We have used over 20 TBL guides and Yasser is right there at the top. His English is excellent, he has a good sense of humour and is clearly knowledgeable about his own country. Would totally recommend Yasser to anyone visiting Oman/Muscat

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 GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda Murphy

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!

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.
