My wife and I did the 5 hour West Salalah tour with Karel Tomastik on 8 February 2020.
Pick up time was 9am and he arrived at our hotel right on time. It was a surprise to us that Karel was Czech. My wife is Czech too so they conversed in Czech occasionally during our trip.
Karel also speaks perfect English and Arabic. He has a Master's degree from Charles University in Prague, in Arabic language and History of the Middle East.
Karel was excellent in his knowledge of all the areas we visited, and we appreciated his additional commentary while driving about the history of the region. His driving was excellent and the car we travelled in was clean, comfortable, and in excellent condition.
Karel didn't rush us at all, letting us explore the places at our leisure, considering we had to be back at our hotel at 2pm so we could shower, clean up, and check out by 2.30pm. We stopped off at the Al Hafa Fort Market where my wife bought a cashmere scarf and we also bought some Frankincense products.
We arrived back at our hotel at 2pm. Overall, excellent tour and we appreciated Karel for his knowledge, driving, commentary, and not rushing us. We recommend Takamui Travel for your Salalah tours.
