We did two full day tours with Waleed at Sunshine and one half day tour with Ahmed. During all three, everything was amazing. Waleed is an amazing guide: friendly, knowledgeable and a person who will go out of his way to make sure you enjoy. On day one, we saw Wadi Shab + the Bimmah Sinkhole (make sure you bring water shoes for the Wadi - i did not know this was needed so Waleed went with us through the Wadi and to a local swimming cave even when many guides did not go with their people. Waleed helped us make it through some slippery areas and made sure we were comfortable and safe. I did it in flip flops - but a huge yes to water shoes in the future). The Wadi + the sinkhole were gorgeous. Then Waleed took us to a delicious restaurant. He ordered for us and we had some local fresh fish, rice + veggies (yummy). On the way home he stopped for us to see the Arabian Sea and some great views. On day two we went to Nizwa + Green Mountain. Waleed showed us around and stopped so many times to let us take photos and check out the view. He customized everything to us and made sure we were at the right places at the right times PLUS he knows everyone, so we got no pressure in the small shops we visited, we got delicious food like coconut, dates, halwa, king fish and more + with him we met so many lovely Omani people. On day three we were scheduled to leave early but our flight was delayed so Waleed arranged us a half day tour at the last minute with another guide, Ahmed. Ahmed was also fabulous. He took us to tour the grand mosque, the opera house and to experience a local Omani restaurant (per our request). We learned so much about the country of Oman, about the Omani people and their lives and traditions + I would highly recommend Sunshine Tours to anyone visiting Oman. As a side note, I am a woman visiting from the US who was traveling with a female friend. For anyone else traveling like us I wanted to share that I did not known much about Oman prior to my visit and did not know what to expect. I was so pleasantly surprised by the country and it’s beauty + the people who were beyond amazing. I felt safe the entire time I was in Oman. The people were kind and welcoming a gracious + helpful at any time I needed it. I often travel without tours but as I do not k wi any Arabic I thought a tour would be best. Waleed made both myself and my friend feel like family, 100% safe and at home in his country. Ahmed also showed us things he loved in Oman like his favorite halwa and some traditional foods. Sunshine made our trip ten star.

Excellent experience with Khalil Al Jabri - the guide arrived exactly 5 minutes before the arranged time, bought us water and was very friendly and helpful with all the questions all day long, also told us a lot about the sites we visited The sites were different from each other and each one interesting in its own way - you have a chance to taste local coffee and sweets at souk, see mountains and the fort, learn more about Oman recreation system Totally advise to spend one day on this trip once you’re in Muscat!

I had the pleasure of going on a tour with Waleed of Sunshine Tours Oman in December 2023. This company came by word of mouth from a friend who has previously booked with them, and I have nothing but good things to say. Waleed was a fantastic guide – he was knowledgeable about each of the sites we visited, adjusted our tour to help us see each of the sights we wanted, and helped us make the most of our limited time in Oman. Though usually prefer to explore on my own, I have never been happier with a guided tour and will absolutely recommend Sunshine Tours and Waleed in particular to every friend coming to Oman. It was a great value and a great tour. You won’t regret booking with them.
