We had a wonderful day with Valentina. She met us from the ship on time and took us straight to the Grand Mosque ahead of the crowds. Valentina was most informative and knowledgeable and also very friendly and considerate. She was flexible in her approach and made sure that we saw everything we wanted to see and made our day memorable. It was a very hot day but she kept us supplied with wet wipes and chilled water! We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a private tour of Muscat.
Very Nice tour with Valentina. She allowed us to customize where we went and made some great suggestions for instance to see the Opera House in Oman - very beautiful. We enjoyed our tour very much.
Excellent tour with Valentina, she provided very good information on the history as well as the current happenings in Oman. Tour of the Mosque was very good,we never felt rushed. Day was well planned out and we really enjoyed our day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Raylene! It was my pleasure to be your private tour guide here in Muscat. I hope you have another chance to visit this beautiful country. Keep in touch!

We loved our tour of Muscat, Oman. Valentina was thorough and meticulous, warm and personable. Muscat [and Oman] caught us by surprise because we had not expected such a modern infrastructure. Valentina gave us some historical background on the Sheikh which helped us understand what he had done for his country. This was a thoroughly enjoyable and educational excursion.

One of the best guides we have had! She really cares about her clients! We saw some incredible things in Muscat and learned so much about this Arab country.
Wonderful tour with an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Would highly recommend this tour and definitely Valentina. Thank you for a lovely day.
Valentina is an excellent guide, we german speaking people could understand her english without any problem. She explained Muscat and also the difference between Oman and Dubai very good, because she lived for long time in Dubai. Thank you Valentina for this interesting day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Mr. Hofinger! It was a great pleasure to be on Muscat tour with you!

A visit to Oman (Muscat) cannot be completed without a visit to the Grand Mosque and the Opear House, both breath-taking architectures and Valentina's knowledge of both sites have enhanced the experience even greater. The tour is well planned and timed, allowing us to take in the major sites of Muscat in a very limited time, a perfect layover tour for anyone visitng the country and Valentina is great at guiding it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Tina! I hope you will have another chance to visit this beautiful country and explore more amazing sites here. My warm regards to all members of you family!

Valentina was top notch! We learned so much from her and she did a fantastic job of parking and dropping off where my husband could see the sites with his mobility scooter. She knew the sites well and knew where the entrances were that didn't have stairs, or where the elevators were. We recommend her highly and are very thankful to her for a wonderful tour in and around Muscat!
Valentina is a great guide and excellent company. We really enjoyed our tour with her and thoroughly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Jane! Hope to see you in Oman soon!
