Excellent tour of the wadi and dunes, our driver was very polite, drove safely and full of knowledge. Would recommend highly it is worth the price, not much to do in Muscat so great idea to book this

Poor from start to finish. Driver late picking up from hotel, driving like maniac to fort. Dunes really not worth the 2 hour drive, as when you get to summit it feels like you're on a rubbish tip. Whilst on the summit the driver told us that the drive to the `red dunes' is much more worthwhile. Not even worth one star but couldn't complete survey without giving it a rating!! Very disappointing.

At times, the 4x4 feels like we’re teetering at a 45 degree angle, sliding down the sand banks and oversteering out of control. It is, of course, all part of the ride. The car kicks up outrageous amounts of sand as we plough through, spraying the (mercifully closed) windows as if they’re enduring a blackout.The second major stop of our day trip is Wadi Bin Khalid – one of the country’s most famous beauty spots. Once there, we walk along a traditional Omani water system; a man-made channel that snakes gradually downhill from its underground source in the mountains. It’s a wonderful spot, and when the sun gets too hot, you can dive into the surprisingly deep gorge for a swim. It’s what the great outdoors should be about. Note from Viator: This review is from David Whitley, who wrote a detailed article on his trip to Oman over on the Viator blog.

Excellent guide who was very good with our 6 year old. Country is amazing and the desert safari was very exciting.
