    The tour is excellent! There were never ending refreshments, water, dates and omaní coffee. They used the traditional omaní boat that made the experience more interesting. We had the opportunity to admire Muscat and it's castle from the see along with a beautiful sunset. Everyone is kind and helpful

    Fun for little kids
    mdf572, Feb 2024
    Very nice office staff and communication. The boat ride is good for families with little kids I think. I was not fun for adult travelers and not a romantic or peaceful experience. It's for kids to run around and have fun...which is fine...just not what I was expecting.

    Everything was just perfect! From the greet at the office till the very last minute of the trip! Beautiful views and our captain was very informative (shame I can’t recall his name). Highly recommend! (Can get a bit chilly so don’t forget your jumper)

    My son (2.5 years old) and myself really enjoyed the sunset cruise. We were a bit disappointed in the beginning as we were offered a speed boat and not a dhow given the small number of participants, but the experience was great and we do not regret it. I particularly appreciated that the captain switched off the loud music and allowed us to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the sea. He also took us a bit further along the coast and allowed us to experience some of the lesser visited gulfs and sights. We were picked up at the hotel and were pleasantly surprised that the ride to the harbour and back was almost a private tour of old Muscat and the surroundings. All in all a very good experience which we would like to repeat when we are back in Muscat.
