The Frankincense Trail was a grand experience from the museum to the tree. Realizing the importance of this incense in trade through the centuries, helped one to appreciate the history of Oman, particularly Salalah. The guide was knowledgeable and curteous. Stopping to purchase camel meat to eat was an added treat. I highly recommend this tour to all traveling through Salalah.
