Jump into a luxury 4-wheel-drive SUV and enjoy a thrilling ride over the sandy dunes of south Qatar. Drive through the high sand dunes of the desert just outside the city of Doha at the Inland Sea. An authentic experience of a rollercoaster ride on southern Qatari desert. We touch sandy beach desert around 45 kilometers south of Doha. Around 40 kilometers of trekking by 4X4 car in to the inland sea is very exciting drive. This tour is specially designed to acquaint visitors with the desert by taking them up and down over the sand dunes.

Certificate of Excellence
Friendly driver, variety of places to see
Service started off great with confirmation the day beforehand. Our driver was knowledgeable and friendly. Our visit was during a public holiday and not many of the normal places were open but our driver took us to different things to see, like look outs and government buildings which were all beautiful and interesting.

BEST EXPERIENCE EVER! ♥️
It was my first visit to Muscat and while scrolling through google I came across Oman Day Tours and got to contact Nehal. She was amazing and booked me and my friend a private tour to Muscat on a very reasonable price.
On the day of tour, our wonderful guide, Mr. Moosa picked us up from the hotel and he took us to all the beautiful historic places. He told us all about the history, traditions, culture, food, people and all the amazing things and hospitality Oman offers.
If I visit Muscat again I’ll always contact Oman Day Tours. I highly recommend this to everyone who reads my review.
Thanks guys for making our trip great!
Amazing desert and oasis experience
The tour was good but slightly on the expensive side. Naser was a professional driver and a good guide. Loved both the wadi and the sand dunes. Very confortable car ride.
One thing for improvement would be the dune bashing. I had a better experience in Abu Dhabi.
Real Adventure! Jasmin 3 day tour
Wow! What an amazing experience we had in Oman, which I can contribute directly to Oman Day Tours and, our guide, Nasa.
In the three day tour we were able to get an awesome snapshot of Oman and really become aware of what a beautiful, amazing place it is to explore.
Nasa, our guide, was exceptional.
Showing us amazing sights and hidden gems, swimming in wadis, the amazing desert camp, shooting stars at turtle beach, Teaching us many things about the history of Oman, the cultural differences to other Arabian countries, and also about Islam in Oman.
We toured through Europe afterwards and Oman was surely the highlight.
My Instagram is we_explore where I took photos and an edited video clip of our tour 👍🏼
I would like to say thank you for the service you provided. It was a great tour experience and we are looking forward for more travel bookings with you. Our tour guide is very professional and knowledgeable. He really did an excellent job!
It was a fantastic adventure and the guide Faisal was very helpful and entertaining. He took good care about us.Everything was organized perfectly.
We highly recommend this agency.
We switched tours at the last minute
We booked a snorkeling trip for our cruise port stop, but had second thoughts because we expected the water and weather to be cool. They let us switch to a city tour which was excellent, as was our tour guide. I deducted a star because they don't provide thin wetsuits for snorkeling or warn us about the temperatures for that time of year (maybe they thought we were hardier than that).
I do appreciate that they let us take a city tour instead which was very nice. By this point on our cruise we had also visited quite a few arab markets so we appreciated the guide's flexibility in changing up the itinerary at the end and we went to an authentic local place to eat and chat more about the local culture and customs.
Overall we enjoyed our tour and tour guide and would use them again.

Learning about frankincense was interesting
Our half day tour with your company was very nice. We saw all of the places that were listed in the itinerary. We were able to go to the market and buy some souvenirs. Our driver/guide took us to see how frankincense is heated and were able to buy a small amount to take home.
Overall, a great tour!
Great tour, excellent tour guides!
45 minutes trekking through the Arabian desert heat, boulders, alongside canyons and pools of water is all worth it! Our guides, Said and Faisal(hope I spelled it correctly), are excellent and helped us a lot in making sure we experience the best out this tour. Highly recommended!
Coral Gables, Florida
gorgeous oman, beautiful gorge with swimming hole, and gorgeous sinkhole visit
we arrived by ship, and as promised on my previous confirmation emails driver was waiting for us right outside at designated spot.
our day was to go visit wadi shab, hike and swim, then make a quick stopover at the sinkhole.
everything was gorgeous and great.
it was a scorching hot day. this excursion is only and should only be booked if you are in good shape. there is a lot of hiking, and rocks are slippery. if you are not prepared to hike the heat, and walk at least 3 miles , do not book it .
views are spectacular. you will be rewarded for your had work.
if you are not in that good shape, I highly recommend going to sinkhole only.
there are even stairs to the swimming area and it still gorgeous and fun to do.
we ended up not swimming there and my friends that were with us, wished that we did not go to wadi shab and only went to swimming hole. it would have been a lot less of a work out.
Dolphins and Snorkeling
People went to see dolphins and got a show. The boat had water, soda, and things to eat. About snorkeling, the spot that I was taken wasn't necessarily the best. Yes, there are some schools of fish but that's it.
TONS of dolphins—very common to see them (more rare in winter, I was told). It was fantastic to see them right off the side of the boat. Tons of other boats there, but we were more secluded for the snorkeling. Lots of fish and a little over an hour to snorkel. Water, sodas, and a few snacks provided. Covered boat for some shade. Drove through some cool rock tunnels in the return trip!
Abu Dhabi private City Tour -we wouldn't recommend
We received an email saying we had to be waiting for our driver in the foyer of the hotel at 9am. We went down at 8:50 and the 1st thing he said to us is I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU FOR AN HR. We said no the email we received had said 9am.We never received any messages or anything to say our time had been changed.He wasn't happy, he didn't even ask us our names and he didn't say his name. I said if you don't want to take us you don't have to. We were disappointed from the start. The booking says above that you have flexibility to change and plan it your way - well we didn't. We were rushed through everything we stopped at and given 30min time slots. We were over it! He was on his phone all the way home organising a desert sands trip that was planned for once he dropped us of. I questioned him as he dropped us of in Dubai at 2:30 - what the rush was when it stated our booking was till 5pm. He replied that traffic was to be included in this. Wow all he was thinking and organising was his next trip. I wouldn't recommend this at all. Next time we will go with a coach and not waste our money. This trip cost us $505.99 AUS dollars. So so dissapointed VIATOR. Really research this before you think about doing it!
Great Wadi Shab tour
Thank you. It was a wonderful tour and our tour guide was very kind and explained so much information to us about the country, culture and Wadi Shab
You Really Get to See Things Most Tourists Never See
Definitely the tour for those who want to go beyond the surface. Our driver/guide was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The private car was comfortable and air conditioned. Absolutely appreciated when it was 104 F!
