Explore Nizwa on your own private guided tour. See all of the famous destinations, including the historical Nizwa Fort, the bustling open vendor market, and countless mosques.

Meet your guide in the morning at the cruise port gate to begin this day filled with historical sites and cultural experiences. Nizwa was the capital of Oman in the 6th and 7th centuries AD. Its deep connection to the roots of Islam give it a number of renowned mosques, such as the Sultan Qaboos Jama (5 Mosque). Included in your tour will be visits to these magnificent mosques. Much modernization has taken place as you will see through the improved highways, educational institutions, and hotels throughout the area.

Revel in the heritage as you stroll through the Nizwa Souq, the largest open market in Oman. The souq is famous for its array of products offered, including handicrafts, agricultural products, spices, and dates. Silver, gold, and other handmade jewelry items can be bought at the market, making it ideal for souvenir shopping.

The Falaj Daris is yet another stop in your day and is the largest falaj in Oman. It offers much of the water needed in surrounding areas and is a major attraction in Nizwa. All of these landmarks and much more plus a lunch break are included in this daylong adventure. As you dine at a local restaurant, absorb the local culture through the food you eat and the diverse array of people walking by. Your backdrop all day is the picturesque mountains adding to the overall Nizwa experience.
