Private Jebel Shams 4x4 Ride
You will enjoy an open vendor market at the Nizwa Souq, before seeing the Nizwa forts and museum. Next, your learned guide will present the spectacular views of Wadis from the Grand Canyon. This full day excursion is perfect for families, photographers, or solo travelers interested in a private Muscat tour.
Start this extravagant adventure when your driver picks you up for your private tour. He will take you directly to Nizwa where you will get to roam around one of the largest markets of its kind. The Nizwa Souq is filled with fabulous vendors, selling everything from meat and vegetables to coffee and handicrafts.
This is an ideal place for shopping and you might be tempted to get some souvenirs here as well! Arrive on a 5 and the souq will be showcasing its circus style cattle venue. Local villagers bring their cattle, sheep, goats and chickens to sell, making it a perfect way to experience the heritage. After shopping and exploring the souq, you'll have a tour of the nearby museum.
This museum was once the Nizwa Fortress and now offers visitors the chance to enjoy the lovely views from the towers. Roam around the many rooms inside as you get a feel for the strength this architectural masterpiece exudes. The Nizwa Fortress is symbolic of the economic achievements during the early Yoruba dynasty. To ensure their safety, even the corridors were lined with traps to deter intruders that might have broken through.
Then visit one of the oldest villages, Al Hamra before driving onto Jebel Shams Resort. This luxurious resort offers a picturesque rest area for you to unwind. Walk around the area as the breathtaking mountain views surround you. From the Grand Canyon of Oman you will see the valley and Wadis.
Book this vintage journey if you want your Muscat tour to be comfortable and worry-free, because private transportation will ensure that everything goes smoothly.

The tour that was a real eye-opener to Omani life, past and present. Our guide, Musab Al dugaishi, was “over the top.” Musab went beyond the script, explaining everyday life of the Omani people, their history and their food. We loved the karak and halwah. Thank you, Musab, you made on our experience in Oman memorable!
