    Perfect itinerary. Not much time should be wasted at the Nizwa souk (the one in Muscat before the corniche is much better) because the aftermath deserves all the time possible. It is a pity that the choice of accommodation at the Sama Heigts is not given (only standard rooms and not the cottages). Very nice sunset tour with the canyon
