Muscat - Nakhal Fort - Ayn Al Thawara Hot Springs - Muscat Sightseeing


Itinerary: Pick up from Hotel/Muscat Port gate. You will head towards Nakhal and Rustaq via Seeb. Nakhal is an old Omani village. It lies at the foothills of the mountains near an abundant source of water, which irrigates extensive date palm plantations. Visit the 17th Century Nakhal Fort and enjoy the invigorating waters of Al Thawara Hot Springs. Later we drive back to Muscat and Stop by at Grand Mosque for a Photo stop. Post this, visit the official residence of his Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, The Al Alam Palace, which is flanked by the 16th century Portuguese forts of Mirani and Jalali. We will then visit Muttrah Souq which retains the chaotic interest of a traditional Arab market albeit housed under modern timber roofing. Post this we will end the tour and drop you at Hotel/Port.
