Oman

A land of mountains and sandscapes, endless beaches and lush wadis, Oman is one of the most beautiful and untouched parts of the Arabian Peninsula. This is authentic Arabia, forts and castles dominate the interior and care has been taken to maintain indigenous customs, local dress and Omani architectural styles. The old-world charm of Oman's white-washed capital Muscat is a particular highlight whilst the shifting dunes of the Wahiba Sands and Oman's extraordinary mountainous interior contain the historic fortified cities of Nizwa, Bahla and Jabrin as well as the finest castles of the Sultanate. Salalah, Oman’s southernmost city, has a subtropical feel and to the north the Musandam Peninsula is a majestic region of small villages, dramatic coastal roads and turquoise sea. Pettitts have led the way in designing tailor-made holidays and tours to Oman for over 25 years.

Customer Testimonial

We are now back in the UK, having enjoyed a wonderful trip to Oman. The itinerary worked out very well and the scenery in Oman was stunning.  We thoroughly enjoyed all the interesting places we visited. Our driver/guide – Mohammed – made the trip exceptional. Mohammed was calm, kind, helpful, informative, spoke very good English and was a joy to be with. Many thanks again to yourself, for putting together our itinerary at quite short notice – it was really great trip.
