I wanted to let you know that Rosemary and I had the absolute best time In Salalah!! Eliot, thank you for “pushing” me to extend our time in Oman. It was the best thing we could have done!!
Our guide, Khalid was incredible!!! We could never have asked for a more knowledgeable, patient and kind person to show us his part of the country. He went out of his way (literally) to make our time in Salalah so special. Khalid really knows his way around and definitely showed us more that what was listed on our itinerary.
One of our highlights was a stop at his mountain home for tea and to see what a typical guest room looks like. (Also met his adorable son) We saw what farm life is like and got the chance to meet his cows and baby camel. He was always willing to go the extra mile!!
We loved our hotel too!!! So luxurious!!! So so nice to get back after a long day of touring to an Incredibly delicious dinner waiting. We both fell in love with Oman and the wonderful people. We will never forget the kindness of our guide Khalid. On the last night he took us to an amazing honey shop (because I expressed interest) and to several other shops we would never have found on our own. He was probably exhausted but still got us to the airport at 2:30am!!
Thank you so much for arranging this for us!!
Christine & Rosemary.
