If you are watching this review, trust me and please try best to arrange your Nizwa trip to Friday for joining this guided tour.(Since it Specialised for Friday Morning Market). You won’t be regret for your lifetime. Abudullah, the real Omani tour guide, he is the best guide I have ever met. Friendly, knowledgeable and has the decent English, you can know Oman’s culture and lifestyle very well by following a local master’s footsteps. I am very lucky to join this tour rather than the audio guided one. Thanks god. The morning market is absolutely a sugar of Nizwa, imagining serval hundred years activity is displayed before you, what a magical moment. The old village museum is also a must visit point, many interactive events is shown before you and let you riding on the Time Machine. The relics and terrain is also great to visit. This is a super cool stuff to immerse yourself to the Arabian world. This tour is absolutely a hidden gem of Oman!

it's awesome My friend and I booked this tour for a group. But it turned out that they told me that the bus for the group I was going to take was full. We were very lucky to have a private tour without paying extra. And the car that he picked me up looks great. Ayoub and another came to pick us up. They are very polite and kind. I have traveled to many countries and they are the best tours. They give you coffee in the morning. And on the way back I asked them about the local tea. They also gave me tea. They really do this job with love. Even though my friend and I are quite picky But they are willing to help us with everything. I swear this tour was really good.
