What You Can Expect
After a tour of Nizwa you will continue on to the souk, famous for its Bedouin silver jewelry.
The drive continues via Tanuf and Bahla to Jabreen, to visit one of Oman's most beautiful forts, famous for its wall and ceiling murals, before returning to your hotel in Muscat.
A good tour - driver who was also the tour guide mostly very knowledgeable about his country although sometimes only said what he thought we wanted to hear ie no snakes in Oman. Delicious clean and freshly cooked Indian lunch. A long day but god value and well worth the cost.
It was a long and perfect day. Our driver, Rasheed from Orient tours, was very polite, extremely knowledgeable and interesting, and a good driver. We thoroughly enjoyed the drive to Nizwah, past beautiful mountains with interesting geology dotted with numerous watch towers from bygone times. Nizwah was fascinating with all the markets, souks and the fort, which was not only imposing but provided a terrific view from the tower of the surrounding city covered with palm trees. We really enjoyed driving though the interior, with great vistas all around. The stop at the Jabreen Castle was also fascinating, very worthwhile. We could take only one day tour from Muscat and we picked the right one. Highly recommended!
