Private tour with 'Dhow Khasab Tours' ; excellent. A long duration port stay would've been nice

Felt like the end of the world, a small village. They dropped us off at a "mall" which actually, no exaggeration, was a local supermarket which smelled of Jayes Fluid. Couldn't buy a coffee, as cards were not taken.

Took a Dhow cruise to fjords - saw loads of dolphins. Best bit - there was lots of space on board; I’ve been on catamaran cruises where you’re packed in like sardines

You land by tender, we got the shuttle into the "city" it's a bit of a dump with 3 shops on either side of the road selling the same tacky junk. Total waste of time, the only thing worth seeing is from the ship just before dusk ... Read More
You land by tender, we got the shuttle into the "city" it's a bit of a dump with 3 shops on either side of the road selling the same tacky junk. Total waste of time, the only thing worth seeing is from the ship just before dusk when scores of speedboats full of boxes leave port for Iran; these are smugglers breaking the trade embargo. The police boats were at the harbour gate but didn't seem to bother, either they have given up or just don't care. Read Less

Walked around from the ship. Not much to see. 4 hour dhow trip looked dull and uncomfortable. Better off staying onboard

We enjoyed Khasab, but be aware any coach trip involves narrow twisty roads, which if it rains become very slippy

Loved Khasab. Beautiful fjord type scenery. We took a lovely boat trip with a local guide who was very interested in the dolphins and made a special effort to hang back as the other boats were heading to shore to let us see the dolphins again and we were rewarded by them following us! Also you can actually walk to the museum and a big supermarket. Read Less

Did the 4x4 adventure into the mountains. One of our best adventures ever. Roads led to ancient Bedouin caves and newer settlements in the mountains. Roads are precariously perched along mountain sides and views and history is wonderful. ... Read More
Did the 4x4 adventure into the mountains. One of our best adventures ever. Roads led to ancient Bedouin caves and newer settlements in the mountains. Roads are precariously perched along mountain sides and views and history is wonderful. Rising to 4,000 feet, you get to see fossils from this elevated area which were once at the bottom of the sea. A remarkable experience to see how the Sultanate of Oman has been transformed over the past 50 years. Read Less

We took the Dhow Cruise, it was a lovely day setting out but cold coming back, bring a hoody! Water and soft drinks served onboard the boat and we saw loads of dolphins. There was a stop for swimming.

We took the Dhow cruise to see the “fiords “ and the dolphins. This was just amazing, the scenery was stunning and the dolphins came out to play. We then had a stop for swimming on telegram island. Our guide again was very informative and gave an interesting commentary. We were offered refreshments aboard which was very nice. I would recommend this trip, and would do it again myself. Read Less
