What you'll do

Wadi Shab Tour
One of our popular and awe-inspring experiences. It’s one of the most stunning wadis in our country. The water has carved its way through the rock over centuries, creating deep gorges and fresh water pools. From the parking lot starts a 45 minutes hike along the wadi until reaching the deep aquamarine pools at the back of the valley. There will some rocks to climb over in the wadi, but otherwise it is not a difficult hike. Please be aware that you will have to walk through the water toward the end of the hike, so appropriate footwear is recommended.
We will enjoy an afternoon of swimming in the pool, and for those of you who are more adventurous there is also a swim-through cave with an underground waterfall to experience.

Nasser was fantastic. He took me out to Wadi Shab on a last minute booking, so even though he didn't have any of his usual gear with him, I still had a great time, but sure wished I had on beach shoes! Overall it was a wonderful day and Wadi Shab is simply amazing, one of the most special places I've ever swum at. Nasser is also really knowledgeable about various things regarding Oman/Muscat and is well-travelled himself. Highly recommended!

This is a once in a lifetime experience! The suspense as you hike to the Wadi was spectacular, walking through the canyons and being with nature was really cool. Once you dive into the water it was perfect temperature after the hike. Nasser was very careful to walk us through the right path and ensure we were safe and comfortable at all times. The Wadi at the end made it all worth it. Later we went to an authentic lunch by the beach with amazing views! Nasser was very nice, informative and funny. Thank you for the wonderful experience!! A must do in Muscat!

We can highly recommend the Wadi Shab tour with Nasser. The Wadi Shab and Bimmah sinkhole are beautiful, breathtaking natural "phenomena" in their own and Nasser was a great guide. I had failed to read the guidelines thoroughly enough and hadn't brought my beach shoes and Nasser was so kind to lend me his for the passages in shallow water where you walk on rubble. But for the sake of Nasser's feet - do remember to bring your beach shoes when joining this trip! :-)

Nasser is a very polite and thoughtful person. The trip was amazing. Super safe and worth seeing. Nasser gave great advice as you really need hiking boots and beach shoes. I would add swimming googles and a water camera (a must) to capture the very end. Wadi Shab is a majestic place!

The host picked us up at the airport earlier than the listed start time which was much appreciated. The trip itself was fantastic - the drive out to the wadi and back was over an hour, but the scenery was totally breathtaking (and the ac was a nice reprieve from the heat). The wadi was becoming more crowded on our hike out so I would recommend going as early as possible. The trip is pricey but unfortunately standard for this tour. It is a once in a life time experience - if you don’t have a car, book this trip.

What an awesome way to start an Oman adventure with an exceptional host Naseer. He communicated efficiently and pick up time form hotel was on the dot. There were 2 of us on this tour and were driven in a nice comfortable car to both the sink hole and wadi shab. Our very first stop was at the sink hole which was breathtaking and then were whisked off to the wadi shab trekking through the canyons. There were few stops to take a breather and some water that was provided. Naseer checked in regularly and ensure were both okay with the walk. At the end of the walk we were greeted with the most rewarding swim that leads to a beautiful cave and waterfall. We finished up with a lunch that Naseer kindly offered before a final stop for some Oman tea which was beautiful (this was extra). I highly recommend the tour and you will be sure looked after. Naseer is very knowledgeable about his country and happily shared this with his enthusiasm in showing off his beautiful county. Thankyou I couldn't ask for a better tour guide and an awesome adventure
