1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Exploring far into the Muscat souk, getting past the trashy trinket area.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Hope for a guide that speaks your language well, or be fluent in Arabic yourself. The depth of culture calls for a better understanding of where you are and what you're experiencing.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

no

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Deeply fascinating to this WASP westerner. I was REALLY impressed by the people and achievements of Oman guide by the wisdom of its sultan and government. I didn't see a scrap of litter anywhere

Hi Peter and thanks for your feedback. As you only traveled with us for 4 nights, it was a shame you didn't get to experience any of the ongoing conservation projects or local projects enjoyed with longer itineraries. I hope you got a glimpse into the fascinating Sultanate of Oman, with their careful balance of modern progress whilst honouring local customs and traditions. We also trust the short time you spent with the Omani guide gave you some insight into the nation. We'd love to assist you with a more in-depth trip to the region!
