    Oman Day tours

    I think you can book Oman Day Tours with confidence. They come very highly recommended by Trip Advisor and so we decided to book with them. I had very many questions which Sarah, the Operations Manager, dealt with quickly and efficiently. I even chatted with her via her website and she was very helpful, effective and left me in no doubt as to what to expect. We're about to go on a cruise which will visit Salalah and we will do the East and West Salalah excursion with them. I'm sure that we're in for a very good time, judging from what I've experienced so far. They seem to be a highly reputable and professional company so I would say that you will be more than OK to book with them. Their prices compare very favourably with those offered by the cruise lines. :) Best wishes, Pauline About to embark on Splendour of the Seas 28/11/15

    Chinese Visa from the UK

    Hi there, Cheapest and easiest way is to go to the chinese consulate with your completed form/passport and then collect it 4 working days after. You need to pay £81 per visa and pay by cash or debit card. This is the way to go. We did the same but had to go to Manchester for ours as we live 30 miles south. Even with our transport up to Manchester, it was cheaper than paying agency fees and special delivery costs. Hope this helps. Pauline
  3. This will be our third cruise - going on Sea Princess ex Montego Bay on Dec 19th for two weeks. We've never been away at Christmas before and we're also celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. I would like to surprise my hubby by taking our own bottle of champers but I believe you can't take your own alcohol on board ship. Is there any way round this - on previous cruises we've been happy to buy from the bars but hubby was made redundant in March and with the economy tight, we're on a budget now. Appreciate any help/advice/tips. Many thanks, Pauline :)
