Along the way, stop at a charming ancestral village called Birka Al Mawz, which sits at the base of Jebel Akhdar (Green Mountain). In Nizwa, admire the central fort and its giant cannon tower; walk through the traditional souq (market); and, of course, enjoy a local restaurant for lunch.

Everything was perfectly organized. Qais, the guide for my trip, was extraordinary good: timely, best driver, providing a lot of interesting background information, with a good sense of humor, flexible, customer oriented. In a nutshell: if you can get Qais as your tour guide, you will enjoy it to the max.
