Holiday of a lifetime in Oman!

We have just returned from the most wonderful holiday in Oman. TravelLocal's partner in Oman produced just what we asked for - desert, mountains and sea. All the places we stayed in were unusual and so interesting. We were impressed by the way in which they checked in with us on a couple of occasions to make sure we were OK especially when we were delayed by the snow in the UK! Everything was organised so efficiently from the car hire to the guide in Muscat. We would thoroughly recommend them to organise the best holiday you could wish for. We will return.

What was good about our local partner based in Oman?

They produced exactly what we requested and changed the itinerary when asked to do so.

What could our local partner based in Oman improve on?

Honestly can't think of anything. They were so easy to deal with.

What did you think about the guides or drivers on your trip?

Very patient guide in Muscat who overran his tour time as we were so interested in the mosque!

What advice would you give to other travellers planning a trip to Oman?

Enjoy contact with local Omanis who are gentle, kind and very courteous. We observed local dress customs and were made to feel welcome wherever we went. If you are in the villages in the mountains observe the signs to respect the privacy of villagers and don't trespass on individual properties. Apart from these basic observations, just engage with Omani people and your efforts will be repaid many times over.

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

At Desert Camp, we had a tour of the desert at sunset and were bowled over when we stopped on the top of a dune to be greeted by canapés and wine laid out on a table on a carpet with kelims to sit on. What a way for my husband to celebrate his 70th birthday! We will never forget our experience with the delightful Bedouin guide.
