    What to Expect
    The tour begins by driving through the beautiful embassy quarter of Muscat en route to Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. You will stop to visit the mosque, a splendor of unique Islamic architecture. A popular visit to Nizwa, the former capital of the interior and the birthplace of Islam in the Sultanate of Oman. Nizwa is enchanting with forts, the most famous being the Round tower Fort, built in the 17th Century and its Souq is renowned for its intricately hand-carved “Khanjars (daggers) and ornamental silver jewellery.

    The tour then heads to Wadi Nakhel, which is situated at the bottom of the Jebel Shams, Oman’s Grand Canyon and on to Misfah, one of the oldest mountain villages in Oman. You will be taken along the mountain road to Jebel Shams with a stop at another farming village called Wadi Ghul, where you can catch one of the best views of the highest peak in the Jebel Shams range about 3000 meters above sea level. The tour proceeds to Al Hamra, a 300 year old town lying on the edge of a sprawling oasis. An off road tracks to the secluded 13th Century village of Misfat Al Brein, which clings to the edge of the Canyon and return to Muscat.

    You will then be returned to your hotel in Muscat.
