It Was One Of The Most Enjoyable Holidays We Have Had"

Dear Harry

This is a very belated email but I wanted to thank you for arranging such a splendid tour of Oman. It was one of the most enjoyable holidays we have had and the organisation was perfect. It is a fascinating country and the Omanis were so charming and welcoming.

Sultan in Muscat was by far the best guide. He spoke fluent English and made our tour very interesting and seeing that we were interested and obviously enjoying it he extended the tour for an extra 90 minutes!

Faisal on the 4 day tour was friendly, very helpful and considerate and we enjoyed being with him. He went out of his way to make each trip special. His English was not as fluent as Sultans but we probably got enough relevant info from him.He managed to persuade the police guarding the entrance to a stadium set up in the scrub land near Niswa to let us BOTH in to watch horse racing. It turned out to be a very special event related to the National celebrations for The Sultans reign of over 40 years with dignitaries from far and wide and of the 200+ present in all their Omani formal dress including the Minister for Sport from Muscat. We were the only tourists and I was the only woman! All other woman were corralled on the ground in the hot sun!! Very memorable!

Thank you again for all your kind attention in organising this holiday. We could not have wished for better service.

We send you our best wishes for the Festive Season and for 2015

Kind regards



"So Friendly and Helpful and Quick To Smile"

Good Morning Harry,

Just wanted to send a quick e-mail to thank you for a wonderful holiday in Oman. It is rare that everything goes well, or to plan, but this trip got very close! We have travelled enough to expect the unexpected and not to rely on everything to run smoothly. Even so, this was exceptionally well organised.

Naturally there were quite a few highlights.

  1. The Omani people (and the many India, Pakistani and Sri Lanka people as well). So friendly and helpful and quick to smile (even if some of our photos don’t reflect this). We were lucky enough to be around for the National Day celebrations and so had the benefit of street decorations everywhere as well.
  2. I’m so glad we made it to the livestock market at Nizwa on the Friday morning. It was fantastic!
  3. The drive to 1000 nights camp was great, as was the drive back. I was somewhat concerned about this beforehand but it proved to be far easier than expected and far more enjoyable.
  4. The roads were wonderful - as was most of the driving.
  5. We had a great day exploring the Saiq Plateau. Spectacular views there.
  6. The three nights we spent at the View were wonderful. It gave us plenty of time to explore the area e.g. Jebel Shams and the balcony walk, the forts at Jabreen and Bahla, Old Al Hamra, Misfat al Abryeen etc.
  7. Finally, the dhow cruise was a great way to end the trip – and the dolphins performed brilliantly!

I could go on of course!

We have already had a go at sorting through our many photos…

Best Regards … and thanks again!

Dave and Carol H

"We Are So Pleased We Chose To Visit Oman"

Dear Harry

Mahmoud was a most safe and professional driver. It was lovely that he presented us with two scarves when we arrived at our hotel. He was a perfect gentleman and after realizing that I had a balance problem was always there with a strong arm whenever the need arose. He became a friend and we were sorry to say goodbye.

Thank you for putting together such a perfect itinerary for us.

We are so pleased we chose to visit Oman and that we opted for Holiday Architects to plan it for us.
