Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

About a mile (1.6 km) off Musandam’s shores, Telegraph Island is so-called for being the site of a British military telegraph outpost in the 1800s. You can still see the remains of the station building atop the now deserted island.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

We loved the first trip here so much that we came back again. Very well organised as always. Quality of staff are second to none. You will be pleasantly impressed with the Omani people and their culture, even if it is a short while.

AMAZING. Highly professional. Our hotel pick up was on time it was a mini-bus and the driver gave a great commentary as we drove through the city to spotlessly clean, petrol station and mini-mart where we transferred to a bigger bus with an equally delightful driver/guide. Drive through desert to border was interesting - made more so by our guide's commentary. Border-crossing was thorough, professional and friendly. Oman was amazing. The dhow cruise was the most wonderful day. The crew consisted of our captain, our guide and an able-seaman/waiter/food and beverage organiser. The day supplied unlimited bottles of water, Pepsi which was a fresh fruit juice choice of orange or peach - also endless supply, sweet black tea, Arab espresso, apples, bananas, afternoon tea and of course LUNCH. My goodness - how I managed to swim after all I ate was a miracle. Our guide spoke five languages and had recently returned to his Oman village after 20 years of international working life. The love for country was palpable. The water, the landscape, the DOLPHINS, the fun - all amazing. This was our last day in Dubai and was the best way to finish our first and all too short 4-day visit. We don't have a single negative of this trip. We did our homework, knew what to expect and then got more and better than expected. Musandam travel - thank you so much. PS - everyone else, can't recommend enough!

One of the most spectacular places I've ever visited in my life! Nature at its best - incredible scenario! We got the chance to swim on breathtaking location unspoiled by today's modern amenities. Mustafa, the driver who took us to Oman was very knowledgeable and turned a somewhat long ride, into a very interesting one. Make sure you don't fall asleep on the way, particularly on the Omani side of the border, so you can see the breathtaking Fjords from above. This is very much an outdoor treat, so if you are expecting luxury amenities, etc this may not be for you. The food was very good and the crew on the dhow very nice and knowledgeable. I highly recommend.

This was a great tour. Nice to get away from the hustle bustle of the Dubai city. It does take some time leaving UAE and getting into Oman and back, so patience is required. The swimming was nice as it is really hot there. Lunch was great. The driving in Oman was a little scary.

P.S. The drive wasn't dreadful. The only dreadful part was that we were riding with some obnoxious Germans who were really rude which isn't a reflection of the tour itself. Even the women were flaunting their fat around in bikinis in a very conservative country. It was inappropriate and disgusting.

WE really enjoyed the boat ride, the staff on the boat were great and was very pretty and tranquil. Didn't realize most of the other people on the tour would only speak German, so there was a lot of translating happening as we were the only Americans. Also didn't realize that it was a 3.5 hour Journey just to get the the Boat from our hotel. So spent a total of 7 hours in the car, If this was made clear to us in the beginning not sure we would have booked.
