What you'll do

Pickup time at 08:00 AM in the morning. I will pick you up at any location near Nizwa city, before we start I will give you a brief information’s about the city history. We will then start our journey from the public square to the traditional souq “market” where we will see farmers selling their fresh products like dates and vegetables where I can communicate with locals to sell you best fruits and dates . The next thing is the Friday cattle market where you can see the live livestock auction and hold the small sheeps before starting the auction. After finishing from the souq we will visit my favourite place Nizwa fort to see the beauty of Islamic architecture and to see the whole city from the top of the fort watch tour. We also have a photo stop for the traditional music folklore to watch and join the dance while trying some of the local Omani food. Last but not least, we will drive to falaj Daris the biggest falaj in Oman, and one of the five collectively listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the sultanate, which refers to water that runs through a channel dug in the earth.Finaly I will give you my personal recommendation for the best restaurants in the city to try Omani food

Sultan was a great guide - knowledgable and enthusiastic. We visited all the major highlights of the town and he even arranged a trip the next day at short notice to some great places in the region around Nizwa. Highly recommended!
