Everything about this experience was fabulous. Mohammed picked us up and gave us interesting facts about Oman on the way to dinner. Our dinner hosts were warm and welcoming. Food was abundant and delicious! This is a must-do for Muscat visitors.
My cousins, godson, and a family friend attended an evening last week with a wonderful Omani family through the founder, Hamed and Zayr Experiences. I am so incredibly grateful we found this opportunity. I know those who joined me feel the same. We could not say enough about the food and I tried at least a little bit of everything that they had on the table and I loved it all. We were so completely full at the end of the meal, but in a good way. While our American family is a wide mix of folks who grew up and lived in Saudi Arabia, Czech Republic, and Guatemala, all of us felt the fragrances and tastes of each course (and there were about 15!) were unique, complex, and flavorful. I should point out that our host family was incredibly gracious, very friendly, and engaging, and we were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived at their door until they walked us out to our car. In short, I would do this again and contact Hamed the next time we head to Muscat, Oman. An evening like this is a ribbon-winner.
Wir wurden wie gewünscht abgeholt und zur Familie gefahren. Dort freundlich empfangen und haben viel über das Land und die Menschen erfahren. Offenheit und Toleranz zeichnen den Oman aus.
We visited a very friendly and welcoming family who had a very nice home to experience Omani food and learn more about the culture. My wife got to help out cooking too. They were also kind enough to give us some gifts to take with us too (spices and frankincense). Their English was great and the conversation was flowing. They have also travelled a lot like us so it was fun to talk about those experiences. Thanks for the experience, definitely worth doing if you want to appreciate the real Oman. Thanks
Ce dimanche de mars j'ai pu de rencontrer une famille Omanaise et connu leur hospitalité. Par l'intermédiaire de l'organisme ZAYR Experience, j'ai été accueilli par une famille du nord de Mascate. Ce fut un réel bonheur. Leur hospitalité, au Sultanat d'Oman, n'est pas une légende. C'est une réalité. J'ai passé une merveilleuse soirée par l'accueil du couple et des enfants et de membres de leur famille : discussions sur tous les sujets devant café, thé, fruits, dattes, suivi d'un repas typiquement Omanais, préparé avec des produits locaux. Une expérience absolument inoubliable. Si je retourne à Oman je referai l'expérience.
This Sunday in March I was able to meet an Omani family and know their hospitality. Organized by ZAYR Experience, I was hosted by a family from North Muscat. It was a real happiness. Their hospitality, in the Sultanate of Oman, is not a legend. It's a reality. I had a wonderful evening with the welcome of the couple and children and family members : discussions with coffee, tea, fruits, , followed by a typical meal, prepared with local products. An absolutely unforgettable experience. If I go back to Oman I do it again.
