In 2010, Ibrahim & Antoine opened the tour operator AL MAALAM TOURS which has developped over 6 years to become a leading company in the field of trekking and adventure tourism in Oman.
It was a great adventure which brought us a lot. With our guides we formed a strong team both professional (serious and experimented), and relaxed. We enjoyed a lot showing Oman to our guests, as well as always exploring new routes in mountains, wadis, and desert. And above all, we had a lot of fun!
After these 6 ecellent years, in 2016, we were feeling like doing something else...
So that this great adventure does not stop suddenly and goes on another way, we decided to change a bit our website so that it helps connect travellers to the guides who have worked with us.
I have worked for 8 years in Oman as a guide and also as manager of al Maalam tours.
I have settled again in France but I keep coming to Oman during winters.
I know all the areas and activities offered on this website. I am happy to run demanding tours with hiking and canyoning, but also more relaxing discovery tours.
I come from Nizwa. I have worked for 10 years as a trekking guide and also manager of Al Maalam Tours.
I can do all kind of tours, from easy to demanding. In winter, I like particularly trips with mountain hiking and canyoning, as well as desert tours. In Summer (from end of April until mid october) I take only canyoning trips, because it is too hot for hiking or desert tours.
I also rent camping equipment.

And from now until then, there is time and space to dream…
