A Recent Review of this tour

Thought a day tour couldn't get better? Nizwa market (Friday only) a wonderful spectacle, followed by walk through souk & fort. Valentina has great rapport & respect for local Omani & relates well to them. Once again, a wealth of information, historic & current. Excellent local knowledge: driving through mountains, knowing where to go for a unique surprise for travellers. Views from Green Mtn exquisite: 'out of this world'. Highly recommend the tour & driver. Once again, healthy snacks & water too!
