A Recent Review of this tour

We made 7 days cruise from/to Dubai. One of the port of calls was Muscat, where we booked private tour with Naheed. And it was the highlight of the journey. He was not only professionell (fast confirmation of booked tour, on time in port, clean car etc.) but even more friendly and did care very much to show us most of what was possible in that short time. He made us feel welcome in that beautiful city, that he is proud of. We appreciated time with him, we learned a lot and can only recommend him a guide.
