We had a magnificent trip. The program had a good variety of locations such as Jabal Samhan(nature) Sumhuram archeological site (history) and the Gravity Location (fun). Our tour guide (Mohammed A) was really very nice and dedicated. He conveyed the enthusiasm for the omanic culture. All in all: we had a great day!

Most beautyful stops to look over the amazing countryside in the moutains and at the beaches. The driver told us much about the people and their life and habits.
A great day trip East of Salalah!

Great tour by Mr. Abdulaziz. He arrived on time, provided refreshments during our journey, shared his knowledge on the history of the locations and of Oman and it’s people. We completed our itinerary on time. He was respectful, caring, friendly, and courteous. It was an adventurous and relaxing tour.

We had the best time. Mohamed was an excellent guide. I would recommend and I'd book again during/ after the rainy season to see the greenery and stronger waterfalls.

Thank you for liking the tour and for taking out time in writing this review. Looking forward to welcoming you again in Salalah Oman.
Beautiful Day in Salalah and Dhofar
Michael_S, Dec 2019
I only had 2 days in Salalah and wanted to make the most out of it. The day tour with Beautiful Salalah was perfect for this and definitely worth it. Hamed, the tour guide, showed me so many beautiful places and told me so many interesting things about the country and its culture and history. I especially liked that Hamed was always willing to go above and beyond to accommodate my individual wishes, making this trip one of the highlights on my 2 months visit in the Middle East. I can totally recommend this tour to anyone who is in the south of Oman.
Great!
Benedetta_D, Oct 2023
Great tour and great guide! See you again!! Il tour è stato completo di tutti i punti caratteristici della zona orientale di Salalah: ottima soluzione per chi ha poco tempo e vuole vedere più cose possibile!
