition alive up until now. A mosque that has uniqueness to it especially it's domes.

Humble thanks to our commendable tour guide Mr. Abdullah Al Jahwari whom I can describe as hospitable, knowledgeable, humorous and respectable guide.

We had a great experience touring Oman and a large part is thanks to our guide, Saif who works for Sunshine. His motto to us was “we can organise whatever my guests would like to do most”. He has an excellent attitude - patient, good company to have and is knowledgeable about Oman’s history and culture. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring Wahiba sands and all the Wadis ( Bani Khalid and Shan) and learning more about Oman. We spent a day with another guide Mr Nabhani who also spoke excellent English, safe driving and went out of his way to make our experience a memorable one. Both guides spoke highly working for Sunshine Tours which speaks volumes of the way the business is run, motivating the best guides to work with them to provide guests with a good experience. We had a very good experience right from the beginning when we were planning our itinerary with Sunshine Tours (thanks Maymona!) right to the end when we were dropped at the airport (thanks Saed!) We would highly recommend anyone visiting Oman and to engage Sunshine tours for a good and holistic experience!
