Muscat: Full-Day Nizwa Tour with Audio Guiding

1. Muscat: Full-Day Nizwa Tour with Audio Guiding

Get picked up from your hotel and head to the Shatti Al-Qurum hotel where the tour begins. Your driver will show you how to use the audio guide system to benefit the GPS enabled commentary (available in five languages) that follows the tour. Travel towards to Nizwa, Oman’s cultural capital and home to some of its most significant structures. Along the way, stop at a charming ancestral village called Birka Al Mawz, which sits at the base of Jebel Akhdar (Green Mountain). In Nizwa, admire the central fort and its giant cannon tower; walk through the traditional souq (market); and, of course, enjoy a local restaurant for lunch. After lunch, visit the unique Jabreen Castle, built in the 17th century. It has magnificent plasterwork, carved doors, and painted wooden beams. You'll also see Jebel Shams—one of the most famous mountains in Oman—and one of the oldest towns in the region, Oman Bahla, before heading back to your hotel.

Daliah: 2 Day Package Tour

2. Daliah: 2 Day Package Tour

Explore Nizwa, the old capital city of Oman, at the famous Nizwa Souq. A wide variety of vendors offer their goods each morning. Here you can find fish, meat, vegetables, pottery, jewelry, handicrafts and souvenirs, sold in authentic market halls. Watch as vendors hawk their livestock at the Friday cattle market. Nearby Nizwa Fortress is architectural testimony to the economic and military achievements of the early Yaruba dynasty from the mid-17th century. It was a military stronghold designed to withstand even the strongest of attacks, with traps galore set for possible intruders in its hallowed halls. The picturesque village Misfath al Abreen lies on a steep slope at the foot of Jebel Shams, and has a large Falaj system which supplies water for many orchards, date palms and vegetable gardens. Then head up Jebel Shams Mountain; at 3000 meters, it is the highest mountain of Oman. Finally, time for some beauty sleep with an overnight at Jebel Shams Resort. The next morning, why not explore the Grand Canyon of Oman among the bevy of walking paths, where you'll take in spectacular views of the wadis and valleys below? Further down the mountain, Jabrin Castle, erected in 1670 by a sultan, beckons. Go back in time with exhibits of furniture and traditional utensils, take a gander at the elaborate wood carvings, ceiling paintings, and stucco work. The last stop offers a hard choice: will it be the Al Hoota Caves with its underground rivers, or UNESCO World Heritage Site the Bahla Fortress with its 132 watchtowers and 12 km of walls? Let the decision be yours.

This tour is a must for all who want to learn more about the tradition and culture of Oman. Tour to Nizwa to the Nizwa Fort with the Nizwa Souq. Traveling through the Hajar mountains. We visited the wonderful Jabreen castle and we have seen the Bahla Fort. Lunch was good in a simple local restaurant. Khalil our tour guide is very professional and very pleasant in order to arrange a pleasant journey for his guests. I have met Khalil already for a tour in muscat and I was very happy to see him again. ***** (five stars rating)

A very enjoyable tour with a charming tour guide driver. Everything went very well and the pace of the tour was good. There was quite a lot of walking but by the end of the day, we were only slightly tired but satisfied with what we had seen and the information we were given. We particularly enjoyed the company of the guide, driver, we had long and involved conversations with him and learned a lot.

It was a great day out and we really enjoyed exploring interesting historic sites outside Muscat. Our driver and guide Malik was very professional and approachable. I would highly recommend this trip.
