What people are saying about Al Hambra, Oman

The canyon trip with the morning in Nizwa was an absolutely stunning day trip. Our guide, Yahya, was exceptional and made it even more enjoyable and fun. In Nizwa, Yahya was great helping us with shopping questions and, having been to Nizwa before without a guide, it made for a different, broader experience. I hadn't known before our trip to the canyon/Jabal Shams that it is noticeably cooler up there than at the bottom of the mountains.

Excellent tour

We had a long, but very good trip into the mountains. Our guide was very knowledge and informative, and time spent on each stop was just right. Would absolutely recommend.

The excursion was very impressive and we really had a very, very good, courteous guide, he accompanied us everywhere and told a lot, was great! I can never recommend it

I recommend the guide Abdallah al-Siyabi, very friendly and passionate. the price may be a bit exaggerated when you know how much fuel and food cost

Very good. The driver was available and pleasant. The place where we eat and the meal were very good.
