Date: Aug 12/18

Yasser was the perfect guide for us. He made a bespoke tour for us as my wife is pregnant and we didn't want to do anything too strenuous in the heat. Yasser was very knowledgeable and gave us alot of information on the history of Oman and the local area. I told Yasser that I am a chef and wanted to experience some local food and he took us to a lovely local restaurant for lunch. I would recommend Yasser to anyone that wants a tour of Nizwa or Muscat. Thank you Yasser for a wonderful day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mr.ben Greetings Thank you for your compliments i appreciate. Regards Yasser

Yasser was a fantastic guide and we have no hesitation in recommending him. Professional, humorous, efficient and very informative, Yasser gave us a fabulous insight into Oman and its peoples, history and culture. He is clearly very well-respected by fellow guides. We had a great 5 day tour with him around Oman plus a half-day tour of Muscat. Thank you Yasser!

It was an extremely enjoyable experience. The service was outstanding. Yasser is highly qualified, reliable and friendly. We are grateful to him for all the good records he offered us. It is a very good idea to favour contact with real Omani people. We recommend the agency and Yasser to any body else and we hope to come back.

Date: Nov 19/17

We enjoyed spending the day with Yasser, and learned a lot about Oman. He was on time in a clean Toyota 4X4. We visited portions of three UNESCO World Heritage sites. Yasser is a safe and competent driver. He was flexible and suggested good photographic viewpoints. We drove a long way and returned late, but Yasser was happy to do so. We strongly recommend Oman and Yasser.

Tour: #262431, Wadi al Abreyeen private tour, Muscat, Oman    view tour
Date: Nov 11/17

Yasser took me on a very adventurous drive through the mountains with a 4 wheel drive car. It was very exciting and something I would not have been able to do any other way. He drove nearly 250km for the day, mostly motorway but some through the mountains on dirt and stony roads even through streams and also to other sites such as the new fish market. He explained much to me about Omani life. I learned a lot about the unique terrain from the wadis we drove through. I had a very worthwhile experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ruth Greetings from Oman I hope all is well on your side, and hope you reached safely. Thank you so much for the compliments. I appreciate so much God bless you Thank you & Regards Yasser Al Maamari

Date: May 4/17

Yasser arrived promptly to pick us up, but he was not in the van we had arranged and paid extra for. This affected our tour. Yasser was amazing as our guide at the Grand Mosque staying with us always and making certain all of our inquiries were answered. We learned a great deal from our visit. Unfortunately, we were not escorted in the market nor at an alternative museum. We normally are always escorted with Tours by Locals Yasser was professional and knowledgeable. We learned a great deal from him.

Superb job both days of the tours. He explained each area we were traveling to. In addition he told us how to negotiate at the Sook. We asked for a special lunch our second day. He took us to a non tourist local restaurant where the food was fabulous. He paid up front to keep our cost down. I book private tours all over the world and he was one of our top guides

Tour: #261628, Private Nizwa & Jebel Akhdar Tour, Muscat, Oman    view tour
Date: Feb 3/17

We had a group of five - with a five year old, from the onset Yasser was perfect for our group. He picked us up where we were staying, we were all wanting some Karak Tea to start our journey - he picked a perfect spot on the way. The ride to Nizwa was like a history lesson - we learned a ton about Omani culture. We had some private time to explore the souq (market) at Nizwa - later we were off to the mountains. Great driver, great guide - at they end of the day was like saying goodbye to a friend!

We had a Muscat by Night tour with Yasser and were very pleased with his pleasant manners and friendliness. He really knows how to help travelers understand the new country better. We highly recommend him. ToursByLocals is definitely the way to go when visiting the Middle East countries.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. I was happy to show you my home town and hope to see you again!

Date: Dec 8/16

We liked Yasser who was very helpful and easy to get along with on our 3-day trip - no issues whatsoever. At end, however, we suggested ToursByLocals should check pricing as the trip was quite a bit higher than several other comparable tours. No complaints though - a good trip to see more of wonderful Oman !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bruce for your nice feedback. I am glad you had a great time, best wishes

We had a very nice afternoon tour with Yasser, and appreciated his knowledge of present day Muscat and the history of Oman as well. He is a kind and attentive guide and looked after us quite well. I would happily book another tour with him.
