Must visit attraction
Syed_W, Feb 2024
The entire tour is worth it. Guide/driver Abdul was great. He was very supportive and helped me swim to the waterfalls. Wadi Al Shab is a great attraction. Very scenic views. Bimmah Sinkhole should be visited when the sun is high up in the sky to witness the clear water. Things I did not like: -The bus wasn't very comfortable and felt cramped. They should use better transportation option for the price that is charged. -Drop points were as per the order of the pick-up which was very strange which led to increase of almost 30-60mins for most of us.

Amazing
Rheem_D, Feb 2024
What an experience! Our wonderful guide Abdullah picked us up in a mini bus, and drove for a couple hours to Wadi Shab. We started with a quick boat ride, then a hike and a swim to reach a cave and waterfall. It was perfect. My one regret was not having a waterproof pouch for my phone to take pictures. Afterwards, we had lunch then drove to the Bimmah sinkhole, another beautiful work of natural art. I can’t recommend this adventure enough!

Amazing experience
NekmanVerma, Jan 2024
The trip was awesome. Our host was Abdul and he did a fantastic job. Abdul and Rashid helped me a lot during the Wadi Shab trek and swim. After Wadi Shab, the lunch was also great. I highly recommend this tour. Cheers !!

Be prepared.
Melissa_S, Jan 2024
This was listed as moderate physical ability needed and i would say that is the minimum. It was incredible and Abdullah our guide was awesome. But it was a difficult hike and parts of the water was tough - specifically pulling yourself up an algae covered rock to the second pool. The day after, I had bruises and was quite stiff due to the strain. BUT the scenery is stunning. Lunch was delicious. I don’t think the tour group needs to include the sinkhole. It would be better to spend a bit more time at the wadi. Water shoes are a must. I had sneakers for the hike in and they were so slippery I had to change into my water shoes after soaking the sneakers accidentally in a stream.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Thank you for sharing your experience, and we're glad to hear that you found the hike incredible with Abdullah as your guide. We appreciate your feedback on the level of difficulty, and we're sorry to hear about the challenges you faced during certain parts of the trip.

We hope you recover quickly from any discomfort, and we appreciate your positive comments about the stunning scenery and delicious lunch. We look forward to the opportunity to host you on another adventure in the future.

Wadi Shab cannot be missed!
Darcy_W, Jan 2024
Abdullah was a lovely guide, punctual, informed us when needed, patient with all the variety of skills, paces, and languages. and he was always open to answering questions. The lunch was standard local Omani, the table was pre booked and we sat, ate, finished in about 20 minutes. Wadi Shab is a Do Not Miss!!! One of the top experiences many of us had on our travels. Bimmah is less interesting and could be traded for a different experience if this were possible. Thank you team, and Thank you again Abdullah!
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Thank you for your detailed and wonderful review! Abdullah is indeed a gem in our team, and we're thrilled to hear about your positive experience with him. Your kind words about his punctuality, knowledge, and patience mean a lot to us. It's fantastic to know that Wadi Shab left such a lasting impression! We appreciate your feedback about Bimmah as well, and we'll take this into consideration for future tour enhancements. We're grateful for your support and look forward to crafting more unforgettable experiences for you in the future!
A wonderful day tour to see the tourism spot
HOIKEI_W, Dec 2023
Good choice for one day tour to highlight the spot in Oman including Wadi Shab (swimming in a valley) and Bimmah Sinkhole (near the seafront by land).
Response from Host, Jan 2024

Great tour
Namrata_G, Dec 2023
This is a well organised tour of wadi shab and bimmah sinkhole. The guide Abdul covered every aspect of wadi shab really well and was extremely attentive and helpful. Highly recommend to anyone looking to explore both these places, which are a must see in Oman.

Great tour with some minor improvement remarks
KatharinaChristine_K, Dec 2023
Abdullah was an amazing guide! He had everything organised and was well prepared. However, our group delayed things and therefore the tour was longer than planned but Abdullah never complained about him having to work longer. I was just unhappy about him not saying anything about some people shoes as they were definitely not hiking material and I think he could wait and look more for the group when walking through the Wadi. Otherwise, it was really great and an amazing experience of which Abdullah's professionalism and preparedness was a big part of it!
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We're thrilled to hear that Abdullah's professionalism and preparedness significantly contributed to your amazing experience. We appreciate your feedback regarding the tour's extended duration and the footwear concerns within the group.

We're grateful for your kind words and constructive feedback. We hope to host you again for an even more seamless and enjoyable adventure next time!
Nice tour
Milana_A, Dec 2023
Our Tourguide was Abdurahman, he was very helpful and patient. He informed us very well about the Wadi shab and Sinkhole, even about other traditions in Oman. On the way he even stopped so we could see camels and take some pictures. He also can take jokes and is a funny person. The tour itself is something for sporty people. Even though the hike is at a very fast speed we still had some time to take pictures. The cave was quite crowded but okay.
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Thank you for sharing your experience! It sounds like Abdurahman, your tour guide, provided an informative and enjoyable trip. His knowledge about Wadi Shab, Sinkhole, and Omani traditions, as well as his willingness to stop for camel sightings, added value to the tour. Your insights about the physicality of the tour and the pace of the hike being suitable for sporty individuals are helpful for future travelers. Additionally, your mention of the crowded cave offers realistic expectations for those planning to visit. Overall, it sounds like despite some crowds, Abdurahman's guidance and the tour's content made it a memorable experience.
Wow great adventure
Mohamed_M, Dec 2023
Wonderful tour. I was piked up by 7.15 am there were 7 of us different nationalities.Our guide Abdullah was great he was with us till the end advising us and even took pictures for us because we didn’t take our phones because we didn’t have waterproof kit for our phones. It was about 30 to 45 minutes hike then we left our thing by the rocks and got in to swimwear then got into the water another 15 20 minutes swim to the cave. Abdullah gave me life jacket so I manage to swim slowly because I’m not a good swimmer.It was breathtaking place .worth the hike & swim. After that we went for lunch. Good meal. Unfortunately Bimmah sinkhole was closed this was informed to us before coming so we were taken to a beach,spent half an hour there & it was 5.30 pm when I was doped.Thanks for memorable tour Abdulla and team.
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Thank you for sharing your experience! It sounds like you had a wonderful tour with Abdullah as your guide. His guidance and assistance, especially with providing a life jacket for swimming, made the experience enjoyable despite concerns about swimming ability. The journey to the cave and the breathtaking sights made the hike and swim worthwhile. It's great to hear that even with the unexpected closure of Bimmah sinkhole, alternative arrangements were made, and you got to spend some time at the beach. Your positive feedback about the lunch and the overall tour, culminating in a memorable experience, reflects the quality of the tour and the efforts of Abdullah and the team. Thank you for sharing your adventure!
Oman's Best
Monica_C, Dec 2023
We were fortunate to be part of an excellent group of solo travelers, led by the very thoughtful tour guide, Mazin. Wadi Shab and Bimmah Sinkhole are absolute must-visit destinations for anyone coming to Oman, and experiencing them on my first day set the bar high for the rest of the trip. I had a wonderful time! The hike to the wadi takes about an hour, but the views are incredibly picturesque. The experience of swimming in the wadi and the cave is amazing—nothing like it!
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Thank you for sharing your experience! It sounds like Mazin, your tour guide, made the journey exceptional. Wadi Shab and Bimmah Sinkhole indeed stand out as must-visit spots in Oman. It's fantastic that this experience set such a high bar for the rest of your trip. The picturesque views and the unique experience of swimming in the wadi and cave truly make it an unforgettable adventure!

Brilliant tour that is value for money
KierenJohn_O, Oct 2023
This was a brilliant group tour, probably one of the best I have done. The Wadi Shab is simply stunning and it was worth the (moderately challenging) walk there - I would say the heat was the most challenging part! Mahmood was an excellent tour guide. He was attentive throughout the tour activities and was always keeping us refreshed with cold drinks and snacks. His command of the English language is excellent and I would also add that he has a great sense of humour! I would also like to thank our brilliant tour group which added to the great experience we had (29 Oct). It was great meeting people of differing nationalities that had interesting backgrounds and travel stories.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for sharing your positive feedback about the Wadi Shab tour. We're delighted to hear you had a memorable experience with Mahmood and the group. Your kind words motivate us to continue offering top-notch tours. Looking forward to serving you again on your next adventure!
