    A really beautiful adventure

    My week in Oman was such a special experience. Having travelled there without much knowledge of the country, I was absolutely blown away with the beauty and adventure it has to offer. This was my first trip with Exodus and I was really impressed with the level of communication in the lead up to the trip. I felt secure and confident with the arrangements and had clarity with the itinerary and instructions throughout. The agenda for the week was jam-packed but it meant that we got to see SO much while we were there. It's not a trip for someone looking to unwind and relax as there is very little time for that, but if you're looking for amazing scenery, interesting experiences and fun memories, then this one is for you!
    A busy but very worthwhile week exploring the Pearl of Arabia

    I very much recommend this one week exploration of the cultural and ancient heritage of wonderful Oman. It's a busy tour but all forms of travel and accommodation are very comfortable. The people we met throughout the tour were all proud of their heritage and extremely friendly. Oman is a very safe country. The itinerary is varied as are the fabulous landscapes encountered. Most meals were included and of good quality...plenty of affordable, tasty food to be had in local cafes/restaurants ...avoid branded "western" restaurants which are very expensive. Our guide, Zubair, was very knowledgeable, very funny, worked hard and was clearly a great ambassador for his country.
    Stunning landscapes!

    An excellent holiday in an amazing country - we fitted so much into a week it felt like we'd been there for a fortnight! The tour has a great mix of activities in different locations from cities, to desert, to mountains, which gives a great flavour of Oman. The locals were friendly and welcoming, and the food was tasty. Our guide Zubair was very very good - full of information about the country and sites, very patient at answering all of our questions, a great sense of humour, and well organised to herd the group around to schedule. I'd recommend this trip!

    Oman - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

    The Bimmah Sinkhole
    The enchanting Bimmah sinkhole in Oman

    As the oldest independent state in the middle east, Oman and its people are incredibly proud of the country's heritage and modern progress. A land of impressive sand dunes, bustling souks and markets, and impressive architecture (including the famous Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque), Oman is an Arabian paradise. Rich in history and natural beauty, Oman is a destination with plenty to offer its visitors.

    Tour Highlights

    • Take a dhow (Arabian boat) cruise across the Khor ash Sham (look out for dolphins!)
    • Roam the grounds of Khasab Castle
    • Haggle your way through Old Muttrah Souk in Muscat
    • Go off-road driving in Wadi Bani Khalid, one of Oman's most popular wadis (a ravine that is dry in non-rainy seasons)
    • Experience the unique design of the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque
    • Take in a show (or simply enjoy the architecture) at the Royal Opera House in Muscat
    • Camp overnight on the South Summit of Jebel Shams

    Travel Tips

    • As with many countries in the Middle East, members of the opposite sex are expected to avoid eye contact and touching. Members of the same sex greet each other with a kiss on both cheeks, or on the nose.
    • Whether you're looking to buy anything from spices to gold jewellery, be sure to not miss Oman's incredible souks. Haggling is expected - know what you're willing to pay and get ready to ask for it (you’ll get better with practice).
    • While you may see two men holding hands in public, this is a sign of close friendship in Oman. Homosexuality is illegal in this country.
    • While you should certainly pack your swimsuit to take advantage of Oman's many crystal-clear wadis, you should always dress conservatively outside the water. This means covering your knees and shoulders.
    • Coffee aficionados must try Omani coffee, flavoured with spices in lieu of milk and sugar and often served with dates.
