Great experience but make sure you do it for a reasonable price

The experience of Wadi Shab is not to be missed - a great day out. Doing it as a private tour through Viator was a mistake though as the cost was totally over the top for the 2 of us. Our fault this as we arranged things very last minute. Health and safety is never mentioned before or during the trip but be aware you need to be a reasonably capable swimmer to do the full trip into the cave at the end. En-route rocks can be very slippery but with care it is a great experience. The dress code does not seem to be as strictly adhered to as we were led to believe and was very relaxed. The wadi is well worth seeing even if you don't do the swim. Bimmah Sinkhole was worth seeing and with more time would have been worth a swim. The lunch included in our package was very basic as were the refreshments provided on our journey - 4 dates, a paper cup of coffee/tea from a roadside vendor and bottled water.

Wadi Shab must do in Muscat

We did this day tour from the port coming off a cruise ship. The guide met us at the cruise port gates and we began our trip. The drive was less than 1.5 hr. He was so friendly that time flew by. We really did not know what to expect in Oman or this tour, but it was absolutely amazing. The hike through the rocky terrain was beautiful albeit scary for some afraid of heights. The water and getting to the cave was well worth it. Definitely bring shoes for rocks that can get wet and are not slippery. I was worried about what to wear as a female but just some yoga like pants and a shirt was fine. After wadi shab, we stopped for lunch overlooking the sea, then on to the lake and then ended with a tour of the city. We definitely think the tour guide was a huge part in the success of this tour. My husband who is incredibly skeptical of these things said it was the best excursion or tour he has ever done and he loved Oman

Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. He taught us a lot of cultural stories during the long drive. Wadi Shab need a tough walking. He always finds a good route for was and helped us very careful all the time. During the walking, he also greeting and helping people passed by all the time. Such a nice guy!!

Ahmed, our guide is educated, cultured, decent, and when I got a little accident, he showed his human face. The location, although not close to Muscat, provides a wonderful experience. It's worth it!

There were three of us and we really enjoyed the day out, our guide was a lovely guy, very friendly but he had clearly not done this regularly. We took a few wrong turns and were very late arriving for lunch. Lunch is close the Wadi Shab and to be honest the food was terrible. Although we enjoyed the day, it was very expensive for what you got. It would be cheaper to hire a car and even cheaper to pay a taxi driver to take you, especially if there are two or more people going.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip! Our guide was so knowledgeable and helpful. There was a lot more swimming than we had expected, so be prepared. We were extremely happy that the company provided waterproof bags for our phones, since we didn't have our own. Amazing day!!

Wadi Shab & sinkhole private tour
Louise M

I highly recommend this private tour. Illyas was a fantastic and generous guide who indulged all our photo requests and didn't rush us at all throughout the day. Despite the long car rides, we stopped at convenience stores for snacks and again for stunning views at Illyas' suggestion. Lunch was simple, but enjoyed at a quaint family restaurant in a local town. Wadi Shab was amazing and in my opinion better than the sinkhole (we didn't swim at the sinkhole).

An excellent day. The guide/driver was fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful. I will definitely be returning to undertake some of the other trips on offer.
