Absolutely incredible experience and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Oman is such a magical place with warm and welcoming people. Nabeel went out of his way to share with us the rich culture of Oman and I can't imagine a better way to have experienced this beautiful country.

Nabeel is a really good guide. The choice of activities he proposes in his adventures allow guests to discover unique sites and attractions that are off the beaten track. He also gives to his guests the opportunity to meet local people and artisans as well as to taste generous portions of Omani food and sweets, including some homemade ones. Also, he lodges his guests in historical, but well maintained, buildings, thus giving the opportunity to discover and live a part of Oman culture and history. In the case of my adventure, Nabeel has shown great flexibility and creativity to reorganize the program to cope with exceptional rain and the closing of many sites due to the death of his majesty Sultan Qaboos. Finally, Nabeel appears to be one of the rare guides in Oman who caters for the guests traveling alone.

This is an extremely enjoyable trip that covers a great deal of ground, and includes some wonderful experiences. The Omani scenery is truly magical, and you get to stay in some great accommodation with real Omani character. The desert, the mountains, the incredibly friendly people, the camel riding, it was all great and unforgettable. The group was great, and Nabeel, Qusai and Muhanned were great fun.

Overall, it was an amazing adventure! We appreciated a lot the program, unique places of the wonderful country of Oman. great dynamics, as well: from most hard part in Snake Gorge (a lot of swimming in rather cold water) to more relaxing sightseeing and museum visits. Organizers did a great job - aeverything was 100% pre-planned, almost no waiting even given 8 people in the group. Now I'm a true fan of Oman and would advise to go on this adventure to all my friends!

We had a wonderful 5 day trip with Nabeel and enjoyed the Wadi’s,the dunes, the mountains, the ancient cities and most of all Nabeel’s attentiveness. His steady friendly manner allowed us to feel at home and he was a wealth of knowledge and truly wanted to share Oman and Omani culture w a friendly passion!
