The A Taste Of Oman trip starts from and ends in Muscat. It is a countryside and village visits tour that takes 7 days taking you through Muscat, Wahiba Sands and Nizwa in Oman. A Taste Of Oman is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This is the Arabia of Aladdin’s dreams. Explore the historic city of Muscat and drive along the coast to the bubbling fishing village of Seeb. By 4WD, travel to the rugged interior and the splendid forts of Nakhal and Al Hazm, framed by the spectacular Jebel Akhdar Mountains. Continue on to explore the beautiful oasis at Wadi Bani Khaled, before entering the vast Wahiba Sands – where we sleep at a rustic desert camp under a blanket of brilliant stars. The charming oasis of Lisq and the village of Mudaibi, further reveal the local life of Oman, as does a browse of the fabulous souk of ancient Nizwa. Meet the people, learn of their delicate silverware, woodwork and embroidery, and unwind in the cool heights of the Mountain of the Sun, all before a further wander of the wonderful maze of Muscat.

“Walking was tough - an endurance test. Transport of luggage between hotels worked well. Documentation was not very accurate, but way-marking on the paths was good. We felt a sense of achievement on completing the walk.”
