Valentina was a wonderful guide with a perfect knowledge about Oman. It was a nice mixture of information and entertainment. I learned a lot about local culture and "normal life". Organisation was perfect: punctual, good car, good choice of locations, sufficient time at any place Clearly recommended - thanks for a lovely day

Day 2 with Valentina and it could not have been a better experience ! 6 star service, personality and knowledge ....I highly recommend Valentina and have already given her name to use next year for a friend coming to Oman. This was my first time using Tours by Locals and I am sold on the profssionalsm and a guidance of an unknow city that excelled my expectation .

Valentina was really nice, very helpful & knowledgeable. A great tour, everything on time & well planned out. Thank you so much - would highly recommend and use again!
Had a great day with Valentina. In front of our tour, we had some questions about the tour and clothing. She responded our mails quickly, and we had a great dialog. She is extremely knowable, and we were able to ask about anything. Also she is a very good driver (it's a BIG plus in Oman) and have a great sense of humor. Loved spending the day with her. Highly recommended guide and we loved this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Cathrine! I really happy to know that you had a great time. Hope you will return to Oman and we can explore more beautiful sites here.

Excellent! Valentina is knowledgeable, energetic, and personable. At several points in the day, she reminded me of our itinerary, yet the pace throughout was relaxed and adapted to my particular interests. She took care to show me a variety of topographies and sites in the Muscat area. Being with her was somehow like interacting with an old friend in a new environment.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sanrda, it was a real pleasure to travel with you around Muscat area. You are a wonderful communicator!

Valentina shared extensive local knowledge and passion for the country with us in a charming and respectful way. She customised our tour and included a visit to a hotel lobby so we could listen to an excellent local harpist. An earlier lunch break would have been appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and recommend Valentina wholeheartedly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rosie and Grae, I am happy to know that you enjoyed the tour very much. And thanks a lot for your advise about the lunch break. I will try my best to select some other nice restaurant to be used at earlier stage of this tour. I hope Rosie was able to get lots of wonderful photos and it will remind you about your trip to this beautiful country.
