I grew up near Salalah in a small village high in the Dhofar Mountains surrounded by so many historic ancient sites and such dramatic scenery. With my excellent English and in-depth local knowledge, I decided to train to become a guide.
After achieving my Tour Guide License of the Sultanate of Oman, issued by Ministry of Tourism, I have been leading small group tours for over 7 years.
My passion is sharing my fantastic province with tourists and visitors who travel to my beautiful country. I believe that I have the ability to provide all information which my guests may require, from the UNESCO world heritage sites, the best mountain lookouts, hidden beaches and unique local flora and birdlife. I am an active guide and pride myself on my ability to add personal touches to every tour I conduct. It's very much an interactive experience, as it's rare that I conduct a tour without learning some new aspect or knowledge that I can share in the future. I attempt to structure my full day tours to ensure we are in the best spots with the best light for my guests who enjoy photography. It is extremely important to me that my guests return home with experiences to remember, and my feedback is invariably positive.
I have a late-model Toyota Landcruiser ideal for conveying small groups of up to 4 in comfort and safety. My guests often remark favorably on my sensible driving, a result of practicing defensive driving at all times.
Perhaps the most diverse nation in the Middle East, Oman provides a rich mix of nature, history and culture. In addition to its growing reputation as a premium beach resort destination, Oman is also a great option for activity and adventure with its idyllic beaches, lush Wadis and wide desert sands offering an outstanding range of activities and sights. It is said that the friendliness and hospitality of my home country has impacted the trips of many tourists and has made their visits unforgettable.
I'm glad you read my Bio. I hope to share with you soon the history, customs and traditions of Omani society in Dhofar when you tour with me. It would be my great pleasure to show you my lovely part of the world.
My best regards
