, Dec 2017
The communication from the company was great with confirmation sent and pick up on time. First of all there was a transfer to the port in a comfortable air conditioned mini bus, then we got on a modern boat that held around 20 people. Out in the ocean we were surrounded by hundreds of dolphins. After 30 minutes of watching the dolphins, we were then taken to a shallow cove area to snorkel for around 1 hour. The fish were amazing and we saw a turtle, before heading back to the port. All snorkel gear was included, along with snacks and cold soft drinks. Would highly recommend the tour.

Dolphines Tour

Dolphin Cruise from Muscat | Dec 2019
Nice experience and wonderful landscapes, additional comments the boat's driver found the Dolphins but after finding them, he did not show much interest because we tried to see them more as if other boats did. I also consider that it is very important to advise all the people on the tour that they should take care of the environment and avoid bringing plastic elements and not eating inside the boat because due to the speed people let some elements go.

Mountain Wadis

Private Tour: Wadis and Mountains - Wadi Bani Awf from Muscat | Sep 2019
I was looking for a great experience outside of Muscat and this was it. Nassar was knowledgeable, gracious and fun to have as a guide. The trip was beautiful and incredibly interesting. Mountains were spectacular and great to see the older mountain villages. Nassar and the tour company really went the extra mile to make sure I enjoyed my visit. Would definitely recommend!

Dolphins galore

Dolphin Cruise from Muscat | Dec 2018
The guide didn’t explain anything about the species, but we saw tons of dolphins! (We did the 1000 tour.) Very neat morning activity for site seeing. The view of the land from the water was nice as well. Khimji house of travel was professional and communicative.

Dolphin Cruise from Muscat | Aug 2018

This was such a great tour! We were able to see a ton of dolphins on this particular afternoon -- I was in awe! The company picked me up from my hotel and dropped me off by the boat. The company offered some water and snacks which was extremely helpful. We were on a relatively small boat which was nice and felt a bit more intimate. I was thrilled to see so many dolphins in that space. I'm so glad that I booked this tour, which was a last minute decision -- I would highly recommend it to my networks!

A thoroughly enjoyable evening. The rugged beauty of the Omani coast compares to those of Crete and various Aegean islands. Easy pick up and drop off at our hotel which was in the diplomatic area of Muscat.

Sunset Dhow Cruise from Muscat | Feb 2018

I was picked up from my hotel and enjoyed the tour. HOwever when speaking To others on the tour I realised that I had paid much more than people who had booked through other tour companies. Also, it was difficult to make phone confirmation 24 hours before pick up when I was still travelling. Altogether, pleasant but over priced.

A romantic 'Dhow' cruise up to sunset while viewing all spots of interest along the coast with seagulls flying by. Omani guides were very friendly and served un limited water and sodas in addition to chocolates and nuts, dates and arabic coffee.

Boat ride was fantastic, weather at its best, but no dolphins in sight unfortunately. Captain did his best to find a dolphin in the majestic sea. Will try again in next visit to Muscat.
