thank you for taking me to the al safa house for a show of the Omani house and the walk at sunset along water ways was appreciated, sleeping on the mattress on the floor in the room without furniture was OK

Sondra EttlingerUnited States
Valentina was everything we wanted in a guide, both during the process of fine tuning our itinerary, and then executing it. We communicated our wants and needs to her in the booking process and she more than met them during our tour. We particularly enjoyed the cultural visits.

We had an action packed time. Valentina was professional, energetic, reliable and efficient. She clearly knew the country and its attractions very well. She was well-prepared, and accommodating of our group requirements. My family and I would highly recommend her services to my friends and associates.

What a day! Fantastic. The highlight being asked by a Omani guide that valentina uses to take coffee with him in his house. I hasten to add this was not on the agenda but really made our day . We not only saw a part of real Omani life but could ask questions that you just don't get in the guide books. Thankyou valentina for a wonderful day, and then going out of her way to show us the grand mosque. Can not rate highly enough. Vanessa and Andrew Glover
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Vanessa and Andrew, I am happy to know that you enjoyed this wonderful trip and learn more about real life of very simple and hospitable Omani people. Best of luck to you and your husband!
Anne HayesUnited Kingdom
Very pleasant day out with Valentina which we enjoyed very much
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anne and David, It was my real pleasure to spend a day with both of you too. I hope you liked Oman very much and will visit this beautiful country again some day.
Valentina took us to Nizwa, the old capital of Oman, site of a splendid fort, and a good souk, especially for silver. Some of the scenery on the way is stunning. Having spent too long in the souk our tour was amended to fit in with a tight timeline imposed by the ship's departure time. Valentina has so much energy, squeezing sites and experiences out of every available minute. Strongly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Sale, I am happy to learn that you enjoyed the trip and great shopping at the famous silver souq. We could visit some more exiting sites if not limited by the ship's schedule. Let's hope for the next time. Please send my very best regards to you lovely wife and Irish friends.
