On this tour you will discover the beauty of the interior regions of Oman and visit Nizwa, the capital of the country in the medieval ages. The oasis city of Nizwa was once the capital of Julanda Dynasty in the 6th and 7th Century AD. Today it remains a popular destination because of its historical buildings and imposing fort. Memphis Tours will pick you up in the port in Muscat and drive you 145 kilometers to Nizwa for a tour of the fort, which was built in the 17th century. The fort dominates the entire area with the town having grown around its edifice. From the top of the tower one can see all of Nizwa. From here you will proceed to the Nizwa Souq which is renowned for its intricately hand-carved Khanjar and ornately designed silver jewellery. Then drive to Wadi Muaydin and discover the magnificent surroundings and traditional villages that are scattered through this valley. The next stop will be Jebel Akhdar where the climate is more Mediterranean and fruits, roses and vegetables all grow. Visit Diana’s Viewpoint and other highlights of Jebel Akhdar. On the way back to Muscat you will stop at the village of Birkat al Mauz. You have time to stroll around through the old ruins and along the Falaj system. This tour requires moderate activity, including some short walks. You will return to the port in the afternoon.
