A Recent Review of this tour

This tour, and its guide, Ali, are a must for anyone who want to spend a day exploring Oman's cultural heritage and natural beauty. A short ride away from Muscat, where Ali picked me up from my hotel, we went to the dates exchange market place and the fort. We then went up the mountain to explore some of the most beautiful scenery in the Arabian peninsula which included the Grand Canyon of Oman. After a hearty lunch, we stopped at 400 years old sites, then we drove back to Muscat. PERFECT!
