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.
