- Oman is a beautiful country: the scenery is stunning and the people are really friendly. The two hotels in Muscat and Nizwa were fine, and I loved the three nights wild camping in the desert. The tents were quite small for two people but I was on my own so very comfortable. Our guide, Sunil, was excellent. The only drawback for me was that the holiday was rather too sedentary. Transport in 4WD cars was very good, the views were fantastic and there were plenty of loo stops, but I would have liked a bit more opportunity to walk; the few walks we had were just short strolls. I knew this when I booked and, for a short (8-day) holiday, I felt the itinerary was very good; we certainly saw a lot.
