"Many Thanks To You And Holiday Architects."

Dear Harry
We hugely enjoyed our Oman trip. Elite did a very good job with all the local arrangements and their sub-agents in Musandam. Everyone was efficient and helpful. All the flights were fine. Car was excellent - we really enjoyed the flexibility of driving ourselves around (about 900 miles) without a guide and always felt safe - wonderful roads.
Very friendly people - no hassle. Interesting things to see. Overall a very good trip.  Never too hot - even in the desert.
Many thanks to you and Holiday Architects.

"We Have Now Returned From A Very Good Holiday"

We have now returned from a very good holiday and so thought I would just let you know that nearly everything went well. The hotels were good and we really liked the Sohar Beach Hotel where we got a pool side room that had just been refurbished. We thought the restaurant was very good value and even the drinks were relatively cheap.
Our tour guide in Muscat was excellent. Good English and knew her details. We asked to have the Opera House included and she certainly complied.  
Thank for arranging it all. 

"The Holiday Gave Us The Flexibility We Wanted."

So what were the overall impressions of the holiday?


Firstly it was the trouble taken by Holiday Architects (Oman specialists) with an itinerary to suit our requests as well as their suggestions. This was complemented by their Oman agents, Elite Travel. The other major factor was our driver/guide Saqr. What a star! Over the 10 days we were with him he became a friend. His English was nearly perfect, his driving skilful and safe and his knowledge of the places we visited extensive. He was ever willing to take us ‘off-piste’ to see places of particular interest to us from the time we had lived in Oman, and also to places he knew which he realised would appeal to us.


We knew that some of the development since then would be rather unattractive and that there would be some ‘urban sprawls’. However we had correctly judged that this would be outweighed by modernisation and restoration done in a sympathetic manner. We also knew for certain that the local people would be extremely welcoming. In our case they were fascinated by seeing some of our photos from 1972.


We stayed everywhere at comfortable hotels or ‘camps’, but we had ruled out five star luxury from the start. Tourism is increasing year by year and new hotels are springing up.


The final point was the advantage of a ‘tailor-made’ holiday with 4WD vehicle and driver which gave us the flexibility we wanted, and allowed us to see places without being rushed.   


"I Think We Are More In Love With Oman Than Ever"

Good afternoon Harry!


Obviously back home after a truly fabulous holiday! The Juweira was delightful and our Hashmann experience was brilliant! Our guide Mohamed knew every grain of sand and had a great sense of humour as did the chef who made us a great meal, chargrilled chicken, salad, camel stew and rice and bread. Mohamed brought some camel milk given to him from the camel herder we met along the way, lovely! Couldn't do any stargazing as we had a sand storm and had to eat inside....... that sand gets everywhere!!


The Husn was nice and Ras Al Jinz was excellent! We have to say the Bustan was the icing on the cake! Three days wasn't enough, so relaxing with a wonderful view of the beautiful gardens and the sea. Fabulous food, the head chef is Srilankan, his home is in Dublin and he loves rugby!!


Thank you for putting this together for us, I think we are more in love with Oman than ever!


We'll be back as soon as we can!


Kind regards
