Net Tours, Oman is located in Muscat, the capital city of Oman.
Combining the best of Muscat, Salalah, Musandam and other tourist attractions in and around Oman, visitors can enjoy a relaxing holiday or a rewarding incentive trip.

A healthy synergy
Net Group Executive Chairman, Mr. Ali Z.A. Abu Monassar said, "The new partnership stems from a long-standing synergy between Thomas Cook and Net Group, both known for leadership in their respective areas of business." Net Tours, Dubai has been functioning as the designated tour partner of Thomas Cook in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for many years, and the inclusion of Net Tours, Oman is more than a logical extension, he said.
Welcoming the new business partnership, Mr. Salim Al Masroori, General Manager, Net Tours, Oman said, "We are proud to be associated with Thomas Cook, and we will offer the best possible support in hotel booking, tours and all related services." Ms Beatrice Macias, Senior Contracts Manager, Long Haul Division, Thomas Cook AG, appreciated the new development.
Golf and luxury
The United Arab Emirates is grabbing the attention of worldwide golf-lovers, thanks to their fantastic golf courses, said David Milican, Group General Manager, Net Group. Himself an avid golfer, Milican supports Net Golf, the specialized golf tour operator under the Net Group.
"For the first time, starting 1st November 2008, the UAE will be featured in the Thomas Cook Golf brochure," he remarked. "Thomas Cook recognizes the potential for golfers to enjoy a break in the Emirates. Including the destination in its winter brochure will help to increase awareness and allow golfers to enjoy the excellent range of courses now available here."
The new tourism season will also add a touch of class to the UAE round trip enjoyed by Thomas Cook clients.
