        IMO Don't cruise with Royal Caribbean!! And here's why...
        What ever you do...DONT book a cruise with Royal Caribbean International...they will RIP YOU OFF!! We book an average of 3 - 6 cruises a year, usually with NCL...I made a reservation for a year from now and they will not refund my deposit!! Over $1400.00!! Their website is a disaster with links that do not work and hard to navigate...when I called them to speak to someone at 7:28 EST this morning...I got a recording saying that their office is closed...call back during their working hours from 7am to 2am EST...which is posted on their website WITH the phone number to call...I had to call back and pretend that I was making a NEW reservation to actually speak to a person! They did allow me to cancel the drink package that I purchased...BUT, the "cancellation" receipt that I received from them shows the refund amount as $0!! WTH?!! I can't believe that their business practices are not CRIMINAL!! I think one of our Government Agencies need to investigate their business practices! I could understand if I was cancelling a reservation a month prior to sail date...BUT a whole YEAR FROM NOW?!! INEXCUSABLE!!! They have just cemented our terrible experience with them and we will NEVER take another Royal Caribbean International cruise again!! If anyone asks me who to use to have a wonderful cruise experience, it will definitely NOT BE Royal Caribbean International!!!

        Very prompt pickup and off to Nizra -wonderful tour of the souqs, fortress and castle. Then a very scenic drive Jebal Shams followed by lunch of the best schwarma ever. A long day but so worth it.

        Latifa tour
        Wow ! Our guide Aziz was the epitome of Omani hospitality . He treated us with such care and kindness and went above and beyond expectation . Despite floods in Oman and adapting the tour to suit conditions he was patient and safe and showed us so much of this beautiful country , culture and landscape with experiences that made this tour unique . Everyday was full and interesting and we trusted the choices Aziz made and he was also very flexible with our requests and adapted the itinerary . We saw a side of Oman that we weren’t expecting - wet weather - but this made the whole experience more powerful , especially the dessert, the crossings of Wadis and stopping to assist a Bedouin family pull their car from being bogged in the river showed us a side of the community that all helps each other and ready to stop and help when needed . We felt like guests and travellers and not at all like tourists . Aziz hosted us at his home for lunch on the last day and this was an absolute delight and surprise . I cannot praise our tour and guide enough and would recommend to any visitor to Iman if they want to see the REAL OMAN Well done Aziz , we couldn’t have experienced this without you ❤️

        TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE
        Khasab is an extremely ordinary place with nothing attractive at all to see and enjoy. I would not suggest this place at all for sightseeing.

        Fabulous day in the desert with a stop at the Wadi
        The day started smoothly, my guide, Khaled being on time and ready to guide me through the sands of Oman. He knows everything from geography, history, and local traditions, and this made the trip even more interesting. We passed a small souq where he explained the use of every item and their use in local traditions. We then went to a Bedouin house to chill and enjoy some Omani coffee. There is the option there to go Dune bashing, but I opted out. One can also go for a camel ride there. I opted to go in the Dunes for a photo session and just admire the Nature. Afterwards, we went to Wadi Bani Khaled to cool off. I never felt rushed, and could really take the time to swim and admire the lush vegetation of the Wadi. All in all it was all that I expected from such a tour.

        One of the best experiences!
        Khalid was the best guide one could ask for!! Extremely attentive, great conversation, and always sharing interesting facts about the place. He was always willing to take cool pictures and videos of me, which meant that, as a solo traveler, I didn’t have any problem enjoying Oman to the fullest. Amazing experience all around!

        Exceptional trip with Khaled
        The tour was great and my guide, Khaled, was exceptional! Besides the scheduled stops at Nizwa souq and fort, Al Hamra & Misfat, he also made sure I saw the village Bait al Safah which was impressive. We had a great lunch during the trip and throughout the drive we talked about Oman, the people, culture, politics, football...Khaled knew it all. This is a tour you shouldn't miss if you are in the Muscat area! 6 stars out of 5!

        Beautifull friendly Oman
        At the first morning Azziz from Oman Day Tours was waiting with a big smile in the lobby. He informed what our Points of Interests were, so he adapted part of the trip to our wishes. Oman delivered excellent Hotel rooms. A trip never to forget and giving us the envy of discovering the rest of Oman and we will surely contact Azziz again. Job well done Azziz

        Best Omani experience
        This experience was amazing!! We were able to discover another part of Oman, with all its interesting history and facts. All of that was possible thanks to Muneer, who was our incredible guide!! He was kind, helpful and patient answering the 181839 questions we had about the country, culture, food, politics, economy, food and everything basically! He made the experience an unforgettable one and allowed us to really get to know the country. We would do it again without any doubt, so we highly recommend it!

        Wadi Bani & Wahibi Desert Safari
        The hotel pickup was right on time, and our tour guide Abdulla was very friendly and professional. He gave us great information on the various sites. He also told us some interesting facts about some of the Omani culture. We had terrific day- Wadi Bani Khalid and the Wahibi desert should be on the “must see” list for any visit to Muscat or the surrounding area. Highly recommend the late morning tour so you can the sunset from a Wahibi sand dune.

        Review 5 day tour (DINA)
        We were picked up at our hotel in Muscat at 08.00 am by our guide Khalid in a spacious 4x4 car (we were the only guests). We then drove to a sinkhole and further to Wadi Shab. There we did a short 45min hike with Khalid to the first pool and then walked further into the Wadi by ourselves. Although it was quite busy at the wadi, the experience was still great! After that we drove to our first hotek, the turtle beach resort. The resort has a nice beach and the dinner there was great. At around 09:00 pm we visited the turtle sanctuary in Ras al Jinz where we saw one giant mother turtle and two baby turtles. Amazing! The next day we quickly stopped at a dhow factory in Sur and the continued to Wadi Bani Khalid. Again, after a small hike, we went swimming in the Wadi. The Wadi was also a little bit crowded but we still had a great time. In the afternoon we drove to our next hotel which was the oryx dessert resort. We drove with our 4x4 car on a dune next to the resort and watched the dessert sunset which was amazing. The food at the resort was also amazing. Please note that an extensive 4x4 “dune blasting” car ride is not included in the package but can be booked at the resort. However, Khalid was so nice to drive a little bit off road on the way to the resort. Thanks for that! The next day we stopped at various ancient cities and visited several irrigation systems, some of them hundreds of years old. This shows you how the Omani people were able to grow vegetable and fruits in apparently dry regions. On that day we headed towards Nizwa were we arrived in the early afternoon. Since there were no more activities planed on that day, we walked to the city center (4km, Khalid offered to drive us!) and explored the old city of Nizwa ourselves. Dinners not included in Nizwa, so we found ourselves a nice Shawarma place. The next day was a Friday and we headed early for the cattle market in Nizwa. We recommend, that you plan your tour to be in Nizwa on a Friday. The cattle market is really something to see! After visiting the Souq for some shopping and the amazing Nizwa fort we headed for our final stay at the Jabal Shams Resort. The views of the “great canyon of Arabia” on the way and around the resort were amazing. We took many great pictures the cliff of the canyon. Please note that we arrived there in the early afternoon and that there was not much time to do extensive hiking around the canyon. There is a hiking trail near the resort, but you should inform the touring company in advance if you want to do more hiking. Again, the views on Jabal Shams and the canyon were amazing. After the breakfast and two short stops we drove back to Muskat where we arrived in the early afternoon. All in all, we had a great tour! The hotels and the resorts were all nice and so was the food. However, it was our guide Khalid who made the tour especially great! Firstly, he spoke very good English, he was very kind and polite, and he had great knowledge on the sights we visited and the history of Oman. We had many great conversations. Secondly, he is a very calm and safe and driver, which is also a good thing. We would definitely recommend this tour, since you see many things in a short period of time, and you don’t have worry about any organizing or booking. A local guide and be driven around also adds safety and comfort. I also think that the price is fair. In a nutshell: Great tour and great guide – would do it again!

      Une superbe expérience au départ de Mascate; l'agence "Oman day tours" est sérieuse et la réservation s'est faite sans problème. Nous avions demandé un 4x4 pour nous 5 et notre demande a été satisfaite. Notre guide "Mohamed" était d'une grande gentillesse et nous a présenté l'histoire et les traditions d'Oman dans un Anglais parfait. Le Wadi Ban Khalid est de toute beauté et l'expérience de conduite dans le sable du désert est également très sympa. Un excellent rapport qualité prix pour cette expérience à vivre.
