Discover Oman

$2835

per person

This 6-day tour shares an opportunity to engage and be mesmerized by traditional Arabian charms and Bedouin hospitality. Oman unravels at a much slower pace, in contrast to the modern skyscrapers of its neighboring countries. It is filled with much history (dating as far back as the third millennium BC), bustling markets and magical sightseeing attractions, all which will simply take your breath away.

Soak up the atmosphere, chat with the locals and really absorb the culture. From its high mountains to its deep valleys, secluded beaches, and long pristine coastlines, not forgetting the delicious Omani dates and fragrant famous frankincense, there’s just so much to explore in every corner of Oman.

6 Days, 5 Nights: Muscat, Jabel Akhdar, Nizwa, Wadi Abiyad, Musannah

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.
