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.
