        This tour is a good way to see Oman beyond Muscat. Lots of time in cars, but some of this, such as driving through the desert and the canyon are part of the experience - it isn't just let's drive from A to B. There was downtime/own exploring time... Show more

        A brilliant trip which gave a good overview of Oman. There was a lot of driving but it enabled us to see a lot. The camping locations were amazing - yes, there were no facilities but we woke up on the beach, on the dunes and in the desert, so all well... Show more

        The trip was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable. The provision of free bottled water throughout the trip was great and saved us having to purchase along the way. Packed lunches for the camping weren’t great. Suggest having less, better quality food... Show more

        You might want to review the beach on the second night camping. It was a lovely beach but sadly it was absolutely covered in rubbish which was such a shame. There was even rubbish in the sea which really puts you off swimming.

        Lunch boxes every day would have been better than the restaurants that weren't equipped to cope with us all. Slow service and OK food. Lunch boxes in some of the sights would have been much more enjoyable

        B'fast and dinners in the desert were excellent. In sharp contrast, the lunch boxes were not that great. Too much food altogether, too many carbs. More fruit would have been welcome.

        1 or 2 members were a little surprised by the basic nature of the 3 nights camping but they clearly had not read the trip notes. For me it was a highlight of the trip.
