This 9-hour tour of Nizwa is the best way to get to know the most important castles of the Arabian Peninsula. From the “cultural capital” of Oman you can also visit an amazing, abandoned town.

Itinerary

After picking you up from your hotel in Muscat, we will begin our trip to the interior of the Arabian Peninsula to spend a day among the emblematic castles of Oman.

The first stop will be in Birkat Al Mawz, an enchanting and mysterious abandoned town constructed in the 17th century at the foot of the Jebel Akhdar Mountain, also known as the "green mountain". It will astound you!

Then we will head to the precious historic centre of Nizwa, the “cultural capital” of Oman. There we will see the exterior of the fortress, famous for its 360-degree cannon tower. We will also take a walk around the souk market before making a stop at a local restaurant to have something to eat and rest for a bit.

Then, we will catch the bus and head to the Jabrin Castle, constructed in the 17th century. It is one of the best conserved in the whole country and stands out for its carved wooden doors and beams. Remember to look up at the enchanting ceiling!

At the end, we will return to Muscat, where we will stop at the Oman Avenue Mall so that you can buy some souvenirs or have a drink. Finally, we will drop you off at your hotel in Muscat.
