AL MAALAM TOURS AGENCY

Al Maalam Tours (the commercial entity behind this) was created in 2010 by 3 young omani and french guides.

The project was successful and the team grew quickly.

In a multicultural environment, each one learned from others skills and human qualities.

2017, the company took a break and stopped its activities. It was the opportunity for everyone to dedicate him/herself to something else.

We restart in 2021 with the same persons, fresh, enriiched with new experiences, and with new projects.

BEATRICE

After having guided since 2008 classic trekking tours in Oman, I started in 2019 to focus more on ornithology.

The Sultanate of Oman is iidealy located between Himalaya and Africa and hosts an amazing diversity of bird species, from impressing steppe eagles to very small sunbirds and a bunch of seabirds. Discovering Oman with binoculars gave me a new focus and offered me opportunity to visit other beautiful sites.

When I'm not in Oman in winter, I share my life between Périgord (France), Alps, and Austria.

EXPERIENCE :


We have a team of experienced guides and drivers.
We hire younger persons who we teach : they work as drivers with different guides and drivers until they are able to work as a guide themselves.


LOCAL INTEGRATION :


Although we are of very diverse origins, we are all very well integrated in Oman : we all have at least basic arabic phrases, and we understand local coodes and customs.
We also cultivate very good relationships with the population of the places which we visit.


QUALITY :


We always try to improve our service (equipment, itineraries) and our skills (cooking, knowledge, human relations).
We have efficient IT tools which prevent us from doing mistakes caused by lack of attention or oversight while preparing the tours.
Above all, we are very much self-demanding.


HAPPINESS :


Being serious and self-demanding does not mean being austere!
Experience tought us that the most important thing in a tour was happiness and goood mood ; so, we are careful to keep happpy, and it's not something difficult to us!


ON DEMAND :


Our IT tools and our experience make us very efficient in the making of on-demand itineraries : we try, from first tour proposal to offer you an itinerary which suits your level, your interests, and your financial means.


RESPONSIBLE TOURISM :


Aware of social and ecological impacts of tourism, we humbly try to limit them through simple steps :
- Waste reduction
- Optimized itineraries to avoid unnecessary drives
- Deep respect for the persons living in the places which we visit
- We developp off-the-beaten track itineraries to spread tourism activities instead of concentrating them in a few places
- Small groups are limited to 12 persons to avoid mass-tourism and encourage interactions

However, we do not see our activity only as socialy and ecologicaly harmful, since it also serves a long-term goal of social and ecological improvement :
- By hiking, camping, or staying several days in the desert, we introduce you to a more simple way of life
- We promote intercultural exchanges, which leads to a better understanding of others and finaly to peace
- Trekking tourism has also positive economical effects localy
