Tour Itinerary

Day 1 UK-Muscat, Oman

After taking Saga’s included VIP door-to-door travel service to the airport, fly overnight to Muscat, the capital city of Oman.

Day 2 Muscat

Arrive in Muscat early in the morning and transfer to the locally rated 4-star Al Falaj Hotel. Sitting on the Gulf of Oman, and backed by the rugged Al-Hajar mountain range, Muscat is a beautifully preserved port city that contrasts historic character with contemporary architecture. 

Day 3 Muscat

After breakfast set off on an included city tour of Muscat. The highlight of the tour will be the Grand Mosque, a modern architectural wonder built for the Sultan Qaboos, and completed in 2001, to mark his 30th year of reign.

Day 4 Muscat-Nizwa

Depart your hotel after breakfast and begin your journey to the historic town of Nizwa. Pause en-route at the Seeb fish market for the chance to experience true Omani culture, before continuing to an Amouage perfumery where you can learn about the making of one of the world’s most expensive perfumes. Complete your journey with a stop at the Nakhal Fort.

Day 5 Nizwa

Today enjoy a full day of sightseeing, first visiting Bahla Fort, the only fort in the world to be granted UNESCO-listing, and then explore Jabreen Castle, admiring the impressive Omani woodcarvings and painted ceilings.

Day 6 Nizwa-Wahiba Sands

After breakfast visit the imposing Nizwa Fort and explore the bustling Nizwa Souq, selling a myriad of goods from fresh meat, fruits and vegetables, to spices, dates and silverware for which the city is famed.

Day 7 Wahiba Sands-Ras Al Jinz

Today you’ll set off for the east coast, stopping at Wadi Bani Khalid, a picturesque valley with green palm trees and turquoise pools – the perfect spot for a refreshing swim. Continue on to the Ras Al Jinz turtle reserve, a world renowned nesting location for the endangered green turtle, where you’ll stay overnight in the scientific research centre. 

Day 8 Ras Al Jinz-Muscat-UK

Depart this morning for Sur, historically an important destination for sailors, and today the sea stills plays an important role in daily life. Stop at the local fish market to watch the fisherman unload the catch of the day, and then explore the Dhow shipyard where authentic wooden ships are still built. Continue to Wadi Shab, a popular valley where locals come to swim in the fresh water pools. Transfer to Muscat this afternoon for your return flight to the UK and included door-to-door travel service home.
