Incredible tour with an amazing guide!
Keaton_R, Jun 2022
Incredible tour. Hamoud was amazing guide, extremely knowledgeable and kind, and just fun to be around. The dunes were amazing to see and we had them all to ourselves. The wadi was an awesome stop and beautiful place to refresh. Can’t recommend Sunshine Tours enough. You can tell this is their passion and they do it flawlessly
Live like a bedouin, for a day at least.

This was a great tour. Said arrived at my flat early in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. We drove to the desert which took a couple of hours. Said was great company, telling me about his family, the culture in Oman and many other things. We stopped for karak, a kind of chai that is very popular in Oman and some Omani bread, both were a real treat. The tour included some 4 wheeling in the sand, something you should really do with some familiar with the terrain since there are a lot of hazards which you need to know to avoid. A stop at a bedouin home and for lunch at a local house out in the desert were both really authentic touches. A great tour for a couple or a group, Said was a really good guide and just a nice guy. I would recommend.
Excellent day tour

The tour was excellent. Magid was super nice and professional. He showed us many different sites and shared interesting stories and histories of Oman.
Special day

Quite unlike anything I’ve experienced before. The heat of the sands and the refreshing waters of the Wadi provided a fulfilling and contrasting experience. Hussein was a good guide
une superbe experience
