Morning, you will be met at the hotel for a half day City Tour. The tour begins with a visit to the beautiful Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, one of the largest mosques in the Middle East. Then visit the Bait Al Zubair Museum, exhibiting the wealth of Oman's history and thus imparting knowledge about the country's rich culture and traditions to the visitor. Later you drive along the picturesque Corniche to the once walled district of Muscat. You will have photo stops at the residence of his Majesty Sultan Qaboos, the Al Alam Palace, which is flanked by the 16th century Portuguese forts Mirani and Jalali. Later, you will be strolling through Muttrah Souq, where you can bargain for handicrafts and silver items. Overnight at the hotel.

Day 3 - NIZWA - BAHLA – JABRIN
Today you will drive to visit the historic town of Nizwa, Oman's cultural capital. You will proceed to Jabrin castle which was built in the 17th century and is one of the finest of its kind. Its magnificent plasterwork, the carved doors and the painted wooden beams of the ceiling, makes this castle amazingly different. Thereafter you will continue to Bahla, one of the oldest small towns of Oman which in the 12th century was the capital for the tribe living in the region. As the monumental fort is closed for renovation, only a photo stop is planned. Bahla is also famous for its pottery and you will visit a potter's workshop (not possible on Fridays and Public Holidays). Drive back to Muscat and overnight at the hotel.

Day 4 - MUSCAT DEPARTURE
Embark on a fiber boat for a cruise through the Muscat coast to watch wild dolphins. Watching wild dolphins is a thrilling way to start the day, and the lucky may even come across one of the many species of whales that can be found just a few kilometers from Muscat's rugged coast. Not every trip guarantees a sighting, but you are sure to enjoy a trip out to sea, and enhance your knowledge about nature's most fascinating marine mammals. Soft drinks and water will be served on board. Rest of the day is at leisure. Overnight at the hotel.
