Oman experience

Our Oman trip was fantastic. There was so much to see and experience in that wonderful country. The organisation of TravelLocal's partner in Oman was second to none. All transfers were on time and drivers very helpful and friendly. Special thanks to our driver and guide Ali, who was such a confident, thoughtful and skilled driver and instilled a lot of confidence when driving on steep and winding mountain rounds and sand dunes. The accommodation was excellent, and we were especially impressed by Anantara resort in the Hajar mountains. Out itinerary was full of lovely surprises and the landscape was fantastic not to mention the wildlife. Seeing the turtles at Ras Al Jinz and the majestic sky was one of the highlights. Muscat was very exciting and we very much enjoyed exploring the Mutrah souq, seeing the Grand Mosque and visiting the Royal Opera House. The Omani people were so hospitable and we felt genuinely welcome wherever we went. Thanks to Joby & co and we hope to come back soon.
