  • Why we love Oman

    • In Muscat, there’s a restaurant with a terrace overlooking Muttrah Harbour, right on the corniche. The fish market is directly opposite, so what else can you order but fish? A particular favourite comes baked whole with chilli and lime juice, washed down with a pomegranate juice
    • You’ll be entranced by the view across the harbour, the old dhows in the water and the houses lining the corniche
    • Sweeping desert views and camel caravans, date palm oases and intricate Islamic architecture
    • Oman is also fiercely proud of its history, as the restoration of its countless forts and other historical monuments testify. Visiting at least several of these is essential for anyone wishing to gain a proper portrait of Oman
    • The Omani character is one of the country’s central joys: an unfailingly courteous and gracious people, whether it’s in one of Muscat’s buzzing coffeehouses or among the Bedouin in the Wahiba Sands, in a country not short of spectacular sights, the welcome you’ll receive will be one of your most memorable moments

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number.

Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.
