Want the best Desert Tour in Oman, well try this

Why you should use Gulf Leisure, from a very satisfied customer.

We did the two-day desert tour, starting at 8:30 from our Muscat hotel and coming back the following day at around 5 PM. it was brilliant. Our tour guide, Abdullah, was simply fantastic. We did in fact visit all of the

locations mentioned on their two day tour on the website, on the first day. The timing was not rushed, and gave Abdullah the opportunity of organising us to on the second day, visit the seaside town of Sur and we were taken to a Dhow building yard, something which as a sailor I found really wonderful to see. It was clearly off the normal tourist route, so that we were the only people there. Well done again Abdullah.

He was such great fun to be around, excellent English, always happy to take questions, and I asked a lot, and also very erudite. He had so much knowledge of things which surprised us, I guess that comes about from

having done so many tours in the past. And then of course we got to the dune bashing. What a memorable experience, and what a great driver he was, safe on the one hand part adventurous on the other. He then took us back up to the dunes for the sunset, and even suggested that we climbed a high dune which we did, he came as well, and we were so glad that we achieved it as the view was spectacular as the sun went down over the desert. The desert that can't be missed, it really is beautiful.

So overall we were absolutely delighted that we took the tour with Golf Leisure. Abdullah took us for lunch on the second day in the sort of restaurant we wouldn¹t have dreamt going into ourselves, and to be honest we had the best food of our ten-day stay in Oman. Again something he was clever to do, really get us to understand and see the local Omani life, not just the smart buildings of Muscat.

Finally, if you are still worried about using this company, remember that you don't have to pay until you get out of the vehicle and your hotel at the end of the tour. If it doesn't go right then you start discussing price, there's no better statement of this company's attitude to satisfy its customers than that. Forget the totally unwarranted and almost malicious initial post regarding this company, it totally and utterly gives a false impression of them. And don't forget they are headquartered in the UK which could even more give you the assurance if you need it.
