Add To Plan

Unveil the mystique of Oman during this scenic tour to some of its most popular historic, cultural and entertainment sites.

Depart the port for a drive on Oman's expressway, past the airport and along the Batinah Coast. Upon arrival at Fort Nakhl, which is perched on a 200-foot high hilltop, you will take in commanding and spectacular views of the surrounding oasis. This famous pre-Islamic fortress used to be the stronghold of the well-known Bani Kharous tribe during Medieval times, and offers a unique look into Oman's past.

Following a visit to the ladies' sitting room, walis, barzas, majlis, prison, and split-level terraces and courtyards, a stop will be made at the tranquil and picturesque Nakhl Springs. Majestic mountains, or jebels, and a dense green oasis frame the lovely surroundings around the warm springs. Your drive will continue on through the village of Nakhl for a photo stop at the Grand Mosque, Oman's largest and most exclusive mosque.

Your tour will conclude with a buffet luncheon served at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

Please note: This tour involves negotiating many steps at Fort Nakhl.
