Commences Dubai 17 November and ends Dubai 02 December 2019

 

Oman is both safe and welcoming, while offering a rich and satisfying taste of traditional Arabia at its most memorable. Our tour also allows us to take an exhilarating glimpse into the regions urban future, with visits to the modern wonders of Dubai and the culturally aspirational Abu Dhabi, with its splendid new Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and its stunning new Louvre Museum.
 

Many of us have passed through the United Arab Emirates, as we journey to or from Europe, but our Arabian Adventure allows us to learn more about Dubai's amazing architecture, including, the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, where we have the opportunity to enjoy a panoramic view of the city from the 124th floor. Naturally, we also visit the city's dazzling gold souk, take a ride on a monorail, see the massive new Dubai Marina and view the amazing Palm Islands complex. We also take the opportunity to discover the 'true' capital of the UAE, nearby Abu Dhabi, where we learn about this city's history and view its awe-inspiring cultural sites.
 

However, the main destination of our Arabian Adventure is Oman, home to numerous UNESCO World Heritage sites and a country steeped in history.

Our journey through Oman commences in the north, in the scenically outstanding enclave of Musandam, where the mountains rise straight out of the sea to create a magnificent fjord-like coastline. We next visit Muscat, Oman's confident, low-rise capital, home to the breath-taking Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, wonderful Mutrah Souk, 16th century fortresses and a grandiose Royal Opera House.

Heading south we discover the spectacular Wahiba Sands, a long and narrow strip of high dunes and woodlands located along an unspoilt coastline of eastern Oman before we continue through scenic mountain villages to visit Wadi Bani Khalid, one of Oman's most beautiful valleys.

We also view the oasis city of Nizwa, once the ancient Omani capital, in an important agricultural region, where we visit the city's imposing Fort, as well as Jabreen Castle, high in the Jebel Akhdhar Mountains. Finally, we explore Salalah, steeped in myths and legends since Biblical times, from where we discover quaint fishing villages, ancient forts, famous mosques and the ruins of the palace, reputed to have been that of the Queen of Sheba.

Mark is extremely excited to be leading our Arabian Adventure, so why not join him and learn something about the refreshing paradox which is Oman?
