In the morning meet with the guide at the hotel lobby and proceed on the tour.

This tour takes you first to Nizwa, the old capital of Oman. Here we will visit Fort 7 traditional market. The Nizwa Souq is among the largest of its kind in the country. Here you can find fish, meat, vegetables, pottery, jewelry, handicrafts, and souvenirs which are sold in authentic old market halls that few places can boast. Especially interesting is the Friday cattle market. Next to the Souq is the Nizwa fort. The fort is a museum today and offers splendid views of this ancient town and the surrounding mountains. The fort is an architectural testimony to the economic and military achievements of the early Yoruba dynasty from the mid-17th century.
