Hiring a driver in Oman for eight days out of Muscat???

Hello,

Can anyone recommend a driver for an eight day stay in Oman based in Muscat? We will be doing day trips out of Muscat to places like Nizwa, Jebel Shams, Bahla Fort....etc. Any recommendations? I am not keen on renting a car as we were just in a horrible car accident on the highway in South Africa (not our fault) and driving again just does not seem appealing.

Thanks.

Hi,

yes, I have a good Driver and Guide for you. His Name is Nawaf al Wahaibi. E-Mail:

Nawaaaf919@hotmail.com. Phone/Whatsapp: 00968 96 66 09 58.

I was on Tour with him (10 Days) and I had a great time with him. Look, what I wrote about him on the post

"Private Tourguide for Oman":

As I said, I have done all this with a local tour guide, I've met him at a previous trip. At the time I crossed with a tour group the Rub el Khali with tents and 4x4 car, and got to know him as a really reliable and very good driver.

He is a friendly, open, dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced guide, and from the beginning I knew, that I am in good Hands.He was concentrated, when it need to be necessary (difficult road conditions, desert etc.) and he was funny and amusing if it was the right time.

So, if someone is looking for a tour guide for Oman, I highly recommend him! His Name is Nawaf al Wahaibi, E-Mail: Nawaaaf919@hotmail.com, Phone-Number (Whatsapp) 00968 96 66 09 58. Just tell him, that you have the contact from this Internetpage and if you want, you can send him best wishes from Monika from Germany.

Hi there - I've had a quote from a recommended driver of OMR 125 per day for a private guide for 3 days. This is over our budget and I wondered if it's worth hunting around for someone cheaper but still reliable, fun and informative? If anyone has Any suggestions I'd be grateful to hear . Many thanks Sarah

While engaging private vehicles or drivers, make sure they comply with standard requirements such as insurance, valid driver's documents, etc - in your own interest and to protect you and co-passengers if any.
