UAE trip – October 2015
Hi Tom,
I want to thank you very much for you assistance - just about everything worked out really well, and in most cases better than planned. I did visit the pearl museum in Dubai - and it was wonderful. What a collection! I was given a solo tour, which was a treat. It is certainly worth a visit.
The archaeological museum in Sharjah was another highlight, and the maritime museum there is also spectacular.
The pearl tour I took in Abu Dhabi's Eastern Mangroves was also good, if too brief. It is quite expensive, but I would recommend it for a tourist itinerary. And you get to take home a pearl (cultured, but still).
The trip overall was a wild success, and I achieved much more than I thought possible. Thanks again for your part in that.
Best wishes, Deborah
 
Dubai Stopover, July 2015
Hi Tom,
All went well in Dubai,  Great hotel, transfers tours and skiing all went well, very professional operators.  Ramadan was only a very minor inconvenience and no alcohol after 2 months of excessive drinking in Turkey and Europe was a good thing.

March-April 2015 in Oman & Turkey - Private Arrangements
Oman:
Yakob, our guide in Oman with Mark Tours, was an excellent driver and guide- he was flexible with arrangements and extremely knowledgable across a vast range of interesting topics. The Alila hotel at Jabal Akdhar was outstanding, and we would highly recommend it.
Turkey:
The car rental went smoothly, and we were able to rent a Renault Megane which was an automatic diesel, and managed the hills/mountains beautifully. 
The Cappadocia driver and guide were also excellent, and the Museum Hotel was superb.
Thanks again for your assistance in organising such a brilliant trip. 
Kind regards, Helen and Brian Bowring
 
Cultural Oman Tour - October 2013
Good Morning,
We recently returned from Oman, where we travelled on your Cultural Oman tour for 9 days. We were most impressed with the tour – everything ran like clockwork; our guide from Mark Tours was very knowledgeable and entertaining and the accommodation was of a very high standard.
Initially, our contact with Timeless was via the internet, but our travel agent, took over the arrangements as she was handling other bookings for our trip.We have advised Lindsey that we were delighted with the trip and we are confident that she will recommend Timeless to any other clients who may be visiting Oman.
Thank you for a most enjoyable tour and we wish you all the best for a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
Kind Regards, Bronwen and Karl-Heinz Töpfer

Dubai / Oman - February 2012
Well we are now back after a wonderful trip. Thanks for your organisation of the ground content – it all went very smoothly. We were met at Dubai and transferred seamlessly to Al Ain….
Our Oman guide was absolutely brilliant! He was funny and charming, and friendly and got on with everyone around him – to the extent that we were wandering around an old ruined castle that we had found by chance, and there were only two other people there – local guys, and after a chat with Khalid, they invited us back to their house for coffee, and ended up staying for lunch! A very interesting experience. We did change to timetable somewhat – Khalid made some great suggestions, one of which had us at a camel market where we were the only foreigners, but it was all really interesting, and people were very friendly even though we stood out as pretty weird! The desert camp was terrific too – there were only 10 foreigners staying there, so it was all very small and intimate.
Our cruise took us back to Muscat only a couple of days later, and Khalid met us again there off the ship, and took us around Muscat for the morning, and lunch, before he had to go and get some more tourists from Al Ain, so it was fantastic of him to do that – he and my daughter April got on really well, and we were like one happy family for a few days there, with me as the Mum, and my kids!
Anyway, thanks for the trip, we had a great time! I would love to go back one day, and see the south part of the country, and spend more time in the desert.
Cheers, Helena
 
Oman 2006 - From Brig and Robyn
We have just returned from an amazing visit to Oman. We arrived with some reservations about our personal safety, and living conditions generally, and left with a magic aura, wanting more! It's one of the safest destinations we have visited, we were treated with great respect, the cities and countryside are clean, and the road network is as modern as any we have seen. Scenically it is amazing, ranging from barren, soaring mountains, to deserts and to beautiful emerald seas. Accommodation is excellent, food apetizing, and service friendly and helpful. Shopping the souqs is an added adventure! We adored Oman, and were looked after extremely well. We had the same driver all the way, and fell in love with him (Faisal).
Thanks again, Brig and Robyn

Just to let you know, Tom, that our tour to Wadi Shab with "Johnny" (didn't see it written, but that's what it sounded like) of Mark Tours, was absolutely great. English was quite a struggle for him, but he more than made up for it with what he showed us, his patience and willingness - a thoroughly nice guide who was much appreciated. (Lunch was huge too!). Compared very well with some of the opposition. We'd certainly recommend them. Regards, Mary & Pauline.
