    After breakfast, check-out from your hotel. Meet your guide and board your 4X4 car to start a fascinating round tour of Oman. Visit Misfah, a pretty village with stone houses, precariously clinging to the side of a huge mountain cliff. The village is laden with date, lemon and banana groves. Visit the village of Al Hamra, famous for their old multi-storied mud houses surrounded by a vast expanse of lush green date plantations. Drive to Jabal Shams, the highest peak in the Gulf region. Enjoy breath taking view of the Grand Canyon.

    Drive to Jabrin and visit the majestic Jabrin castle which enables the visitor to recapture the atmosphere of medieval Oman. The 17th century fort is one of Oman’s finest castles and has some exquisite hand-painted ceilings. (The Jabrin castle has two floors of steps to climb in order to view all the rooms and the terrace). Islamic inscriptions combine with secret hiding. After visits, drive to Nizwa, the cultural capital of Oman.

    Overnight stay in Nizwa

    Meals included: Breakfast


    After breakfast, check-out from the hotel and proceed to visit Nizwa Souq. A walk through the traditional Nizwa Souq, one of the oldest Souqs in the country is fascinating. This extensive marketplace is dedicated mostly to fruit and vegetables, meat and fish, all of which are housed in separate blocks behind the great, crenellated piece of city wall that overlooks the wadi. Part of the Souq (near the fort) is dedicated to handicrafts and souvenirs. If you are here on a Friday morning, a stroll through the traditional livestock market is a must. You will also visit the fort of Nizwa. With its massive Circular Cannon Tower, Nizwa Fort is one of the most impressive and authentic forts in Oman

    Later drive to Sinaw and visit the Souq. Sinaw Souq features different areas for women and men, which are designated by a sign, but the action often spills out on to the streets, with sellers who missed out on a prime spot under the covered area opting to set up shop and display their wares along the pavement.

    Drive to Wadi Bani Khalid – a beautiful oasis in the middle of the dry mountains. It is one of the most beautiful wadis in Oman with its clear deep blue water pools, where you have an opportunity to take a refreshing dip. You can even try walking through the wadi all the way to Muqal caves. Then proceed to Wahiba sands, a mighty sea of red and white sand. The ever-changing patterns of the dunes are a photographer’s delight. This extreme landscape, shaped by the winds, has been home to the Bedu tribes for more than 500 years. Sunset on nearby sand dunes.

    Overnight stay in desert camp

    After breakfast, check-out from the camp and start your scenic drive to Muscat via coastal route. Pass by the coastal town of Sur, which has a rich history in Oman’s maritime past. Stop at the ruins of Bibi Miriam’s Tomb which can be seen at the village of Qalhat on coastal road to Muscat.

    The next stop is Wadi Shab, another beautiful wadi. Walk along the palm groves through rugged rocky cliffs to reach mesmerizing water pools. You may swim through some pools to get to the main attraction, which is the submerged cave with waterfalls. If time permits, you will also get a chance to visit the Bimmah Sinkhole, a spectacular limestone crater with blue green water at the bottom.
