Valentina is extremely dynamic, tireless and knowledgeable. In two days of tours through Northern Oman, she drove us to beautiful faraway places, was very informative, flexible and patient with our group, and made our visit unforgettable. When we have an opportunity to visit Southern Oman, we'll definitely need her services again.
