What do our clients think of our small group adventure holidays?

This trip exceeded expectations. It is a very interesting country with beautiful scenery and very friendly people. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. The accommodation was very good and we had two different guides/drivers (for the trip and Salalah extension) who were very different but both knowledgeable and together made the holiday a great success.

I felt very happy and confident in Oman and felt that it is a safe and interesting destination. Said (our guide) made the whole trip interesting, fun and generally he put a lot into his role. A very nice man.

Tour guide Said Al Salati was excellent in every respect. I have travelled a great deal and have rarely come across a better guide. He was "up there" in the top two or three (out of dozens all over the world). Couldn't be faulted.

Veronica Timperley, UK

We loved both the desert - we could have happily spent two nights there - and the absolutely stunning mountains.

Stanley Slaughter, UK

Overall a very good holiday. I particularly enjoyed crossing the Wahiba Sands from end to end on the first day of my private tour. I loved the sense of isolation and the dramatic scenery, all 75 miles of it !!! On the return journey, the new coastal road near Salalah enabled me to view what is possibly some of the most spectacular scenery I have ever seen !

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour...seeing Oman and meeting with locals was an amazing experience. It is a country of such differences....mountains one minute...desert the next. The local people are so friendly and welcoming and eager to speak about their country and culture. With a private guide we went to places that we never would have on our own...including some great places to eat...where the locals go..always a good sign. Highlights for us were seeing the turtles, and a great living museum which is an old Omani house where you see local ladies making bread, sandlewood oil etc and get to learn about Omani life. We also had a great time in the desert..what an experience. We would highly recommend this tour. Chilling for five days in a lovely hotel was the perfect end!

Mrs. J Rees, UK

Oman is a sleepy Middle Eastern country with so much to offer - sun, sea, desert, and mountains. The itinerary was excellent. Thank you for a very special time in Oman.

Meree, Australia

Our guide was a mine of information. He delighted in taking us not only to places on our itinerary but stopped at many other places of interest along the way.

We had a very enjoyable time and our local guide was great.
