Great Tour

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. So much better than being on the big cruise ship tour. We saw interesting and beautiful areas with great commentary. Our guide "Abi" was very informative, considerate and kind. He took great photo's of us too which is a plus. The fort is great and he went through all of it with us explaining everything. He also explained a lot about life in Oman. We enjoyed seeing the petroglyphs and the way of life of the people. It was an excellent way to take in the area!
