MARHABA! I am, Qamber Al-Balushi, your local Omani licensed Tour guide since inception in 2013. Has been venturing into the geographical arena of the Sultanate of Oman and making utmost efforts to make the best deal available to my clients. Oman is well-recognized for its beautiful scenery such as the mountains, beaches valleys, golden deserts, and the ancient Arabic culture and heritage that offers diversity. I have always been quite interested in my country’s history, culture, and extremely beautiful landscapes which in due define my personality. I recognize myself as an extrovert who likes to socialize and interact with different peope across the continents so there is no much better way to do this than being a tour guide.

Nonostante mi fosse arrivata la mail di conferma della prenotazione e anche la mail che mi ricordava il mio walking tour poiché ore prima, quando ho scritto al Guru, mi ha risposto che non era disponibile e che avrei dovuto contattarlo alcuni giorni prima… servizio pessimo!

I'm terribly disappointed, the guide didn't show up, and when another guide call him, he was in another city. He said he just post in Guruwalk to get clients.

Qambar was lovely! What a wonderful day exploring muscat. Hit all the highlights and he drove us in a nicely air conditioned vehicle which was a welcome surprise given the heat!

Guru canceled tour a month ago but not here at app, when I asked him why, he gave me his number and tried to sell me 3 days tour arround Oman, for that he had time (for ‘good price’ as he said) so it seems that Freetour in Muscat doesn’t exist, this guy is just trying to make upsale and it seems fraud, be carefull with him, not recommending at all tour with him. He said that he cannot organize tour but didn’t wanted to cancel, he cancel once I said that I will write review of him not showing. GuruWalk should check him, I used free tours in more than 20 countries so far, this is first time expirencing something like this.
