My friend and I were a little hesitant to pay such a hefty price for a day tour. However, after spending the day with our guide, Mohammed, we both agreed that we would have paid double. Our guide Mohammed made the day trip worth every penny. He was one of the most patient, friendliest, humblest, and gracious guides we have ever had. He took his time taking us around and made several additional stops at our request. When we arrived to the Wadi Shab pools, he went the extra mile to swim with us and show us around the caves (unlike many other guides who stayed on shore while their patrons swam). My friend was also a little hesitant to swim but Mohammed took his time with her and swam with her to reassure her that everything was ok. When she needed to take breaks, he waited with her and talked her through it. Our lunch was fabulous and again Mohammed was very gracious at the lunch table. He really made us feel like family. We will definitely be returning to Oman and definitely requesting Mohammed as our guide. Thanks again!
