Better can't be!

We had booked a private tour with a guide from Muskat to the desert. We wanted to have the chance to ride the Jeep ourselves in the desert, ride a Quad and Camel, maybe do some sandboarding and get a chance to find out about the local food culture.

We had a great guide, Abdulrahman, wo spoke great english, knew some german, too and guided us through our 8h journey which never during the trip actually felt that long.

Our guide was very spontaneous with our wishes and didn't make us feel like we had to do a pre-planned tour with him where we have no chance to change the plan.

Every wish was fulfilled and he even went beyond our wishes by showing us great views into his country and the food habits.

During the day every food and activity was paid for us. Starting with tea and Omani Bread for breakfast, several bottles of water through the day, a coffee break with best tasting self made dates for snack and ending with an amazing lunch meal before we went back from the desert to Muskat. Quad, Camel riding, fuel and so on where within the price, too.
We where three people and paid all together 430,- USD. Amazing!

We came to Oman during a one day stop of our cruise and it worked out perfect!

Contact before via Whatsapp, pickup at the Main Gate of the Port on time and being back perfectly to go back on board with no stress before taking off again.

Thank you very much for this amazing experience sunshine tours and especially to Maymona and Abdulrahman, who really did a great job organizing and guiding us through the day!

Well done!

We went today with Sunshine Tours’ owner Mohammed to Wahiba Sands. We had a wonderful day with Mohammed, who is a cool guy and a perfect tour guide. Mohammed asked us for our preferences and satisfied them all. He showed us the desert and a lot of camels. On the drive from Muscat to Wahiba Sands Mohammed told us a lot about live and people of Oman. We can highly recommend Sunshine Tours. Also we have to point out the good communication with Mohammed and his crew prior to booking and the trip.

Correspondence prior to arrival in Muscat was efficient.

There were 2 groups from the ship signed up for the same half day itinerary. Included in the cost of the tour was entrance fees.
We were met outside the port gates by two minivans. The other group departed first, and we did not see them for the rest of the day. Time was round about 12.30 pm

Our vehicle had just the driver, and we picked up the guide Hamoud, a short distance down the road.

We proceeded in silence to the first stop, which was the grand mosque, which was closed as it was after visiting hours. After a short walk in the grounds and photos, we were driven to the Royal Opera House again for photos only.
Then it was to a local cafe for honey crepe and traditional sweet tea. The tastings were good.

The guide also handed out bottles of water, which was much needed by now.

Next stop was the Muttrah souk, where Hamoud suggested a shopping stop of one hour and fifteen minutes. In hindsight, this was too much time as a number of stalls were closed for rest, and the guide should have known this.

At approximately 3.30pm, the tour continued over the mountain pass for scenic viewing and photos and the same thereafter to the Palace, and other vantage points, one of which was at the resort Barr Il Jissah.

The guide’s interaction consisted of a brief summary and answering our questions when we got out of the minivan at each stop. There was no other commentary or sharing of local knowledge while we were on the move, such as pointing out relevant points of interest.

We returned to the port at 5.30pm, the first group returned at 6pm.

There were two significant features that were missing from our tour when compared to the first group.
They actually visited the Opera House, while we got a photo stop, and they visited a home ( I was told it was the owner’s home) for tea and fruit/sweets.
Also, its not a major but they spent 30minutes at the souk. And why we had paid entrance fees in the cost of the tour was strange because we had not entered any site asking for a fee.

Overall, we saw a city and the guide was just doing a job, the itineraries of the two groups was obviously not the same and that was disappointing as I had specifically asked for an identical tour for the same cost.

All in all, an average experience.

Would suggest as an alternative economical way to see the sights in Muscat, look into hiring and sharing a taxi, of which there were many at the port gates.
