    Pickup time at 08:00 AM in the morning. I will pick you up at any location near Nizwa city, before we start I will give you a brief information’s about the city history. We will then start our journey from the public square to the traditional souq “market” where we will see farmers selling their fresh products like dates and vegetables where I can communicate with locals to sell you best fruits and dates . The next thing is the Friday cattle market where you can see the live livestock auction and hold the small sheeps before starting the auction. After finishing from the souq we will visit my favorite place Nizwa fort to see the beauty of Islamic architecture and to see the whole city from the top of the fort watch tour. We also have a photo stop for the traditional music folklore to watch and join the dance while trying some of the local Omani food. Last but not least, we will drive to falaj Daris the biggest falaj in Oman, and one of the five collectively listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the sultanate, which refers to water that runs through a channel dug in the earth. Finaly I will give you my personal recommendation for the best restaurants in the city to try Omani food.

We had the most amazing tour with our guide Sultan. He was so friendly and knowledgeable and took us to some really interesting sites. His english is brilliant and we learnt so much in the time that we spent with him. When travelling from place to place, we had really interesting chats in the car.

Our favourite moment was a traditional Omani picnic which Sultan had organised for us in the mountains. We didn't have to lift a finger! Our time with this company was worth every penny, it was such a varied tour which was customised completely to what we wanted to do so was very flexible.

Can't recommend enough and have already been giving the details to friends and family.

We came to Nizwa for one day from Muscat so we were looking for a guide who could help to explore this town. We asked for a 4-5 hours tour and received a great attention from Tijwal Majan staff who customized the tour upon our requests.
Our guide Ibrahim discovered to us a charming old town of Nizwa. We have been everywhere :) starting from Friday souq and up to places where Nizwa residents love to relax. We got a super experience with tasting halwa, coffee, traditional bread and having conversation with Omani people, thanks to Ibrahim. If you come to Nizwa I would highly recommend the guys from Tijwal Majan.

Sultan drove us in his car to many interesting and beautiful locations near Nizwa. We went for e.g. picknicking in the mountains, visited a beautiful Oasis and learned much and more about Omani culture. Sultan was very friendly, speaks fluently english and made us feel very welcome in Oman. We sure made a friend this day and can absolutely recommend to book a tour with this company.

We had a wonderful experience visiting Jabal Akhdar. The tour started at 7:30 with a pick up directly at our hotel in Nizwa. The car was a 4WD very confortable. We visited first the old village in Birkat Al-mawz including the « falaj » water supply system for agriculture. Then headed to Jabal Akhdar to visit multiple small villages. We returned at 17:15.

But few words here to thank our guide Ibrahim, from Nizwa. He is a fantastic guide, very friendly. We learned many things about Omani tradition, culture and history. He also offered us coffee that he prepared so meticulously and precisel, that was fascinating. He gave us many precious advices for the end of our trip in Oman. He speaks English very well, easy to understand and to exchange.

If you want to take that tour, ask for Ibrahim in Nizwa.

Tijwal Majan made my trip to Nizwa and surroundings unforgettable
I happened to travel alone and without a car an Tijwal managed to find me a local guide that would drive me around Nizwa and show me beautiful surroundings and drive me back to Mascate !

I highly recommend Tijwal Majan tours :)

We spent a wonderful day with Ahmed, the best guide we met in Oman. We went with his 4x4 safely drived up to the green mountain, we walked along falaj and gardens to an old mud village, we stopped in many places and we learned so many interesting details about the surrounding, culture, islam, history, sultan Quabos...
I highly recommand this agency.
