A tough and dangerous hike

Discover the South and Wadi Shab from Muscat | Mar 2020
It was not made clear enough how tough the walk was to get to the pools at the Wadi. The route to get there was not clear, particularly as we were on our own. I had to leave my wife 2/3rds of the way as she was struggling. This meant I had to dash to the pools then return very quickly. There was no phone signal if you hit a problem. We were never told you had to swim to get to the cave and waterfall. The guide should have escorted us. The audio description said we were at the best beach in Oman but we were taken to an awful part - when we continued our journey we could see there was a long beach but we didn't stop there. We could have had more time at the sinkhole as that was not a disappointment.

Memorable for the wrong reasons

Nizwa Full Day Tour from Muscat | Feb 2020
Firstly. the driver Nasseem was very amicable and drove safely. However, this tour wasn't what it was advertised as. The pick up in the morning was laborious and tiring. It seemed to take a long time to get to Nizwa with smaller maybe unnecessary stops along the way. When we got to Nizwa, the Souqs were closing and some of them closed already and there isn't much else to see. We did not visit Nizwa fort.....the lunch meal included in the price was okay but not typically Omani. We went to Jabeel fort which I thought was beautiful. The Omani landscape is impressive throughout the drive but this was a very disappointing day trip unfortunately and quite expensive to boot!

Oman is truly beautiful

Discover the South and Wadi Shab from Muscat | Feb 2020
I loved the experience , I wish we had more time at the sinkhole I don’t think 30min was enough , I also wish we could have gone down to the beach at Fins, we literally stopped for 5minutes.

Incredible Views

Discover the South and Wadi Shab from Muscat | Feb 2020
Great service with the hotel pick up, the lunch and the time given to US. Also appreciate the audio guide. Driver didn t say much but was very kind all the time. Wadi shab hiking was good and pratical even without a guide since we were in Group. It would be nice to have more indications before leaving just to point out it s a slippery place. Must do anyway cause the view is amazing

Missing tour operator.

We could not locate tour operator. The information from Viator did not include tour operator name or phone number. We finally hired a local gut to give us a tour.

Splendid Muscat

Muscat Half Day City Tour | Feb 2020
This is an excellent way to get a taste of Muscat when you only have a day in port. We did the tour on 30 January 2020 and it met our needs. The mosque and museum we visited with cost included were standouts as far as our expectations were concerned The positives were the guide who was knowledgeable, the driver was very accommodating and the pick up at the port. Unfortunately we were delayed at the start by late passengers and the wi - fi did not work on the bus. We will continue to use Viator

Beautiful Nature. Minimal Guide Interaction

Discover the South and Wadi Shab from Muscat | Feb 2020
Wadi Shab is a gorgeous hike and lives up to the pictures. A couple parts take some agility, but it’s a “doable” hike through the valley and past a couple small-plot farms. The driver was good, but if you are expecting a guide, lower your expectations. Basically, you get on a bus, plug in your audio guide headphones, and start cruising. The driver does not really explain the itinerary for the day or what you are about to see. He just points you in the direction of the trail and off you go. Same with lunch and the sinkhole. It’s a nice way to see a different side of Oman though.

Muscat 1/2 day tour

Muscat Half Day City Tour | Feb 2020
The tour was well organized and the guide was very nice. I would have liked to have entrance fees included into the Opera House (which was stunning from the outside) but we did not have enough time to go in nor were the entrance fees part of the tour. Could have skipped the Fish Market (my personal opinion - others may have enjoyed it). Time at the Souk was good and as long as you asked the vendors for what you wanted, as opposed to what they were hoisting on you, you could do well with your purchases. Overall, a good over view of the city of Muscat.

Nizwa, worth the effort

Nizwa Full Day Tour from Muscat | Dec 2019
Pick-up 8am to 8.30am Prompt, at 8am Only one other passenger, Enoch from HK. Whilst filling up with petrol, some random Omani guy clambered on board and he and the driver spoke loudly in Arabic. Almost drowning out the English audio. Turns out he's a tourguide in training. We should have been told. Good infrastructure in Oman. Dual carriageway through the mountains. First stop, walked up an incline to view a palm tree grove and abandoned 500yo village. Present day village name translates to "The Cool of the Bananas". Some Zanzibar architectural influences. IZWA SOUQ One hour in Nizwa. "No time to see the Fort (5 rials), yet there is always too much time for coffee, food-tasting and the set lunch ! Lunch was far too much food, which we wasted. I realise that the two drivers needed a break JABREEN CASTLE BAHLA CASTLE Bahla was home to the "Djinns" (Genies). A beautiful day ended in a rainy drive back to Muscat.

The tour is great. Viator description is not accurate, book it with GREYLINE!!!

Discover the South and Wadi Shab from Muscat | Dec 2019
The tour was amazing! A great alternative to private tours, and way cheaper. In fact we had our own private tour since we were only 3 person inside the mini bus (me, my boyfriend, and another person which took the tour). The places we visited were amazing, and the guide, Mr. ABDULLAH, so kind and helpful (we saw camels in the middle of the dessert and he stooped and took picture of us with the camels, and at the end he doped us where we indicated, giving us additional information about Muscat). Inside the car we had an audio guide so interesting providing us with information about omani lifestyle, politics, and tourist attractions. The lunch was a good buffet in a resort restaurant on the seaside. BUT, there is a big BUT. This was a GREYLINE tour, so I highly recommend to book it direclty from their website. Probably they offer better discounts, and accurate information. The description is misleading. You are not gonna see half of the things mentioned there. The only place we stopped was the Wadi Shab and the sinkhole. Not the Wadi Tiwi, the village Finns, nor Dahab, and no stop in the "picturesque port town of Quriyat". No 4x4 car (we didn't mind the old authentic bus, but at least should be mentioned).

Tour was great, but guide no go

Discover the South and Wadi Shab from Muscat | Dec 2019
I was left to be the last one being dropped of (solo female traveller) and guide kept asking me out for drinks. I was scared because it was late in the evening, I didn't have Internet - he knew that and I was left by myself with him. Dropped an email to viator on this matter - no reply!
