WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS TOUR
LIFESTYLE IN THE DESERT
Turn the pages back to over 100 years ago, pre-1920’s before there were cars or any modern amenities, when camels were ‘the ships of the desert’. This experience takes you on an adventure into the culture and history of a bygone era and gives you the chance to live a day in the life of a true Bedouin.
SEE THE ANCIENT CITY OF NIZWA COME TO LIFE
On Fridays, watch as farmers and traders from all over Oman come together to barter and trade their livestock and handicrafts for a living. Located at one of the finest traditional markets that exist today, there are some traditions that never change. See what life must have been like in a much older time!
MUSCAT IS AN ADVENTURE-OF-A-DIFFERENT-KIND
Oman’s city capital is a reflection of how its country has traditionally kept one eye on trade across the Indian Ocean and the other on the ancient routes of the desert. Today, with its respect for heritage, its elegant mosques, conservative tastes, and smart cafes have made Oman a quiet champion of modern Arab culture.
