4 day itinerary


I wonder if I could have some suggestions from the experts please?

We will be visiting Muscat for 5 nights and four days in November. Could anyone suggest a 4 day itinerary that would take in the main points of interest in Muscat, and maybe venturing to the desert for some 4 wheel driving and sightseeing.

Thank you!

Grand Mosque is a must !

since you have 4 days, you can visit some interiors like Nizwa, Jebel Shams (highest peak of oman). then you can have some off-road 4x4 driving, while visiting nearby wadi (streams), old forts, villages. There are quite a lot in that area.

for a desert drive, wahiba sands is the best !

Hello tripjunkieLondon

It will be good if you can rent a car and drive. Why not thinking about round trip?

Muscat - Ras Jinz (Turtles Reserved Area)

Ras Jinz - Bidiyah (Wahiba Desserts)

Bidiyah - Nizwa (Culture + History)

There will be many places to visit from each destination to another. Check out the link below;


Or You can stay in Muscat and do day trips but you won't be able to see all the above but you still can visit;

Muscat to Nizwa + Bahla

Muscat to Wadi Shab

Muscat to Rusaq+Nakhal +Wakan (4WD Needed).

Read the last part about Rustaq


If not, than try to contact some of the companies provided by Valentina Z.

You can also check out more companies in the link below;
