A pleasant and knowledgeable guide Musab collected us on time from the hotel and we made our way through the mountains to Nizwa. A fascinating tour of the fort and old souq with a chance to sample delicious Omani desserts and dates. On up the green mountain - Jebel Akhder a steep climb in the 4x4 but amazing views and cool climate up there at 2000 m. All in all a very enjoyable trip I thoroughly recommend the company.

We planned a four-day tour through Sunshine Tours for a family of six including three young kids. Maymona in the Sunshine Tours office was highly responsive and adapted the itinerary to our needs. Our tour guide, Nasser, was warm and hospitable. He went out of his way to be flexible and customize itineraries on a daily basis to adapt to our at times unwieldy kids on long drives. He even spent his own personal time after the tour to make sure we had a good meal with him at a favorite restaurant and see the traditional market. Having priced out some other options with other tour agencies, I can say that Sunshine was the most responsive, reasonably priced, and flexible. They also accepted responsibility for a hotel booking mix up and made sure that we were treated fairly and valued as customers. Highly professional team all around. My kids still talk about "Mr. Nasser" and want to go back to Oman.

Better can't be!

We had booked a private tour with a guide from Muskat to the desert. We wanted to have the chance to ride the Jeep ourselves in the desert, ride a Quad and Camel, maybe do some sandboarding and get a chance to find out about the local food culture.

We had a great guide, Abdulrahman, wo spoke great english, knew some german, too and guided us through our 8h journey which never during the trip actually felt that long.

Our guide was very spontaneous with our wishes and didn't make us feel like we had to do a pre-planned tour with him where we have no chance to change the plan.

Every wish was fulfilled and he even went beyond our wishes by showing us great views into his country and the food habits.

During the day every food and activity was paid for us. Starting with tea and Omani Bread for breakfast, several bottles of water through the day, a coffee break with best tasting self made dates for snack and ending with an amazing lunch meal before we went back from the desert to Muskat. Quad, Camel riding, fuel and so on where within the price, too.
We where three people and paid all together 430,- USD. Amazing!

We came to Oman during a one day stop of our cruise and it worked out perfect!

Contact before via Whatsapp, pickup at the Main Gate of the Port on time and being back perfectly to go back on board with no stress before taking off again.

Thank you very much for this amazing experience sunshine tours and especially to Maymona and Abdulrahman, who really did a great job organizing and guiding us through the day!

Well done!
