I have posted a photo of myself with our group leader Waleed at the Oryx desert camp in the Oman sand dunes, one of many exciting and unusual stops on this excellent trip. This fast-paced adventure included magnificent architecture, a dhow cruise, mountain vistas, villages, date plantations, riding the dunes, and seeing egg-laying green sea turtles. As an RS group leader for Ashland, Oregon programs centered on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, I appreciated Waleed's knowledge of the area and its culture, and his caring flexibility in leading our group.

This was a great program and I highly recommend it. We went 3 days early to explore more of Dubai on our own, also recommended. The tour leader, Waleed, was excellent. Now is a great time to visit Oman before they become hardened to tourists.
