Oman is a unique blend of time-honored traditions seamlessly interwoven with a flourishing modern landscape.

Here, modern architectural marvels coexist harmoniously with ancient minarets and Mihrabs, adorned by traditional domes and ornate arabesque windows.

Immerse yourself in the magic of Oman with our tailor-made tours. Oman promises an exquisite fusion of the old and the new, ensuring a memorable adventure.

Speak to the Expert

Oman’s devotion to traditional architecture lends the topography a delightfully elegant aesthetic that while slightly invariant, retains a distinctly ancient appeal that travelers would’ve encountered throughout the cities and towns of Oman hundreds of years ago.

Why we love private tours of Oman

Middle East Specialist

Tucked away amongst the mountains of the southeastern corner of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman could be considered one of the Middle East’s best-kept secrets. Embark on a luxurious tour, immersing yourself in vibrant cities, ancient Crusader forts, and otherworldly landscapes.

The capital city of Muscat is a delight for travelers, lined with white sand beaches along the Gulf of Oman, while atmospheric Nizwa retains an antique mystique, acting as a gateway to the ancient towns of Bahla and Jabreen, as well as a good base for explorative mountain trips venturing deep into the Akhdar mountain.

Elsewhere the Wahiba Sands form the sandy heart of eastern Oman, with towering dunes, some as high as 300 feet, reaching towards the Arabian Sea, and relieving travelers of any illusions that the dessert is without wildlife, as here you’ll find mongoose, gazelles, and myriad migrant bird populations.

Best time to visit Oman

As Oman offers varied climates for travelers throughout the year, the best time to visit will vary greatly depending on the activities you hope to enjoy and your personal travel preferences. Generally speaking Fall (September to November) and Spring (March to May) offer the mildest temperatures and are best for extensive sightseeing, however, you will need to contend with the larger crowds these seasons tend to draw.

Oman’s Summer (June to August) and Winter (December to February) seasons are less popular due to extreme temperatures but if you’re prepared to brave the elements, you’ll be rewarded with a more intimate experience. A complete season-by-season guide can be found below.

Your Oman questions answered

Are there any cultural customs I should be aware of while traveling in Oman?

In Oman, adhering to local customs enhances cultural respect. Greet with a smile, eat using your right hand, and avoid offensive gestures. Use an open palm to indicate something, seek permission before photographing anyone, and refrain from capturing military facilities. As a general practice, members of the opposite sex don’t engage in physical contact, so men should wait for women to initiate a greeting. When dining out, accept the offered hot towel for hand cleaning. Leaving plates untouched is polite; stacking them is discouraged. If invited to a private home, bring a small gift, remove shoes at the door, and graciously accept offered food.

What clothing should I take with me on my vacation?

With warm dry summers and mild wet winters, temperatures and clothing needs can vary depending on when you are visiting Oman. With the hot, humid weather we recommend wearing lightweight, loose, breathable clothing. Athletic wear designed to absorb sweat is especially good. During cooler months, these items can be used to create layers, and a lightweight jumper or jacket would be advisable.

Will Ramadan affect my vacation?

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is a time of reflection, prayer, and fasting for Muslims around the world. The month of Ramadan changes each year but usually occurs around April and May, sometimes into June. While most tourist sites will remain open during this time, you may notice reduced hours of working. More restaurants will be closed during the day as many Muslims will not eat during daylight hours. We would suggest being respectful of those fasting and avoiding as much as possible eating in public during Ramadan. The locals will appreciate it!

Do I need to obtain a tourist visa for Oman?

Citizens of many countries, including the UK, USA, and Australia can enter Oman for up to 14 days visa-free. For extended stays exceeding two weeks, you will need to apply for a 30-day tourist visa through the Oman eVisa website. These online visas must be used within 30 days of being granted.

Is Oman a safe destination for tourists?

Crime rates in Oman are generally lower compared to Western countries. Foreign visitors can ensure a stress-free trip by adopting a sensible, common-sense approach, much like they would when exploring any new city or country. Like in any part of the world, low-level petty crimes can occur in towns or cities. It is advisable to dress conservatively (as flaunting wealth is generally frowned upon) and leave any conspicuous items like large watches or flashy jewelry at home. Avoid openly displaying large amounts of cash; only withdraw what you anticipate needing for the day. The remainder can be securely stored in the hotel safe or withdrawn from ATMs as you move around.
