This trip would be better later in the year when the roses were out.
We had a friendly and very knowledgeable guide (the most knowledgeable of any tour we took in Muscat) who spoke great english and the 4WD was very comfortable. We had problems as the guides let you explore by yourself and my husband managed to get very lost for 1 and half hours without water in the midday sun. Not the guides fault but maybe a map could be provided so something this serious (in the full sun without water) does not happen again. Not sure the price warrants the tour as although it was a long way from Muscat, there was limited photo opportunities and in reality not a lot to see. The lunch provided was a bit disappointing too and I left most of mine.
